    Then that would suggest the file system or the virtual drive is corrupted, the usual way to repair this is to use fsck, will that work in this case I don't know never had to do it.


    So the norm would be to ssh into OMV and run fsck /dev/sdb sdb being the drive that is missing a file system.


    There is also a way to clone a virtual disk in VB, but again I've not had to do it, that ensures that there is a backup.

    any idea what can be done

    Have you checked Update Management and installed all the updates

    yes, i did that today again. I even did it manually on the system.

    i tried to use the vhd on another box but it did not allowed to mount it with error that the current UUID is already in use

    Then it doesn't behave the same way, hm! learn't something, TBH the only option I can think of is to create another VM for OMV, just call it a different name, remove the vhd from the current OMV install and add it to the new.


    If that doesn't work you can extract the img from the the vhd using 7zip, then I think you can mount the img in windows using Ext2Fsd, again this is guess work. Or post the problem in the VirtualBox forum, I only use my VB for testing never as an operating system.


    Why have you installed OMV in VB on Windows, and you don't need a 32GB vdi for OMV.

    thanks for all support. I am just a beginner for OMV. I was testing it and it looks fine for few days. Instead of doing back I pushed some of the files directly to OMV and lost them. A good learning for newbie :)

    fsck did not work. says possibly no existant device

    will try it later and paste the outcome here

    thanks for fast response.

    Yes, the drive is still shown in storage.

    The second part of your question, I dont understand, therefore attaching the screenshot. sorry for that.

    Please bare with my technical knowledge. I have recently installed OMV on virtualbox. Everything went smoothly. Thereafter, I guess I changed the user authorization via ACL and now the status of my drive show missing. Myfirst question to how I can resolve this?

    and second question is, can I retrieve the data from the system directly via SSH etc?
