Can’t select sdcard directory for samba share

  • Device : Raspberry 4 4gb ram
    Os: Raspbian buster elite with OMV 5 installed using script
    Issue: SDcard directory not listed down/can’t be selected when adding samba share


    Hello, i wanted add shares folder from sdcard, basically as plex cache/nzbget temp folder before moving the files into external hdd.


    But I don’t see it listed under the drives selection.
    I’ve also selected the expand sdcard storage option in rasp-conf prior to installing OMV 5 beta.


    Is there anything else i need to configure in the settings?

    Consider that SD cards have a limited number of writes possible. That is why we use the flashmemory-plugin.
    If/when the number of writes is exceeded your data will get corrupted. Which is bad if it happens on your OS filesystem. I would connect a SSD for that.

    Yes, i intend to do exactly that. By cloning the sdcard into ssd
