  1. Hi everybody! I need some support with this container but it is more a general question. My issue is that Nextcloud is keeping some of my array drives awake. I noticed that this is due to data being written in /data folder of the container which is mounted to a user share /mnt/user/nextcloud-data. The cache preference of this share is set to Yes: Cache but the mover is moving all files to the array and from this point, nextcloud is mainly reading/writing from the array.. which keeps them awake. A possible solution would be to change the cache to Prefer: Cache so files are staying in the cache and new writes happen when the cache is full to the array. From my little knowledge of unRAID, I have not seen the option to allow a percentage of the cache to the share. I would like to achieve that kind of set up: (docker) /data --> (unRAID) /mnt/user/nextcloud-data (Only: Cache) (docker) /data/<username> --> (unRAID) /mnt/user/nextcloud-user-data (Yes: Cache) So it allows Nextcloud to read/write as much as it wants and the users' files are moved when the mover is running. Feel free to point me to any other set up you might have or ideas! Thanks for your help!
  2. Thank you @trurl, I have 0 experience with UnRaid and I did not know that. Does it means that I need a USB key always attached to my machine?
  3. Hi everyone, I am new to this community but I am super excited for this new Journey! I was a long time user of Synology NAS but as my need grows, I am looking for a new setup with more than 8 drives. Seems like Synology restricted the list of compatible drives with their NAS, so I would like to move away from them. The new build would be for storage only, I don't need to run Plex, VMs, Docker, ... I am looking for something which meets these requirements: Somewhat low power consumption (24/7) Minimum 8 drives 10Gbe Ethernet Here is the build I was thinking about: PSU (Re-used): EVGA 550 B5, 80 Plus Bronze 550W Chassis (New): Fractal Design Define 7 XL Motherboard (New): AsRock Rack Z490D4U-2L2T CPU (New): Intel Pentium G6405 (Intel i3-10110?) RAM (New): Crucial 8GB DDR4 2400 CL17 (x4) Boot Drive (New): SanDisk SSD Plus 240GB SATA III (x2) Cache Drive (Re-used): Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVME PCiE 4.0 M.2 (x2) Storage Drive (New): Seagate Exos X16 16TB (x8) HBA (New): LSI Internal SAS SATA 9211-8i Here are couple thoughts around my decisions: For low power NAS, Intel is better when idle A new HBA card will be added when going over 12 disk as I have only 14 SATA connectors total but minus 2 for boot drives I have seen people here with much more experience and knowledge than me as it is my first build, and I would love your opinion on the CPU/Motherboard combo? I was also looking at Ryzen 5 5600X with X570D4U. I would prefer to go with AMD as they don't change their socket every morning but the power draw at idle from the 5000 series might be a deal breaker.
