  1. Grab the Trial of unraid and give it a go.
  2. Your very welcome. Its been a very long requested feature and the more that use it, comment on it and request refinements the better it can only get. Have fun with it.
  3. Also if your using 6.10.3 and Dynamix Filemanager Plugin, you can just check the box next to it and use the button below or to the right of the folder for changing owner or permission. I find myself using this feature a lot after I installed it. Sure you can move files around with it, but that's not as fun.
  4. Or some of us simply don't know what to do with the problem in the first place.
  5. Are you running any Power Splitters like a Molex to Multiple Sata or anything else out of the norm? I'm only asking this because I had two drives go "bad" when it was just a bad cable to 2 different drives. Or Drive Cage aka box that holds Multiple drives has a bad power connector or Sata Connector on the can cause issues too.
  6. I set mine to run at 12AM first of the month while I'm sleeping. I know mine takes approximately 9hours so I just leave it alone during that period until I get a notification from the server telling me its done. At first it seemed like much, but lets face it if your not running it often how do you really know your data is Parity protected if you have a problem? Just my prospective of course.
  7. Honestly your numbers seem pretty much on par with what is considered Normal. I've come to the conclusion that things moving on unraid simply take as long as they need to take when your numbers seem normal. No because your parity will be syncing at the same time your adding data. However when you run your Next Parity check Id guess since my system takes 9hours on my 4TB Parity that yours would probably take close to 15-20hours with your 8TB drive. I personally have my Parity check set to run on the first of the month at 12AM. So when I'm sleeping it does its thing.
  8. Easy go into your Dockers tab for this plugin. Disable auto updates for all and then manually check each docker and not Homeassistant so you can update that particular one when you want, but all others will be updated. Its the same thing I do. I have a VPN running with a killswitch to some of my dockers. When it updates it sometimes wrecks my connections to my other dockers. So I update all my other dockers and I manually update my VPN so I know to gracefully shut everything else down, update and restart my other dockers. Same with the MyServer Plugin. I have that disabled as well because I've lost all outside connections before. So now I only update that one when I'm home. You just have to remember to enable/disable future Dockers or Plugins if you turn off the all update feature. This solution isn't perfect for HomeAssistant, but at least you have more control.
  9. 100% agree. If you have a Spare PC and a single drive or two give it a spin for 30 days. Install the Community App plugin and see what you can do with it. If your not satisfied then no harm other than some of your time.
  10. Oh sorry. I thought you just wanted a widget for Notifications. Yes that Plugin is a must for keeping things up to date automatically. Keep in mind you can select everything or you can tell it NOT to update specific things. For instance I have a Docker I use for VPN with a kill switch so I make sure to update that manually so it doesn't kill a few running things when it updates and I don't notice.
  11. Currently you can view the Action Center under the Apps Tab. You could also enable Notifications for Plugin/Docker updates which would give you a popup. Its not really a Dashboard widget, but it would popup enough to annoy you. Personally the notifications would drive me batty, but some people like to be driving a little mad now and then. Lol
  12. Looks like it would in your case. I was just asking questions to help prove your need even more that's all. Obviously we all have different work flows.
  13. My APC 1500 shows 900 for some odd reason. It shows I have 129minutes available when my 850 I just took offline last week showed about 1/2 of that. So I know its getting some correct readings, but not all.
  14. Think of it like this. Machine boots up off USB Copies its OS to RAM Never has to access USB again unless you save a configuration then it writes to both Ram and USB Turn off machine and it repeats the above again on reboot While your idea of SSD sounds sound, but is there really a speed increase? Security Increase? Reliability Increase? Maybe on Boot only, but nothing beyond that. Also while not using SSD it doesn't take up a sata connection or affect your license because your not giving up a slot and uses minimal power. I like the added security if I'm hacked and somebody installs something on to my system. On reboot its erased since its in RAM unless of course the hacker understands how unraid works then they would either target the USB or in your case the SSD. As for reliability my USB has been plugged into my machine since 2009. I have backups of it just incase it dies, but plugging away since 2009.
  15. Another Successful 0 Error Automatic Parity Check done. Thanks unraid. 8 hr, 28 min, 52 sec Average 131.0 MB/s 24TB Array 6x4TB IronWolf How's your numbers everybody?
  16. Honestly no. I'll have to keep checking and hopefully be able to nail it down to a time frame and share another report. Like I said its bizarre. It'll go weeks or even months with no problem then happen two days in a row and then weeks or days again.
  17. I have a share on my unraid server named uploads. My windows PC talks to it and uploads things to it. For some odd reason it'll stay mapped and connected and work like a charm for weeks on end and then other times it'll just drop over night or a few hours later. So I login to unraid, change the security and then back and I can connect via my Windows 10 Pro machine. At one time I believe in my smb-extra.conf file I had something in it, but I removed it because of an older machine couldn't connect at all. Anyways what I'm asking for help on is there something I'm missing that I should re-add to keep my share from randomly dropping and not being connectable anymore. I know for sure a Windows Reboot doesn't fix it. I've not tried mapping it to another machine to see if it drops both or just the one machine. I do know for sure if I try to look for the upload folder in my \\192.168.7.x it doesn't show up at all even if its set to public, but other shares do. This particular share is a Cache only share and I don't know if that makes a difference at all. Maybe my SSD is glitching some or something?
  18. Do you utilize the Cache Drive for your work at all? If you did its instant on and never turns off. I only say this because if I was working on something and I wrote it to the array it would store it instantly on the Cache before writing it to the HDD array. Obviously your usage and needs may vary. In the mean time you could just leave your drives up like you said and then when your done click on the main page to shut down your drives.
  19. Possible Feature Request. A Checkbox that could be checked like the over writing one after something is completed to send you a Notification? For example I'm moving a fair bit of data and I've checked though out the day to update its status. If I simply received a message. Your Dynamix File Manager Operation has been completed Obviously it would use whatever notifications you have already established in your settings.
  20. To be fair anything that I've encountered that is super easy to setup is very limited in features. unraid is very easy to start, but when you start adding VM's, reverse proxies, GPU Transcoding and a few other things it starts to get a bit complicated. I've seen several people say they can't figure things out and they are going straight to VM's and trying to setup access from the outside world when they can't even figure out shares. In my opinion people should install unraid and start a little slower and figure out how it works out of the box before venturing down the complicated route. Nothing wrong with going crazy, but you just can't blame the forum or the OS when you first install it. The idea of slamming it into 5th gear and going 100mph when your still trying to figure the simple things first. There are several people here that will help do the craziest things and videos have been made for a lot of things. People just need to have some patience and get their foot hold first before leaping into harder things that unraid can/will do for them.
  21. Mine is working just fine, but.............. Looking at my Plex Folder running the Plex Official Main Folder is set to Nobody 777 My Database's appear to be all Nobody 777 as well I don't recall ever changing them either.
  22. The user is just frustrated. We have all been there.
  23. This might might not be the most politically correct statement, but I'll make it anyways. "We are all Stupid Newbies" when we install unraid for the first time. Just like playing a game for the first time or trying any other software. It just takes some time and patience and you'll see. Eventually you'll be helping out somebody else for the first time with your experience and it becomes so much easier once you grasp it all. Until then keep asking questions until it all clicks. Trust me when I say this, IF YOU DON"T ASK somebody ELSE might miss the answer later.
