  1. Thanks for the tips. Both look interesting. I'll check them both in the next week when I find time
  2. I am no longer really using my system and I'm going use some drives for other projects and will sell a few. Is there a way to erase all data on all drives? I have searched the forums but couldn't find a clear way to do it on all drives simultaneously.
  3. Ok, since no one replied I took the jump to upgrade to v6. It's doing a parity check now but looks good for now. Still need to get used to it.
  4. Since a few days I'm getting no access to my shares and the GUI is no longer available, when I try to browse to the GUI I get "connection refused" in chrome. Telnetting to the server is no problem, I can access all files on the disks and on the USB and everything is available through the CLI. Also unMenu works perfectly, it signals no problems with the drives and lists the array as mounted. I couldn't find any clue to why this was happening, but then I saw in the error logs that the /dev/sda1, the USB drive might be corrupt and might need an fsck. I shut down my server
  5. Thanks for the info, it's clearer now. I know I'll need a controller card since I do not have any available SATA ports left on my mobo. Just need to find one that is cheap and good
  6. I currently have an Antec Three hundred case and all my drive slots (6) are allocated. I would like to add a few drives by adding a drive cage but I don't know what to look for. I have tried looking on this forums, and I found a bunch of info concerning the drive cages itself, but not about how to install it correctly and if it will be compatible with the motherboard and what other parts that are needed.If I would install fe an Icy Dock 5X3 cage, will I need only one connector to the PSU? Will I need a SATA cable for each drive? Or will I only need one cable to connect it to the motherboard? D
  7. I don't, I'm only 27 and picked that line up years ago from a friend and thought it very apropriate for this forum And it also makes me laugh when I see it. I can only guess where it comes from, I suppose it is from the beginning of the pc, early nineties when disk failures were more common than they are now.
  8. you can try going through the access logs of your hosting, look for entries that contain "POST". Usually they will list an IP address as well, you can use that IP to try and locate the hacker, results will vary Best way to prevent and solve hacks like this is to update your Joomla and all plugins/templates to the latest version. These updates will effectively close security holes in the installation. Also, change every password from database, to Joomla backend to FTP password of your hosting. Also do a full virus/malware scan of your system and all systems you use to connect to the
  9. I'm actively using Sab, sickbeard, couchpotato and unmenu. The hardware is the following: Asus P8B74-M LE motherboard Intel Pentium G850 CPU Corsair 2x4GB 1600 RAM The strange thing is that now the load has returned to normal. At the moment I experienced the high load there wasn't any file transfer or download or a download processing. Syslog is attached, and a top output from right now below: top - 15:32:51 up 13 days, 22:16, 1 user, load average: 0.32, 0.56, 0.62 Tasks: 83 total, 1 running, 82 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie Cpu(s): 0.6%us, 1.2%sy, 0.0%ni, 7
  10. I'm constantly having a high load on my server as of late. It is constantly aroud 3.75 to 4.15. When doing the top command, I see that a python process is causing the high load. How can I further investigate what keeps the python process so highly active? top - 20:43:51 up 10 days, 3:27, 1 user, load average: 3.85, 3.74, 3.70 Tasks: 86 total, 1 running, 85 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie Cpu(s): 0.6%us, 1.2%sy, 0.0%ni, 70.6%id, 26.8%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.8%si, 0.0%st Mem: 7980664k total, 7722860k used, 257804k free, 235528k buffers Swap: 0k total, 0k used,
  11. Thanks for the info, that was what I thought as well. The strange thing is that with my other drives 2 2TB WD EARX, it didn't ask me to format them after the preclear (or I can't remember), that's why I had doubts. Anyway the drive is formatted and works properly now.
  12. The preclearing went fine and indeed left nothing of the old partitions. Now I when adding this drive as cache drive to my system, it says that the drive is unformatted. There is currently nothing on this drive so I don't mind formatting it again, but is it possible that this indicates a problem with the drive?
  13. I'm currently preclearing a wd scorpio blue 320gb harddrive to use as cache drive. This drive used to have one big partition and a 100mb partition as win7 bootdrive. Now I'm curious if the preclear will remove the partitions? Or will the partitions still be available? Will I have to use partitioning software to get rid of the partitions?

    @ BetaQuasi: haven't thought about that Now I've done that and it seems that it is my datadisk that is connected over the 6Gbps cable. Now should it be better to connect my parity disk to this link? Or should I keep it for the cache drive I plan to add soon? The type of fan splitter you suggest BobPhoenix seems very interesting, I'll take a further look at it To bad Newegg doesn't deliver in Belgium, these cables are kinda hard to find here.

    That seems like a very interesting cable It will allow to connect both chassis fans and another extra fan that could be installed in a later stage. But will my mobo recognize the fan as one or as separate fans? Also, how can I find out which of my HDD's is connected over the 6GB/s sata port?
