  1. Yeah, I think I’ll swap in the spare and do some preclude runs on the drive and see what happens. I have a couple of months of warranty left anyway.
  2. Thanks Johnnie tower-smart-20190301-1001.zip
  3. I have a WD Red 8tb, which was shucked from a MyBook. It has 76 days left on the warranty and yesterday morning I got a notificaiton of Current pending sector = 24. After doing some research, it seems that this could be a warning of pending failure. I did an extended SMART test and it completed without failure last night. I have a spare WD 8TB white label that I could swap in, so I'm considering RMAing the drive, but I guess it's a lottery then as I will likely get a refurb drive back again. My thinking is to swap it, then do multiple preclears on the replacement to shake out any issues, but I guess I want to know how much of a concern Current pending sector count is.

    Dynamix - V6 Plugins

    I had an issue with my system fans running constantly and I have tracked it down to an unassiged SSD drive running hot (45 deg). See here: While thats not a concern itself, I cannot exclude this drive from the Auto Fan Control settings. It seems to only show the Array and cache drives. Is there a way aorund this, maybe manually adding it to a config file?

    SSDs running hot

    OK - I think I've figured it out. AFC seems ot monitor unassigned drive temps (even if they are not mounted) and it's setting the fan speed based on that. Howeever, there doesn't seem ot be a way to exclude an unassigned drive from monitoring. I'll powerdown later and disconnect the drive until I decide about adding it to the cache pool.

    SSDs running hot

    I'm using Auto Fan control plugin and the SSD is excluded in the settings. The log file just showed this: Feb 27 12:39:33 Tower autofan: Highest disk temp is 40C, adjusting fan speed from: FULL (100% @ 1577rpm) to: 175 (68% @ 1290rpm) But all Array drives were spun down and the SSD is 45deg. There are 3 unassigned drives, but none of them are mounted and none are showing any temp in the UI.

    SSDs running hot

    Oh, totally - I'm not worried about the health of the SSD. The problem is that it causes my fan to spin up and ruins my concentration. I need my server to run silently, or as close to silent as possible. Currently the system is idle and SSD temp is 43deg, system temp is 37deg and fan is 78%. With the old SSD the fan was 0% at idle.

    SSDs running hot

    Up until recently I had my server running as a very low power, low hear setup. It' sin my office so neeed to be silent, or as close to silent as possible. It was running with WD Reda for data and a SanDisk Ultra II SSD 480 GB as a cache drive. Drive temps stayed below 35 degrees and all was well. The system fan might just about spin up if there were a few Plex streams running, but that would be rare during the day. I recently moved it to a rackmounted case and I picked up a couple of Crucial 480GB BX300 SSD's to run in RAID0. The problem is that since I swapped the Kingston for one of the Crucials, the SSD temp at idle is over 40 degrees and spikes to over 50 degrees under load, which causes the fan to run pretty much all the time. Is there a reasonbly priced SSD that can run at cooler temps, or do most SSDs run hotter than before?

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Transmission

    OK, I'm all set to give up on this and go back to drinking beer. I tried settign it back to the Dropbox folder and no luck. I tried changing the watch folder in setting.json, but it gets overwritten on startup. Grrrr.

    Weird because I was using it with Dropbox and it worked flawlessly. I’ll take a look at my paths this morning and see if I can figure it out.

    Ok, that’s pointing to /mnt/user/appdata/resilio-sync/sync/Transmission/ and I've has a few beers, so am in no position to start making changes. Will check it in the morning. Thanks man.

    It’s on the cache drive: /mnt/cache/appdata/transmission/torrents

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Transmission

    I used to use Docker to manage my watch folder, but with the recent unplesantness I made the switch to the resilio-sync docker. It works great, except Transmission doesn't see any changes until I restart the docker. Sync does add the files to the watch folder so the problem is somehow with Transmission, but I've no idea what it could be. Any ideas?

    [Support] ken-ji - Dropbox

    Thanks for all your hard work ken-ji. It was a great Docker while it lasted. And thanks to MyKroFt too. Loosk liek Resilio-sync will work as a replacement for me.

    I'm assuming it's related to the version of Docker you have on your PC (as opposed to unRAID)
