    Well, I completly reinstalled OMV (since I was playing around with docker containers and messed it up a little bit) and tried rscny, again. Took 3 days do backup my disk. Poorly I cannot see in the rsync menu when it run last time (two days after finishin it should have been run scheduled...).

    Just reinstalled ARMbian on my Banana Pi M1 and freshly installed OMV5 (formerly I run v4).
    I wonder which might be best for backing up my whole device: rsync, Rsnapshot or BorgBackup, since all of them are available using OMV extras.

    Id like to create a whole backup of my 4TB drive onto my 8TB USB drive, after this Id like to run incremental backups every first or sevond month - but trigger the backup manually (because I wanted to disconnect the 78TB usb drive between the backups).


    What would be your choice? And how to setup?

    Or should I go for the USB backup plugin?

    Hi,

    I just bought a neu external drive which I configured as backupdevice for rsync.

    Looks like it's working find, but when I close my webbrowser (running the OMV-GUI), rsync will fail to finish nor can I see it's status.


    Are there any improvements worg-in-progress or is there any option I can start rsync manually and it won't about when closing the GUI?

    I can see my share. But it's only a link.

    Hey fellows,
    I wonder if it's time to buy an RPi 4.
    Runing an old Banana Pi M1 for ages (since 2014) and it offers enough power for me.


    As I just upgraded my computer I wonder if a RPi4 would be suiteable to run OMV along Steam Link, so I could move my NAS to another room and use it both, headless as OMV, with connected FullHD projector to stream games any play them with a wireless XBox 360 gamepad.


    Any idea if there's any stable OVM for RPi4, soon?
    Will I get performance issues?
    Planning to buy the 4GB version and running it over ethernet (no wifi!).

    Using another USB-port on the USB-hub it shows:

    Now it works, again.
    Looks like one USB-port died...

    Hi,
    two weeks ago I was abroad for holiday. When leaving homw, I turned all fuses in my flat off - and forgot to shutdown my Banana Pi Nas based on OMV.
    When I turned it on again yesterday, my Banana Pi couldn't find my attached USB 4TB WD drive.
    On the admin panel the disc even didn't exist.


    The drive is attached using a powered USB hub.
    lsusb shows:

    The HDD is rotating and my 7-port USB-hub is connected to my Banana Pi.
    What else could I check?

    Before I'd do an upgrade, I'd always backup the card ;)
    Buying a new one is not neccessary - I can order a new one when it's broken. But also I have some brand new spare SD cards in stock.


    Also I'd prefer a clean install of OMV4 over an sys-upgrade. Just to remove all the stuff I tried out before and restart with a clean device, especially since I'd like to upgrade OMV as well as the host system ;)

    Stuuuuuuuupid me... Just had a look at my Banana Pi...and it is an Banana Pi M1 - which is quite supported by ARMbian :)
    Glad I don't have to buy new hardware, as I'm still satisfied with it's ressources.


    But it's still running Jessie. Have to upgrade these days. Would you suggest me using OMV4 on Stretch or OMV5 on Buster?
    Is OMV5 still stable enough to run an SMB-share on it (just sharing one single folder...) ?


    You mentioned the sunxi-patch for the SATA bottleneck. Comparing to my USB3 drive in percentage how would en S-ATA drive speed read/write up? Do you guess it's more or less than 50%? If it's less I won't spend time on replacing the USB drive for an S-ATA drive (which probably won't run on my next hardware - USB for sure will be driven by any board).
    And will this patch be included in the OMV5 release, soon?


    And is there any command I could check which chipset is used by the WD Elements drive?
    lsusb just tells me there's an WD device :D


    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 1058:25a1 Western Digital Technologies, Inc.

    I'm running a 4TB WD Elements drive. But it's possible to buy a new one when I upgrade so I can eliminate 3 old backup drives and use this 4tb drive instead ;)


    In general I'd prefer x86 as itwould run most linux derivates and I wouldn't have to worry so much about ending support as on my Banana Pi right now.
    But more important would be the power consumption as it's an 24/7 system.


    The Atomic Pi sounds quite nice (especially what you get for the price!) - but I don't have the time nor the knowledge to struggle with USB3 issues...
    A PSU would be no big deal for me (I'm into electronics... designing own PCBs, so I know what to do).
    Also it's powerrating is quite high in comparison to my Banana Pi.


    If the A20 runs faster using S-ATA right now do you think ARMbian would admit support, again?
    Haven't been looking for other images for a while, as I experienced best performance using ARMbian.
    If there'llbe a newer image, I could imaging using my hardware some more years :)


    Wow, I've just seen my NanoPi Neo still gets ARMbian support (but in fact of 256MB RAM only that's a tough downgrade :D). I'll have a look if there's a replacement for the memory chip ;)

    Hey fellows,


    have been running ARMbian on my Banana Pi M2 since years using OMV.
    As ARMbian stopped supporting my Banana Pi M2 I'm looking for a new and cheap plattform.


    Touch USB and network on my BPi haven't been the fastest it was still fast enough for all tasks I had.
    I don't need a speed monster...just a replacement that'll be supported for another 3-5 years.


    I'm on budget, so less than $50 would be nice.
    And it should be a powersaving device ;)


    //edit: I've been running a 4TB usb disc on my BPi. Did external backups manually.
