Ok, I am loving what I am reading and seeing about Rockstor and I am almost ready to forge full steam. I am currently running FreeNAS with about 800GB of media data. I know very little of Linux and command line stuff. So with that information I have some questions about getting my data into Rockstor.
I know FreeNAS uses zfs and Rockstor uses btrfs but I know very little about the filesystems. I have a 1TB external USB drive to use to move the data. How can I copy the FreeNAS data to the external drive and then copy it to Rockstor? I have read about rsync but never used it. Is that the way to go?
I do have a FreeNAS cifs share setup and could format the external drive to NTFS then copy the data that way but I think that way could take a really long time. Is it even possible to copy data into Rockstor from an NTFS drive?
I am currently battling the installer haha. I am using a brand new USB drive and selected auto partitioning but when it is done installing and I go to the web gui I get “'root filesystem is not BTRFS. During Rockstor installation, you
must select BTRFS instead of LVM and other options for root filesystem”
