Open Media Vault:
openmediavault is web interface network attached storage (NAS) solution based on Debian Linux. It contains services like SSH, (S)FTP, SMB/CIFS, DAAP media server, RSync, BitTorrent client and many more. Thanks to the modular design of the framework it can be enhanced via plugins.

OMV has known issues and is not 100% compatibile with DietPi, or, user config changes (eg: fstab). If you use this software, it is recommended to install only on a fresh DietPi installation, and, use OMV features only.
For example, use of dietpi-drive_manager to format a drive (or a command line manual format, with mount entry added to /etc/fstab), then using OMV to setup shares, will cause known issues:
