Recycle bin on RN104

 

Please give me an easy answer.... and please only answer if you know (no guesses).

 

is there a tick box to enable the recycle bin on the RN104?

 

My ReadNas NV+ V2 has a tick box to enable the recycle bin but I cannot find it in the RN104 menu. Help....

 

Thanks,

 

Robert....

Hi BrianL,

Unable to follow your thread. Will not accept my login.

Nor will it send me a password update.

Must be a cut-and-paste error on Brian's part.

 

You could look here: https://community.netgear.com/t5/Using-your-ReadyNAS/Can-Recycle-Bin-be-enabled-for-CIFS-and-OS-6-1-...

 

and perhaps read through the posts after the highlighted thread as well.  The process will require some knowledge of linux.

 

 

Though I find Snapshots to be a good alternative.  With snapshots enabled, you can roll-back to older versions of the share, and if you right-click from windows on a file you can see/access previous versions.  If you right-click on the folder and access previous versions, you can select deleted files and restore them. It's not exactly the same as the recycle bin, but it is similar.

Hi neonshades,

 

Sorry, I made a mistake with the link I used in my previous post (I already updated it). Anyway, StephenB already gave an introduction on how Snapshots work on the new OS 6 systems. Just let us know if you have further questions.

Hi BrianL,

Thanks for the help but snapshot is not what I needed. Guess the simple answer is no, the recycle bin tick box has been removed from the RN104 operating system.

Shame really.

Regards,

Robert....

Hi neonshades,

 

I apologize if the said feature you are looking for is unavailable on the new OS 6 system. If you want this feature to be added again, I suggest that you post another thread on this board.

From the original post of JMehring 20 November 2013

putty and ssh required

 

1) create file addons.conf as below

 

\etc\frontview\samba\addons\addons.conf

 

I think you have to create the addons directory as well.

 

2) then edit addons.conf, I use vi, to include the shares that you wish to have Recycle Bin activated for (include the square brackets)

 

[name of your share 1]
vfs objects = recycle
recycle:repository = Recycle Bin
recycle:keeptree = yes
recycle:versions = no

 

[name of your share 2]
vfs objects = recycle
recycle:repository = Recycle Bin
recycle:keeptree = yes
recycle:versions = no

 

3) Save file. As you can see you can choose the name of the "bin" . leave putty window  open

 

4) to "activate"  go to frontview interface on the nas and the share window

 

 toggle a property of the share for example ftp on to off.  this reloads the config file to include addons.conf

 

5)then in putty window type:

testparm

 

this should list your shares and show the recycle:parameters for the shares defined

 

6) close putty

 

I did this and I was a complete linux/ssh novice.

 

If you  install/update firrmware on the nas check that this file exists, factory reset obviously wipes this file

 

It works for usb attached drives etc just use the drive name ie USB_HDD_1 etc

 

for very large >5Tb usb drives there is  also a bit of a fidddle required on some NAS' due to the adding of the addons.conf file to the "main config file. If it does not load then post and I can give pointers on how to correct.
