  1. Is there anyway to get PhotoPrism to auto scan the photo folder for new photos and add them?
  2. Does Nextcloud compress images from the phone when it uploads them? The same pictures that get auto uploaded via Dropbox are 2-3x larger than the ones from the Nextcloud app.
  3. Hey guys, I am wanting to use External Storages to link an unRAID share into NC. I have read through here that you can do this either by "local" if I pass through the parameters in the docker settings or "SMB / CIFS" which seems to be preferred so that the folder permissions are respected. My issue, is that my NC docker is on a custom br0 network with a fixed ip address so that I could give letsencrypt that ip address. Since NC is on the br0 network, I am unable to ping my unRAID ip address from within the NC docker and thus I am unable to connect to my unRAID share. Does anyone know of a way to allow NC to see my unRAID ip? EDIT: Another interesting development, I can ping any other device on my local network from within the NC docker, expect my unRAID ip... hmmm EDIT #2: As it turns out, it was not an interesting development that i could not access my unRAID ip. It is very well documented that this is by design. Anyway, I decided I would just test out using the local option and it appears to be working just fine.
  4. I like how user friendly setting up a server is and the great community. Honestly, I am having a hard time coming up with a new feature, it’s pretty fantastic just the way it is, but I would say having built in data integrity functionality would be a nice.
  5. Correct, my windows 10 VM is stored on an UD mount. So far 6.7.2 hasn’t caused any noticeable loading delays when I open Plex like 6.8 does for me. I would be interested to see if disabling all of the mitigation fixes would help. Been wondering if my i7 would eventually get so “nerfed” that I would notice it over time but I suspect others would have said something if that was the case. Other than that, I don’t really have any ideas on what it might be. I restarted plex, docker, and Unraid a bunch of times on 6.8 so it’s not that.
  6. Hey All, I upgraded to 6.8 last week and have been noticing that every time I attempt to load Plex, it takes forever to get a list of my media. When I look at the server, the issue appears to be that the CPU is maxing out. I downgraded to 6.7.2 today and everything appears to be working just fine. I have attached both a diagnostics from 6.8 and 6.7.2. Another note, I also run a Windows 10 VM and on 6.8 all my cores would turn red when doing a stress test vs 6.7.2 only 4 of the 8 cores turned red when stress testing. I have 4 of the 8 cpus pinned to this VM so maybe in 6.8 it's giving this VM all 8 cores and thus my CPU issue? Is anyone else experiencing any issues like this? pithos-diagnostics-20191221-1245.zip pithos-diagnostics-20191221-1914.zip
  7. Haven’t posted anything in awhile so I’ll leave this here...
  8. I don't know who I was kidding, if I actually followed the "if it aint broke" moto I would still be using WD external hard drives to store my data... Anyway, after messing with the VM last night, I believe the underlying issue was that Hibernation was still enabled. Although, I also removed a few red hat drivers that were not needed, as when I updated to 1903, Windows gave an error message about one of them. I think when I originally created the VM I bulk added all the drivers from the VirtIO driver iso.
  9. Thanks, I gave disabling that setting a try by no luck. I just rolled back and I can shutdown and restart again. I suppose "if it aint broke"...
  10. My Windows 10 VM Fails to Shutdown or Restart After Windows Update 1903 was installed. Prior to this update, everything worked as expected. Has anyone else experienced this?
  11. Woot! Thanks for your help! Also, I am ashamed that it is 2019 and as of this morning I was still on v12...
  12. I was chuckling about exactly this the other day! But hey it’s a scary place out there...
  13. Another uneventful update... THANKS! 😁 Those are the best kinds. Dashboard is looking great.
  14. Maybe I can offer a different perspective. First let’s go to the “1,000 foot bird eye view” and ask the question what are we trying to accomplish? Likely the answer is to protect data. The next question is what are you willing to do to protect said data? Well, we built a dedicated computer to store our important files. So we are going above and beyond what most “common” folks do to store files. When you start adding up the money spent on the computer hardware plus the actual storage drives, there is some serious money invested. I think if you look at it in that regard, and ask the question is my data worth an extra $100 dollars for a piece of hardware that is known to work great and let’s me stay on up to date software that comes with the latest security patches or is it worth it to use a piece of hardware with known issues that will likely not get better... well I know what my decision would be. Anyways just something to think about.
