    cat /mnt/gentoo/etc/fstab

    cat /mnt/gentoo/etc/snapraid.conf

    I would boot systemrescuecd and do the following:

    - mount a drive to recover files TO: mount /dev/sdXY /mnt/backup
    - change to that directory: cd /mnt/backup
    - extundelete --restore-all /dev/sdWZ

    Substitute XY and WZ for the actual partition letters and numbers. You may have to run it more than once if the files were in a pool covering multiple disks. If you post fdisk -l and cat /etc/fstab, I can help more.

    So i downloaded Systemrescuecd, bootet and used commands fdsik - l and cat /etc/fstab

    I also installed another 3 TB HDD ( Toshiba) to put the backup files onto.

    fdisk -l

    cat /etc/fstab

    ## PLEASE EDIT THE FSTAB at /mnt/gentoo/etc/fstab ##
    tmpfs / tmpfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto 0 0

    I will write to the Snapraid Author aswell, but friends told me Snapraid is only usefull i've i loose data on one hard disk. I've i loose data on two hard disk at the same time, there is no chance to revert it properly with only one parity drive. I don't know why, but i now tried the second time FIX command and it always gives me unreacoverable.....

    As im not familiar with the linux comands ( therefore i asked about photorec) do you know a good tutorial for extundelete ?

    Anyway thank you for your help and the explanation.

    Hi Guys,

    i guess it happend like this:

    i have a pool folder called storage. In this folder i have different subfolders like: , movies, anime etc.

    After the calibre installation i wanted to created a new shared folder in this subfolder called ebook. but instead of putting the path like: //storage/ebook it was //storage.

    So Calibre took over the ownership of everything in the subfolder.

    When i realized my mistake i first removed the shared folder created wrongly for calibre. Then im asked to only delete the share or also recrusivly the whole folder. I've chosen only the remove the share.

    Till this point everythin was still ok and the data still existing.

    But then when i uninstalled Calibre i guess while deleting the User Calibre it also deleted everything with the ownership of calibre ?!?

    Maybe this was my mistake or problem :-(

    But i thought with Snapraid it would be no problem to get the data back...but maybe i missunderstood something as i only received a few gigs back :-/

    Is "extundelete" similar to photorec ?

    Hello Guys,

    i really need your help, cause since yesterday im missing about 6 GB of Data ( Mostly *.mkv & *.jpg) on my system.

    Here is my setup:

    1x 60 GB SSD with OMV installed
    1x WD RED 3 TB as Parity
    3x WD Red 3 TB as Content + Data

    The diskspace on my 3 Content + Data drive has been like: Disk 1: 92% Usage Disk 2: 94% Usage Disk 3: 50 % Usage.
    The diskspace on my Parity Drive is: 90 % Usage

    On Saturday i did a full sync with Snapraid. The result was 12 writing erros. Therefor i run scrub in Snapraid. Scrub ran without any problem and i still had access to all my data. Yesterday i installed Calibre and made a mistake while choosing the correct folder. Therefore caliber changed the ownership for half of my files and in the end my system crashed while uninstalling calibre.

    For me it was no problem, i just run clonezilla and restored an backup of the OS before the installation of calibre.

    After the backup booted i was pretty shocked, as on my Datadrivers nearly everything was lost. Disk Usage on Disk 1: 20 % ond Disk 2: 25 % and ond Disk 3: 50 %. Parity is still 90%

    Only the Data on Disk 3 still fully exists...the rest on the other two disks is more or less fully gone.

    I then tried with snapraid FIX to recover the data. After 12 hours of running it finished today, with restoring about 100 gb of 6 TB !!

    I've checked the disks and according to Crystal Disk they are fine so i don't know where the data has gone or what happened to it.

    Is there any other way to recover my data then using snapraid FIX ?

    you might have to create the directory by yourself.

    You can just use WinSCP and then create the directory vnsiserver in /var/lib/vdr/plugins/

    Hello Ollie,

    eine Question:

    Is in your root password the letter "z" or "y" included ?

    As im from germany, during the installation of OMV the english keyboard charset is activated. If you enter an Password with "z" or "y" the letters are mixed. If you then try to login with SSH you have to mix the letters.

    Have you enable FTP in OMV ?

    The easiest way atm would be to go to OMV Webif, then Enable SSH and check the mark Allow Root login ( erlaube root login)

    Then connect with and modify the file.

    With SMB as far as i know you cannot get acces to the root directory nor the HDD where the OS has been installed.

    Give it a try with Winscp

    I don't know how many sat positions you can scan. For me with my card on Astra 19,2 it takes about 40 minutes to perform a full scan. Normaly after i finished the scan you can press close, wich has been greyed out before. Then you can click on the reload symbol and you should see the channels

    I really love this setup because im also running an Asrock C2750 in the same case...the only change to my setup is im using an WD Red and an DVB Sky 952 Dual DVBS2 Tuner Card.

    But i had to change the fans, cause the stock ones are pretty load with 35db during load.

    Hi Ollie,

    normally the initial scan takes very very long time.

    Sure it has stopped ?

    Normally if he finds any new signal it shows a message like:

    new transponder:
    (S f = 11626 kHz V SR = 22000 5/6 0,35 QPSK) 0x4043

    But anyway you do not have to perform a full channel scan.

    You can create your own channels.conf throug

    Then just copy this file to: /var/lib/vdr/channels.conf

    for normal usage of VDR ( fta channels) you won't need any softcam or plugin. To watch encrypted channels you will need indeed a sc and other things, but i don't think this is the right place for talking about this topic.

    an then friday night/ saturday morning some crazy german guy is whining about Plex not running......but u are right...the for me the last three days in business made me feel like 1 year older

    It seems that Plex Media Server isn't running (no process found).

    Still not working....

    now the error message slightly changed to:
