    Unraid OS version 6.6.3 available

    You don't have at least one of the other browsers installed? If that is the condition, it surprises me a bit. I had thought most people were moving away from IE. I just googled and IE is only being provided with security updates at this point. So basically it is a end-of-life product.

    Unraid OS version 6.6.3 available

    This is what my screen looks like in Chrome and Firefox. I have just tried it with Firefox, Chrome and IE (ver 11.0.9600.19129). I am seeing the same thing as you with IE. Don't know what the problem is with IE. Perhaps @bonienl could jump in at this point. EDIT: Both Firefox and Chrome work fine. IE has problems with any boxes or icons in the main tabs. Can switch between the main tabs but nothing works inside the tabs.

    Unraid OS version 6.6.3 available

    Something is wrong with your screen capture (At least with what is being displayed)! I would close Unraid instances in your browser and try try clearing your browser cache. Even another reboot if that does not clean things up...

    APC SmartUPS Setup

    I observed (in your settings capture) that the version of apcupsd is well over two years old. I just checked and that is the most recent version available! (I suspect that development has ceased...) You might want to try the NUT plugin (available through the Apps plugin) and/or generate a thread in the Staple Release section of Bug Reports sub-forum stating that apparently the newer APC models are having issues with this old apcupsd software. If NUT works, you might suggest that it be used instead...

    Unraid OS version 6.6.3 available

    Well, you want one of us to go through all of the updates and pick out the ones that are important to you? Come on, give us a break. Everything in these updates is important to the various different users of Unraid for different reasons! Some are security updates. Some are updates to Samba, some address hardware issues, driver issues, incompatibilities, and some are new drivers for the latest hardware. It is easy enough to roll back if you find some issue or you can request assistance to solving the problem. But understand that waiting until some future version in the distance future may give you a lot of upgrade problems because of the small adjustments and tweaks that were detailed out as each update came out. You will have to make your own decision about about when to move up to a new version but I can assure you that keeping in the current major release version will give you the fewest problems over the long haul! (Plus, unlike other software, all updates are FREE!!!)
  6. You are not alone. A lot of us have done the same thing. Bet it won't happen to you again! 😉
  7. Be careful. you seem to mixing bits (b) and Bytes (B) you have a 1000Mb switch, NOT a 1000MB switch. Make sure that you are not getting transfer speeds of 100MB per second (most file managers give the transfer speed in MB/s) which is approximately the raw transfer rate of a 1000Mb/s Ethernet connection. You also have to allow for file management overhead to create the file name and allocate space on the drive. Big files (>5GB) transfer at significant higher speeds than large numbers of smaller (~1KB) files.
  8. Disclosure: I do not run Windows 10 It is not completely clear as to what you are trying to do. Can we assume that you are trying to backup (data or image?) from your win10 computer directly to a share on your Unraid server? If that is the case, I would further assume that you are seeing an error message from Windows. From the problems which I have had with Win7 imaging of the OS, I would suspect that the Win10 is actually having permission problems. I know that with Win7, one can have all kinds of problems with permissions when you are using the backup/restore utility or doing any type of file operations on the files it creates. Try making the backup to another device like a USB drive and work with those files. If that works, you could then try to map an Unraid share as a drive and do the operation on the mapped drive and see if you get the same result.

    [Support] binhex - Krusader

    If you are talking about the root account, the owner of that account is root. The account is the same one that you use to log into the GUI in your web browser and at the login prompt on either a console or ssh session. So the password will be the same as you use when you do those logins.

    Cleaning up my installation

    Make sure that you have updated all plugins to the latest version. Fix Common Problems is one that had an issue.
  11. You might want to take a look at this: https://www.backblaze.com/blog/open-source-data-storage-server/ By the way, I found this by googling "backblaze server design" and this was one of many hits...
  12. Is this SSD connected to the MB SATA port or to a added SATA expansion card? I seem to remember that a few SATA cards don't support the TRIM operation which is necessary to prolong SSD life and performance.
  13. What you have not defined for us is 'What data is going to be on two servers as opposed the data that is on one server?". If one server is to a backup to the other server (even partially), having a single server to where one part is a 'backup' for another part is not a true "Backup". There are a lot of points of failure that are not related to the data disks that can cause data loss! Since you already have (or are planning) on dual parity, you might want to read through this thread which contains a discussion of other risks to data. https://forums.unraid.net/topic/50504-dual-or-single-parity-its-your-choice/ Remember the individual servers are in data farms that are part of a very large data array in which parts of it are even scattered over a large geographical area. Just because they have 90 drives (or whatever number) does not necessary mean that it a desirable choice for you. Those 90 drives are very small percentage of the total numbers of drives involved in a much bigger configuration!

    Stuck on starting array

    You can not change the formatting on the disk by changing file system from one format to another. It is a every complex process if you do NOT want to lose data!!! You need to read this Thread for what is involved: https://forums.unraid.net/topic/54769-format-xfs-on-replacement-drive-convert-from-rfs-to-xfs/ In the mean time, relax and don't do anything more. There are some real Gurus that should be able to get that disk back online without data loss (unless you format it!).
  15. Try toggling the 'Help' menu bar setting while using Opera...
