    I have followed many different tutorials on setting up a private folder. Including this one from TechnoDadLife -

    When I try to log in to the folder I see the message in the image below.

    Is anyone kind enough to help me with this problem? I need the help, support and guidance of the community. I have been trying to figure this out for the last 6 months on my own with no success :(

    Any help and support would be greatly appreciated.


    Hi macom

    This is a fantastic idea, thank you for your help.

    My understanding of OMV is some what limited, but you have promoted me to have a further poke around in the OMV backend.

    I have located the user with read/write privileges on the folder I want to access.

    If I select 'User' (in the side bar) > select the username with the read/write privileges > edit - I can see a place to update the password (same as the image below).

    If I update the password there will I then be able to access the folder?

    Thank you for your help.


    I am in the process of setting up Open Media Vault.

    Question about sharing folders

    I plan to set up following folders

    • Document
    • Music
    • Movies
    • Video Project

    I want everyone on the network to be able to see and access Music and Movies folders

    Video Projects and Documents should only be visible and accessible to me.

    What is the correct set up process to get this to happen?

    Is it a case of adding users to OMV and then defining what folders they can see when the input their username and password?

    Thank you for your help.

    Edit - Additional Question below about folder structure.

    I don't think that I necessarily need to make folders only accessible to me.

    Should I have one main top level folder for example called 'Share' and then put all my sub folders listed above inside this? (I understand that if I do things this way, I can either have the whole 'Share' folder accessible either with or without a password)

    Or should I make each of the folders listed above a top level folder on the network?

    I am asking this as I will be streaming video and music across the network and want to get the most efficient streamline setup.

    I wonder do some clients perhaps require things to be structured in a certain way?

    Thank you.


    I am trying to set up Open Media Vault on RockPi64.

    I have done the following things.

    Downloaded Armbian and verified the MD5 code. It came back correct.

    Formated the SD card with SD Formater.

    Ran h2testw to write and verify the SD Card it came back with no errors.

    Formated the SD card again with SD Formater.

    Burned Armbian to the SD card using Etcher.

    Logged in to Armbian, updated the root password, and created a new user and password.

    Rebooted armbian.

    Ran sudo apt-get update, than ran sudo app-get upgrade.

    Rebooted armbian, and logged in to the new user account.

    Opened the terminal and ran

    wget -O -…Script/raw/master/install | sudo bash

    This gives me the following output, see below.

    The system seems to hang and I am unable to access the local IP of the device from the browser.

    I left the system running over night just to make sure it had a chance to download everything

    To sum up the problem and question,

    When I run wget -O -…Script/raw/master/install | sudo bash

    My system seems to hang and I can't get to the web interface using my systems local IP.

    I am looking for what I can do to over come and fix this.


    It's a while since I have last installed OMV.

    I wanted to check I am not missing anything obvious.

    I will be installing OMV on a Rock64 single board computer.

    Is my understanding of the installation method correct?

    1. Download and install Armbian buster

    2. At the armbian buster terminal run - wget -O -…Script/raw/master/install | sudo bash


    I know this seems like a daft questions but in the past I am sure there was an .ISO that you could download and there was no need to install Armbian buster first.

    No, a directory with several files is created by Clonezilla. Different things are stored in different files e.g. Master boot record, Partition table, the payload itself and so on.
    For a restore of that "image" you need the complete content of this folder. But don´t care about the files in this folder. If you want to restore a Clonezilla backup you are simply asked for the name of that folder.

    I would recommend you to run through the restoration process also, not only the backup process to be familiar if it should be necessary sometime.

    Thanks for the reply @cabrio_leo

    I read through you reply I wasn't clear if the files in the image are correct.

    Please can you clarify if the files in the image look correct.


    I agree with with what you are saying about going through the restore process, but I don't have a spare machine to do this one and don't want to risk the machine that is 'in production'.

    Would it be possible to set up a virtual machine of ubuntu and then run clonezilla to make the resotre.

    I could get the virtual machine (vm) working but wouldn't know how to get the vm to boot to clonezilla, if you could advise me on this that would be a great help.

    Thank you for your support :)


    I am hoping someone can help me understand what would be the reason or use case where some would want to install NextCloud on OpenMediaVault?

    What would be the advantages or benefits of doing this?

    Do NextCloud and OpenMediaVault not provide very similar functionality?

    This is a genuine questions and I hope I get some sensible replies and learn something new.

    Thanks in advance.
