Low Transfer Speeds

  • openmediavault-usbbackup is a core OMV plugin that backs up to or from a usb drive when it is plugged in.


    openmediavault-backup is an omv-extras plugin that can backup the system drive to a data drive, allow booting from multiple ISOs (clonezilla, systemrescuecd, partedmagic, gparted live), and has undelete utilities (photorec, extundelete).

  • Ok, the other way round. ;) I've been using omv-extras for such a long time that I obviously couldn't remember which one is on board and which one comes from the extras.

  • Thanks, I used

    Code
    apt-get install openmediavault-usbbackup

    to install it. My flash drive has served me pretty well over the last two months, and since i've installed AutoShutdown I'm not that worried that it will get busted. However, I will keep a data backup just in case seeing as there's a long history of flash drive malfunctions. :) Cheers mate, and thanks for the advice.

    Hi David,
    The actual problem is that my transfer speeds are pretty low.

    Yup. One indication that your USB Stick may be near death.

    Hahaha, thanks for that thought mate. I'll be splitting the internal HDD and installing Debian and then OMV on top of that like how @datadigger suggested when I've got the time. Should have calm winds and a smooth sail afterwards.

    Be prepared for that moment and have a working backup in the locker. When the flash drive dies you only have access to your data if you install OMV the same way, on a flash drive again.

  • What are you talking about? It does not matter if he uses a brand new SSD or an old HDD or a flash drive to get to his data IMHO. One does not even need to use OMV to get the data back.


    Start to read again from the beginning. He is running OMV on a flash drive connected to a notebook and the build-in harddisk contains the storage. So tell me any other way how to access the data on the storage without ripping the disk off.

    Thanks again and cheers mate :D I backed up everything to an external HDD, I'm all set for the Apocalypse 8)


    @WastlJ OMV runs in a flash drive and the data partitions are in the internal HDD, if I want to reinstall OMV on top of Debian in the intenal HDD, i'll lose my data.

  • Oh well, you guys are the best. ;)
    Of course you can use an an external disk for installing, if it is available. Not everybody has more than one laying around, only freaks like you and me have five or more. Only the kind of media is different, the way to install remains the same.


    Live-CD is of course possible, too. I even would prefer that, because copying data that way doesn't need another installation. Just didn't think about that, thanks for pointing that out.

  • Hold on, your saying I can run OMV from a Live CD? =O But how? OMV won't be able to write any changes onto the disk would it?

  • Ohhh hahaha now i get what he meant. :thumbsup: Another method to access the data. I use Hiren's BootCD and Ultimate DLCD Boot for stuff like that.
