    Can't Find Drive Mount Point?

    I'm following this video above to connect my Raspberry Pi to my ExtHDD. In the video, he explains that we'll need the drive mount point to give it permissions to be accessed in Nextcloud. He can see the "mount point" on the OMV control panel > File Systems (1st attached photo) But I cannot (2nd attached photo). I'm sure the mount point for my ExtHDD is /srv/dev-by-label-VIP, but nothing works when I put that path into Nextcloud's external drive app. Is there a terminal command I can use to see exactly where the actual mount point is? I've searched all over forums and can't seem to find how I can find it. I've mounted the drive, but the mount point isn't displayed for me on the OMV control panel. I ANSWERED MY OWN QUESTION SMH: If the mount point column doesn't show for you, click the "mounted" bar and select "columns". From there, you can select to show the "mount point" column Sometimes I surprise myself with how I can ask a question but immediately get the answer by simply looking around
  2. None of the software solutions I'm looking for work properly, so I'm hoping you guys can help me with something. I planned to use the disk I used to open an OpenMediaVault server to also hold the content on the open space, but obviously within Windows it's not mountable. I had the idea of dual booting Win10/Peppermint 10 or Ubuntu, but for some reason I've not been able to do so without the installer freezing. So, the last thing I thought to do is find a way to mount an Ext3 formatted disk within windows to make the content upload a bit more practical, as I'll need to have updates put up often. Does anyone have any ideas that'll work? Thanks so much
  3. Wow! I guess I didn't look too far outside of where they host if for you I'll have to reinstall that plugin and give it another shot, thanks so much for clarifying! Cheers mate
  4. Nextcloud was what I looked into for a little bit, but it seems like they have a cap on storage space available for use with them. Also, I plan on branching out on my Discord server, and the 50 member limit is literally limiting. Not to mention the prices are outrageous lol I was also wondering if I could just host the content straight from the 6TB external hard drive I have, instead of having it on a company's radar. I don't get the point of "shared folders" if it can't be used for remote access
  5. Long preface short, I wanted to see if I could use my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ to host content for members on my Discord server. I wasn't sure about how it'd work until I found out about OpenMediaVault. I've had the Pi sitting around and wanted to see if I could use that in place of a dedicated server (I'll only have 40+/- members accessing content on the "hopeful" media host). I have the Pi configured, I know basics on how to use OpenMediaVault and how to use the terminal to make updates and change settings and such: I just want to know if this was all in vain if I can't share access to members on my server, but whom of which are outside of my home network. Does anyone know of a plugin I could install or a process I could follow to configure my content host server to let Discord members only view shared folders? I'm extremely new to this and I'm banking on this working; I've tried using Mega.nz but when members share links around, they along with my Mega accounts seem to always get disabled, even though we're not sharing anything NSFW or inappropriate. Trolls ruin good things, so a self-hosted "cloud" server is what I wanted to try out. Thanks! P.s. I haven't began on configuring security measures, so guidance and forum posts that might help me will also be greatly appreciated. Right now, the host server is not live anymore because of this ~

    Archival HDD - Long Term Storage Suggestion?

    I've considered using a RAID array for the active archives then cloning that to other various drives that would be placed off site. Luckily, speed isn't a huge deal to me with something like an archive drive or array

    Archival HDD - Long Term Storage Suggestion?

    That's an awesome idea; not sure why I didn't think of that before! Many thanks!
  8. It's been a while since I last been on here, but I'm glad to be back! I've saved ALL phone/laptop/PC data that I've accumulated over the past 9 years or so, going from various hard drives to cloud services and such along the way. I'm at about 659GB of total data in the cluster of folders and files, and I'm wondering if there's a better option to hold data in a strictly archival setting. I won't be connecting the device unless a backup is being made or a transfer or new files to be added. Are there safe and reliable hard drive versions that won't die on me and lose all my data? I'm getting kind of tired having devices die on me, and I can't risk losing it on a cloud service if I miss a payment. The price of the HDD can range anywhere: I don't care, I just need my data to be safe. This data means a lot to me, but that goes without saying. I'd appreciate any guidance on this!

    RAM Overload: Leads to broken drivers/Graphics Card??

    .... If anyone ever has a problem like this, just go to the Windows display setting and change the resolution.... Mine was completely wrong after the Windows update..... Nothing about RAM had anything to do with it.... Just solved my own problem. I hope this helps someone out

    RAM Overload: Leads to broken drivers/Graphics Card??

