  1. No didn't try that. So is it as simple to make a new bootable drive and copy the config folder from the old drive to the new one?
  2. Thanks for the reply. So tried performing a chkdsk and won't allow me as it claims to be write protected... I actually have a replacement USB drive following SpaceinvaderOne's review on different drives but could never backup the USB so never swapped it.. Anything else I can try?
  3. Hey, So yesterday got a read/write error flagging in the system, and after some searching it seems it would be good to replace the flash drive. When trying to initiate the "Flash Backup" action, it just hangs on 'Please wait... creating Flash backup zip file (this may take several minutes)' I disabled the Windows VM it was running, cancelled the Parity Scan, and seems to be plenty of RAM free, so no idea why it just hangs. Any suggestions? media-diagnostics-20201116-0931.zip
  4. I recently have been having performance issues high utilisation of 3 Cores & 3 Threads dedicated to unraid, as well as a huge slowdown in the VM when moving files from my Windows VM to the array.. A few days ago received a "Out of Memory Error" from Fix Common Problems, so restarted the server yesterday, and now getting them again. Not sure if both issues are linked, but certainly the later seems to be something its picking up on. Attached diagnostics, and any help would be greatly appreciated! media-diagnostics-20200802-0750.zip
  5. Cool. Cheers Johnnie, helps with the pain of chucking a 6TB that at least has has a 2nd opinion before it is in the bin. Thanks allot!

  7. Unable to download any smart history on this drive, but can do the others fine. Not sure if it's because it's now in unassigned devices?
  8. I have a 6TB drive I recently removed from my array as it had some CRC errors and anytime I tried to run a SMART test it would not complete and say "fatal or unknown error". That being said I have discovered the CRC errors where due to a power cable extender and it looks like the drive is going to successfully complete a 2nd preclear cycle. I am a bit conflicted as to what to do as the drive appears ok apart from the fact it refuses to complete any SMART tests (short or extended). Any insights welcome. D
  9. Having some strange problems recently with moving files to my Array from the Windows VM. My system has 32GB of RAM, a Ryzen 2700X CPU, etc. The windows VM is installed on its on NVME drive, and transferring files is to the Cache drives on the server (2 SSD's in RAID) When moving a file to the array (via Network Map share), it will virtually max the 3 cores & 3 threads on the Unraid Server, and the Windows VM will actually become glitchy as if its struggling for speed. This is a new problem for me, and scratching my head as to what could be potential
  10. So I have a Disk (Disk 2), which has had CRC Errors, and wasnt so concerned as put it down to a bad power connection in my previous PC, however it will not complete a SMART test (self aborts). Because of this I have added some additional drives, and currently completing a "Unbalance" to move everything off Disk 2, and will Shrink the Array (as I dont have a replacement disk big enough to do a proper swap). New smaller disks installed, and one of them (Disk 10) is flagging on Fix Common Problems as having Read Errors, however running extended smart tests etc, shows nothi
  11. With mine it boots fine now (following the above), just cannot pass any drive through by doing it which defeats the purpose of doing it in the first place 😂
  12. Right in that case I am lost. I have the same scenario (dual booting from a passed through NVME). I can get it to boot now when adding a 2nd drive, however the drive isn't visible on Windows VM / Disk Manager... Baffled.. Any ideas? <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <domain type='kvm' id='3'> <name>Windows 10</name> <uuid>xxxxx</uuid> <metadata> <vmtemplate xmlns="unraid" name="Windows 10" icon="windows.png" os="windows10"/> </metadata> <memory
  13. Reference the above..I am trying to achieve the same thing passing through 2 unassigned drives to a Windows VM without breaking the boot from NVME. In trying to replicate the above the hostdev3 line seems to prevent me from doing it. What's the purpose of the alias name component?
  14. Cheers, thanks allot..one less thing giving me a headache!
  15. Yes your right..the VM is breaking something.. disabled the VM shut down, added the new card and it all starts and works fine (minus VM). I will just make a new VM from scratch and work from there. Thanks, has narrowed it down!
