  1. Anyone have an answer to this question?
  2. I just upgraded from 6.3.5 to 6.4.1. Everything looks good except that if I click on any of my running Win10 VMs and try to web-VNC to them via the unRAID GUI, it doesn't work anymore. All I get is a black window pop up with a small multi-coloured garbled strip of pixels at the top. Is this a known issue in 6.4.x? If not, is there anything I can check? I can RDP into the VMs just fine but this sucks because it was easier and faster to connect via the unRAID GUI.
  3. Makes sense but it depends on how important the data is that you are backing up as well, vs the cost of backing up. Backing up PCs that don't store any user data locally as an example is not worth keeping three copies - if your PC failed and you lost your backup you can still re-install the OS and any other applications. And user data is often also stored in the cloud on Dropbox or something like that as well. But overall it's a good rule of thumb.
  4. I think I figured it out. I needed to allocate more memory to the crashplan app.
  5. The new CrashplanPRO docker was working fine however halfway through the de-dupe process it is constantly crashing on one particular file/folder it seems. Crashplan keeps restarting. Eventually it says it cannot connect to the backup service. I verified my account and connectivity are ok. Any idea what could be wrong?
  6. Personally I back up all of the computers in the house to unraid and then that is backed up to the crashplan cloud. That solves the problem and you only need to pay for one crashplan device license if you do it that way.. so I never personally used crashplan home's computer to computer backup feature. Also consider that if you back up your PCs to unraid, is it even necessary to then back up those backups to the cloud? After all, they are backups already and the original files are on the PCs which are still running... with that in mind I actually exclude pushing those PC backups sitting on unraid to the crashplan cloud and only backup the content on the unraid box that does not live anywhere else... I know everyone will have their own unique situations but that strategy works for me.
  7. Thought I'd post an update for those in a similar situation... Just migrated my account to Crashplan for small business, installed the new crashplan pro docker and did the adoption process since I was using the gfjardim docker previously. Adoption was virtually instant, it recognized all of my files and folders that I was backing up previously. Left the new docker 100% full default settings. It also creates it's own appdata folder so just needed to shut down the old docker and can go delete the files/folder from it later on. It is now synchronizing block information, been running for 20 minutes and already 10% complete on a total backup size of 3.4TB so in roughly 3 hours it looks like it should be back to normal! For a 75% discount for 12 months plus retain the existing subscription term and can cancel at any time, I think this move was a no-brainer - at the very least I will have until early 2019 to decide if I want to continue and pay the $10/month or go somewhere else...
  8. Thanks for the info! Yes, I am using the gfjardim docker... so I will look through the link you provided. Appreciate the help!
  9. I was about to post this same question. Does anyone know if the existing unraid crashplan docker will work if we were to migrate to a crashplan for small business account? The discount they are offering for the first year is very compelling and would give lots of time to consider alternatives and in my case, not have to re-upload 3.4TB of data somewhere else. So again, does anyone know if the existing unraid crashplan docker will work with a crashplan for small business account? Thanks!
  10. Keep answering my own questions here, sorry about that! I installed a third party tool that allowed me to delete the recovery partition and then I was able to expand the (C:) partition. All good now.
  11. Ok after a few reboots of the VM the unallocated space finally shows up in Windows Disk Management. However I discovered a new problem - there is a 450MB recovery partition in between the (C:) partition and the new unallocated space which is preventing me from expanding the (C:) partition. How can I do this? Disk management does not even give an option to delete the recovery partition?
  12. I'm running unraid 6.3.2. I have a Windows 10 VM that I'm trying to increase the size of the vdisk.img. I clicked on the name of the VM next to the icon and then changed the capacity of the disk as I've done before... however when I boot up the VM and go into computer management/disk management, it is not showing any increase in available disk space and therefore I cannot expand the partition inside the Windows VM. Am I missing something here? Is this not supported anymore? How can I get Windows to see the extra available virtual disk space?
  13. Well isn't that just super intuitive!!! Just a suggestion, but you would think Limetech would call that option "enable turbo write" or something like that since that was one of the main features in the new release!!! Thanks for pointing this out.
