  1. Everybody please understand this is not intended as a Tech Support thread. Nothing wrong with indicating you have a problem because of the install that will alert others they might as well. However please create a new topic in the General section so it can be looked at better and trouble shot more appropriately. 


    This is literally the only time when we encourage cross posting. 😁

  2. Could very well be. Or if the guys at limetech had a bit more info maybe they could shine a little more light on the subject as far as what a fix could be maybe even a tweak on your system.  Problem not knowing what the problem is its hard to address.  Does your logs show anything either on the app or unraid. I know you posted a screen shot, but is there anything else?

    I still tend to leave it at split level 1 for tv as I'd prefer to have everything related to a show in a single folder on a disk, but there is no real reason I suppose. My brain just likes things ordered like that.



    Movies\Movie Name (year)\Movie Name is how everything is structured, and with metadata not downloading it's only a single file in a given movie folder, so there is really nothing to split beyond the first level.


    That's just it. Since your asking it NOT to split beyond that everything is always going to the same drive. 

    meaning if you tell it to store Movies on Disk 1 then it'll never go beyond disk 1. 


    I used to be really bad at making sure all my seasons of a show are in the same Tv Folder. Now I'm just making sure all of the files from say Lucifer Season 1 remain together. I don't care about Season 2 or Season 3 as long as ALL episodes from a Season stay together.  When you drill down to TV or Movie shares it displays them all together, because unraid is doing all the magic in the back end. Plus Plex, Emby or whatever you use don't care either.   

  4. Mine is as follows




    Now I'm only running one Share called media and I have it set to split at the third level


    I could only Imagine if your Not running the Media Folder you could get a way with 2 on TV which would allow the Seasons to be split all over the array, but would keep all files for each season together. 


    Here's a Link to the Manual about it.


  5. You could click on a share and find the file and if you look to the very right it should list every location that file is at.  Cache, Disk1, Disk2 and so forth. 




    Yes for the record I did copy this onto my SSD/Cache to show you. Lol



  6. Sep 14 15:32:35 Media-Server  shfs: cache disk full




    On your Cache drive your need to adjust the Minimum Free Space because that monitors the entire drive not shares. Shares are drive level Disk1..Disk2 so on. 


    In order to adjust this you need to do the following. 

    1. Stop your array

    2. Click on your Cache drive

    3. Set the minimum

    4. Restart array 


    I have mine set to 20GB, but I might need to adjust that since I sometimes have files that are sometimes a little larger, but luckily I haven't had any issues since my Mover normally catches it before its to late.

  7. 1. Depending on which version of unraid your running you could use Dynamix File Manager. You need 6.10 installed to use it thou. 

    2. Also you could use the user.scripts plugin and create a few scripts that will copy or move things for you at certain date/time

    3. Make sure you install the Backup/Restore plugin. Its great for backing up and restoring  your SSD if it ever happens again. 

    4. You could use the unassigned devices plugin to connect your USB drive and copy/move to it as well. 


    There are a log of solutions depending on your needs. 


    like @trurl was more or less said. I've followed threads with him helping people and he literally holds peoples hands telling them exactly what to type to the point of "are you kidding me", but he has the patience and wants to help. There are several people that do that here. . 

    I don't have the patience myself or the skill set, but I have no problems throwing a few buzz words or suggestions to give people at least enough so they can travel the path and figure it out. 


    Nobody here will leave you high and dry. We all want everybody to be successful. 


    I personally couldn't help much because I use Plex and to this date have never tried Emby so I didn't focus much on this post because I would of even more lost than you. Lol
