  • You seem to use a NTFS drive, correct?

    I think it won't do, Linux don't deal with NTFS permissions well.


    As far as my knowledge goes, you need a (at least) ext4 filesystem.

    yup the drive is NTFS, to format it as ext4 do I have to wipe the HDD first then create a ext4 file system in OMV?

    That would be the easiest way.


    BACKUP YOUR DATA TO ANOTHER DRIVE

    Remove all shares associated with the NTFS file system.

    Unmount the file system

    Delete the file system

    Go to drives

    Do a quick wipe of the drive.

    Go back to file systems

    Create a new ext4 file system on the drive.

    Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.
