  1. The false pending sector issue? That's not file system related.
  2. Seems to be a common issue, some/most times it goes way after a couple of power cycles.
  3. Backplane appears to use regular SFF-8087, so you just need a couple of SFF-8087 to SFF8087 cables, or SFF-8643 to SFF-8087 if you go with a SAS3 model.
  4. Recently one user with the same controller found it overwrote the first few sectors of every disk destroying the data after a firmware update, did you make any?
  5. That's a known issue, user shares always add some overhead, but some users/configs are much more affected than others, direct i/o shouldn't make any difference with recent releases, IMHO best option is still to use disk shares whenever possible.
  6. Googling the p840 looks like it uses double wide SFF-8087, which is uncommon, first time I've seen those, but if you get for example one of the recommended LSI HBAs you just need to need to get a cable that matches the LSI on one end, regular SFF-8087 (SAS2 models) or SFF-8643 (SAS3 models) and whatever you have on your backplane.
  7. Not familiar with that one, but we don't recommend RAID controllers for Unraid, only true HBAs.
  8. If they don't provide a way of doing it using Linux you're limited to Windows.
  9. Yes, will also need to re-configure them. Up to you. Yes.
  10. Yes, those cables are for USB 2.0.
  11. This makes it impossible to answer based on the info provided:
  12. Best way to restore (so that you can keep doing the incremental backups) is to send/receive the backup to the destination where you do the original snapshots on that volume, then create a new read/write snapshot to the original data location, this way data is restored and you can then create future snapshots and continue to incrementally send them to the backup destination.
