    Not sure if my issue is tied into the (hopefully soon) forthcoming fix, but I realized my mover was not running in v6.11.5 recently.


    My leading theory was that there might be an issue with me having two cache drives (one for appdata, which I call 'cache' and one for downloads which I call 'download_drive').




    In the case of the following setting:

    Only move at this threshold of used cache space

    If I have that set to 50%, is it waiting until both drives reach 50%? Is there a way to trigger it based on just the 'download_drive' specifically, in my case.


    I'm running the same OS version. I'm believing its the newest update to the Plugin.  However, I think my version is working I"m not 100% sure. Lol I haven't checked my files in a while. 


    Interesting. I set my mover-turner to move files that are older than 5 days. Then I enabled logs and test mode. I made sure plugin was set to use plugin rules when mover was pressed. I got this in my logs. 


    Sep  8 13:15:13 Tower root: mover: started
    Sep  8 13:15:27 Tower root: mover: finished

    Moved nothing lol.


    I disabled Test Mode and now it appears to be moving files.

    Is this solely a 6.12 problem or does it affect 6.11.5 as well? Some of us are still on older releases. 😃

    I just clicked move in 6.11.5 and it seems to be moving files. 


    Then again some how my Move Now button follows plug-in filters: got changed to NO

    So I don't know if that is helpful or not helpful at all. 

    Grrrrr, now files I purposely delayed are being moved to the array. Lol Next time I'll check my settings before clicking a button. 


  3. Personally and I do mean personally. I've been using unraid since 2009 and I have had 3 builds using the same USB. The only thing I have 2 of is cases. Everything else has been swapped in and out of 1 case.  Motherboard, ram, yadda yadda. So what I did I picked through my pile of goodies and slapped together a second system and purchased 3 x 12TB drives and I'm still using my 6 x 4TB drives in my primary because I can swap them in and out as I need and expand their sizes when ever I need. That doesn't benefit my Backup server stuck at 24TB, but none the less I'm not full yet so I'll have to deal later. 


    Every day my some files on my Cache are backed up to another SSD in the same machine with a script I wrote which is nothing fancy, but it does what I need to it to. Also every day at 8AM when I know Plex is done doing all of its normal stuff my backup server connects via unassigned Devices to my Primary, backups all my media and other various files then disconnects. Its been running flawlessly for months. I've been meaning to change up the code some so when I turn on the Backup server it performs the backup and shuts its self off, but I keep forgetting. I intend to relocate my backup else where out of the house possibly into the garage hence the turning it on so it doesn't sweat to death or freeze or I might take it out to the shed we are building and insulating. I'm guessing it will end up in the shed honestly since it will be in a better environment temperature wise. 


    None the less save those old builds. You don't need lots of horsepower to do a backup especially if your primary is your media server or whatever its doing for you.

  4. I just look at it as in my case with 7 total drives 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 6

    When a drive is lost it knows that 1 + 1 + ? + 1 + 1 + 1 = 6 so it slots in 1 during the rebuild. 


    Sure its way more complicated than that, but I like to think simple and let the powers that be worry about how much Mayo is added to the Special Sauce. 

  5. I've lost 3 drives since 2009, but it was super easy to swap out another drive and hit rebuild. Just keep that in mind. ;)

    Ironically I lost 2 data drives and 1 parity drive. They was not at the same time, but it does happen. 

  6. Personally and I do mean personally looking at what your asking. 


    I would use Radarr to send off to DelugeVPN and then capture the download and then import into Plex or whatever then I'd have Tdarr setup so it just scans your Plex Folder and convert all by its self and rename. 

    Doesn't Radarr have settings that would pull down and then import into its self and rename? I don't use Radarr myself, but I thought that was the magic of it all.

  7. Here you go... Create Folders from files with Spaces. Keep in mind this version will process any and all files in a set directly. I didn't build in a Filter to look for specific tile types this time. I might update it later if I get the time. 



    This is for anybody else who finds this Topic and wants the use of it. Crazy how things popup months or years later after you post something up.

  8. Have you looked at Tdarr? It does all of that automatically. It will convert right where your files are and require literally no input from you after everything is setup. Its pretty neat actually. 


    As far as Filebot goes you can create custom Naming conventions and it will stick to them. That's why I said I can share my config file with you because I have my files set up a specific way too. Easy Peasy. 

  9. So basically you just want folders created from files with spaces. Or I should say just put the file in the folder. as it is.  I'll take a look at that. At the time I created this script I was having problems with Spaces and needed a utility. 


    Otherwise if you want some crazy naming convention you could give Filebot a try, but you would have to modify a file to your liking which can kinda be a pain in the butt, but I could share my config file if you really wanted the year and other info in it.

    There is a command line version of it that just runs when you drop files into it.

    Quick question, I am routing my directory paths, if a directory of mine has a “space”, do I use underscore or dash or enter it exactly with the space? Thanks

    Personally I always use . for spaces. Just keep in mind in the path you must use it exactly like it is. You could always change your path from Output files to Output.files and then change it back after you run this. Normally you wrap spaces in " " for example "Output files" so linux knows there is a space. I don't know if this will support it. I'll give it a try later when I can.

    You need to make sure you have community Applications installed. Which will give you an app store. 


    From there you want to install a Plugin called User.Scripts


    From there you simply post in the code I gave you and make your subtle changes and click the run button. 


    Community Applications is a must Plugin to have because it gives you a really cool store to install programs. 


    Don't worry just do your thing and I'll answer any questions as you come up with them. 😃


    The Pastebin link I posted up is a modified version of the code to help simply things. Just fire over questions as you need to and I'll do my best to keep answering them.

    OH sorry. Its just using some code that I posted up above and User.Scripts Plugin so you can either schedule the script to run or click on it to run it manually. You'll find plugin in the Community Applications App. 


    You can simply take the text with the above code and make a bash script just make sure you make it executable so it runs on your system. I just find running things via User.Scripts the easiest. 


    I also made a few changes so you just have to plug in a few values vs all of your paths. Also I threw in another option to move it to a final location just incase where your originally had the files are not the final location. 


    Also added in some Chmod magic in case you want your files not to be root which this script make them be.
