  1. Ah I get what your saying. Looks like there was an update to address this right below your reply.

    The only thing unraid cares about is the serial number of your USB. Your license is tied to it. So if you want to build a machine and then swap literally everything out all your doing is taking the USB out and plugging it into the new machine. Wham'0 license works. Like @ChatNoir said your current license covers how many connected drives you are using. Yes that does include SSD's too. So if you purchase a 6 drive license and later want to add more drives you simply upgrade your license and your good to go. I purchased a 6 drive license in 2009 and later bought pro for the price of
  3. Oh. Normally the way I setup my stuff. For example with Plex I use UserShares TV/Movies/Music and set the share to use SSD. So when files are written to TV they are first written to SSD for speed and then every Sunday at 12:05AM they are moved to my Array to the TV folder. So my Drives are not spun up unless I'm reading off them directly or if a file I request via the TV share is stored on the Hard Drive vs the SSD/Cache. I'm guessing you could do the same with NextCloud so when files are written they are dropped onto your SSD and drives are not spun up unless you need
  4. This video really helped me understand how to use Time Machine in unraid.
  5. I'm pretty sure there is a NextCloud and a OpenCloud Docker in the Community Applications.
  6. January 1, 1968 Seatbelts became a requirement and to many it was a "I don't want to use it", but it has become the standard to which all vehicles now have them. Don't think of the Requirement for a Root password as a force. Nearly all OS's ask you to set a root password. I feel for you that you don't want to, but there has been many reported hacking's over the past month or two and tons of data has been lost and it has been identified that many never set something as simple as root password.
  7. I've had an unraid server running since 2009 I have my drives setup to turn off after 2hours and I use an SSD for my dockers. So other than some fans and my processor its been running at lower power for a long time unless I need it.

    I don't run VM's on my 4790K, but it has zero issues running plenty of dockers and Plex. FYI, plex has been running non stop on my server for 2years now. Once the family uses it, its nearly impossible to tell them I'm shutting down the server when Plex barely does anything idling except an occasional scan when you add new content. I also don't have any issues running my video since the 4790k doesn't require a video card to display so you could easily use another Video card for a VM. What your asking doesn't seem unreasonable at all. I'd consider throwing so mor
  9. Lets say you want all your files to move when your drive is 50%. So the Plugin will move your files when it is 50% Lets say you want all of your files to move when your drive is 50%, but at the end of the month before Parity is ran you want all your files in the array regardless of how full your SSD is. You have that option by using the Move on a Schedule within the Plugin, but you can't move on a schedule with the original unraid mover because the Plugin supersedes it. in all sense the old Mover is not used anymore unless you click the Move button within the plugin se
  10. using V1 tdarr_aio I was looking at my plugins via the library under Transcode Options and some of them say "Read error". They are all still in the Local Folder. Should I be worried? So I if I check the Community button vs the Local the error goes away until I return then it says Invalid Plugin in purple under the search field. All my Plugins ID's where copied from the local folder and I made sure the Local folder was selected when I added them the first time. I just don't know what is going on now thou. Everything seemed to be just fine until I clicked th
  11. I'm guessing unraid uses the same logic as "Hey we only have room for 3 people on the Elevator. So the 6 of you figure it out because 3 of you have to use the stairs." Sadly I know its not the answer you wanted to hear, but if your files are that tight with space you might want to consider either upgrade your drives or do some creative file moving around. I know when I'm that low on space I start considering moving shares around or throw in larger/more drives. For the record I had the same problem happen a time or two as well..
  12. Thanks for the info on the Thumbnails. Cache Pool aka 1 drive currently 1TB Evo 970 Cache/Appdata, shares and little scratch pad things I tinker with ssdBackup Pool aka 1 drive currently I believe its a Sandisk Pro 240GB Backup of my Cache/Appdata with Daily Snap Shots using a Rysync script Just keep in mind a lot of External Controller cards do not support Trim unless you do some research and know if your Firmware supports it. I have my two SSD's plugged directly into my Motherboard because my Particular board supports 10 Sata connections.
