Running OMV on a Pi with a USB drive ( 500gb ). Working perfectly.
Recently upgraded Laptop ( Win 8.1 ) HD to SSD and the old HD was Cloned to the new SSD ( both ~460Gb - I assume 500Gb with some reserved space ).
Old Laptop HD has been returned in a USB enclosure.
I can plug the old HD in to a different PC and use that drive, but not in to my Laptop - something to do with the ID of the SSD and the ID of the old HD being the same ( ? ).
So wanting to use the old HD in the USB case to backup my OMV HD ( which is used as my NAS ).
Want to do a 'once a month' backup / copy / clone and then remove the old HD and put in safe storage.
What is the best solution that I can run on OMV ( on the Pi ) to do this ?
Should I re-format the old HD on a different PC first ?
What file system ?
Should I add as a hard drive to OMV and format it there ?
Should I be using some OMV Copy utility, Duplicati, or something else to copy ( or mirror ) the OMV drive to the old HD ( now in usb case ) ?
And lastly, is there a way, in OMV, to change the ID ( or is it MAC address ? ) of the old HD so that I could access it on my laptop again if needed ?
Appreciate any pointers. Regards
