Transmission downloaded files cannot be seen/accesed

    • Transmission downloaded files cannot be seen/accesed

      Hello

      New to OMV here , just bought a HP Z400 server , set up OMV 5 with Plex, Nextcloud , Transmission.
      Everything working nicely , except one thing:

      Installed transmission through portainer , all went ok.
      Tranmission GUI working, dowloaded 3 movies.

      BUT , when I want to open/see movies , NOTHING THERE
      Default folder for downloads is /dowloads.
      I can see folder on my network (given access sambashare ... etc)

      See Attached photos .

      Even downloaded one movie trying to change the folder to be downloaded --- still nothing ...

      Can anyone help?forum.openmediavault.org/index…11e02ff3409d4b618b720308cforum.openmediavault.org/index…11e02ff3409d4b618b720308c

    • Makes me wonder where the files did get downloaded to - inside the container itself perhaps? Check the size of it on disk, restart it and check the size again. If the files did go there and they are not stored persistently they should vanish with a container restart.

      I've done it a few times on accident on my virtual machine. If he goes to /srv
      and does an ls, he'll find there's a directory created with the /dev-id-4RbData/whatever. Depending on how much he downloaded and how small is OS drive is, he'll want to delete that directory at the command line level, because it's probably on his OS drive

      That was true .. did check it out... thanks for your reply.
      I've deleted that folder now with PUTTY ("rm -rf dirname" .... this way I am learning Linux too :) )

      BTW my OS drive is an 120 Gb SSD , but still , without your post some 6 Gb of files would have hanged around on it :)

      Obviously a 120gigs, you're not gonna miss 6gigs (especially when the OS takes up barely 3 in most places)... but when you're talking about some of the folks who are using 16gig flash drives, or some that are pushing it with 8gig.. they would notice.

      It's an easy mistake to make. Usually what has happened to me on my virtual machines.. When I'm testing docker compose files I've written for my actual server.. and when I test them on my virtual machine, I forget to adjust the volume paths in my compose file for my virtual machine... since that volume doesn't exist on my virtual machine, my docker compose file creates it... and I end up in a similar situation to you before I catch it.

    • Well, it's got a ton of stuff on it too. Probably a lot of unneeded cruft as well. It started out as an OMV 2.x machine and has been upgraded to 3, 4, and now OMV v5

      In theory I can make 2 partitions on it , and use the rest of it , but as far as I know not a good idea to use OS disk for other than OS.
      Many do. Me too.
      I think it is more separate filesystems for OS and data than separate disks.

      It is what is missing for the moment on My OMV server ... and some users ( :D :| :| ) suggested me I should get one ....
      Look in the Guides section of the Forum.

      Please start a new thread next time.

      It's a pretty good idea if you're downloading movies, etc.

      You can either install an ovpn docker, set up your vpn service, and then route your download programs through it... or select your VPN (I've had PIA for years) and just find a container that combines VPN and a torrent program (assuming you only need it for torrents)... I prefer deluge, but have used both and neither are incredibly difficult to set up, just read their pages thoroughly.
