I just triple checked. That's exactly how mine sits. Nice Catch

Yep, Like said above. Download a USB Trial and unplug all your drives in your current machine. Plug in a single drive and take it for a spin.
Id also recommend booting in and running a memory test with whatever you have installed. If its a memory problem its harder to tell while running, but the memory test would help isolate if its a Ram problem.

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.
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.
I had this issue after a while on my first Server. I switched to a new Motherboard and it magically went away. Don't know if it was my USB controller was dieing or if something else was conflicting during boot possible and IRQ?
Ah, Makes since. Because of Security reasons I've never tried to use Root as a user so I was a bit confused.
Like usual thanks for Clarifying things. @trurl
Honestly, if it worked before and doesn't now I'd say its a good sign to change that.
It might be an inconvenience to you, but for security its not a good choice.
When it worked were you on an older unraid version?
Just to make sure you are clear. Even if you have Hot Swappable bays in your machine unraid does not like hot swapping unless your using a USB drive via unassigned devices.
When your Cache gets full it can cause a world of trouble as you know.
unraid gives us so many configuration options, but sometimes the most obvious gets over looked.
Glad you good to go.
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.
Is there a chance that there was never space set for Minimum on your Cache drive. Not the share, but the actual cache drive?
I'm thinking that your SSD is simply full because you never set a Minimum on the drive its self.
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
You can install Dynamix File Manager and quickly fix Permission issues depending on what they are.

My Unraid 6 configuration is not behind a Router / NAT, which is what I would normally use as a firewall with port forwarding.
What are the best practices for an Unraid Firewall considering my situation?
Thanks in advance!
I guess the question should be what is your intent? Nearly everybody has their server behind a router.
A lot of people will opt not to enable Parity until their large moves have been completed, however I've always been about protecting my data than speed so I just enable parity and let the slow right do its thing.
Like @trurl pretty much said up above. Cache allows for fast storage and if your loading up apps Dockers/Plugins you will want them on the SSD/Cache because it insures speed and you don't have to wait for the Array to spin up for them to perform.

The entire docker FAQ. Not a huge issue in the greater scheme of things. After all, no one ever actually looks in there when they have problems.... 😜 (Told you I'd never let you forget it)
That's the one!!!! I felt so bad and stupid at the same time. I'm glad everybody stepped up and rebuilt it too. I Knew you wouldn't forget nor stop reminding me. Keeps a person Humble.
Exactly. If you have 2 what are the other 31?
Maybe a small Rockstar. I’ve had my fair share of mistakes. I’m pretty sure I accidentally deleted a HUGE Help threat one time vs moving it. Eeeeekkkkk
Thanks for recognition @SpencerJ I’m just a small gear in the larger machine here. There are so many people here that put in so much effort in comparison, but I do love the community and I’m here for the long haul.
Bring on the Roasting. I’m sure I’ve said or done some questionable things over the years. Lol.
If your having thumbstick issues you can pull it from your server and plugin to another PC and back it up. /config folder is the most important.

Yes, I verified that´s possible.
The cache works the same as the UD (as a disk outside the array). But I thought the cache files needed to be moved to the server to not risk losing it. I thought they will stay in memory until moved.
So, in short, does the cache just send files from one side to the other (cache / array)?
Yes the cache works like UD does. Keep in mind it was always the intention of the SSD/Cache to house your VM's, Appdata and shares. UD came along as a hot swappable plugin so you could backup things to a USB mounted drive with some scripting. It was later expanded to do other things. I can't think of a reason at the moment to say you shouldn't house your VM's, Appdata there. I'm sure there are Technical reasons why should do one or the other, but if it works for your work flow then so be it.
I'm running two 1TB SSD's in Raid 1 for my Cache/SSD to insure my Appdata is "more" protected. I don't know if Unassigned Devices can do that.

@tjb_altf4 @kizer Perfect solution. Goes very well. Thank you very much! Did not find the plugin/setting, embarrassing
I find things in unraid now and then and I've been running it since 2009. lol

Please, a doubt.
1) Does the cache move all files to array every day?
2) How to leave the files (Vms, Dockers...) in the SSD cache?
My VMs are in the UD, every week I make backup with CA Backup.
In the cache they are at risk of corruption (that's what I understood)? It doesn't seem safe to me.
You set the shares you never want to move to ONLY on your share settings, so it leaves all files on the SSD. Appdata, ISO, Domain
[Solved] Looking to migrate to Unraid question
in General Support
You could install unraid on a USB and then use unassigned.devices to copy your data on to a new disk in the array.
