Little known fact, if you push a runner bean seed up your nose the moisture will cause it to germinate, and expand.You wont get any beans though just  two black eyes. :o

Home file server - cloud - RaspberryPi?

Previous topic - Next topic


My old trusty NAS server (eTrayZ) disc has died and the nas is about 10 years old so there is probably better things out there?

Basically I would like to auto backup a couple of directories on my win7 PC, maybe replicate dropbox from Laptop (Win7) and mobile (Android).

I have a couple of usb hard drives and a RaspberryPi B+ kicking about which would be nice to use?

So can anyone recommend any software (OS + applications) that might do the job?

I try :-)


Your starter for 10

I have a Rasberry pie doing nothing here and a pile of disks that need gainful employment, I might give it a go.  :hmm:

If you didn't manage to get your data from that old NAS box, Linux will be able to read those partitions so you can get your stuff back.

Cheers. There do seem to be quite a few guides out there. I am going to have a play this afternoon and see what I can get working!
As for old data, it's a bit weird. The internal disc I can't access, but the externally connected usb drive I have access to. I also can't access the web interface. So some bits of it work others not. I will pull the HD and see if the Rpi can read it.

Cheers. I will let you know how I get on.
I try :-)


So after looking at lots of guides and realising that my old RPi were older than I thought (Rpi B with 900mhz and 512Mb), I decided to try dietpi and nextcloud.
Dietpi is a cut down distro that also has easy optimised software that just requires a click to instal. So installed dietpi on 4Gb SD card and that went fine. Booted rpi and the installation went fine. Then you eventually get a menu to install optimised software, I selected NextCloud (OpenCould available) and that too went fine, rebooted and tried to login. No NextCloud was having none of it, eventually found the default username and password on an install via dietpi was not defaults but admin and dietpi. I would never guessed that!!
So now logged in via ri ip address /nextcloud/  and logged in correctly. All fine, created additional user account and installed win7 client. All works fine.
Only problem is that it is painfully slow!!! So maybe going to have to rethink this one.....
I try :-)


So I thought I would do a bit more in depth fault finding on my eTrayZ nas. I found I could ssh into it  ~~
So did a bit of checking and it seemed that a xsf partition was a bit iffy. So I tried xsf_repair with -L switch and after about 30mins it found an error and deleted it!!
Rebooted and it's working again. Well mostly, some of the extra apps like MediaTomb and MySQl don't seem to be working but I don't really use them anymore.

So looks like eTrayZ is alive again. So I will make 100% sure I have an alternative backup and it's all upto date in case it dies again.

I try :-)
