Hello,

 

I have 6 disks of 12 tb on my server . Each one have  2 folders (Movie + Music) . So wrongly i create 6 shares of movie ( movie 1 , movie 2 , movie 3 ... movie 6) and 6 shares of music( music 1 , music 2... music 6 ) .

I want to create only one share for movies and one for music, and assign all 6 disks to this 2 shares. 

I don´t want to erase/format the disks to do it...  So i can´t eliminate the 12 shares( music+movies ) without format all the 6 disks??! 

Which is the easy way ? Buy a new disk , and start from here, use this new one to create copys and create one single share for music and other for movies?

If the shares have data you can just rename the folders, if they are empty delete those shares.

How ? If i want to have only one share for movies , and now i have 6 shares for movies, one per disk... They are not empty... 

 

My goal is one share for movies with all disks included on it , without deleting the content of 6 disks to perform it...

On the console rename the existing shares, for example:

 

mv "/mnt/disk1/movies 1" /mnt/disk1/movies
mv "/mnt/disk2/movies 2" /mnt/disk2/movies

 

and so on, also note that Linux is case sensitive.

Thank you so much . When i arrive home , i will try it.

 

When i finish all, i can delete the older shares?  (music 1, music 2... movies 1, movies 2...)

 

The quotation marks are to write on the command?

You don't delete anything the old shares are just renamed.

Quotations are need for the source if there a space in the name like you posted, i.e., movies 1, if it's movies1 no quotations are needed, but they won't hurt anyway.

After the folders are renamed there will be new shares, movies and music, they will have the default settings, so you need to check the settings, likely split level, allocation and mostly minimum free space.
