DietPie boot moving to HHD

Unread post by Everything_sys » Sun Jun 09, 2019 11:23 pm

Hi everyone, I'm very green to all things Linux so I apologize in advance if my question sunds stupid.

1. I'm thinking to set up some type of a home cloud to house all my and my wife's pictures and vedios in one loction so I picked up HC2 and WD 4TB drive.

2. After my research I decided to install DietPie and run either Samba or ProFTP.

3. The Question: is to possible or necessary to move the boot file from SD to HDD? I saw that someone mentioned that SD cards ware out fast.?

4. Is there another way to set up my share using anything else? Any input is appreciated . Thank you!

If you want to learn, stick to some clean Debian / Ubuntu OS.

If you want to use this hardware, get something like this https://sourceforge.net/projects/openme ... Computers/

OMV could be fine to build a storage server.

Or, Ubuntu must be okay too.

You can move your Linux(Dietpi) root file system to HDD/SSD.

I've just found a video tutorial for DietPi and HC1/HC2 users who want to move the rootfs to an HDD.
