I am in the process of building a PC with removable 3.5" HDD trays in the front and install OMV.
My use case is thus:
- I have a synology NAS
- I am going to use the new build OMV as my backup
- I will have a mix of drives in OMV - both as EXT4 and NTFS**
- Every week, create a Rsync job to PULL info from Synology and write into NTFS & EXT3 (NTFS disks and EXT3 disks are data dupes) in OMV
- Unmount NTFS disks from OMV and use it as OFFSITE backup and swap another disk in its place (later mount and format to NTFS)
The above process allows me have a replicate of Synology NAS in my OMV (EXT4) as well as OFF SITE backup which can be read by Windows 10 (important) in the NTFS HDD.
I would appreciate feedback on the use case.
** I believe NTFS is not recommended but I want to use it any - Any issues?
