  1. Hmm that sounds pretty clever tbh... My aproach is little more manual, but this is also my 1st actual unraid build so... Well, I think I kinda answered my own question, I was playing with caching dirs settings and found a usable medium that both gives me a pretty good speed when searching the NAS for something, but also dont use a whole lot of CPU. Cant honestly see why I would upgrade the CPU/RAM, this uses super little power and does everything I want. So Ill just leave it as is
  2. So... I have been running this server for a month or so now, it's actually running pretty well. I just use it to stash copies of data in, like dumping it for long term storage in case something goes wrong. It's basically a glorified external drive. I'm still thinking it would maybe benefit from more CPU power, like when I parity check it takes quite a while, and so do mover script - I'm very unsure if that's just the drive speed, or if it's part of the CPU also? I can see in parity check the CPU use between 85-100% In general moving data it us
  3. Lol, wait a second, I had actually not installed the CA... But I have now! Thanks. So installed the plugin and whatever it did, this was exactly what I needed. There is a little CPU usage all the time, but whatever, thats fine, at least everything is surprisingly snappy - i mean, this is one of the absolute slowest CPUs you can find in modern time, and it still works pretty damn well Problem solved
  4. yup ill see what i can figure out. might all just need some tweaking and this little sub $50 motherboard/cpu combo is not too bad for something simple and lightweight
  5. just found this, seems to be the same thing but easier to read https://wiki.unraid.net/UnRAID_Plugins_for_V6 ill guess i give this a go later, thanks
  6. sorry, what? i imagine its a plugin i have to install and run i just found this, is that what your talking about?
  7. the reason im asking, is when i access the files, it stalls a little and takes some time to update the folder im looking in, like my image library im not sure if the cpu is the limit, or its simply just because its mixed drives its spread across and take a little to get it working (its not long, we talk a few seconds, i just noticed it stalls every time i go a folder back or deeper)
  8. I just build a very simple backup box, running unraid Had some things laying around, just enough to build a server out of. So it ended up with 5 drives, with a total usable storage of 8TB + 250 cache + 4tb parity 8GB RAM Got a 400watt passive power supply in there for low noise too, and a lot of Noctua fans, so all in all im pretty happy. The thing is, the CPU running all this, is a N3050 I was honestly very curious if this would ever work, and it does, it actually works as I expected. I just cant help but think, if I would
  9. I am tempted to go back to unraid, buts been years since I last used this software and at that time It could not live up to what I wanted to achieve. I think its about time to change back, I just don't know how. I have a home server build around a HP Z220 SFF workstation. CPU is a G2030 dualcore 3GHz 8 GB ECC DDR3 RAM Quadro K600 graphics Firewire controller SATA3 controller 1x Hitachi NAS Drive 4TB 1x Seagate IronWolf Drive 4TB 1x Intel 60GB SSD 250Watt PSU What I want is this: Sync Dropbox Sync GDrive
  10. I currently have a Windows Server Essentials 2016 machine working as a NAS here at home, but its way over complicated and not really necessary with a lot of the things that OS can do. It came with the decommissioned server I bought so had to try it out. I used to run a very simple unraid solution and im thinking maybe that is the way forward again. I have some few needs though and I know a proper Linux OS would be maybe the right call, I just feel unraid would be the simplest to setup and use for day to day duties. * needs to backup all content to Backb

    Switch systems?

    I do actually already have a CPU cooler fit for low TDP CPUs, so can skip that off the list. Also, I am thinking of modifying my Silverstone DS380 which I originally put on stock, because it was heating up my drives too much. If I re-use that case I need new hardware, because I don't have a ITX board available. No I dont plan on OC the build, but at my favorite store these are actually the cheapest DDR4 RAM available right now I am using normal hardware and not servergrade, because I dont have high requirements, right now Im thinking of an ASRock H110M-ITX motherboard, already ow
  12. I have a Z77 MSI motherboard with a G2030 CPU, 8GB Kingston DDR3 RAM, a 128 GB Toshiba SSD Cache, 2+2+3+4TB Hitachi drives an old ATX case, lots of noise fans and a X400 passive 400Watt Seasonic PSU. Build from parts I have scrapped from other computers in the house. Problem with it is its very noise, most likely to the bad chassis of the case and all the loud fans. I have many times considering taking care of that, but then again, its always nice to try new hardware too. The CPU is very low in performance, but this is only a dumb storage server not doing anything fancy at the moment
  13. Just to be sure I understand this method - I have a 3TB Parity drive + 2x2TB data drives and want to backup my 1TB picture collection, I can add a 1TB drive and make a cron job to daily backup the files to the UD drive? Should probably just try it out but don't want to mess anything up in case this is not the purpose of it.
  14. Ok I tried what you said, but I still see the database error. What could be wrong? I had not edited my config.pl, but I have now and the first lines of it looks like this: $data_dir = '/plexWatch/'; ## to store the DB, logfile - can be the same as this script $server_log = '/logs/Plex Media Server.log'; ## used to log IP address of user (alpha) $log_client_ip = 0; ## requires $server_log to be available too. (requires File::ReadBackwards) ## also required DEBUG log to be turned on in the PMS $debug_logging = 1; ## logs to $data_dir/debug.log ( not v
  15. I tried it and it still does not work I do have plex pass and am logged in everywere
