OK, I figured it out - you cannot resize a folder if you only have one folder.....
I created two new small folders in addition to my original folder.
They were each big enough to hold all the data I was storing.
I then resized my original 5TB folder to a very small size 50GB (big enough to house the files I am hosting).
This worked. I then removed the original folder ( siac host folder remove <path> ).
I then removed one of the two new folders and all the stored data ended up in the remaining new 50GB folder.
I likely could have done this with just one new folder.
Happy now I can reuse the 5TB on my NAS :-)
I want to host my website. Which hosting site will be better for my https://hpsupports.co/hp-support-assistant/ website? I can pay for that but the most important thing for me is the security provided by the hosting site. So please suggest me some of hosting website.
@amd1361 - the contracting is nothing that you can influence... You can offer all the space you have and set your price. The renters will take out contracts based on your hosts scoring, all automated. Renters might /migt not then use the contracted space and you will get paied when your contracts end sucessfully.
do NOT expect any noteworthy income at this point in time - hosting until there is a real demand is basically something you do for free, due to the low demand.
To get contracts you should have a high score for your host. The link above describes how the network is scoring each host. If you host does not make it to the 30% best, then I don't think you will get contracts and then your space will not be rented out. EG my own host, siahost.craftx.biz:9982, has a very high score, but I'm hosting litterally for free :-)
I have more error entries in my log file than "normal" entries, yet it appears to be working just fine. I would only be concerned if suddenly there's a different pattern of error messages, which could indicate something broke at your end
