  1. Hi All, I have a lot of folder names to change in my MOVIE share. Below is a change example of what I am contemplating: FOLDER NAME BEFORE CHANGE: Close_Encounters_Of_The_Third_Kind FOLDER NAME AFTER CHANGE: CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND Is there an UnRaid Rename App Plugin that is easy to use that can batch rename a bunch of folders as shown in example above? If no, what is the best open source easy to use Windows 10 Rename App I can install onto my Windows VM and make the batch folder name changes from my Windows VM to my MOVIES s
  2. Hi All, After watching the SpaceInvader One video in the YouTube link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjkaidlZmgs I orderered from Amazon the exact same Samsung 32GB flash drive he recommends in his YouTube video. I then followed the steps shown in the SpaceInvader One YouTube video in the link below to mount the ZIP backup to my new Samsung 32GB flash drive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEkgAhFI_GM Unfortunately, I hit a brick wall with the Unraid USB FLash Creator getting stuck at "Syncing file system" as shown in JPG below:
  3. Hi All, I am running Linux Mint as a VM and have encountered a problem with my mouse and keyboard going dead. The fix is to disconnect the Mouse and Keyboard from the USB ports dedicated to the UnRaid OS and connect these two devices to the PCI USB controller card pass through I have setup for my Linux Mint VM. After I do this my mouse and keyboard come alive within my VM. Can anybody in the community please clarify if the following assumption is correct or incorrect. Am I correct to assume a Mouse and Keyboard can be shared across both the host UnRaid OS and a Linux Mint VM
  4. Hi All, My VM mouse and keyboard locks up after I connect an external MyBook Hard Drive to a USB port that is part of a USB controller PCI card I added as a pass through. I have to FORCE STOP the VM so that I can work around the LOCKED VM and shut it down. Does such a problem mean I have a defective PCI USB Controller card? This card was working nicely and now it is not. My plan is to move the USB Controller card to a different PCI slot but I just wanted to know if such a LOCKED VM problem is a strong indicator of a commonly known problem relating to passing through a PCI U
  5. Jonathanm, THank you for your post. I am following the 11 steps under the "Data DIsks" section. The clearing process is going to take around 12 hours. After that is done I will format the disk and then add it to my Movies Share. Lastly, my Movie Share three drives were originally set to HIGH WATER and each drive indicates 80% full. Is it too late to change it from HIGH WATER over to FILL DISK after I add the new drive to the MOVIE Share? I kind of regret having chosen HIGH WATER and not FILL DISK from the beginning. Now I'm wondering if making such a change will cause data
  6. Hi All, I need to add more hard disk space to my Unraid Movie Share. So I purchased a new 10TB hard drive which matches the size of my parity drive. Listed below are the steps to adding a new hard drive to a SHARE as I understand them in my mind: Connect New SATA drive to SATA cable and Power cable. Preclear Drive. Format Drive. Assign new disk to Movie Share Run Parity Check so new drive gets added to parity drive. Regarding STEP 5. Is it necessary to perform a Parity Check? I ask because performing a parity check takes a very long t
  7. Ghost82, Thank you for your post. It blows my mind the rabbit hole the error I got can take me down into. I saw your link and my hat is off to you because that is some seriously complicated stuff. 🙂 At a basic level, I used the Windows 10 Template to build my Windows 10 VM. And this template has i440fx as a default. Do you think it is possible the UnRaid Developers could offer a Q35-5.1 version of the Windows10 template at some point in the future? I honestly think a Q35-5.1. Windows 10 template would have probably supported my Optical Drives with no compl
  8. Ghost82, Thank you for your two posts. I very much liked your suggestion relating to changing my Windows 10 VM from i440fx to Q35-5.1. The reason is because my Linux Mint VM is setup with Q35-5.1 and as I mentioned earlier all four Optical Drives work perfectly in my Linux Mint VM. So I thought it was worth a shot to make this change to my Windows 10 VM. However, when I clicked on the "UPDATE" button to save my change to Q35-5.1 I got the error shown below: I can't make heads or tails of the Description for the ERROR. It is not clear to m
