[solved] Can't add a local datasource (import existing data)

For first post, please answer the questions below!

Describe your issue in detail

Hi everyone,
I’m trying to add an existing shared folder to Pydio but i can’t (“Please make sure the parent folder is writable by the application”),
The error itself is self explanatory and the process of adding a datasource is well documented in Pydio Help , but I can’t get why am i receiving that error.
I’m trying to use - /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-efadb681-0523-4425-867e-7638c65a111f/Data/movies/pydiotest as datasource and as per my setup ,Pydio has writing right till /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-efadb681-0523-4425-867e-7638c65a111f/Data , so it should be ok

  - PUID=1000
  - PGID=100

user ID 1000 has R/W access to the Data folder mentioned above and other Services using the same user are able to R/W there .

What version of Cells are you using?


What is the server OS? Database name/version? Browser name or mobile device description (if issue appears client-side)?

Open Media Vault (7.x) is the OS,
Pydio has been installed using Docker/compose:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=100
- TZ=Etc/UTC
- EXTERNALURL=yourdomain.url
- SERVER_IP= #optional
- /Pydioconfig:/config
- /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-efadb681-0523-4425-867e-7638c65a111f/Data/movies
- /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-efadb681-0523-4425-867e-7638c65a111f/Data/series
- /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-efadb681-0523-4425-867e-7638c65a111f/Data/movies/pydiotest

What steps have you taken to resolve this issue already?

Going through the documentation,
Verifying access rights to folder again and again

Thank you


I fixed the problem, the point was that:

  • /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-efadb681-0523-4425-867e-7638c65a111f/Data/movies/pydiotest
  • /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-efadb681-0523-4425-867e-7638c65a111f/Data/movies/pydiotest:/hdd25

1/ was making the disk visible, but 2/ is needed to make it usable
The case can be closed
