    Could not login today, after trial and error found OS drive - 250 NVME - was full. Freed up some space and logged in. Wondering where the space had gone I ran:

    And then:

    Huge discrepancy - any clues as to why this should be?

    I have Tailscale installed in a Docker and installed via their curl script on other Linux devices. I can ssh into all devices remotely from WIndows laptop with Tailscale installed with no ports opened on router except 80 and 443. On the other devices I can connect using magicDNS e.g. - but this does not work on OMV. I have added the Tailscale DNS in the network settings but no difference. Not a huge deal as I can access OMV web interface remotely using SWAG reverse proxy - but why isn't this working?

    Another useful tip from the SnapRAID manual:

    "In Linux, to get more space for the parity, it's recommended to format the parity file-system with the -m 0 -T largefile4 options. Like:

    mkfs.ext4 -m 0 -T largefile4 DEVICE

    On an 8 TB disk you can save about 400 GB. This is also expected to be as fast as the default, if not faster."

    Therefore less need to worry about the data disks filling up as the parity disk is effectively bigger than them.


    just tried and hasn't solved problem.

    Before this I deleted all drives and readded with content and data on 6 drives and the other two parity. The conf file looks as it should.

    snapraid sync still does not add content file to drives 5 and 6, and drive 6 still is not mentioned in the end of sync report.

    The just added file would have landed on disk 6 due to mergerfs rules.

    I see disks 5 and 6 don't have a label is that relevant?

    I have just removed and re-added disk6 from the SnapRAID config page - the .conf file is updated. I added content to drive 5 - the .conf is updated. Bu these changes are not see on a sync:

    The .conf file has a weird name, could this be relevant?


    So the script seems to be irrelevant as doing snapraid sync from CLI also ignores disk 6 and the change to disk 5.

    The script is like the SnapRAID helper scripts you find but with more features it was written by a forum member (I think).

    I should have mentioned I tried sync from the CLI.

    Been using this and all good - until I add new drive through the OMV SnapRAID interface - disk 6 - which looks added. I tick the content and data boxes.

    I run the script and the output is:

    Disk 6 looks to be ignored (disk 5 does not have content).

    Any help appreciated.

    I bought a Topton mini PC with i7, TB NVME and 32 GB RAM. The NVME was defective, I couldn't get it changed- it would have cost a fortune to return - and in the end I bought a Samsung locally at my own expense. Not impressed with their after sales service.
