  1. I expect the files were moved from cache. Luckily I have now restored from backup so all sorted.
  2. Thank you, didn't think of that. I did move a significant number of files around the other day so maybe something I did then. What might cause the files to corrupt like this? If I am restoring files from online backup but subsequently delete a restored file, will the deleted file replace any previously deleted (possibly corrupt) files in the .recycle.bin or is that something I can set?
  3. I have just moved a deleted folder out of the .recycle.bin folder on a share using Windows 10. But now every one of those files is corrupt and won't open (seems files just padded out with NULLS to get file size). Why would this happen and what can I do about it? I'm concerned that this means all my .recycle.bin files are corrupt across all shares. I suppose I should go and delete all those and start again? Luckily I do also have an online backup (hopefully that hasn't failed also) but that will take forever to re-download all the files ... wishing I had tested restoring before I needed it!
  4. Have you read the Docker FAQ? Thank you for the link. Yes, I have had a look through these although didn't cover my main questions (or I wasn't asking the right questions). I think part of the problem is that version 6.2 has brought in some awesome improvements but these are still very new. I am new too so don't know anything about the background.
  5. Have you read the Docker FAQ? Links to Community Applications are all over the place. In the getting started of the Docker FAQ, Limetech's Official 6.2 Manual, my signature, the All Applications Repositories and Support Threads, along with the thread being stickied itself in the Plugins section. As to the link to the repository, I well understand lsio's reasoning behind not publishing it (and they are not alone) -> it simply makes support easier as then its not their problem getting unRaid to populate the dropdown lists. They would rather (rightfully so IMO) pass everything off to CA and let me deal with the back-end stuff. An analogy would be an app for your Android device telling you to manually install the .apk instead of going to Google Play But, either way, manually adding in repositories is still supported on the current version of unRaid, and I also maintain a stickied thread that has all of the containers within the particular repositories with the repo's link, support threads, etc. All Application Repositories and Support Threads Thank you for the background, I'm a newbie so always learning how things work. I thought it was a requirement to publish repositories in order for it to work - is that something that has changed or was it always that way? I like the way you compared Community Applications to Google Play, now understand how its meant to work - I will attempt to embrace the Community Applications plugin (and the awesome work you put into this).
  6. Thank you for your replies. I understand that its all voluntary and I do appreciate the developers time, sorry if it came across otherwise. Its as much frustration with my own lack of understanding - I'm still getting my head around the interface of Dockers vs unRaid templates etc. I wish I knew more and was able to contribute myself.
  7. I have installed openvpnas using the Community Applications in unRaid 6.2 but it didn't work. As least not until I found out that I needed to add an additional environment variable INTERFACE and set to bond0. Can you please update the unRAID template to include this environment variable? I also note there is no documentation (that I could find) on how to actually install in unRaid. Its really hard when you have to scrawl through pages and pages of the community forum to find anything out.
  8. Can you please add a link to the linuxserver Docker template repository in the first post on this thread? Also a link to Community Applications. I couldn't work out how to add a container. I expect it seems so obvious to many but it's not and there is very little information on how to actually add your containers to unRaid. It has taken me a couple hours to finally figure it out that I need to use Community Applications, although I would rather add your Docker template repository.
  9. Thank you both. I don't know how I missed the big red X! I had tried to locate the files on the usb - useful to know for future.
  10. Can someone please tell me how to delete my docker templates? I have been experimenting and now have heaps of options under [templates-user]. I have searched for answer but can't seem to find one.
  11. Ok, that makes sense. I suppose the xml makes it easier to provide the web interface. I suppose I can just add an unraid xml version to my existing projects ... should be easy enough. Maybe a conversion tool/script from compose to unraid xml?
  12. +1 docker compose This would better support linking of containers, means I dont have to learn another syntax, is transferable to other systems, has more features ... is fully documented. I have been using docker for some time on Ubuntu system and just transitioning to unraid. I have a number of containers using docker compose that I now need to rewrite or find and test unraid community equivalents. I like to build my docker images with minimal dependencies but that doesnt seem possible with unraid system? I also havnt been able to find a definitive guide on writing docker templates for unraid, please advise if there is one that I might have missed. Ideally, documention would be something like that provided for docker compose itself at https://docs.docker.com/compose/compose-file/. So again, why not just support/use docker-compose rather than reinvent ... or am I overlook some key benefit? Please dont take this the wrong way ... intended as constructive feedback. Docker compose is relatively new and maybe wasnt a viable option previously?
  13. Great, thank you. I restarted everything and followed your steps and is now working as expected. Thank you.
  14. I have set up two shares, Scratch and Home. The Home share is a private share only accessible by specified user. The Scratch share is public and should be able to be written to by everyone. This doesn't work. When I first log into Windows 10 I have read/write access to the Scratch share. My problem arises when I create a mapping to the Home share in Windows using my user credentials. This provides read/write access to the Home share but I loose write access to the Scratch share. I think part of the issue is that Windows doesn't let you have different user credentials for shares on the same domain. I suspect the other part may be an issue with unRAID SMB Security Settings. When I select "Public" as the security setting this should allow me to have read/write access to the share (Scratch) in this instance even when I have entered my user credentials. Or is this maybe by design? So basically, can someone please advise how to get read/write access to both my Home share with SMB Security Settings set to "Secure" and my Scratch share with security set to "Public" in Windows 10?
