Re: Lost contact with Bubba

are you sure there is anything wrong with it? is the web interface working?

Re: Lost contact with Bubba

cd /home/storage/extern/<usb stick>

when you get to /home/storage/extern you have to figure out which mount point is your usb drive and then cd to that.

Re: system backup tutorial review
