  1. Did you enable it (right hand side of the config section)?
  2. In general I try to keep updates as seamless as possible, but this was such a big change that was always going to be practically impossible. If v2.0.0 wasn't only released less than 3 weeks ago this would have been labelled v3.0.0, which would have better conveyed the possibility of breaking changes. There shouldn't be any such breaking changes again, at least not in the v2 series.
  3. You also need to make sure you are running the latest version of the docker, there have been several releases since yesterday
  4. You need to click "Update Apps List" in Items list, then you need to go to each item and make sure the correct application type is set.

  6. Sounds like a good solution, I didn't know nextcloud worked that way
  7. https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/trigger-commands-on-file-or-directory-changes-with-incron/ (though not sure how you would install it) in addition to something like docker exec -it nextcloud php /path/to/occ files:scan
  8. I think we are all waiting for you to build it.
  9. nextcloud is a fork of owncloud. Iirc most of the owncloud staff moved to start up nextcloud. Seafile is based in china I think, which might be a concern for some people, but if not it's supposed to be decent, I've not used it myself, but you are probably going to have issues with anything if you are having issues with Nextcloud. If you want to move files onto nextcloud the easiest way is to manually move them not using a browser or the app, then just commandline in and tell it to scan for files.
  10. You can also just use duplicati with a cloud backend such as backblaze or google
  11. As @CHBMB has mentioned it twice but not put any links, here you go https://heimdall.site/ and https://github.com/linuxserver/Heimdall
  12. I got an 8TB ironwolf from ebuyer for £189 a few weeks ago, they are £198 at the moment though - https://www.ebuyer.com/760589-seagate-ironwolf-8tb-3-5-nas-hard-drive-at-ebuyer-com-st8000vn0022
  13. What was the failure in the post read?
  14. Yes, I was wrong thinking an "empty" disk was actually empty. The real takeaway, and answer to my original question, is if you want to remove the disks and keep parity valid you need to zero the drives manually while they are part of the array. *edit* might be a nice feature to have, if a drive is empty have a "Remove this drive and shrink array" button, which zeros the drive and unassigns it from the array.
  15. Also @trurl, I understand perfectly how parity works, if you don't understand how 2 identical drives removed from an array would mean parity is still valid then maybe it's you who doesn't understand parity. The issue at stake was whether the drives being empty *were* in fact identical, that's what I wasn't sure of, I wondered if formatting would help, it wouldn't as @jonathanm explained, so I played it safe and am doing a rebuild. *edit* I was being a bit facetious there as I'm sure trurl does understand how it works, but for anyone reading this who doesn't understand how removing 2 identical drives would mean parity was still correct and wants to know, I'll try to explain Imagine you have 4 drives, you want to remove 2. As long as they are *absolutely* identical they cancel each other out in terms of parity, in the example below 3 and 4 are the identical drives 1 2 3 4 P 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 So if you remove 3 and 4 you are left with 1 2 P 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 As you can see parity is exactly the same. The reason for this is the value for parity is always whatever is needed to make the sum of the drives even. The sum of 2 identical drives is *always* even (0+0 = 0 | 1 + 1 = 0), so removing them can't have any effect on the parity value, if parity is 1, then 1 + 0 is still 1 and if it's 0, then 0 + 0 is still 0. How you can be *absolutely* sure they are identical is another question, as if they aren't 100% identical you will have invalid parity, so it's very dangerous
