  1. @z0ki I use Filebot and it creates folders just fine for me. This is the format for mine. Transformers(2007)(720p) /Transformers.mkv
  2. Also get @bonienl attention. Hes pretty nifty at doing this kind of stuff.
  3. My 2GB Cruzer has been kicking strong for the last 9-10 years. With all the changes to unRAID over the years, files accessed off the USB has dropped dramatically. It more or less loads the OS off the USB into ram and then your USB just sits there nearly in an idle state until you reboot it again.
  4. Just remember. Everything you install on your machine to allow remote access somebody else could attempt to use it as well.
  5. Honestly its totally up to you that's the awesomeness of unRAID. Everything TV related goes on my TV drives and everything Movie related goes on my Movie drives. Currently I have 8 data drives installed so I use Disk 7 for Backups of things in my house such as my Music, Photos, PC backups and home videos that I don't currently keep in Plex. Disk 8 is Basically the whatever else drive. More or less the Misses Dump Drive for her stuff. The reason I keep things separated like this is so its easier to do disc to disc off the network backups. Meaning I copy Disc 7 and Disc 8 to Portable USB drives and keep on a shelf. Some might use unRAID like a Jumbo drive and who cares where everything goes, but I'm kinda OCD like and I can't do that. Lol However the system will do whatever you want, but I like to keep a bit more order to things so its why I do what I described.
  6. This is why forever I've always created a folder with the same name as the video file to greatly reduce this "possible" windows issue. Example Transformers/Transformers.mkv I prefer Transformers(720)(2007)/Transformers.mkv but This is a bit of code I pieced together forever ago to create folders from File Names. https://forums.unraid.net/topic/48707-additional-scripts-for-userscripts-plugin/?do=findComment&comment=573858
  7. Personally I use this Train of thought using Plex Shares: TV, Movies Tv Shows Disc 1,2,3 Movies on Disc 4,5,6 I don't allow TV shows to Split seasons simply because I don't want to have to wait for discs to spin up to watch the next episode, but I'm guessing 3-5 seconds really isn't that big of a deal if I did. Lol
  8. I personally believe in the Doughnut theory. https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/mbyak8/apparently-some-people-believe-the-earth-is-shaped-like-a-donut-1

    UNRAID & Plex

    Personally I'd go unRAID with Plex Docker. Less over head than running unRAID with a windows VM and then running Plex as an application on top of that.
  10. Found this on Plex The most basic thing to remember is that the more Plex apps you have playing content at the same time, the more CPU power you’ll need. Generally speaking, if you have two Plex apps requiring transcoded content at the same time, that will require about twice the CPU processing power compared to if there was only one app playing content. If you want very basic minimum suggestions: No transcoding: Intel “Atom” 1.2GHz (NAS devices based on ARM processors should also be capable of at least one stream with no transcoding) Single 720p transcode: Intel Core i3 3.0 GHz Single 1080p transcode: Intel Core i5 3.0GHz Single 4K transcode: Intel Core i7 3.2GHz If you’ll need to support more than one simultaneous transcode, you’ll need a more powerful processor. Related Page: NAS Devices The Guideline Very roughly speaking, for a single full-transcode of a video, the following PassMark score requirements are a good guideline for the following average source file: 4K HDR (50Mbps, 10-bit HEVC) file: 17000 PassMark score (being transcoded to 10Mbps 1080p) 4K SDR (40Mbps, 8-bit HEVC) file: 12000 PassMark score (being transcoded to 10Mbps 1080p) 1080p (10Mbps, H.264) file: 2000 PassMark score 720p (4Mbps, H.264) file: 1500 PassMark score
  11. My only advice would be download a trial copy of unRAID on a USB stick and give it a go. Worst case you waste some time or you see the same awesome sauce we see. 😁
  12. Safe Mode disables Plugins/Dockers and in the simplistic terms runs the bare minimum. Sometimes things we add change our settings. Good catch on the Battery in the Bios. I had a 24hour glitch once because I selected the wrong day. Lol
  13. Personally I can't recommend APC enough. I've had really good experience with them. Plugin in the provided USB cable and unRAID sees it and your good to go.
  14. Best Solution would be to 1. Post up a complete Diagnostic. 2. Boot up your Machine in Safe Mode which disables all Plugins/Dockers and see if anything repeats. 3. Boot up Normally and Turn on Essential Plugins/Dockers and see if anything repeats. That's how I would tackle the situation. It can be literally anything from a bad cable, Docker eating up CPU or Hardware failing.
  15. Its your server do what you want. As long as they Plugins don't complain then nobody else will. 🤣
