  1. It looks like the granularity for moving 'older' files is 1 day based on CTIME. I'd like to move files older than 1 hour based on CMIN. Am I not seeing a setting for this? If not, is there a work-around? (awesome plugin!)
  2. I currently do the same with a Synology for user storage that is versioned using BTRFS. It looks like you have the local backup covered. You then could have remote backup by taking drives offsite. I didn't outline every one of my goals, but one of my goals is to have fast versioned remote backup to the cloud. To get the versioning I could use a file-based backup application (of which I've used and tested many) or I'm thinking I could just use ZFS snapshots. Then just backup snapshots. I would also like to have the files verified by a hash check and I think ZFS would give me that. I hope all that makes sense.
  3. Thanks and good suggestion and my DS916+ supports it. While I like Synology in general, I'm not really a fan being vendor locked with their backup solution. I don't think I'll be buying Synology devices in the future. I'm still thinking I would prefer the robustness of ZFS as a backup server if what I outlined is sound.
  4. My home network is a Windows environment along with a Synology NAS. I want to be able to protect against ransomware so having incremental backups are important to me. I've been looking at various methods other unraid users are using but they all seem too complex for the purpose. I'm sure I'm not the first to consider this but I'm thinking of just using a 1U server to run FreeNAS so I can use daily ZFS snapshots and backup those snapshots locally and remotely. I can then backup important files from my Windows Server NAS, Synology NAS, and unraid all to the FreeNAS server and perform simple backups of FreeNAS. What are the holes in this strategy? p.s. I've also tried Synology backup methods but I found them really unreliable.
  5. Thanks. Not sure how I was missing it but the SAS drives show now.
  6. Great plugin! My SAS drives are not found in the scan. Does this support SAS drives?
  7. CacheCade basically allows you to use a few SSD drives as caching drives with the controller determining what to cache. I'm curious if anyone has tested LSI's CacheCade with unraid. I'm not sure if CacheCade even works with JBOD or if it requires an array. Anyone using it? Thanks.
  8. I restarted the emhttp process and the web interface is back up. killall emhttp nohup emhttp >/dev/null 2>&1 & I started the array but is still sits at "Starting..." but that may be because the cache drive is still mounting?
  9. Thanks. I actually tried loading it from another machine and the message is the same. I suppose I need to try some way to restart the web server component? My array is still completely offline. HELP PLEASE!
  10. If I may refer back to the problem I am having and posted of earlier, my array is still down but I just noticed that the tower website actually keeps showing "System is rebooting..." even after being rebooted a few times. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  11. I rebooted the array and the web interface and array is offline. My syslog is attached. Any help would be appreciate. Thanks. syslog_2012-05-09.txt
  12. I believe we have RC2-test and are awaiting RC2.
  13. unraid wouldn't really be run on it. :-) One parity drive to protect 895 wouldn't be much protection. Each of those slots in the photo actually hold 14 drives. There would be 32-64 arrays in that beast.
  14. A MAID archiver is right in line with the operation of unraid. It doesn't run unraid of course but I stumbled on this and thought I would share. And only for $1400. So tempting. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Copan-Systems-44U-23-MAID-File-Archiver-SATA-Hard-Drive-Array-Rack-Enclosure-1-/200746175391?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ebd678b9f#ht_5170wt_906
