(resolved) ODROID-XU4 Cloudshell v2 - custom USB mount


By the way, excellent work on DietPi! This is the best stripped down linux server image I’ve ever found!

I Have a little problem with Cloudshell not displaying the USB Storage information. I think the problem is that I mounted my drive as the /home/ folder, originally the drive was mounted in /mnt/usb_1/ in the /etc/fstab file.

Is there is a way of configuring the Cloudshell script to “look” in different folder?

In case it may help here is my fstab configuration :

#Internal Drives---------------------------------------------------
/dev/mmcblk0p2  /            ext4      defaults,errors=remount-ro,noatime                      0       1
/dev/mmcblk0p1  /boot        vfat      defaults,rw,owner,flush,umask=000                       0       2
tmpfs           /tmp         tmpfs     noatime,nodev,nosuid,mode=1777                          0       0
#/var/log DietPi Ramlog Disabled
tmpfs           /DietPi      tmpfs     defaults,size=10m,noatime,nodev,nosuid,mode=1777        0       0

#External Drives---------------------------------------------------
# - Try and use only ext4 for USB drives
# - Faster performance than NTFS, espically on Pi
/dev/sda1       /home           ext4    defaults,noatime,nobootwait     0       2
#/dev/sda1      /mnt/usb_1      ntfs-3g defaults,nobootwait             0       0

Also, I tried to mount the drive using the HDD UUID but Cloudshell still do not show USB Storage usage


Hi AarDVark,

Yes, the location can be changed. Currently, you will need to modify the dietpi-cloudshell script. I will add this option to the settings file at a later date.

Use /home as the USB drive in dietpi-cloudshell:

sed -i "/STORAGE_USB_PATH=/c\STORAGE_USB_PATH='/home'" /DietPi/dietpi/dietpi-cloudshell
killall dietpi-cloudshell
/DietPi/dietpi/dietpi-cloudshell 0 &> /dev/tty0 &

Great to hear! Be sure to spread the word :slight_smile:

It works, Thanks! :wink:
