Unable to select mounted device from dropdown

  • Thanks for the feedback.
    How did you come up with this solution?

    I googled around and tried different things, what ever i did I could not mount my device using webui and then i found the ntfsfix command and after i wrote that one i could now mount my device.


    The next problem was that i couldn't see my device in shared folders, then i wrote omv-confdbadm read conf.system.filesystem.mountpoint and now i could see it.


    Since im a noob to Linux, i don't know if this is the solution to his problem, but some how it worked for me after spending many days trying to figure this out.

  • When I tried this, I got an error message:


    "Refusing to operate on read-write mounted device /dev/sdb1."


    Any other ideas?


    Also, here's the response from my other command. Note: the Toshiba drive is working; the JMicron drive is not.

  • 3. /dev/sda1 - 1.82 TiB ntfs labeled "TOSHIBA EXT" - mounted:yes, referenced:no, status:online


    I had the same problem where a volume would mount but not show up in the drop down lists in the WEB UI.


    The NTFS volume that I had mounted contained a space in the label just as Donny's does in the quoted text above.


    I unmounted and changed the volume label to remove the space, then remounted and voilà, problem solved.


    Hope this helps someone.


    PS: ntfslabel /dev/sdxxx newlabel
