  1. Not sure which build gets installed if you do that. You only chord EITHER a Nvidia build OR a stock build.
  2. At this point I would let the rebuild finish and then attempt the fs repair. the point I was making is that (if this happens again) you can first try the repair on the emulated disk before starting the rebuild. If this fails then the result of the rebuild will fail as well so no point in even attempting it, but if it succeeds you can switch back to normal mode and then rebuild knowing that what is now showing on the emulated drive is what will end up on the physical disk after the rebuild.
  3. There is something a bit off from your described steps. You should not need to create a new user on Unraid - the plugin wants you to use the same user as used for the Unraid GUI (user=root, password=whatever-you-set).
  4. That would work. Whatever is showing before you start a rebuild is what will show after the rebuild. if you would prefer then it is perfectly acceptable to run the file system check/repair on the emulated drive before doing a rebuild. If that does not fix the ‘unmountable’ file system then the rebuild will not help as the rebuild simply transfers what is on the emulated drive to the physical drive.
  5. If you ever tried to copy between a disk share and a User share you can end up with all your files truncated to 0 size. This is because a User Share is just another view of the files on the Disk Shares, and when you do such a copy you end up trying to write the file over-itself which ends up truncated to 0 size. The reason is an architectural one in that because the paths are different the Linux level does not realise they are actually the same file so does not block the copy attempt. This is one of the reasons that Disk Shares are not normally enabled by default.
  6. Is your cache drive large enough to hold the contents of the shares set to Prefer?
  7. Any time you set install a container via the Apps tab then the settings you used are saved in a template on the flash dtive. If you restore the containers using the Previous Apps section of the Apps tab then these will be used so that they will be put back with their previous settings intact.
  8. I am not sure this would work well. You might be better off suggesting to plugin authors that they add entries in the other section if appropriate.
  9. Deleting the hash files should have no effect, so what is the unexpected behaviour?
  10. BTRFS (or BTRFS encrypted) are the only file system types supported if you have more than 1 drive in the pool.
  11. That is not atypical when writing to the parity protected array. You may find this section of the online documentation useful in explains why and the options that are available for maximising performance.
  12. Just for reference, installing the CA Config Editor plugin gives a convenient way of editing any of the configuration files on the flash drive.
  13. There have been those who want files on the cache for performance and have written their own scripts to perform periodic backups to the array. Unraid will not as standard allow a file to be in two different locations, but if you set this up manually then it shows the cache copy in preference to the one on the array.
  14. No - the standard ‘Unraid behavior is to only ever have one copy of any file so 0nce a file is flushed to the main array it is removed from a cache pool.
  15. It is not that easy as there are some Use Cases that have been brought up in the past where files are deliberately placed in the ‘wrong’ position. The change you mention would break any system with that Use Case.
  16. I do not think you can do what you describe. Unraid only loads off the USB (it runs from RAM) and uses the USB to store all its settings and to hold the licence. It is not ‘installed’ in the traditional OS sense.
  17. You can use the Parity Tuning Plugin to offload the parity check to idle hours. It means elapsed time goes up but the impact on daily usage goes down. Since a parity check tends to be a relatively rare event as it is basically a confidence check this normally does not matter.
  18. Not sure what your problem is, but I have one of those cards installed in one of my servers and it is working fine with the current Nvidia builds. I specifically went for that card because of the fact that it is fanless and therefore silent.
  19. Is that a new file or are you overwriting an existing file? Only new files will go via the cache, existing files are over-written in-situ.
  20. You only get a folder structure on the cache drive if there are files for the relevant share. When mover runs then after moving any files for a share it removes any empty folders.
  21. The name 'cache' is historical from its original purpose - now-a-days it can simply be an application drive/pool. Whether anything is cached is controlled at the individual share level. The Unraid 6.9.0 release brings with it the option to call a pool anything you like.
  22. Is the network you are connecting FROM on a different subnet to 192.168.0.x ? If not that might explain why you are having problems as you could be picking up the wrong DNS server. I have deliberately set my home subnet to not be on the 192.168.0.x or 192.168.1.x subnets as these are frequently encountered on the client end. You might be better off specifying something like as a DNS server.
  23. Have you made sure that you have specified a DNS server that is visible via the tunnel?
  24. Which option did you choose when setting up WireGuard?
