Partition missing?

  • Hi,


    I'm trying to format a partition and start fresh with it, So i deleted the share the SMB but when i go to delete the folder in the "Shared Folders" it doesn't give me the option, the "Delete" button is greyed out, i then checked under the "file systems" tab and it says the drive is missing? i then checked under the "Disks" tab and it say the drive is there?


    What am i doing wrong?

    Normally if its in red it's bad!!!


    Machine 1 - Dell OptiPlex 790 - Core i5-2400 3.10GHz - 16GB RAM - OMV5

    Machine 2 - Raspberry PI4 - ARMv7 - 2GB - OMV5

  • when i go to delete the folder in the "Shared Folders" it doesn't give me the option, the "Delete" button is greyed out

    To delete a shared folder, there must be no service pointing to it. Check them all, rsync, etc.


    i then checked under the "file systems" tab and it says the drive is missing?


    If the drive is missing from the file system, something else is going on. What is the last thing you did? What hardware do you have? How are the disks connected? ... I think it would be a good idea to provide some more information.

    The best thanks to the help provided is to report what your solution was. The next one will thank you :thumbup:

    Thank you for your reply, i have checked everywhere i could think of rsync, FTP and found nothing, checking under the "Shared folder in use" tab i found this

    also found i think one of my portainer containers had this down as storage, would that effect it?

    That's the thing all i did was delete the folder from the SMB list

    The drive is connected via sata connection, would it be worth me disconnecting the drive and using another machine to format it and then plug it back in?
