    I don't really understand what is being asked here. I didn't see any root level access required for running the node here: https://github.com/storj/docs/blob/master/Explorer-Release-Setup-Instructions.md If you are referring to just running docker commands in general as a non-root user (say on a linux box), this probably means your user isn't in the `docker` user group or whatever that is required to run docker w/o `sudo` (see this: https://docs.docker.com/install/linux/linux-postinstall/) Can you elaborate?

    Hey  shodan21, you do not have to run your V3 Storage node as a root user, the link he posted above about managing docker as a non-root user is a great resource to setup your docker installation so that your storage node can be run without root user.
