  1. Version 6.7.0. Trial I have Pre-Cleared all drives, started the array, allowed Parity to run. I have the following error on all my drives but the Parity drive, "Unmountable: Unsupported partition layout". These are all brand new drives. My intentions with the array is to use it exclusively for my Plex Media Server. Any help you can give me or point me to solution, will be appreciated. Thank you. tower-diagnostics-20190612-0823.zip
  2. Sorry for my lack of knowledge but if I’m configured with a 6TB Parity and three 4TB data drives and I experience a drive failure, UnRaid can not reproduce the data on a new 4TB? If one to one drive backups are the only way to accomplish this why would anyone use Raid or any of that type of program. Wouldn’t you just use a direct back up program on each disc. I get that there is no substitute for external back ups of critical data (not replaceable), I’m just looking for a stop gap against drive failure and the ability to rebuild that drive without ripping all my Blu-ray’s again. I keep hard copies of all the family photos etc. on disc and cloud as well as on my Plex. Now I’m really confused about what kind of rebuilding of a dead hard drive any of these programs provide.
  3. I have a fairly extensive Plex system which I have been running just piggy backed to a Desktop. I am looking at UnRaid as a way of protecting that data. I have a Desktop that I will dedicate to be my UnRaid Server. This box has a new 850 watt Power Supply, plenty of Sata 3 plugs, and a Intel Quad Core processor with 4GB ram. I have purchased 6TB drive for my Parity drive and three 4TB drives for data storage. My desktop currently is running Windows 10 Pro on a 250GB SSD. I have several questions about UnRaid. Will UnRaid work as a stand alone OS or do I have to have Windows running also. I’d like to use the 250GB SSD as the cache drive but Windows eats up a lot of the available space. I have one 4TB drive now already with data on it from Plex, do I have to remove all that data, build the array, then copy it back, or can I just plug the drive in with the data intact? I assume the Parity drive needs to be empty? Just to clarify my understanding, I can add more 4TB drives as needed without adding another Parity drive? Thank you for the assistance.
