I have an HDD that had previously been installed in a windows server. It is formatted as NTFS. I had tried OMV 2.1 and began having issues with LetsEncrypt certificates not displaying in the list of SSL certs. At this point, I have the HDD attached as desired with several different services using the Shared Folders. I decide to install OMV 3. I shutdown the system, unplugged the NTFS drive, installed OMV 3. After all was operational, I shut down and plugged my drive back in. Re-powered the system and I see the drive under Physical Disks AND under File Systems. The file system IS mountable, so I mount it. I then proceed to create a Shared Folder... But no device displays in the list... So I restart... Still no go... I have searched Google and these forums, but other issues seem to involve RAID or ZFS or something else that doesn't exactly match my scenario. I have found on the WiKi that a Drive must be clean before building a Shared Folder, but this can't be true because I had no issue with the same drive under OMV 2.1 and I didn't clean it THEN. I thought about deleting the File System, but I saw a message stating that data will be deleted... Woah, nope can't do that, I have over a TB of data that I don't want to lose.
I am ready to start over again and put OMV 2.1 back on, but will I have the same problem? How do I share the drive if it won't show in Devices?