  13. Ok, I'm not nuts then. Lol Like I said I'm not complaining I just wanted to bring it up unless I'm the only one seeing this. My setup isn't anything special and Im pointing everything at the Cache Pool. I'm running two pools, but this was happening before I added the second SSD pool of 1 drive with 6.9.1 aka ssdBackup SSD. I don't recall this happening at all when I was running 6.8.3, but I noticed it when I installed it on 6.9.1 and I thought it was a bug, but nobody else mentioned it so I uninstalled it thinking it was possibly something new in the OS and just waited t
  14. Because I thought its supposed to be looking at the age of the files just on my SSD. Maybe I've gone a little bonkers lol. Unless your telling me its evaluating the files on the share not the files on the SSD which would cause drive spin up. If that is the case then I should set this plugin to check when I know my drives are already spun up say during a Plex Maintenance check. Normally that check is Daily 6AM-8AM. If it is looking at files from the "Share" not the Cache/SSD that would make total since of what is going on. However its spinning up my Parity for no reason if it isn't
  15. This is kinda interesting. I've toyed with the idea of using thumbnails many many times and just haven't ever pulled the trigger because I have zero idea on how much space it would actually need. I'm just shy of your Movie Collection, but I'm easily at your TV Collection or more and wondered how much space I'd need too. I'm running a 1TB 870evo for everything, but I have a spare 240 that I use for a this and that drive. Sorry I'm not really adding anything constructive, but I'm here to see where this goes too. I might consider going with thumbnails for Mov
  16. I'm not sure if its just me or what. Running 6.9.1, but I also noticed this at 6.9 too. I set my Mover Schedule to hourly and hourly my drives spin up and nothing happens since my Settings for Mover Tuning are set to 10% at 20Days. Of course my files are not 20days old so they shouldn't be moved, but why spin up some drives? I decided maybe its just a fluke. So I set my mover to move at 21:35. I waited and sure enough my drives spun up and still nothing moved because it shouldn't be moved since my files are not 20days old. This is what is in my Logs at tha
  17. Keep in mind he's probably sleeping.
  18. I would ask for help in its own Support Forum. You might get more eyes and replies there.
  19. Is there a command line or can there be to enable/disable remote connection? This is why I ask. If I can schedule remote access while at work and disable while I’m home it would be really nice. it’s a personal feeling, but I’d like to be able to schedule a turn on/off when I’m using remote access vs leaving it on all the time. I could use a cron script via User.Scripts or a built in scheduler via Plugin. I have other ways of logging in to enable/disable if this isn’t a possibility or doesn’t make sense. Just a future feature request of sorts.
  20. Yeas it is. I was just playing with the USB Restore last night. Did you see the video I posted in the Announcement thread? SpaceInvaderOne did a pretty cool video on it.
  21. @SpencerJ Make sure you check your Spam folder/Junk Folder. Sometimes things get sent there.
  22. Check this out. You can register a new USB to your account if you loose your old from your backup, by clicking a button.
  23. Basically its backing up your USB stick. I see my docker xml's in it along with my Plugin's and Config files. I personally back up my Cache/system/appdata to another smaller SSD in its own pool. Why do I do that? I backup my appdata once a week and I Figure if there is a BIG change to my appadata I could easily restore it from a daily snap shot. I don't run VM's as of now so I couldn't tell you if any of that data would be on the Flash of course if you run User.Scripts those are on their too. Has anybody else tried using it? Backup and Restore? I'd guess this is
  24. Just tried the USB Backup portion of MyServer's. I've made several changes over the past few weeks and it looks like the USB Backup has been keeping up just fine. I just grabbed a copy of my USB stick and I'm pretty confident I could restore and start it right up. I even included a txt file of my drive assignment using a script I found in User.Scripts so if I had a problem I could easily figure out which drives are where.
  25. YES!!!! You want to always leave the maximum amount of battery you can on your UPS. Draining a UPS can shorten its life, but if you have 25minutess in reserve and decide to wait until you have a few minutes left, what happens if your machine hangs on shutdown and doesn't make it entirely and dumps. I think I have 25minutes in reserve too. I probably should look at how much time I have with all drives spinning. Lol I have mine set if I loose power for 5minutes begin shut down. I have another UPS with a 3D Printer connected to it and I have it set that
