[SOLVED] Nextbox backup fail to mount/see storage device

hi i am trying to make a backup of my nextbox
so far i am unable to see the harddisk i have attached to the nextbox

i have tried following the documentation guide

i have formatted the drive to EXT4
the external drive has external power
it does not show up in storage management
so i am unable to mount the harddisk

any suggestions on what to try next what to do?

i have tried rebooting the nextbox

Hey @christian_olsen,

  • did you check the hard-drive on another machine, does it mount properly
  • did you create a partition and then format this partition as ext4, it might not work if you format the drive as ext4 without a proper partition


SOLVED have to make sure that you actually create a partition on the drive

thanks for your help
