    Thanks Cabrio_leo,

    I did post a question in Urbackup.
    I dont get a a answer that fit the docker scenario.

    I received few answer where I have to modify some files in /var folder that of course, I dont have since I use docker.

    I will look into your suggestion.
    I need a solution where I can rely on a restore files only even if I create a all new machine.
    I can imagine an image will reproduce exactely same machine.

    But I need a file restore able to be restore in any other machine I create . Yes, some sort of password would be needed to avoid confusion among clients devices.
    Again, thanks.
    I will try to figureto restore the files in C:\Program Files\UrBackup\tokens

    I must make sure I dont loose my files 8)



    I run URBACKUP on a docker inside OMV 5.

    I backed up my computer as an image and as full file backup

    OMV is on a SSD on an expansion board on Rasberry pi 4b (cant just move the disk around). And all enclosed in a nice box.


    - I want to move my laptop from winsows to linux.

    - Restore files I need from the older backup made when on windows (obviously not all system file and no programs). Purely my documents and other files that I am interested at.


    How can I do that?

    A research on the documentation show a few examples. Mostly how to use the image backup and mount it as a virtual disk so to brows files.

    When installing a new urbackup client on a new machine, no backups are found from any older backups. (I believe is a normal behave as is a new client installation-no yet migrated but had mistakenly reinstalled client once-)

    Nor I can see a sort of restore button or a file browser to choose from.

    I cant figure out how to restore files previously backup into a new machine.

    I would like some help.
    Note I am not expert on Urbackup. Thanks for your understanding.

    Thanks for your help

    I've got a doubt: i've installed portainer. Where can i find OMV docker container?

    In this case, is the other way around: You instal OMV and than you install docker and Portainer.
    Not portainer and than OMV!

    If this last option is even possible I dont know!

    So... appreciate for your link reference.

    I am trying to understand the script and adjust it to my network needs.

    But I miss some explanations:


    10: I dont have a domain name. maybe I can use pihole.local?

    16: whos IP is this? pihole?

    27: whos IP is that? (in example is different from line 16. )

    28: as per line 10, would be the same ? ex.: pihole.local ?

    All lines from 39:

    Is it for a DHCP server? does this means that pihole would deliver IPs?

    If so, can we comment them out as I have a router tat gives IPs?

    no need to define gateway?

    Again, I probably make questions that for some are obvious... I guess not for me!

    If you or anyone would be willing to help out, Thank you.

    (It seems is not possible to post comments to the post [HOWTO] install PIHOLE on OMV5 using portainer WEBGUI on a MacVlan )

    .. quite a message here!

    I guess I dont know than!

    I thought a docker compose is code to add to the stack itself.

    I understand from you message (sounds quite upset) that is not.

    Could you point me out where is the docket-compose option in the left pane menu? (if there)


    all of my docker containers come from
    In there there is a docker-composer
    The contents of the docker composer I copy, adjust to my server and deploy the stack with it. Since they have been all version 2.x, I never had problems.

    This is my confusion.

    Where do I copy the docker-compose from to portainer?

    Thanks for you help


    I figure I can help others beginners like me that want to update Portainer to the latest version

    If a new version exits, when logging into portainer you will have a message notifying you about it.

    Keep reading to update portainer using the GUI and takes seconds.


    I dont know how to update portainer within my OMV 5 (on raspberry pi 4b ) without compromising any container.


    Go to

    - System -> OMV-Extras

    - Click Portainer and Install.
    Yes, install over installed version will pull the latest version and you will keep you containers as before.
    Just did it and worked out perfectly.


    "compose file version 3 is not supported"

    I have the above error when I try to deploy the stack

    .. and above the editor this is written (among other info):
    "Only Compose file format version 2 is supported at the moment."


    since this thread already exist, I figure is better to continue.
    if you consider is off-topic, I will create a new one.

    I am also interested on pihole.

    I noticed a latest docker-compose:

    However, this is Version 3

    I understand (please, correct me if I am wrong) that to run version 3 docker-compose, I need to install Swarm.

    But I also read around that can break previously version 2 installed images.. or some similar side effects.


    1 Is it true?

    2 any way safe I can install docker compose Version 3?


    so, here comes my report! :)

    I installed a  X825 for the Pi (…/images15/X825_1200p1.JPG). I reinstalled OMV with same procedure.
    Installed the omv system backup plugin and I am at the moment copying the image to my local drive.

    I am at 76% and going strong!

    I think we can define that the actual issue I had was the Sata case.

    Finally I am happy to have found the issue.
    In the previews installation I had also other issue with the docker stability ... portainer kept disappearing and therefore could not rely on any docker.

    I hope and think it is all related from the same Sata enclosure issue.
    I will continue the installation with docker and portainer in this new installation and see if keeps stable.

    In such a case, all I have to do is trash the case or use it as a local usb drive for my computer.

    I am going to set this as a solved issue.
    if something goes wrong, I will post again and re-open if is possible.


    can you tell me how to flag this as solved?
    Cant find any checkbox for it!

    That would suggest a power problem with the Pi, there was another thread on here linked from Reddit where a user was using a Pi4 with 5 2.5" drives attached to a USB hub, it was some sort of charging hub, but the output from the hub was sufficient to power the drives and the Pi via the Pi's usb c. Found the thread on Reddit he was using this hub

    Well... I dont have 5 drives but just one!
    Nevertheless, I will try the powered usb hub.
    I still consider that 1 SSD drive should be supported from the Pi. (5vdc 1.6A requested)
    As I mentioned on my Nextcloud, I have the exact configuration. however, the storage is not SSD but old type HD (2.5").

    Reading what you have just posted it would 'suggest' there could be an issue with the connectivity of the SSD to the USB, are you using a Sata to USB bridge adaptor.

    I use a sata 3 case.
    I also thinking might be the case issue.
    I read on the SSD disk: 5vdc 1.6A

    that should be ok for a raspberry pi!

    I soon going to receive just a sata3 cable to usb3.

    will test that as well


    I did got the usb case out of the Pi and directly to a computer. no issue transferring from same folder...

    Also some info re drive power consumption

    reading this posts looks like they refer to non SSD disks and.

    For a 2.5" SSD drive would be quite annoying to have extra power on a Pi. Specially when that is the only USB attached.
    Lets hope is not the case...
    There is one thing that actually bugs me; I also had Nextcloud with a 1T external drive attached and I do not have those issues for years.
    I would assume that the power consumption is equal if not higher (as that drive is not SSD). Yet I have no transfer issues or power issue (also same original power supply).

    Shouldn't I have the same power issue to each equal device?

    The inconsistency of this issue worries me a little!

    I will continue researching and testing.

    The downside to USB storage is they are reliant on the USB chipset in the enclosure, in my 'spares' cupboard I have 4 external USB cases, the drives are fine but they will not work in the case, so my assumption is the chipset has died. I have a USB docking station that I use primarily for hard drive upgrades so I can test the drives in that and 99 times out of 100 the drives themselves are fine.

    EDIT: that's a good point that raulfg3 makes, I'm guessing your WD is 2.5" therefore it would draw power from the USB

    Its a SSD and should use less power.
    Yet, I will make a new installation and use a power usb hub to check about it.
    This should supply to the possible Pi power supply issue and the Drive power request.

    I also have a second Pi and a second same drive. But a expansion board to be attached for a drive.
    I will give that a try and see if I have same problems


    Also using official raspberry pi power supply.

    hi geaves.

    its wired (Ethernet).

    but I noticed a far more disturbing situation.
    I noticed that along previews tests but I thought was jus a glitch...

    Suddenly my external storage is gone !

    The HD case flash, but OMV does not see it.
    I left it 2 day and 1 day never touched...

    I cant make the test you requested.

    I can re-install it again and do the test before the HD disappear again.

    However, that is a serious issue!
    Any suggestion is welcome

    I have a WD 3d nand blue storage (1T)
