    Partition/formatting/labeling issues with new external HD

    Thanks, Yota. As it turns out, the disk was already using GPT format, and fdisk output was just the consequence of fdisk not understanding that format. I then used MiniTool Partition wizard to at least remove the Microsoft partition, but for some reason, Asuswrt didn't want to mount it anymore...

    Partition/formatting/labeling issues with new external HD

    Hi everyone, I recently bought a 8TB to replace my 4TB backup/media drive which is attached to my RT-AC56U router running Asuswrt-Merlin. Disk was probably formatted NTFS out of the box, so (as recommended by many) I SSHed to my router and formatted it to ext4 (using mke2fs -t ext4)...

    384 upgrade reconfiguration help

    Quick question: Since it is recommended to do a factory reset when upgrading from version 380 to 384 - is there a way to get some kind of "diff" between the default configuration of version 380 and the current settings? Because of course it isn't difficult to re-add a couple of custom...

    Two suggestions for OpenVPN Client Settings

    Hi and thanks for all the hard work you are putting into this firmware! I am very happy with the strict settings that are possible with the OpenVPN clients to make sure connections are protected at all times and the VPN tunnel doesn't just die in silence. Two ideas for improvement, though: (1)...

    Padavan's Custom Firmware

    Run the Script After Connected/Disconnected to VPN Server I noticed that the newest firmware version allows you to run a script if the VPN client disconnects from the the server (which is fantastic, I guess). Is anyone already making good use of this, and can someone possibly give instructions...

    HD issues

    Just as an update - I "fixed" the HD using fsck, but after un- and remounting the drive, the problems returned. Fsck again, problem returns (repeat). The N56U still has no problem with the drive, and Paragon ExtFS works fine as well (apart from the general problems this software has). So at...

    HD issues

    I am aware of that problem, but I am afraid mine is a different one. Ironically, I HAD the problem you mentioned about a year ago: http://forums.smallnetbuilder.com/showthread.php?t=9390 So in the aftermath, I decided to go with a native linux format (ext4), even though something that's...
