    Hi Team,

    After some weeks on normal behaviour of the system (OMV5), I found that my main USB OS storage was at 90% of 32Gb.

    I checked the forum and other sources, and I found (in my case) what was the guilty.

    1st we need to know what folder is who has all this data:

    Via SSH:


    # sudo du -sh /root/*


    15G /root/app

    4,0K /root/docker-compose.yml

    76K /root/openmediavault-omvextrasorg_latest_all5.deb

    96K /root/proxy

    We see that Something inside folder /root/app does that this folder uses 15Gb, then, we need to be more accurate in our research, and can ask the same command inde the different folders as:


    # sudo du -sh /root/app/*


    104K /root/app/config

    2,1M /root/app/custom_apps

    15G /root/app/data

    80K /root/app/themes

    And, we will do the same for the next folder level:


    # sudo du -sh /root/app/data/*


    2,8G /root/app/data/appdata_oc6XX0sorXXX

    4,0K /root/app/data/Kli

    224K /root/app/data/files_external

    3,3G /root/app/data/iberGnl

    0 /root/app/data/index.html

    533M /root/app/data/mwnl

    7,5G /root/app/data/nextcloud.log

    638M /root/app/data/nextcloud.log.1

    As I don't know what is the blue one, I will don't touch it, but, the red line, talks about a LOG file of Nextcloud (running under Portainer via Stacks), and a LOG file, is something that we can sacrifice...

    Then, I tried with this command to delete the big file:

    Command: rm /root/app/data/nextcloud.log

    But, and error was returned:

    rm: is not possible to delete '/root/app/data/nextcloud.log': It doesn't exist as file or folder

    Then, I tried with the other logfile. .log.1

    Command: rm /root/app/data/nextcloud.log.1

    And then, when I asked for the folder information again:


    # sudo du -sh /root/app/data/*


    2,8G /root/app/data/appdata_oc6XX0sorXXX

    4,0K /root/app/data/Kli

    224K /root/app/data/files_external

    3,3G /root/app/data/iberGnl

    0 /root/app/data/index.html

    533M /root/app/data/mwnl

    16K /root/app/data/nextcloud.log

    Now, only one LOG file is present, and we rescued a lot of space.

    Sure that I something that is not well configured in my NexClould, but maybe it can be useful for other situation where you have this type of issue.


    Hope it will be helpful.

    Just today I updated the Nextcloud image (Nextcloud 20.0.5) under portainer, and SMB/CIFS service, with their shared folders were not able after reboot the Container.

    The error message:

    “smbclient” is not installed. Mounting of “SMB / CIFS”, “SMB / CIFS using OC login” is not possible. Please ask your system administrator to install it.


    “smbclient” No está installado. El montaje de “SMB / CIFS”, “SMB / CIFS que usan acceso OC” no es posible. Por favor, pide a tu administrador del sistema que lo instale.

    The solution is to enter into the console and reinstall the SMB Client:

    apt-get updade
    apt-get upgrade
    apt-get install smbclient

    wait ten seconds, and refresh the NextCould tab in your browser... and.... E voilà

    If you are newbie like me, this situation will scare you, but, and the end the solution is really very easy.

    Hope it will be helpfull.


    With the actual version 5.5.11, I have also network problems during the installation. And Extras were not able to be installed.

    With image version openmediavault_5.3.9-amd64.iso, all the problems disappear (at the moment).

    Network working properly and Extras were installed thru line command.

    Then I proceed to update all, and now the version is 5.5.15-1 (Usul)

    Now, I will proceed to install portainer, create users... etc...


    Instead EMBY, you can try Jellyfin. It is the same service with all free, (opensource).

    You can download this docker image: linuxserver/jellyfin.

    You will find also an Android Client in Play Store.

    If the HHDs temperature is fine, and the mechanical elements are working properly, the lifetime of the HDD will be longer.

    Google a little and fins any information about your HDD, and the best temperature.

    I put a small fan over my 8Tb WD Elements, and the temperature goes down from 53ºC to 42ºC when it was working doing long data transfer.

    (+info LINK)

    Hard Disk Temperature

    Less than 25°C:

    Too cold

    25°C to 40°C:


    41°C to 50°C:


    More than 50°C:

    Too hot

    In Smart Options, and Devices TAB, you will be able to see the actual temperature of your HDDs, if no temperature appears, it means the the HDD is in sleep mode since long time. You only need to open a file or something, and update the page and the temperature will appear.
