    Thanks again macom I had messed up a permission. Steep learning curve but getting there. Plex not working complete with the files that I took from the old PC running windows, so didn't have to go through the whole sorting thing again. Next one for me to tackle is handbrake. 8)

    Thanks macom for your input. I have set it up as mentioned and I have set up Plex and it seems to be working which is great. I am having a problem though. I want to copy my metadata files from my old plex server to this new one, which I though would be easy, not so much.

    I have the config folder shared so I can see it on my windows 10 PC and I have the share set up for read and write everyone. I can browse into the folder and all of the subfolders so I figured all was going to go well. This is where it ended, it won't let me copy the files in, it comes up with you need permission to perform this action. Which I do not understand based on everyone can read and write, I'm sure *I am doing something daft but can't think what.

    Hi all, I'm about to install OMV5 having just finished my build.


    The storage I have is as follows


    32gb Thumb drive


    500gig NVME M.2


    3 & 4tb wd red drives


    3 & 4tb normal seagates.


    I was thinking about installing onto the thumb drive, putting the dockers onto the NVME drive. Using union fs to join the two reds together and then joining the two normal drives together assuming this is possible so ending up with two 7tb drives and then using the reds as storage and the normal drives for backup. Does any of that sound like the way forward.


    If this seems correct would I put the appdata folder on the Dockers drive or on the storage drive. As you can probably tell this is the first time of using OMV or anything like it. So any help would be gratefully received. Also if there is any other shared folders that need to go in a particular place this would be useful to know. I have spent the last few days watching all of the videos and got confused with the folders, maybe watching all of the videos in one go did not help me. =O


    Sorry if you have all been asked this to many times already, I have searched but may have missed it.

    Hi just about to build my NAS and after much research I have decided to go with OMV, it seems it will easily do what I need. I will be just using it as a plex server, handbrake and backing up my PC to. The drives I have right now are a 500gig M.2 for the os, a 4tb WD red a 3tb WD red, I also have a 4tb normal pc grade seagate. For this use would I be better adding the two reds as raid 0 and then sticking the 4tb in a caddy for doing backups of the important don't want to loose stuff. It seems to me after reading various posts that doing any other Raid just reducing the amount of storage I will have, but also need to do backups anyway as the Raid is not a back up solution. I don't mind buying more drives if it is considered necessary to do either raid 1 or even 10.


    Sorry if this has been asked many times, but I figured if I added what I was using it for I might get an answer suited to my user case.


    Many thanks for any help.
