I’ve recently setup a Proxmox machine and I’m currently using OpenMediaVault to manage the drives and shares.
However… there is something I didn’t take into account. I have a 2Tb drive that is used for downloads and other temp storage. On this drive are a couple of folders for different purposes, but sometimes I need to move something from one folder to another on the same drive.
Doing this over the network means that the drive is reading the data, data goes over the network, and then the drive is writing the data again instead of just changing the file path.
The dream here would be to browse to a URL, then open up Folder A on the left, then open Folder B on the right, then select what I want to move and click a button.
I did some googling and it seems there is no file explorer/Manager for OVMs web interface which would have been the dream… unless anyone here has some ideas?
But, it looks like I may have to switch to something else that comes with or is easy to add a file manger to. Any suggestions?
NOTE: I am passing the drives straight to OMV. They are not part of a pool in proxmox. The idea here was that if something were to go wrong or I wanted to move away from OMV, the drives can just be straight switched. They are just dump storage drives… no VM or OS installs on them at all.
