  1. i find myself in same situation as @kricker as of last night. getting same msg to run resiserfsck with --rebuild-tree option. Hope it works for me as well as it did for him! fingers crossed.
  2. was in approx 25th place on Unraid leaderboard two days ago, now dropped to 50th something! my two low powered and 5+ year old AMD based servers can't keep up with newer CPUs. so it goes. glad this is taking off
  3. would it be cheaper/easier/faster to buy high capacity USB attached hard drives for backup and store them in different physical location? I have 5 TB usb drive at my office (12 miles from home) with my "must not lose" data on it.
  4. cost seems to be primary factor
  5. a good read. hope they get back online soon.
  6. thanks. do you still have long list of IP addresses & port mappings as shown in your screen shot? i have similar list and not sure if this is correct or not.
  7. did you get this fixed? i am on 6.5.0 and having same problem. Plex is unwatchable after just a few minutes. thanks.
  8. did 6.5.1 fix this slowdown with Plex? I am on 6.5.0 and not able to use Plex lately. Having same problem as bfeist, above. thanks.
  9. i recently precleared 8 TB WD red in a USB attached external enclosure. it will be my new parity (replacing 5 TB red) yeah, it takes days to finish. start now.
  10. thanks! yeah i am over due for upgrade to 6.3.x will clean up cache drive
  11. attached. thanks.
  12. having what looks to be similar problems with Sonarr this week. Part of the Sonarr log is below. Other parts of log mention "read only file system". Cannot shut down / re start Sonarr docker. This happened a day or two again and had to power off/on unRAID to get Sonarr to run properly. Sonarr failed to start: AppFolder /config is not writable
  13. i got this done a different way this week. I connected USB hard drive to small, low power Win10 PC running Resilio. Installed Resilio docker on unRaid box and got Resilio to backup my music, videos, and pictures shares from unRaid. It was slow but it worked. Many thanks to those behind the Resilio docker
  14. a few years ago, i built my server using a 5 TB WD Red as the parity drive. I have a mix of 2TB and 5TB reds in the case. Now looking for good used 5TB drives to swap out three 2TB drives. Yes, I know 8TB drives seem to be the drive of choice and are priced competitively but i am still a user of 5TB drives. thanks.
  15. uldsie - see if using the "following" option will permit you to follow the forums you want and hide the rest.
  16. no interest at $600. how about $500 or offer? or trade for a 5+ TB WD drive(s)? I realize that anyone with a 5+ TB drive probably has it in use.
  17. Selling my spare unRAID system. AMD FX 6300 six core CPU, 8 TB storage (WD and Hitachi mix, four 2TB data drives), 640 GB cache, 8 GB RAM, ASUS mobo, mid tower case , local pickup only, Wash DC area, zip 21046, asking $600 USD/ offer
  18. I have : 9 TB to backup 7 TB free space no data limits fast enough connection - I dont think about it
  19. I bought the WD reds because they are good drives. Wasn't really thinking about the warranty aspect of it though. Will consider drives from other manufacturers when it is upgrade time. Will a 5TB drive from Seagate or HGST have the same or smaller total capacity than my 5 TB WD Red parity drive?
  20. A year, I bought two 5TB WD Reds to replace the 2TB parity drive and one 2 TB data drive in my array. Now I am considering replacing other 2TB data drives and find that the 5TB Reds are unavailable or hard to find. The 6TB Reds seem to offer the most "bang for the buck" price wise now. The 5 TB Reds might be described as somewhat "dated". What 5+ TB drives are you buying that are not the latest and greatest but won't be dated too quickly?
  21. update : now running robocopy on small, low powered windows PC to backup data from primary unRAID box to my spare unRAID . have never used crashplan , may check into it. thanks.
  22. will look into a docker that can do a full system backup like this. already have digital pics, MP3s, and home movies backed up to several USB hard drives stored at separate physical locations.
  23. i have a licensed unRAID system that I am not using. any ideas how i can put it to use? it is a mid range AMD CPU, maybe 8 TB capacity. Built it for my son earlier this year but he is showing no interest in using it (he actually prefers to use my unRAID system for tv/movie watching). It has been powered off for a few months now.
  24. I use Chrome RD to connect to a PC at home from my work PC (on completely different networks)
