Hi all, new user here and apologies if these are super basic questions but I can't seem to find any answers? I've just got up and running OMV5 on an RPi4B with a 4TB NAS drive and now I'm a bit stuck with how to achieve what I want to achieve! There's loads of great videos explaining how to install and get OMV up and running which is great, for literally every docker, container, software etc but none that I can see explaining which ones to use where and when! I could do with some advice on what the best thing is to use for my pretty simple needs?! Of course I'm aware that there are many ways of skinning a cat, but some pros and cons for each would be great!
What I'd like to do is to use the NAS as a backup to the 4tb drive in my PC, and I've also got a 2tb external USB as another backup for really important docs and photos as an offline backup (i'd just plug it in and manual backup). I'd also like to be able to access my photos from anywhere and have them synced between PC, NAS and be able to access them from my phone/laptop etc. I'd also like to automatically backup my camera photos to a folder on the NAS, that will be synced with the PC - every now and then I'll go back in and sort them into folders to be stored in the normal photos library. I've got some movies and as a stretch project, it'd be nice to be able to watch on my TV with it's built in Plex app.
So, having done some research and reading around I've been looking at Plex to arrange the photos, videos and a few movies I've got and then Nextcloud to do the syncing between PC/NAS? But I read that it may be better to use Syncthing to sync the folders, then use nextcloud on top for a nice gui? Or rsync?!
Apologies for the long post, but there's lot's of options and I'm not too sure of the best way forward! As I said, there's loads of videos explaining how to install stuff, but not many I could see explaining which ones to use where/when? I've got OMV5 installed (thanks TechnoDadLife!) and I am sharing some folders, so that's all working and I'm pretty happy with installing stuff and getting it working, but what to use?!
