  1. Any suggestions in where to start / fault find very welcome as have no issues putting in the leg work! Thanks
  2. Hi, So I have Windows 10 installed on a NVMe drive, and passed through a Windows 10 VM as per SpaceInvadorOne's tutorial. I also have a 2nd NVMe Drive (as my first wasnt big enough), and that I use to install games, and to download any files (also passed through to the VM). My problem is quite an annoying one, that if I ever download a file, or move a file to the array then the entire VM slows right down and becomes jittery/non responsive. 2 scenarios: 1. Downloading a file from the internet to NVMe Drive 2... causes the VM to slow 2. Moving a file from NVMe 2 to The Array (via Seperate SSD Cache)... causes the VM to slow I have been living with it for the best part of a year.. but want to optimise the server utilising Cache pools etc, using the bigger NVMe for the Windows VM etc, but want to figure this one out first as I really am clueless to how I could potentially fix it. Appreciate its a guessing game, but would appreciate any ideas for me to go and see if they can resolve the issue.
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. 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!
  7. 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!

  9. 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?
  10. 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
  11. 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 potentially causing it.. Edit: Also notice jittering in the VM when downloading a file at full speed since getting FTTP broadband which is downloading > 70MB / s... (But not obviously impacting CPU usage in Unraid) Any suggestions?
  12. 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 nothing at all. Anything else I can do to validate this new drive?
  13. 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 😂
  14. 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..

  15. 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?
  16. Cheers, thanks less thing giving me a headache!
  17. 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!
  18. The only USB passthrough I have is on an external (pcie) USB card and in both scenarios it's has the same ID (1987:5012). The Unraid USB is plugged in on the back panel.
  19. See attached diagnostic file with the new HBA removed
  20. So on the Web GUI the VM and Docker tabs are not visible and when I go to settings to enable VMs it says : Warning: parse_ini_file(/boot/config/domain.cfg): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.vm.manager/include/libvirt_helpers.php on line 466 Strange thing is the VM actually booted this time to screen (GPU pass through)... Also, the Unraid USB is visible on Windows File Manager where as on a normal working boot it's not..
  21. Hi Squid, IOMMU grouping and IDs identical on both with exception with the additional card has 2 additional lines.. one for SAS controller, the other and additional PCI bridge (both in their own individual groups). One other thing I have noticed with the new card added I get an error that the UPS cannot be detected (via USB). Without it it's detected fine.. Could it be interfering with the USB?
  22. Hi, So I bought a 2nd Dell HBA to expand the storage capacity (as using a new case now). I stuck with the same model that I have already which appreciate need to apply a tape mod to work with my motherboard but that's fine. On adding the 2nd card have has some strange problems.. When adding it something strange happens... When I boot Unraid all seems to work fine but will not launch the Windows VM automatically. Logging into the WebGUI the format theme is different than what I had set. All the drives appear fine however VMs, Dockers etc are not available and when trying to setup have error messages. Shutdown, remove the card..all works fine again (minus the new drives not being available). Any ideas?
  23. Thanks Johnnie. So using the code btrfs restore -v /dev/sdX1 /mnt/disk2/restore I was able to retrieve app data and system info from the 2nd disk "sdb" (I guess the one I was originally trying was not the original cache...). Using Krusader I have moved the data back to "appdata" and restarted. I guess I knew it wasnt going to magically bring anything back, so reinstalled plex via Docker as a test. It seems to pick up my profile i.e the users I have, but when logging in it says "Media is currently unavailable" on all the file types. I am guessing I have somehow broken the links? Any ideas? TBH Plex is the only one I am interested in saving as the rest will not take allot of setting up from scratch, where as Plex will be a pain in the @ss...
  24. Thanks , Doesnt seem to be working for me, but probably doing it wrong.. just to check. Should I attempt this with the drives back in the Cache Pool, or in Unassigned Devices? Also replacing the "x", if I have 2 drives Cache (sdf), and Cache 2 (sdb), should I be typing "sdf1" in a single command or "sdfsdb1". Tried combinations (including cache1) and nothing seemed to progress for me. Thanks D
