SMB Connects to RasPi SD card instead of External Drive

  • Hi Everyone,


    I recently made a RasPi Plex server with OMV5. Everything works except i cannot transfer files to the external drive. When i use SMB/CIFS it connects to the SD card of the RasPi instead of the External Drive.


    I have shared the proper folders with guest access allowed, with no luck.


    I must add that after i installed raspbian on the sd card, i used the expand drive function (?) to expand the sd card to use all the space available. Would this be the issue?


    any help is greatly appreciated!


    thank you!

  • When i use SMB/CIFS it connects to the SD card of the RasPi instead of the External Drive.

    Then something somewhere would suggest you have created/setup shared folders incorrectly


    Post an image of: file system page, shared folders page and smb/cifs shares page

    Raid is not a backup! Would you go skydiving without a parachute?

  • You were right! i double checked the folders and it told me my drive was offline. then i physically walked over to the drive bay and it was off. i turned everything on and reconnected and now everything work!


    Thank you!
