[Nextcloudpi] Only 647.6 MB available despite using nc-automount

Nextcloud version : 12.0.2
Operating system and version : Raspian 9
Apache or nginx version : Apache 2.4.25
PHP version : 7.0
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error?: Yes

The issue you are facing:
I’ve used nc-automount to mount a 4TB hdd but when I log I each of the 3 users only have 647 MB available. Have I done something wrong?

waiting for @nachoparker to join in here…

but as a first read/hint --> [Solved] Nextcloudpi - Format HDD 3Tb - could that be a part of the problem as well?

To add some info the hdd was formatted to Ext4 on my laptop (Ubuntu).

have you put stuff there?

output of

df -h

I haven’t flung too much at it just a couple of test photos and a pdf.

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ df -h

/dev/sda is mounted. Have you also used nc-datadir to move the datadir to the HDD?

output of ls -l /media

I’m sure I did

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ls -l /media
total 8
drwx------ 3 pi pi 4096 Sep 22 21:15 b2db1d72-06d7-4d4e-a159-f87f9a199506
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Sep 22 21:28 USBdrive

Have you updated from an old image? because /media/USBdrive should be a link. If you don’t have stuff that you don’t want to lose, I suggest you clean up that directory and reboot.

First, run nc-init from the TUI or ncp-web to start from a clean NC configuration.

Then,

sudo mv /media/USBdrive /media/USBdrive.moved
sudo reboot

After reboot, /media/USBdrive should be a link

ls -l /media

Then, you can do nc-datadir to move the datadir and all the rest.

Followed and rebooted. Is this looking right?

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ls -l /media
total 8
drwx------ 3 pi pi 4096 Sep 22 21:15 b2db1d72-06d7-4d4e-a159-f87f9a199506
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Sep 22 21:28 USBdrive.moved

no, there’s no link. Can you try again after activating nc-automount again?

also, after that, what’s the output of

systemctl status nc-automount
systemctl status nc-automount-links

Done

Something happened to the last lines, it’s not complete. You might want to go full screen before running the command

Let’s try that again then

still nothing. Let’s try to see if the link is created

sudo /usr/local/etc/nc-automount-links
ls -l /media

I really appreciate your time and help here!

no problem,

ok that worked… I wonder why it doesn’t work when you reboot :S

if you reboot now, does the link in /media/USBdrive persist?

edit: two things that I have noticed is that the drive doesn’t have a label, and that it is not ‘properly’ formatted, because there is no partition table ( everything is under /dev/sda, and there is no /dev/sda1). That shouldn’t affect but I am curious to see if that has an influence.

A reboot has removed the link!
I did original format on the pi with nc-format-USB but that was only giving me 2TB to use.

yes, that has been reported recently. We are fixing it.

Still it shouldn’t fail. I wish we could see the output.

Try this, after reboot

systemctl status nc-automount-links > /tmp/templog.txt
cat /tmp/templog.txt
