  1. Very true. Recent developments on rclone-beta have greatly improved rclone. It is much quicker and more efficient. Hope to see Unraid rclone-beta see an update soon
  2. A bunch of people here seemed to be complaining about rclone and google photos support.........Well, its supported in latest version. Dunno if/when Unraid rclone beta plugin will pick it all up. type rclone --version to figure out which version you're on.
  3. Just typo this into Terminal on unraid to find the location of the rclone.conf file: rclone config file
  4. You're welcome and don't worry.....your problem is WAYYY too common. Almost every other post is about something similar to this. Everyone seems to want to use rclone that way and it just doesn't work like that.
  5. So you are doing two things wrong: You mounted an rclone remote and want to write to that mount. I'll just link you to my post dated just over a week ago for ya. Don't write to rclone mounts...instead write to the rclone remote. You are using rclone copy/sync as you should for writing into your cloud storage location....BUT.....the location you gave is where you mounted your rclone cloud storage. Instead, use your remote for the destination. For example in `rclone config` if you setup your rclone remote with the name "google_drive"....Then this would be a simple sync command: rclone sync /mnt/user/Data/Media/Bilder google_drive:Media/Bilder/ -vP -v for Verbose logs.....so you can see wtf is going on -P just to show live progress..... If you don't like doing it this way...the alternative is to use GDFS (Google FileStream).....it is more reliable for writing directly to a local filesystem location where a cloud storage is mounted onto. rclone documentation REALLY needs to make this point clear to people.....because everyone is making this mistake. Everyone just wants to mount their cloud storage, then start writing to it easily....It sort of works...but it is just NOT reliable and you'll just get a crap experience.
  6. This is the TBW for my SSD cache drive. Is this OKAY? Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB 18 months Usage Holds all Appdata permanently Holds incoming data until 80% capacity...then mover started sudo /usr/sbin/smartctl -A /dev/sdb | awk '$0~/LBAs/{ printf "TBW %.1f\n", $10 * 512 / 1024^4 }' TBW 47.7
  7. Figured it out. Thanks! Your tip led me in the right direction
  8. Connecting a bootable USB drive to KVM or VirtualBox virtual machine on Linux I found this article which outlines how to do it using KVM or VirtualBox....and I know Unraid VM environment is KVM BUT.... There is a step here I do not know how to do using the Unraid VM template.....It asks to point the OS Install path directly to the USB Drive path instead of an ISO file. In Unraid....it ONLY appears allow me to choose an ISO file for this field. Any ideas?
  9. I have an external SSD USB Drive which I've already setup as a portable bootable live linux distro (Slackware-Based Porteus). http://www.porteus.org/ How can I create a VM in unraid which runs off of this external SSD USB Drive? Basically, this will serve as my Personal Portable OS.......But I would also like to just plug it into my Unraid home server box and fire it up as in a VM...this way I can work with it at home also. Also would be nice to have a way to test Live Boot USB Drives.
  10. The general wisdom is that rclone mounts are NOT reliable for writes and should only be used for reads. That is not to say that ALL writes to an rclone mount will fail....I'm just saying you will have an inconsistent write experience. Sometimes it will work but more often than not, it will not work. If you need to put something onto cloud storage, use rclone copy/sync commands OR use Google Drive File stream aka GDFS (for Google Drive storage only of course).
  11. Ya.....You're on the right track.....Just go down the rabbit hole with that and experiment. I glanced at it but I'm not much of a coder. Post up if you figure out an easy way to fire a command if rclone success/fail.
  12. Mmmm... There is no option in rclone for anything like that.... But you can use an rclone flag to log output to a file.... And probably figure out a bash script to notify via webhook whatever you want when your rclone command finishes with a specific EXIT signal/code. And then just tail the last couple lines of the log file along with your webhook so you can quickly see if rclone sync succeeded or not. Here's just an example of something I quickly pulled out from github. I modified it slightly to make it easier. source #!/bin/bash ####################### #INPUT VARIABLES ####################### $source= $destination= $maxtransfer= $rcloneflags= $logfile= ####################### #INPUT VARIABLES ####################### rclone sync $source $destination\ --drive-server-side-across-configs\ --max-transfer $maxtransfer\ --fast-list --size-only -vP --stats 5s\ --tpslimit 4 --tpslimit-burst 20 --max-backlog 1000000\ --stats-file-name-length 0 $rcloneflags\ --log-file="$logfile"\ echo;echo FINISHED sync from $source to $destination;echo #Sends a Notification to my phone via Join App for Android wget -q "https://joinjoaomgcd.appspot.com/_ah/api/messaging/v1/sendPush?deviceNames=Phone&text=rclone_sync_complete&apikey=my_secret_key" > /dev/null
  13. Copied the script to a share on my array and ran it. It worked......although it writes the backup zip file to the / directory automatically. I can work with that. Thanks!
  14. I would like to use the native "Flash Backup" script in a cronjob. Where is it located? This is the script which is called when you go to Main tab, click on Flash....there is a button called "Flash Backup". It downloads a nice zip file of your flash drive onto the client browser. This script is different then the one CA Backup plugin uses.....I'm looking specifically for the script or command which is called when you click the "Flash Backup" button on Unraid GUI. Also, doing a simple tarball of the Boot directory is no good either.....I've read in numerous posts like this which pretty much describe why. The "Flash Backup" script Unraid GUI uses is what I'm after. Thanks
