LOL! I never cry when I crash a system! I ALWAYS have an SSD backup to swap in!
Thanks for BOTH replies. I can’t get into ROOT directory or even HOME directories at present the way I would from a simple linux terminal on the RockNAS keyboard or thru SSH… I’m still working on that and other things that I will (brag?) talk about later.
Adding a file manager as a Rockon might be the way to go and I will tell you exactly the reason why now!
In my setup, I have several TBs of data, (mostly audio/video/Dashcam files) that I need to work on and want the data/changes backed up as work is done. For that, the front end of my setup has a RAID-0 component to serve my workstation (Ryzen 9 5950X being built at same time) over a 10Gb fiber network.
I have so many files that a 4TB mirror is 95% filed and another 1.8TB is used on a second 4TB mirror.
So, setup at present is two 4TB RAID-1 setups that will feed into and out of a working RAID-10 setup that can keep up with the LAN speed…
I need a file manager to move working files into and out of the RAID-10 setup into either of the two 4TB Raid-1 setups because it will be a slow process. I need this so the moving process is on the local machine and not across the network because I will be moving terabytes at times…
I have two 1TB m.2 drives on the workstation motherboard for fast working storage and SSD for boot and Local 4TB drive for a bit more storage.
To tell you the truth, I am about to setup a test system and install openSUSE Leap 15.3 and see if it works easier by itself just because there is no local file manager on RockStor. I am totally sold on Btrfs though… everything about it seems better than any other storage file system I have messed with including ZFS.
And the bottom line on the other comments is:
If you make me have to research and learn BASH commands or other container widget things, then it isn’t push-button friendly and not suited for Joe Amature use… BUT YOU ARE SO CLOSE!!!
RockStor is so super close to being a push-button solution for the masses that it isn’t funny!
Someone added rockons for Plex and other media server types etc., why not a local share level file manager??? If it had a share level file manager, I would be happy and done! All I want to do is copy/paste from some shared directory to another like Windows Explorer could do, but in the local machine.
So close to a perfect NAS is RockStor… wouldn’t other folks like to copy another employee’s share directory files into their share directory the fastest way? Call admin, admin invokes GUI and selects File Manager and it’s done!!!
