  1. Ok, so here is what I am doing to replace Crashplan and I want to make sure Duplicati is the best docker for this. Previously, each PC in the house we simply use Google Drive to save anything truly important. In most cases, this is free anyway each family member. On the server, I want to backup my important files so I was using a personal crashplan account to backup those files only. I also backed up my boot USB. We now also have a family office 365 account which gives each of us 1TB of storage so I am going to use Duplicati to backup to OneDrive since I already
  2. Ok, I am not a graphic artist in any sense.. but I had to chime in with this "parody".
  3. Here is the smartctl report. I was getting warning about the overall array and especially this disk for current pending sectors and offline uncorrectable. I also see a big number in the multi zone error rate section. Maybe it would be ok with a preclear but not a big deal to spend the money on a new 4TB parity drive and be prepared for the future. smartctl 6.5 2016-05-07 r4318 [x86_64-linux-4.9.30-unRAID] (local build) Copyright (C) 2002-16, Bruce Allen, Christian Franke, www.smartmontools.org === START OF INFORMATION SECTION === Model Family: Western Digital Caviar Green De
  4. For those who are interested, my failing drive was a WD15EADS Caviar Green. This drive had just over 7 years of power on hours. Not too bad for cheap storage!
  5. Picked up a 4tb easystore wd drive at best buy for $90. 4TB WD RED inside.. all happy and starting the parity swap process now.
  6. Yep, was reading this but was trying to decide if that is more work. I'm not a hoarder like some so my array has quite a bit of free space. But.. maybe time to plan for the future seeing I must replace a drive now. Thanks for the quick response.
  7. I have an array of 4 identical 1.5TB WD drives (3 data, 1 parity). One is likely failing and I'm just going to replace. I have found the exact same drive still for sale but it would be likely refurbished or old stock that has been sitting around for years. Is there any concern with replacing the failed data drive with different brand, model, RPM? (all current drives are 5400RPM). Also, 1.5TB is a bit difficult to come across. I know i could use a 2TB but only be able to use as much as my parity drive size but is there any other issues with that?
