  1. Its your server do what you want. As long as they Plugins don't complain then nobody else will. 🤣
  2. Yep isn't it great. 😀 I'm still running my original case, but I've swapped out 2 psu's, 3 processors, 2nd Mother board, Ram and several Hard drives. I just dig how it all just keeps working. Lol
  3. Or you can run custom scripts from User.Scripts which more or less does it for you. Or you can copy them to your SSD drive. The reasoning behind disallowing running of code from your USB is to improve security of your system and your USB drive.
  4. Prefer basically tells your system to use your SSD to store the files unless it starts to get full then use your Array and should move them back when there is space available. I like to side on caution and make sure all my files stay on the SSD just in case to make sure nothing goes sideways. Like Possible Corruption.
  5. @midasisking Like many I use my SSD for Speed and to reduce the need to spin up my array for Docker Files. All my Media is on the Array and I want Plex to display my Library instantly vs waiting a disk to spin up. As for backing up my Dockers I simply use the CA Backup script and UnAssigned Devices to a portable drive connected via USB.
  6. That's the same place I map all of my Dockers. Actually mine is /mnt/cache/system/appdata/DockerName ,but you get the idea like yours. and for appdata I have Shares setting set to "Cache Only" to keep all my Plex Docker files on the SSD/Cache Drive.
  7. Watch this Video. He covers various things, but 2/3 thru the video he hits Time Machine. Mine has been working Flawlessly for a while now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J955nNIdo0
  8. As long as your actually trying to read off the "Correct" Drive using /mnt/disk* or which ever via your PC/Mac. I'm saying this because if your using a Cache drive in a User Share files might not actually be on the drive yet. Unless of course you know the files are on the removed drive and I'm rambling again. Lol
  9. Simply put and taken from the FAQ and a HUGE advantage IMHO. 😀 Q2. Why has this docker image been created, as we already have a unraid preclear plugin?. A2. Due to the fact that plugins rely on the underlying OS (Slackware) in order to run, any changes made by Limetech can potentially lead to a breakage with the preclear plgin, this has historically happened a number of times and is unfortunately a fact of life. So how do we try and mitigate this from happening?, by using Docker, this then gives us a known platform from which to run the preclear script, and should reduce the chances of this happening. So if LimeTech makes system changes the Docker can stay in tact and still perform like intended.
  10. Thanks for the info. I think I'm going to do exactly what you suggested. I took out the 1TB Spinner and put in a SSD and WOW what a world of difference in this iMac. One thing that rather annoyed me, but it is what it is now. I reconnected my TimeMachine to unRAID and wham erased all of my 476GB Backup. Lol So now I'm re-downloading 26k worth of Pictures and Videos off the Cloud. *sigh* Something told me I should of copied over my Photo Library first then connected to it, but live and learn. 😱 At least now I have a Totally clean machine and none of the Bloat that I've accumulated over the years.
  11. Nice!!!!! Clicked on a link and it brought me to Sierra. Thanks @wgstarks Don't know why for the life of me I couldn't just type in Sierra in and find it in the App Store. Talk about Dumb. Lol
  12. Honestly I use my Laptop way more than my Desktop, but I think I had either Sierra or High Sierra installed. Not 100% sure. I know my Laptop is running Mojave.
  13. I setup TimeMachine as a Shares on my Server for my Mac Desktop and Laptop. using SMB not AFP I recently had a system issue where my Desktop lost its drive *click*click*click* and I did a Restore via Internet which reinstalled Mountain Lion, which we all know is seriously Old. lol I was able to find a Copy of Maverick from My laptop, but can't find anything newer. Not trying to Pirate or anything, but it just seems like Apple doesn't keep older copies of its OS online so we can leap frog up the releases to get our older machines backup to the newest release, which is really annoying. Of course the net hasn't been kind and I can't get my machine back to Sierra or High Sierra. I looked in the App Store and it told me I wasn't compatible with my Currently installed OS so I'm trying to find a Happy Medium to get back to where I was. Any advice from the Fellow Mac users here? I'm not a serious Mac user, but I do enjoy my two machines and I must say its been a crash course in figuring out how to get things going again seeing all my photos are sitting in a TimeMachine Backup with a newer OS/Libary that I can't reload. Lol I do have my Laptop so I could enable Full Resolution and move my Photo Library to a portable, but I really did like the newer versions of the MacOS on my 27-inch machine. I'm thinking of using a Portable drive and copy my TimeMachine backup from unRAID to it and hopefully I can restore to it, but I'm not 100% sure it'll work since I've never tried it.
  14. @IamSpartacus Took me a while to find this post, but @Squid added a new feature to one of his Plugins that might help your situation some. CPU and I/O Priority during Mover. 😀
  15. Are there any big features or solutions you'd like to see come to unRAID that might be a ways out? Is there anything that you would like to see brought to unRAID that the community could lend a hand bringing to light? There are several Talented people that love to tinker. With everything "going to the cloud" do you ever see unRAID being a part of it? Sorry I didn't see the "A Question" Feel free to pick one from the 3. 😀
