    Will do.

    I have ordered another RaspberryPi 4B and will do it in a more structured way with that one. Today was loan-pi and alot of trial and errors. I will document it down and post.

I use Stablebit Drivepool on Win10 systems with very satisfactory results but I have no experience of LVM on Linux.

    Can LVM be used in the pCP ecosystem with USB attached HDDs? Does anyone have any experience or tips on its implementation and use?

    Any help or pointers would be most welcome.

    Thanks in advance

    You can specify multiple library locations in LMS, so there shouldn't be any need for LVM.

    Yes I'm aware of the wonderfully easy way one can add extra storage to pCP. I simply wanted to not have to keep manually balancing what goes where on several HDDs. Many thank Claus for your reseach and help. I'm afraid I'm a bit "long in the tooth" to start getting in too deeply with Linux programming. I've made too many annoying blunders lately so I'll give LVM a miss and compensate by splashing out on a new, bigger HDD.

    Cheers

    This is not so easy. I got the Pi4B+ 2GB today. Flashed on pCP 6.0.0-b7. Chosed an USB 2 port connected to the Mutec MC3+ USB. Nothing. No communicatioon at all. I put in the output setting: iec958:CARD=M20,DEV=0 .

    I restarted both units several times. No cmmunication. Then I chosed a USB 3 port on the Pi4 and voilÓ. It works now.

    To sum it up. The output setting ( iec958:CARD=M20,DEV=0 ) is valid. But it still was a challange to get the communication to start. I have no patent solution but don't give up. I succeeded eventually, twice.

    For what it's worth/Jan

    pCP 6.0.0 with USB

    Hi,
    I recently bought a WD Red 10TB HDD which I use in a Raidsonic Icy Box enclosure. When mounting this USB HDD to pCP 6.0.0, the drive gets mounted as well as a 16MB "something else".

    Although all works very well, I am just wondering what this "something else" could be? The Icy Box enclosure?

    PS. I'm using a USB stick for the cache.

    Many thanks.

    Did you partitioned the drive when you got it (you should always do it with new drives, because you don't know what is installed)?
    Maybe it is the rest of the drive that can not used for the partition with the ntfs filesystem because it is too small for a block (it is only 16MB in size).

    Thanks.
    Yes, it is initiated, partitioned and formatted. Just one partition which uses the complete available space.

    Which partitionformat did you used? GPT or MBR? Maybe the other one is using the 16MB. :-)

    I just connected the drive to my PC and Disk Management shows this:

    Not sure where I can find any info regarding GPT or MBR?
