  1. Yes, that's the case, but what was nothing which bothered me. I just accepted it. It is more confusing and not ideal that we have to tweak the backups when upgrading to the new version. I will look now for the "fix", hope it will work. But what is about the old backup states in the chain? Will the cleanup work, I mean, the old backups before the last one are not moved to the new place. Edit: I moved the latest backup as suggested and then wanted to have a look if the script do the cleanup in the correct way, but the log is not complete. I backup 2 folders in this job, I can only see the details of the second folder backup, for example which backup states were deleted and which ones were preserved.
  2. OK, thanks but is it not possible to change the script instead? I don't understand why it is not 100% compatible to the old version - was that not possible?
  3. Thanks for the latest version, but in my understanding the existing "backup chain" should still be used with the new version - is that correct? So far I used version 0.6 and updated one backup job with the new script for a test and now it looks like the backup chain will be re-created (like a new initial backup) and ate a lot of additional space. If I change every job to the new script my backup disk will be full before all the jobs end. Do I something wrong? Please let me know. Many thanks!
  4. I am in contact with the developer on a regular basis and he let me know to check all these settings and compare with the docker-compose. That's the reason why I compared it. OK, so I will stop PP, do a backup, change the config -> then update it and restart and cross my fingers. Thanks for your support - I hope it will run without any troubles...
  5. OK, so I have to compare the complete template with the newest docker-compose from PP to edit, add and maybe delete some settings. For example "PHOTOPRISM_THUMB_FILTER" is no more part of the docker-compose - so just delete it in the template or will it corrupt anything? This setting is integrated in the gui of PP in the meantime.
  6. No, not all, for example UID and GID. And others are no more available in the newest Docker compose. Please have a look here: I am just not sure what will happen if I update the docker container with a new image.
  7. I used your PhotoPrism App to get the PhotoPrism as Docker configured in my unRaid. Works like a charm. With the newest Release all the variables were changed in the config and have a prefix PHOTOPRISM_. Do I need to edit the complete config manually or did you already update the app that I can skip this? Until now there was no update available from your app, so I presume I have to edit the config manually - correct?
  8. The link on the apps page? It's just a link to the thread here. I can understand that you don't want to explain things in detail for what a documentation is existing - but maybe you can give me a link to what I am searching for Thanks!
  9. Can I just delete it with rm "-" -r or how to proceed? I am a little bit nervous to destroy anything...
  10. Just to be sure, I need a BTRFS formatted external hard disk that it works correctly (hard links, inodes, etc) - right? Yesterday I had the idea to map my external disk (connected to my W10 machine, NTFS formatted and Bitlocker encrypted) to Unraid and use your script to make a backup copy which I want to store in my office.
  11. The problem is that the field to enter the script is not enabled, I cannot enter anything? What I am doing wrong?
  12. And when not on 6.9? I am still on 6.8 and the disk is "green" and still runs. I will probably update at the weekend to 6.9, but nevertheless I am interested how the behavior is on 6.8. Another question: How can I update the user script for a device in the plugin? It would be very cool to set the Rsync-Backup script here that the backup will be started automatically as soon as the hard disk is connected and mounted.
  13. Oh, maybe so easy 🙂 Thank you! I already installed it in the morning. The plugin uses the same spin down timer as Unraid, correct?
  14. Thanks for this wonderful plugin! I have one question: I use the rsync backup script from mgutt to copy all my data to my WD 12 TB external hdd. Should the UD plugin send the external disk to sleep when not used? Mine is running all the time.
  15. Any idea how to send the external backup hard disk to stand by when no backup is running?
  16. No problem, I will check this as soon as I did add the first backups within AppData. How this works now is really brilliant. I just thinking about how to do a second copy which I save in the office and refresh every week with a new backup. Probably the easiest one is to create 2 more scripts that will copy the data to the second and third external drive. Same config, just another target path and manually started.
  17. That is clear I did the same, but the problem is that other users have no NTFS permissions for your profile folder. I always use advanced sharing, maybe the easier sharing option also sets NTFS permissions. Not sure. Never used it the last years. EDIT: Yes, tested it: NTFS permissions are automatically set with the easier sharing option. I will create a group, add the Unraid-Backup-User to the group and give the permissions to the group. Then I am flexible if I want to change anything for the user accounts... It's always best practice to use groups. By the way, I created a share for the complete C$ because I want also to backup other folders in my profile, also some program folders in AppData etc. In the script I just added the path behind and all is fine...
  18. Another question... how did you solve it that your Backup user can access your Windows profile and things like desktop, documents, etc? Did you add the user to the admin group? Add NTFS read permissions for the profile folder? All not ideal...
  19. Awesome! Works like a charm! I will setup another one with another port for my wife's desktop and we are done Many thanks! 😄
  20. Wow, many thanks for the complete solution! I set it up but I am not sure if that really works on my server, because tcpdump is not recognized as command. I presume I have to install this first, right?
  21. Aahhhh, changed 5 min ago and startet backup That works Thanks for letting me know the possible ways to trigger a backup. The question is what would be the easiest and fastest to implement?
  22. Good idea! 🙂 But how to automate / trigger this from the Windows Client to make backup now? It must be so easy that my wife can do this. Maybe it's possible to use the "inbuilt" Ubuntu in W10 and mount the local disks and run it from there?
