    Dynamix - V6 Plugins

    Thanks for looking into this - I've just had time to check and unfortunately the form does not appear to be storing shares with brackets in. Apologies for delay in checking - been buried in other things. Also, I've just noticed that whilst it's cache-dirs is enabled on my machine, it wasn't running (something another user pointed out above). Which would probably explain frequent temporary lockups of my machine as drives are spun. I'm remote at the moment, but will look into it more later today. As a side issue, has Unraid/Linux always paused the system whilst drives spin up? I've seen others with the issue, but don't recall an answer. I don't think it used to happen (8-10 years ago), but that could have just been fewer drives, data and requirements back then. Now everything from downloads, transfers, Plex transcodes, log viewer, etc. is unavailable for a minute whilst 19 data drives are spun up (although the main Web GUI appears fine).
  2. Not all drives are bolted down - some people have them that travel to and from locations. It's not inconceivable that a drive could get taken. Workplaces have removed drives waiting to be disposed of that could be swiped. Granted, they're not supposed to, but it's not that unbelievable. Genuine question: isn't the main reason of drive encryption to protect your data should it fall into the wrong hands?

    [Support] binhex - NZBGet

    Hi - just realised I'm still on the old version of this. Is it still stuck in a loop on unpacking? If it means setting and testing for max limits I might stay where I am for now - save that for a weekend job.

    Thanks for this guys. @Frank1940 - interesting, thanks. And I was expecting the same results too. I'm planning a restructure of my file system, so I'll pull my Shares into line then, I've reverted to excluding shares for now. Since the filesystem can handle the characters though, it's good that the plugin can be updated to accommodate.

    Dynamix - V6 Plugins

    Hi - currently have some folders excluded in Cache Dir, and I'm experimenting with switching over to include. It appears not to like some of my folder names - includes not saved, plugin stopped and errors in my log...

    UPS for unraid

    Inspection shows the battery has two vertical cracks on one end with an indent in the middle (ignore the dramatic looking smear, that;'s just a blemish in the plastic). It also rattles when lightly shaken. Might explain why the UPS is dead...

    UPS for unraid

    Well, I had a spare five minutes, so I went at it with the screwdriver. The battery in a CyberPower Value800EILCD is a Leoch DJW12-9.0 (12V9.0AH). Replacements here cost about £20, so it's worth trying to see whether it'll come back from the dead.

    UPS for unraid

    Thanks for that. According to the CyberPower website, it's not changeable (although It probably is), and from the Value1200 up, it's a simpler process (unscrew front panel, remove battery cover, slide out battery). Yes - I'm thankful for having it in the system, since it could have been a lot worse. The whole town was out for a short while, and some places didn't open the next day as all freezers/refrigerators were knocked out. Thanks for your help - I'll take a look at it this weekend, although might buy a second one anyway and relegate this to the desktop PC.

    UPS for unraid

    I did a brief test when I originally installed it (by plugging my server in and turning off the power). To be honest, I've set it and forgotten about it since - it's under the stairs so it's entirely likely it could have been displaying a fault that I missed. We're fortunate enough to have reliable power where I am, so it's never really been discharged. I thought I got it a few years ago, and I've just found the invoice. July '15, so a bit longer than that. If the battery has worn out, would the unit be completely dead? Either way, the manual states 3 years expected life, and I got 3 years and a month. Can you change the batteries on these, or is it a new unit?

    UPS for unraid

    Well, after buying a CyperPower Value800EILCD a few years ago, I had my first power outage. Only off for about 60 seconds, but whatever happened it killed the UPS and everything shut down straight away. Checked fuses, but the UPS is dead. I'm currently racking everything up - anybody know of any decent 19" UPS suitable for unRaid (that don't cost the earth)? They all seem to be on the expensive side compared to the CyberPower bricks. Failing that, I'll get another CyberPower one. Or is there any mileage in getting a used one and replacing the batteries? (it sounds odd to me, but you never know)
  11. I recently wrote a Windows VBS script that scanned all files and folders on a share and saved it to a CSV file. Something like this could be edited and run as a scheduled task. However, it might be better to write something in User Scripts, save the data to the flash/cache and run it as a cron job. Been meaning to have a look at writing some user scripts...

    [Support] binhex - NZBGet

    I've not heard of any difference from queue size FWIW, but a parity check can slow down a lot of things. Even if it's not part of the array, the parity traffic will still make an impact.

    Once something has downloaded, Sonarr will make a backup copy of it, copy that backup into the correct location and then delete the originals. This overhead *could* slow down your downloads - especially if you are downloading straight the unraid array (ie, not onto a cache drive) as they will be competing for use of the parity drive. OR, your ISP might be throttling your connection. Just a couple of thoughts.

    SSD Array for unraid?

    Thanks for this - given me a lot to look into and think about.

    SSD Array for unraid?

    Samsung announced this week mass production of consumer level 4TB SSDs. Whilst the prices aren't known yet (to me at least), it got me thinking again about a supported version of unRaid running on SSDs. I'd quite happily shift over to something running quieter, faster, smaller and more efficient at some point. Does anybody know the latest on Lime Tech officially supporting/recommending SSDs in the array? Or does the TRIM rule it out completely?
