  1. If you set up dockers on a SSD you can limit the drives from spinning all the time and reduce power consumption. A dedicated cache drive is nice for this. I don't use Plex. But you would put database on SSD and media on aray.
  2. Only you can chose what is best for you. Years ago I was using NAS4free. as a DLNA media streamer to my GoogleTV. Half the time I would have to reboot it to get Fuppies to work. There own forum talked about installing miniDLNA. But that was not part of the system. It was a embedded install on a CF card. Then it died. So I tried unRAID version 5. added plugins (minidlna) and it just worked. They where in development of version 6 with docker support and here we are. User friendly GUI. Doesn't stripe my data. Can add Drives at will. If you have a drive failure easy to replace. and your data may still be retrievable from your failed drive. You could use a old pc Windows or linux and install Plex or minidlna.and stream from there. Add a raid card your self, use raid on motherboard. if you chose to build your own thing. The big selling point for me was it was so easy to setup. For someone how doesn't write code. It is very appliance like. None stripped data.
  3. Possible solution to DVB kernel. Sometimes you have to look around. Many great developers here.
  4. So what is wrong with Unraid charging for cloud based backup. If you want it? Some of you are already paying someone else to to do it.
  5. If your not using Docker.(Great.loveit) Then no cache. If your intent on a Media server I would use a small SSD as cache for Jellyfin, MiniDLNA or Plex
  6. That may have bin true in version 5? Version 6 has disk limits. Basic is 6 disks allocate how you wish. options are yours. maybe 2 parity and 4 data disks as basic file server? or 1 parity 1 cache for Docker 3 data disk and 1 unassigned disk for VM. You chose it's your server.
  7. I only have a single cache disk. So I'm using XFS no problems here.
  8. At one time I used NAS4Free. One interesting thing it did is partitioned the drive. OS / Backup OS Latest / Previousversion Today thumb drives are getting bigger buy the day. Possible use case
  9. Yes Other dockers it will change. Icon URL: is where I change it This maybe it.
  10. Trying to change Docker icon for this docker and it will not change? Other dockers icons will. Tried other browser and cleared browser cache. Server reboot no luck? Any suggestions? Thanks
  11. Also! How can i access the console terminal window of that image to see that it actually works and mines? 😃 click on the docker and from the menu chose console. bump - Hi I am having the same problem I have installed the bitnn/alpine-xmrig docker container through CA but I do not know how to map the path or anything to get to to run ? sorry newbie... Container path /xming to host path user/apps/xming Hope that helps. The dockers you get from places other than the community store may have lots of hurdles and may not work at all.
  12. As for VM's I think some people put them on a unassigned ssd drive. Use cache for docker and a cache for shares. Advantage = fewer times array spins up. Example: downloads and CCTV are written to cache and move to the array at night.
  13. No expert here. But i feel that in a lot of cases unRAID can find a failing drive, or bad cable. And it will red ball your drive. failed. But in my opinion alot of times you can do exactly like you did and read your data externally. I have pulled a drive in the past. Read it externally. Shrank my array till i picked up a new drive and then added it back. What is nice is even a failed rebuild from parity is not a total loss. one read or write error and it fails. disk may still be usable enough to recover data wit no special tools.
