  1. I'm having an issue recently with a drive where each time my unraid PC is started I get a bunch of read errors just related to that particular drive. The drive is never disabled in unraid after the read failures, and I can read data from it fine. The affected disk is #4 - sdf. I'm using a supermicro SAS controller, and have switched the location of the drive, but it still occurs regardless. SMART and diagnostics attached. I'm thinking I should just replace the drive, but just wanted to double check here first.
  2. Thank you. Appreciate the help. I'll be more careful next time.
  3. Actually when I hover over the drive it says - device missing / disabled, contents emulated. Great. Can I now stop the array, add that drive in, and let it rebuild it from parity?
  4. I'm not seeing that it says anywhere that it's being emulated, but I can browse the data on that drive as if it's there, so it looks like it is being emulated?
  5. In this case, I'm pretty sure my parity drive should still be all good. If this drive isn't recoverable, can I attempt to rebuild the drive from parity?
  6. When I press the check button nothing happens, looks like the data in the drive may no longer be viable...
  7. Have set to XFS, now I have that option, so will proceed with the repair. Cheers
  8. The two 8TB drives under unassigned are the new ones.
  9. Does me setting the file system type of that unmountable drive to XFS actually attempt to reformat the drive? If not, could i just set the file system as XFS on the unmountable drive, then try and recover the drive through your previous link? Or do I need to do it via command line? Thanks
  10. The disks have not been added to the pool. They are just unassigned devices. They haven't been precleared or formatted. When I did a new config, I chose all existing drives that were previously in the pool, no more, no less.
  11. Yep it's in maintenance mode, I think it may be because the file system is set to auto. Can I stop the array, set the drive to XFS, then try a repair?
  12. Thanks. I don't have the option to 'check file system status'. I can see it on other drives that are in my array, but not the drive that I need to try it on.
  13. I received a couple of new drives that I was planning on putting into my system. In my excitement I thought I had stopped the array, but I hadn't, and I added the drives. I also removed one other drive, then put it back in. None of the drives were spinning, the entire array was idle. Then I had some issues with a single read error on one of the drives, I assume this was the existing drive that I removed and put back in. unRAID wanted me to do a full parity check, but I didn't want to do that, and decided to shut the array down and make a new config with all the existing settings. I thought that this would bring the array back to fully operational. I was wrong. It looks like the file system on that drive has been wiped. It's not XFS like my other drives, it says 'auto'. The data should still be on there though (this is a media server, nothing super important is stored). I'm guessing that unRAID is currenlty emulating the data in it, though I can't see a message saying that anywhere. All I want to do is bring this drive back online and not lose any data if possible. If a parity rebuild is required then so be it. Should I format the disk like unRAID is wanting me to do, or can I restore the file system that was on it and carry on using it? I've attached my diagnostics.
  14. I'm currently using a 1TB Sata SSD on my unRAID server which stores my dockers and virtual machines, it also is where my torrents download to. The file system is btrfs. I've purchased a 1TB NVME SSD that I plan to move my dockers and virtual machines to, and the existing 1TB Sata SSD will be only used for torrent downloads/seeding. My questions are: 1) What is the best way to replace the Sata drive with the NVME drive? There are a lot of small Plex thumbnail files that I assume will take a long time to transfer over. 2) What file system should I be using for this NVME drive? I have read about issues with btrfs and excess writes. I don't want to wear out my NVME drive prematurely. Should I switch to xfs? I want trim enabled on the NVME.
  15. Hi, is the AX860i supported? I'm looking at purchasing it. I don't know how to integrate 'cpsumoncli' with this plugin (if that's what I need to do)? Thanks
