  1. Unraid installs to RAM fresh from the archives on flash at each boot and it runs completely in RAM. There is no way to install it to anything else. You can think of the flash as the firmware of an embedded device. Yes Anytime Unraid allows different sized disks in the array. Each disk is an independent filesystem, there is no striping.
  2. Unraid Add Container page is just getting the fields to fill in the docker run command.
  3. Yes. On the other hand, unlike striping in RAID, I/O is only at the speed of the single disk. In fact, writes are somewhat slower due to parity updating concurrently. Caching can help with this since cache can be SSDs and raid. Recycle Bin plugin: https://forums.unraid.net/topic/41044-recycle-bin-vfs-recycle-for-64-and-later-versions/
  4. Unraid is not RAID. Each data disk is an independent filesystem. Redundancy for the array is provided by 1 or 2 parity drives. There is currently no provision for multiple arrays, but in addition to the array you can have multiple disks in the cache pool. And different sized disks can be used in the parity array. See this Overview from the Wiki for a better idea how it all works: https://wiki.unraid.net/UnRAID_6/Overview Each disk (independent filesytem as noted) in the parity array can be encrypted or not.

    Copied to General Support since this doesn't appear to be a bug.
  7. Go to Tools-Diagnostics and attach the complete Diagnostics zip file to your next post.
  8. Go to Tools - Diagnostics and attach the complete diagnostics zip file to your next post.

  10. On mobile now so can't look at Diagnostics. Please wait for advice.
  11. New Config rebuilds parity by default. It is possible to get it to skip the parity rebuild, but in this case you should rebuild parity because when you remove a disk you have invalidated parity. Without the USB drive it shouldn't take as long to rebuild. How big is parity? I usually estimate 2-3 hrs per GB of parity.

    Your appdata, domains, and system share belong on cache.
  13. USB connections are not recommended in the array due to unreliability. Tools - New Config. Keep all drive assignments, then it will let you make changes before starting the array. Unassign the drives you want to remove, then start the array to rebuild parity.
  14. I think he was asking if the new version works without the command.
