Connecting a USB drive on Proxmox

By | January 31, 2016

You have a USB drive with files copied from a windows server / pc and you want to copy them onto a proxmox server –

First install ntfs-3g by running the command apt-get ntfs-3g

mkdir /usbdrive

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /usbdrive

use rsync to copy the data across – rsync -a /usbdrive /todestinationpath
