Hello fluttershy. Thanks for the assist on smtp and I hope I can help you with snapraid. Actually you do not need to worry about what is happening with SAMBA or any other applications. On my machine I have mounted all volumes to /media and I created a directory called RaidMain on each volume. I have everything in this directory that I want archived. If I have no need to save then it is found outside RaidMain.
I have created two parity disks and I have saved the content file in three locations. I then have eight drives to archive and they are identified as d1-d8. Here is my snapraid.conf file. Hope this helps.
Code: Select all
# They can be in the disks used for data, parity or boot,
# but each file must be in a different disk
# Format: "content FILE_PATH"
# Defines the data disks to use
# The order is relevant for parity, do not change it
# Format: "disk DISK_NAME DISK_MOUNT_POINT"
disk d1 /media/MediaLinks/RaidMain/
disk d2 /media/WD20EARX/RaidMain/
disk d3 /media/WL3000/RaidMain/
disk d4 /media/WD20EARX_2/RaidMain/
disk d5 /media/WD20EARX_3/RaidMain/
disk d6 /media/WD20EARX_4/RaidMain/
disk d7 /media/WL3000_2/RaidMain/
disk d8 /media/WL3000_3/RaidMain/
