Hi,
I just installed the "openpli-8.0-release-vuduo2-20210301_usb.zip" Image in one Vuo Duo 2 and at the end I found an unexpected and unpleasant BAD SURPRISE....: all the previous recorded files (movies, series, concerts, documentaries) inside the HDD were just GONNE!!....DISAPEARED!!... HOW CAN THIS BE POSSIBLE????
I have 2 vuo+ receivers for more than 10 years and this NEVER  happened before. You just don't know the damage that you caused me.
I will stop using OPenPli Images and I shall never recomend to other people.

Are you really sure that they are gone?
Is the harddisk mounted? Is it maybe mounted to /media/usb and not as you expect /media/hdd.

If it is an internal disk, please DONT DO ANYTHING until we've managed to debug this issue, this is happening a bit too much for my liking.

 

Can you work with the linux commandline?

Does it happen often? Haven’t read about it in the English section.

Can this fail somehow?

Maybe if bash is installed or whatever? Have no time to test at the moment.

I don't know what are you talking about. Is an internal Toshiba HDD formated in NTSF.

The HDD is still mounted and I could'nt find anything in either of the optins you refer. Anyway the amount of files recorded is too big for a usb device (+- 380Gbytes).

But thanks for the answer.

Can you login with telnet? Then we can guide you with that to type in and report back.

 

I see you mentioned the disk is formatted NTFS. May I ask why, as that is a very strange choice for an internal disk in a linux machine.

 

Mounting EXFAT and NTFS (fuse mounts) via udev has been fixed on december 2nd, so that should be present in the current 8.0 release.

Ok, tomorrow I will proceed as you say. About the format I will confirm if it was made by NTFS since I am not really sure. 

See you.

ok.

 

First, restart the box, and when it has restarted, login and type the command

dmesg

capture the output and copy it here.

 

Next, type in the following command to install fdisk:

opkg install util-linux-fdisk

when done, type in the command

fdisk -l

again, capture the output and post it here.

 

This is the first step, and allows us to see if the hardware is detecting the disk, what it does with that information, and how the box thinks the disk is partitioned and formatted.

 

When we know that, we can give you additional commands to test, and we can recreate your situation to test it ourselfs.

That shouldn't be, I've tested with a USB disk (both EXFAT and NTFS) for my fix back in december.

Hi WanWisard

 

ALLELUIA!!
Problem solved....
I move the hdd to another VUO DUO that I have with a previous image (7.3) and VOILÁ. All the files are still there. 
Thanks again for you help.
The question now is what version of image shall I put in the receiver to prevent
this to happen again in the future.?
 
Best regards

That still doesn't answer the question why it wasn't detected in the first place.

 

So while you have found a workaround, the problem isn't solved at all, chances are tht when you upgrade this box, you'll bump into the same problem.

I am not sure but I think he should install the mount manger from the feed (plugin,green key, system plugin , mount manager ) and check that if the hdd is properly mounted or not. 

there is no need to press red key to initialize the hdd . simply install the plugin mount mananger  and carefully check it .
