  1. I just installed the "My Servers" Unraid.net plugin and downloaded a backup file of my config. I also did a regular config backup directly on my server. The regular one is 587MB and the cloud one is 264MB. Why is this half the size? I opened both zips up, and is looks like the main difference is that the cloud backup doesn't include all my plugins folders. Does this happen to anyone else? Is this to be expected? Thanks
  2. I just upgraded UnRaid from 6.9.0 to 6.9.1, and then went to update all the plugins, and it's stalling on this one. Is there something I could have done wrong? It know CA Appdata Backup v2 was working properly before the upgrade.
  3. I was previously using Intel QuickSync with my Intel i3-10100 CPU (Integrated UHD Graphics 630), and I was able to get Plex to use hardware transcoding with the (hw) next to transcoded streams in Plex's Dashboard. I have since installed a Nvidia Quadro P400 card and got that to work with the new Nvidia-Drivers plugin. I'm having a hard time telling if both Intel QuickSync and Nvidia hardware transcoding are active or if it's now only Nvidia. Is there any way to tell? Thanks in advance.
  4. Short story: My old motherboard died, so I switched to new motherboard. UnRaid is working and accessible over the network, but the GUI mode isn't working directly on the server itself, I just see a blinking cursor in the top-left. Long version with details: I had Unraid version 6.8.3 stable running properly on my EVGA X58 SLI Motherboard & i7-930 up until mid December, when my motherboard failed and so I decided to build a whole new system. I bought the MSI MAG B460 TORPEDO Motherboard and Intel Core i3-10100 CPU. I saw from other forums posts that this motherboard has problems with 6.8.3 as the integrated network card needs newer drivers that only 6.9-RC2 has. So I made a backup of my "config" folder, used the UnRaid USB Flash Creator to put 6.9-RC2 opn the existing flash drive, and then I replaced the new "config" folder with my saved backup. This helped me get back up and running for the most part, except for the blinking cursor issue. I am able to access the Web UI from any other computer on my network, so I know it's working. Additionally, I have already done the following: Updated my BIOS to the most recent version (7C81vA1) I originally had problems even booting into the UnRaid USB drive, but I realized I needed to set my motherboard to UEFI mode and remove the hyphen from the "EFI" folder I also enabled D.T.M. in the BIOS since I saw it helped someone else on another forum post. Attached are my diagnostics and a video of how it looks at boot-up: komodo-diagnostics-20210118-1611.zip
  5. I did come across this post, and set it to Enabled, but it didn't fix the issue unfortunately...
  6. I'm also having this same issue when switching to a new motherboard after the old one failed. I'm now using the MSI MAG B460 TORPEDO and UnRaid 6.9-RC2, when previously I was on 6.8.3 stable. I had to use the RC2 in order for my networking drivers to work with the new motherboard. I can't get to the Web UI on the server itself (just see the blinking cursor), but I can access it over the network from my other computers.
  7. I should have been more clear. I *am* able to get the Web UI to work from my other computers on my network. But I can't get it to work on the computer running UnRaid, it just shows the blinking cursor. I prefer to have the GUI on the UnRaid itself for troubleshooting purposes.
  8. I'm having the same issue as you, I just bought the exact same motherboard. I did the update to 6.9.0 RC2 and got the network issue fixed, but for some reason I can't get the GUI (Web UI) mode to work. I just get a blinking underscore. Did you have a similar issue?
  9. No, no proxy here. But odd thing is I just tried forcing an update again, even though that didn't do anything last time, it now went through now it looks normal and says up-to-date. Not sure why it worked the 2nd time I tried that but not the first.
  10. Yes, I have, still not working unfortunately. A full reboot didn't do anything different either.
  11. Thanks for the suggestion, Frank, but that wouldn't work in my case as I run a file/folder comparison backup, so it checks to see what the differences are and copies over only the files it needs. I don't use my Unraid for just Music or Movies, I use it for my entire computer backup with hundreds thousands of folders for various things.
  12. Unfortunately, that didn't fix it for me. I had as my DNS originally, so I added as Primary and as Secondary and still have the same issue. The odd thing is that I just added a new application and that one does show "up-to-date" instead of not available, as you can see in the screenshot. I've also tried forcing an update, but that doesn't resolve it either.
  13. I had an idea to avoid ransomware from attacking both my main computer and my UnRaid. I figured that if I got ransomware on my main Windows computer and the UnRaid shares were mounted on my Windows machine, then the ransomware would infect the UnRaid too. To avoid this, I mounted the shares as read only for my account with SMB, and then ran backups from Windows to UnRaid over SFTP with my backup software Beyond Compare. The problem is that the permissions for the files copied with SFTP don't match the UnRaid default of "nobody:users" and instead show up as "root:root". Is there a way for me to set it up so that when I copy files using SFTP, all the the files have the right permissions? I've attached a screenshot of files copied using SMB (above) and SFTP (below). Or, alternatively, is there another way to do what I want (avoiding ransomware taking over both computers simultaneously) that I haven't thought of? Thanks in advance.
  14. Just noticed this today. The Dockers are running without problems but the version isn't showing up. Any ideas?
