  1. And thank you for your help, much appreciated.
  2. I deliberately skipped Step 12 because it seemed safer to me, to rebuild parity on new disk, then recycle old parity disk into data. But having carried out Step 12 (array is now copying parity data now, all good), I can see that Unraid is much smarter than I gave it credit for. Serves me right. Disk 3 is about 5 years old, so I'm happy to bin it and replace it. Diagnostics attached. Probably academic now that the array is rebuilding ok. tower-diagnostics-20201121-1431.zip
  3. Latest stable Unraid Pro. Disk 3 (2TB) has failed, so have bought 1x 6TB to upgrade Parity from 4TB to 6TB. Power off Array Unplug cables from Parity Drive and plug into new 6TB. Also unplugged cables and removed Disk 3 (faulty data disk). Power up array. Assign 6TB drive to Parity. But Unraid is reporting "Wrong" It's wanting the 4TB I unplugged and doesn't like the 6TB I've installed and assigned to Parity. Probably a simple mistake on my part. Any suggestions from the audience please ? I've been following these instructions https://wiki.unraid.net/The_parity_swap_procedure
  4. Once every few years I myself having to do some simple task on my Unraid (like upgrade a parity disk), run into a simple problem and am stumped. I'd prefer to just pay someone to screen share into the server and fix it for me and I'll pay for it. If you're interested, please SMS me on +6421742634
  5. I'd buy this service right now. I only go near my Unraid once every few years and waste far too much time trying to relearn stuff. I'd much rather just hand money to someone to solve it for me. If you want some paid support work, please contact me +6421742634 Current problem, can't format a newly installed drive
  6. I'm trying to copy the config from the production USB drive to a backup USB drive. The production drive became unlicensed when updated to v6.4.1, so I'm hoping to move the config across to another (licensed) drive and get my server going again while I sort out the delicensing problem with Lime.
  7. I've just been caught out with the upgrade to 6.4.1 which has stopped my Unraid working due to having done a license transfer earlier this year to replace a damaged USB drive. Something has gone wrong earlier this year and the wrong license has been moved leaving me with a non-working Unraid. I have three Unraid USBs here (two are spares to sit on the shelf) + 1 that is out of my production machine that is delicensed. I'm really struggling to find the GUID in order to sort out the licensing. Can anyone suggest a method that works on Mac OS to find out the GUID ? I can't easily use the Unraid box as the two spare USBs won't boot for some reason and the box is headless making troubleshooting difficult. Preference is just to transfer license from a spare USB to the production USB to gets things running.
  8. Thanks Jorgen, appreciate the reply. AFP is off (but not sure why, is it better than SMB in a Mac environment ? SMD Enhanced OS X Interop has always been turned on. Thanks, Shane
  9. Dynamix Cache Directories v2016.08.26 installed and running for months Included Folder = Media_Share
  10. This copies entire contents of the USB device with directories intact. VALIDDIRS=("/*.*/")
  11. One last question, I would like the command to copy the DCIM folder and all contents, including subfolders. At the moment, it's copying the contents but not the subfolders. Ideally, a command to just copy the contents of the device without specifying the first folder would be perfect. I've been experimenting with adding a * to act as a wildcard, but not success yet
  12. Solved my problem by making this change ## VALIDDIRS=("/DCIM/[0-9][0-9][0-9]___[0-9][0-9]" "/DCIM/[0-9][0-9][0-9]CANON" "/DCIM/[0-9][0-9][0-9]_FUJI") VALIDDIRS=("/DCIM/") It's probably not as smart as it was before, but at least the files are copying over. I'll work backwards now and put the date suffix back in
  13. Changed this line to remove date suffix, didn't seem to fix it, but seeing more activity DESTINATION="/mnt/user/Private/Photos/To Be Filed/" /boot/config/plugins/unassigned.devices/IFLASHDRIVE.sh 2>&1Wed Jul 19 17:11:48 NZST 2017 IFLASHDRIVE-Started/mnt/user/Private/Photos/To Be Filed/processing /mnt/user/Private/Photos/To Be Filed/... chmod -R u-x,go-rwx,go+u,ugo+X /mnt/user/Private/Photos/To Be Filed/... chown -R nobody:users /mnt/user/Private/Photos/To Be Filed/... synccompleted, elapsed time: 00:00:04
  14. Thanks, I'm nearly there. The script is running, but throwing up this error message : Warning: preg_grep() expects parameter 2 to be array, boolean given in /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/unassigned.devices/include/lib.php on line 169 Secondly, I've tried to alter this line to define the destination, but suspect I have it wrong : ## DESTINATION="/mnt/user/Photos/To Be Filed/incoming/$(date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S-%N")/" DESTINATION="/mnt/Private/Photos/To Be Filed/incoming/$(date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S-%N")/" The complete path to the target directory is : smb://Tower._smb._tcp.local/Private/Photos/To Be Filed I've created a folder on the USB device called DCIM and dropped some photos into there. I assume by doing this, I don't need to alter the source in the script
  15. I read the first few pages of this thread (inc first post) before posting my query. I understand that files can be copied from a share to an unassigned device (external USB) using a script. That makes sense to me. I assume then, that copying files from the unassigned device into a specific share can also be scripted. Can someone confirm that assumption please ? Editing the sample scripts to work reliably in the opposite direction is beyond my meagre talents. I'm happy to reward someone who can provide a script to me that will copy the contents of a fixed named USB device into a specific share.