    It's probably my display..... I'm on my laptop right now, and I can see everything normally, as if I just took screenshots of a perfectly normal PC. F*** When I ran the admin memory diagnostic tool, the display looks normal too. I really wish I knew what was actually going on.
  11. Today, I hooked up my main PC after having it on a shelf for about a month back up on my desk. Of course, the first thing I did once I got back into Windows was to immediately check for udpates... And there were a LOT of them. Didn't take too long to download and install them, but in the middle of the cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1706, I had a prompt pop up (first image). I then tried to close down the Chrome tabs and remote server software that I had begun working on before to free the RAM of the strain I was apparently putting it through. I have 16GB of Corsair DDR4 LPX 3000MHz RAM installed in my main system now. Before I could successfully close the programs, the system locked up (mind you, the updates were still downloading), and the system immediately shut down. There was no blue screen, further error messages or anything before the shut down. My first thought was that it shut down because the RAM had overloaded and needed to dump the contents because I understand the volitional nature of them. As soon as I tried to boot up the system again after a couple minutes of waiting, the system POSTed and went to the login screen, only to look completely out of wack! This startled me, but I turned and begun troubleshooting the display issue to the best of my knowledge. Uninstalling and reinstalling graphics drivers, powering down the system completely, completing a full disk image backup that I did before I put the system away, checking to see if the Windows updates installed correctly at all (they did): Everything I did didn't revert the display to a normal look. The images I attached below are just a couple of examples of what I'm looking at right now. I'm not entirely sure if the RAM is to blame, but I have my doubts. My display is attached to my GTX 1070 via HDMI, and the problem persists even after switching the original cable with 5 spares I have. The physical tower is behaving normally: 1. Fast/normal boot time into Windows 2. Normal thermals of CPU, graphics card, rest of internals 3. Normal ambient noise from chassis 4. RGB is still kicking 5. All components including RAM is being recognized and seems active and healthy This weird behavior happened immediately after the low-memory warning appeared and the system crashed. I'm at a loss for words. I have game server work to do before the next wipe (Rust lol), but I can't do what I need to do while my display is looking cancerous. Does anyone happen to know what I could try to further figure out this issue? Has anyone ever seen this before? ANY HELP would be a gigantic help!!!!! If there's any additional information I can provide to create a better picture of the situation for you guys, I'll be more than happy to provide it! Thanks!!! P.s. I'm going to be so mad if the screenshots I attached to the post look normal to everyone else except me ~

    What's the "ideal" Cable Modem + Wireless Router Piece?

    Good stuff, I appreciate the guidance and information! As I said before, money isn't a concern of mine when it comes to the sort of router I'm trying to get for the old man. A DOCSIS 3.1 modem with a separate router is what I'll go with in that case. Dount471 and kirashi mentioned Netgear devices, and I've already found pretty solid options that are both current-gen and decently priced with his brand. Of course, the search isn't finished, and I'll also consider other manufacturers as well. Thanks a lot for the preface I needed to start seriously looking at the different options (again, I'm a novice when it comes to networking tech). Awesome stuff!
  13. Hello Nerds and Professionals alike! Long story short: This is what my Dad is currently strolling through the wonderful and free internet with... https://www.amazon.com/Motorola-SB5101u-Surfboard-Cable-Modem/dp/B00NOF34JM/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1511500759&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=motorola+surfboard+sb5101u&psc=1 This is the cable modem he's been using for nearly 10 years, and it's served him well up until about a year ago. Random cut outs and less-than desired performance moved him to ask me for the best upgrade he could go with. He wants a device that would be both a cable modem and a wireless router that'll act as a whisperer for his main network for the office he has in the basement. All-in-one device that can do it all, basically put. Anything below $300 though please ~ lol He doesn't know that I'm going to be the one buying it for him though. Money is tight at the moment for him, but I've been saving for a house-wide overhaul of all of his tech, from the desktops, network, furniture, etc. This is a vital piece of the puzzle that I do need help with. I'm a hardware guy personally, so network-related things are sort of a 5th language to me. What do you guys think I should get my Dad to bring the family gaming/office space to the modern era? I've only got one idea so far that could work, linked below. Any other ideas are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance https://www.amazon.com/Motorola-MG7550-Gigabit-Certified-Spectrum/dp/B01JGT2JI6/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1511500866&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=netgear+ac1900+cable+modem&psc=1
  14. Hello Just looking for a good and solid clan to join on either US or EU servers on Rust: Preferably after a fresh wipe. No, I'm not a dirty RP n00b, I'm just bored with surviving solo on random servers and want to contribute to something bigger. I'm a natural gatherer, has extensive knowledge of where common/uncommon resources are found, have nearly 65 hours of solo experience (not that much, but still working on it lol) and I own and operate an EU server we can all start fresh on if anyone's interested. Bottom line: I got bored with rust and want to help with building, smelting, gathering and strengthening a clan's base and inventory. Any takers? Thanks, A1C_Meh P.s. Where can I find a STONE NODE?!!!
