Device not visible when creating shared folder (drive mounted in web interface)

  • Hi,


    This is a problem I have seen a lot of threads of, but a lot of them were because of mounting manually instead of using the web interface.


    I'll explain my problem.


    After experimenting a bit suddenly my omv wouldn't boot anymore, so I made a clean install. It's installed on a raspberry pi 2 on the SD card.
    The installation went flawless, I plugged in my 2 external drives, both mounted successfully, but when creating shared folders, I could only select the first drive, not the second one. After a lot of research and trying some things, I made no advancements. (I have almost no experience in debian command line, so I didn't really know what I was doing).
    To isolate the problem, and making sure I did nothing wrong, I did an other clean install, let it boot for the first time without any drive connected, everything went normal. I connected the drive I had a problem with, mounted normally, but still it didn't showed up when creating a shared folder.


    My problem is quite similar to those who are mounting their drives manually, but I only use the web interface, so that is the reason I started this new thread.


    Both my drives are formatted ntsf, and already contain a lot of data, so reformatting is very difficult to obtain. (I want to try it, but really as a last hope)


    Thanks in advance for any help!

  • Are you able to access the mounted volume via SSH?
    You can access it via


    Code
    cd /srv/dev-disk-by-xxx/

    Where xxx is the unique identifier for this mount.

  • After having a lot of troubles just to use this command, I thought I was failing to use this command because there is a space in the label of the drive. So I changed the label of the drive, and this solved my problem! I can now access the drive in the shared folders menu.


    Thanks!

  • Hi,
    I wrote:
    cd /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Storage/


    maybe it is also possible with:
    cd /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-46784656784644C1/

  • I'm experiencing the exact same problem.
    Able to mount the disk under File Systems, but when I want to access it in Shared Folders, there's no possibility to use the device.


    cd /srv/dev-disk-by-xxx/ brings back a No such file or directory.

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried ntfsfix /dev/xxx

  • when I unmounted it in filesystem and try to remount I have to click twice on mount and it give me an error with the yellow sign the config has been changed but I cannot applied it but before hitting revert I can see the disk is visible in shareholders?

    The configuration has been changed. You must apply the changes in order for them to take effect.