  9. Ghost82, Thank you for your post. To answer your question. Yes, I already installed various versions of the Marvell drivers. In fact, I already visited the TenForums.com link you provided yesterday evening. I downloaded the Marvell_SATA_V1.2.0.1047 - Windows 10. ZIP file and it did not fix the problem. After more research I found a Marvell_SATA_V1.2.0.1049 version and this did not fix the problem either. The tsstcorp drive you mention also does not work. It is a Samsung Optical Drive and even though it is missing a YELLOW triangle it does not recognize a DVD disk when I put one in the
  10. Just a follow-up. I learned a new UnRaid Terminal Command which is "lsscsi". This command is suppose to list all of the SCSI devices installed in the server. Below is the output and from what I see it's a list of all my ARRAY hard drives plus my VM NVMe stick ( WDC WDS100T2B0C-00PXH0__1 ). Is it possible my NVMe stick is causing my Windows 10 to mistakenly see my Optical Drives as SCSI devices? Additionally, do you think using a Blacklisting approach targeted to my Marvell SATA Controller could enable Windows 10 to see the Optical Drives correctly? Thank you for your time.
  11. Ghost82, Thank you for your email. To answer your question I have not added a SCSI controller neither as hardware or software. Also it is news to me that Windows only sees SCSI drives. If that is the case shouldn't the Driver for my Marvell SATA controller card take care of this? In short, I don't understand why my Windows 10 Device Manager window shows theses Optical Drives as SCSI CdROM devices if in the CDRom Bus parameters shown below show I selected the "IDE" option: Additionally, the drop down menu below shows "SCSI" as one of the parameter options to pick
  12. Hi All, I am running the latest Unraid version and have both a Linux Mint VM and a Windows 10 VM configured. The problem is my Optical Drives work perfectly in my Linux Mint VM. However, in my Windows 10 VM the Optical drives fail to work. As shown below my Device Manager window shows the Optical drives with yellow triangle warnings. And the PROPERTIES window for one of the drives reads: " The device cannot start (Code 10) STATUS DEVICE POWER FAILURE." The SATA Controller card I am using has a Marvell 9512 chip. It also has a Marvell_SATA_V1.2.0.1049 - Windows
  13. Ghost82, Just wondering if you can clarify the following. Currently I have to manually click on the Unassigned Devices "MOUNT" button before I start my VM. If I don't do this my VM gives me a path error message and fails to start. So I looked into how I could configure my NVMe settings so it auto mounts itself. By clicking on the blue button circled below in YELLOW the UnRaid OS shows you a DISK EDIT Settings window where I discovered some settings I hope you can comment on. Regarding the PASSED THROUGH slider button shown below circled in YELLOW. Is it necess
  14. Ghost82, Thank you for your two posts. Great news! I got successful results following your instructions. The only problem I encountered came up after executing the command below in my UnRaid terminal: qemu-img create -f raw /mnt/disks/WDC_WDS100T2B0C-00PXH0_21146D802780/lnxdisk.img 300G The "Formatting" message shown in the terminal never disappeared. So I was not sure if the formatting was successfully completed or not. After 10 minutes of waiting I entered the command shown below: ls /mnt/disks/ WDC_WDS100T2B0C-00PXH0_21146D802780/ And it replied bac
  15. Ghost82, Thank you for your three recent posts. I deleted my NVMe's two partitions and then formatted and mounted my NVMe using my Unassigned devices app. Below is the terminal text I got after running the "ls /mnt/disks/" command inside my UnRaid terminal: root@tower:~# ls /mnt/disks/ WDC_WDS100T2B0C-00PXH0_21146D802780/ root@tower:~# Below is the LOG file my Unassigned Devices app generated. It summarizes how my NVMe is now newly formatted: May 25 21:44:26 tower kernel: nvme0n1: p1 p2 May 25 21:45:15 tower emhttpd: WDC_WDS100T2B0C-00PXH0_21146D802780 (nvme
