    The plugins aren't filling your OS drive. What you do with the plugins might but most that would fill the drive can be changed. My dev VM has a lot of plugins installed and is only using 2.5GB. If you are using docker, you should change the path to a data drive.

    omv 5.6.0 usul | 64 bit | 5.4 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 5.5.3
    omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github

    Hello thanks for your answer so for docker i know i can change the config path and i did it but for example i have installed plex and plex install a lot of thing in /var/lib so its in my os drive i would like to change that but i don't know how

  • Yeah if 16gigs isn't working for you, you have some sort of configuration issue. I've got quite a bit going on on my server as well, and I'm using just 2.2gigs.

    Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.

    Are you using the Plex docker, or the Plex plugin?

    I use the plex plugin not plex on docker
