Expand Hansson Nextcloud from 40GB to 1TB?

I want to expand my storage as I’m running out (only me using this at home).
Found a video but thats for Virtualbox. I am running VMware player.

Could someone give me a helping hand?
Is there a Hansson fee I have to pay to be able to expand my storage?

It looks like I have understood it correctly that I have to pay for an expand. That’s a bummer. I’m using nextcloud for my iphone and nothing more…

Is it possible to move data from the 40gb VM to a clean install, like (Official) Nextcloud VM ?

You don’t have to pay.

You just have to know how to do it, and your options are basically; looking online for answers, or pay for a service and get it done by someone else.

Thanks enoch85; is this in the correct direction of how to do it?

Read that expanding is not the way, but adding a new drive to the zfs pool is.


I just read this thread and was careful to write
zpool add ncdata /dev/my drive and not
zpool add ncdata my drive

After looking at df -Th it looks like my ncdata got another 210 GB of space :slight_smile:
Running update.sh now.
Hopefully this was all that was needed, thanks guys and thank you @Prati_Prati for your thread!

Actually, I prefer to expand, but it has some prerequisites to it.

Glad you got it sorted anyway! :+1:t3:

Please elaborate :slight_smile:

Well, I prefer to maintain 1 disk for data instead of 2 or several. :slight_smile:

You get a real great reliable and maintained VM.

Why not honoring this by paying such 20 bucks for the maintainer?

It’s worth every penny and you will be happy for years.

Yes that I can understand. But I was thinking about the procedure on how to expand that one drive.
Yes I totally understand you can pay them and support the project. Will think about doing that.
