To preface this, I am not a particularly tech literate person but have messed about with OMV for a couple of years. I did the initial set up following a Techno Dad Life video and have also set up subsequent services following his great step by step vids.
I have a question about the best way of tidying up files and folders that are related to applications in dockers.
So I use the NAS to store some files in shared network folders, where I can add / edit / delete files from my windows machine using file explorer, no problems there. But I have a couple of applications running in dockers where the associated files need occasional pruning, I'm thinking here predominantly of Transmissions completed downloads folder and SoulSeek.
- For Transmission I get some folder detritus and files in the completed folder, that aren't picked up or properly imported by PVR services. I am unable to delete them from windows explorer, getting a "you need permission to perform this action" and " you require permission from servername\user1 to make changes to this folder"
- For Soulseek, a new service I am running based on old technology, I need to be a little more hands on as files are not downloaded in as organised a way, when trying to edit or delete files from windows explorer, I get a message "You need permission to perform this action" and "you require permissions from Unix user\root to make changes to this file"
What is the best way to go about managing files and folders in these cases?
Ideally I would like to be able to do this stuff through windows explorer but I'm happy to try anything as long as it is straightforward for me to learn and repeat (and there is some form of step by step guide)!
Thanks for you patience with help for what I am sure is a very basic question!
