  1. Back about ten years ago, I decided I had a storage space problem. So I looked around to see what was available. I don't remember what was around at the time but I came across the unRAID product. So you load something on an USB and then boot to it and it then sees all the attached drives. Create shares, add data and you're good. It has data recovery as well in case of drive failure. Sounded pretty much agnostic as far as motherboard hardware was concerned. Interesting concept. And an online community with all kinds of info. Like any IT guy with 20+ years of hardware ex
  2. Ok, something isn't right. I'm not seeing what i should. At this point i have physically removed the drive from the box. In the unRAID system i'm see that Disk 6 as "Not installed" but as far as i can tell the missing data is not being emulated. i have attached a new system diagnostic nas-1-diagnostics-20161021-1904.zip
  3. I was deleting old files in a share i didn't need any more when my Plex gave me an error about not being able to access the rest of a movie i was watching. That was when i discovered that drive 6 in my system was coming up as missing. i rebooted the NAS a couple times with no change. popped the case and reseated all the connections. nope, still broke. unRAID 6.2.1 ASUS H87I-PLUS motherboard Parity Seagate 3 TB 2x WD 2 TB 3x WD 1 TB 1x WD 2 TB (the problem drive)WDC_WD20EARX-00PASB0_WD-WCAZAL821 1x Kingston SSD Cache 250 GB PLEX Docker "Fix Common Problems"
  4. i might give his version a chance. how do i go about keeping the config directory out of RAM? i have a "test" unRAID box i can play around with until i get it right.
  5. I looked around but i can't get a straight answer to my issue. my Plex setup gets reset everytime i reboot the unRAID box. i have to go back and redo all my Plex shares again. I'm running a paid version of unRAID plus, version 5.0.6. I went to the Plex website and got the version for the unRAID, "v0.". The Plex file is in the flash/extra folder on the USB. i have a SSD cache drive In the settings page in the unRAID GUI i have the following: Library directory: /mnt/cache/apps/Plex Temp directory: /mnt/cache/apps/temp in the shares page i ha
  6. in reference to these errors you are getting "Machine Check Errors "MCE Error" i'm getting them as well, "NAS-1 kernel: mce: [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged' I flashed the BIOS to the newest one i could find on the Asus site before i loaded unRAID, i think the version was 2002. next time i reboot i'll make a point of checking that. flashing your BIOS might not help that.
  7. got it from newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812200294 should be here in a few days
  8. Only real difference is that i am running 4 gig of memory. I thought about bumping up the CPU as well but changed my mind. i have a 3 tb parity drive and (4) 1 tb data drives and (1) 640 gig data drive. once things settle down i will yank the 640 and stuff in a 2 tb drive to replace it.
  9. I went ahead last night and upgraded my old 4.7 frankenstein to 5.06 and then moved everything to the new box. The upgrade and the move went just fine. Did a parity check last night and another this morning before i left for work. temps are very reasonable. I'm looking around for some cable ties and velcro to get some of the wiring under control. My data drives are all in the slots but the parity is attached to the bottom plate. not really happy with how i have that positioned and cabled. the unRAID USB is currently attached to the back of the box. looking for a way to mou
  10. All the parts finally showed up yesterday. Somehow I managed to order laptop memory instead of desktop memory. Not sure how I did that. For $25 it's not worth the trouble of returning it. Went to our local Office Max (which is having a going out of business sale) and found 4 gig of memory for a good price. might grab some bigger drives later if the price is right. Now the assembly begins. First impression, is all this stuff gonna fit in this box? The box is really tight inside. You have to think about how you put the parts in it. I got part way through with ass
  11. the frankenstein... the drives are about a month old, (5) 1 tb data and a 2 tb parity the rest of the stuff is at least 3-4 years old the plan is to create something nice for a change
  12. first some background, i was looking for some kind of storage device to hold my stuff back a couple of years ago. looked at appliances like Drobo but they had to many limitations to me and they were too pricey. i saw unRaid and it looked interesting. i'm kinda of pack rat and i had some old pc's laying around so i downloaded the demo version and tried it out. i stuffed some old drives of unknown heritage in a old pc and started playing around. created some folders, worked with permissions, copied files over and generally gave it road test. one day as i was playing with it i realized
  13. no problem, i went ahead and ordered some stuff. i got basically the same setup coming in. i went a little more on the cpu and memory though. i'll go ahead and run it with my extra usb key and some spare drives to break it in then carefully transfer the drives from my old box as they say, some assembly may be required....
  14. i'm really tempted to build one just like it myself. i have an old one running 4.7 and it's time for a hardware and software refresh i saw on other sites where people had mentioned that the power supply in that case was a tight fit. i'll need to watch out for that. anything else i might need to keep an eye on?
