I’m new in Rockstor and I like the simplicity. I’m planning to activate the stable updates but I’m missing one or two nice features.
My Rockstore NAS will be used by about 3-4 Windows users. These users will use their home shares intensively. Therefore for a Btrfs NAS-Device it would be great to gave the users the possibility to handle the first backup fence direct by them self (without an admin call).
I’m not sure, but I can’t find a GUI-function which where I can activate a snapshot or ‘Shadow Copy Services’ for each user home folder (e.g. inside
/home/alice, /home/bob, /home/jason). That means for me that Windows users can’t use ‘Shadow Copy Services’ inside their home shares. Snapshots and ‘Shadow Copy Services’ can only used within newly created shares .
To solve this behavior it would be nice to have child subvolumes for each user home folder.
With an additional global users home snapshot rule it would be possible to get a lot more safety.
