  1. Did you make a backup of your flash drive? No unfortunately I did not. Did you have single or dual parity? No parity drives yet, I was going to add a parity later. But I do have backups elsewhere anyhow. Did you have a cache drive? Yes I have one cache drive Did you make a printout or screen capture of the drive assignment for the drives in the array? Yes I do!
  2. My new sandisk flash drive is totally dead. So I am wondering what is the best action for me now going forward? I am going to go to the retailer and swap it over for a new one shortly I was still under a trial period, if I make a new unRaid flash drive will I then lose all my data on my drives?
  3. Excellent. Can confirm all is working properly now! Thank you very much @bonienl 👌 MARKED AS SOLVED
  4. I do not know either, but it does. It doesn't cripple it on any other device just my unRaid server. Anyway. Following @bonienl's recommendation (hopefully this was what he was talking about, let me know mate ) to change the unRaid DNS to 1.1.1.1 - 1.0.0.1 in the section below does seem to have fixed this issue. PiHole is now blocking ads across the network (as it did before) but only this time PLEX and any internet bandwidth required for unRaid is at full speed from what I can see. PLEX thumbnails/icons are loading instantaneous across all devices, Community Apps loads instantly too. I will tinker with it more tonight and see how it performs and if all is okay, I will mark this as [SOLVED] tomorrow.
  5. Hmm where would I change this? Are you talking about this section as shown here? That 192.168.1.99 is the PiHole DNS Would I change it to this?
  6. Hi guys I got an issue I am hoping someone can help me with. I followed SpaceInvaders tutorial and all went smoothly and Pi Hole is setup on my unRaid Server. Now my issue lies with Plex. For some reason when Pi Hole is on all the thumbnails (such as cast thumbnails etc) in Plex take FOREVER to load. Now when I disable Pi Hole completely then everything loads up very quickly. I originally thought it may have been a blacklist that was causing an issue so I removed everything and done a fresh install of Pi Hole (with the default lists) and the images still take forever to load. Checking in Network and nothing seems to be blocked from Pi Hole regarding PLEX. It just seems like traffic speed is crippled? I am using 1.1.1.1 - 1.0.0.1 as my DNS in Pi Hole. Everything else on my network is working and loading fast as usual, it is only PLEX that is the issue. Here is a video demonstration of what is going on. The first part of the video is with the Pi Hole DNS completely off my Router (Pi Hole is off then) as you can see everything loads instantaneously. Now the second half I add my Pi Holes's DNS into my Router, reboot etc, and look at how slow all the images are loading. This happens on PLEX on every device on the network. It is like the speeds are crippled into the Kbps. When the Pi Hole DNS is removed and I check my bandwidth when images are loaded it ranges between 6Mbps-40Mbps. I also want add something that I think is of some importance here: When PIHOLE is on, it cripples the speed of my entire unRaid server. Even clicking on Apps, the Community apps page takes forever to load or doesn't load at all. 1985793201_PLEXSLOWwithPiHoleDemonstration.mp4.21c4a1ff8e1f7cd940c5569a463c5940.mp4

Everything else on my network is working and loading fast as usual, it is only PLEX that is the issue. Further info: After more tinkering it seems like the PI HOLE DNS that I put on my router is the issue. As soon as I remove this everything works as it should and thumbnails and cast pictures are downloaded and shown instantly. https://postimg.cc/TKXTPxGD As seen in the image my PI HOLE DNS is 192.168.1.3 if Pi hole is on and it’s DNS is entered in my ASUS Router I have the issue. If I delete the DNS from my ASUS router, reboot it everything then works. But in turn Pi Hole breaks as the DNS for Pi Hole is deleted from my router. Any ideas? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  10. I got an issue after updating to the latest binhex-plexpass. NO metadata is no longer downloading and on top of this if I find a title to FIX the listing, no Agents are showing so something is broken here. It was working before the latest update.
  11. I need some help to get this running. I followed spaceinvaders video but no dice. I have my own VPN that I run on my Router. Even if I disable the VPN in the options for binhex-delugevpn it still doesn't work. Even if I get the normal version of deluge with no VPN, the download will start then it drops down to 0 within 5 seconds. Any ideas? i think it might be this that could be preventing the downloads from starting properly? (see image) *EDIT Issue fixed. I got my paths wrong in Deluge settings.
  12. Quick one for you guru's so I'll try and explain it as simple as I can for everyone without sounding too confusing (which i'm sure it will read out that way anyway) 😂 I only have a 10TB drive installed no Parity disk yet I will have backups in place in the meantime anyway, (a parity disk will be added in a couple of weeks when i purchase another two 10TB drives) my setup of unRaid will be quite simple. It is only going to be used for PLEX and NZB's. Now with only having one disk right now I am thinking if I name the share for example Plex Media 1 fill it with all of my current files that will consist of a Movies folder and a TV Shows folder, then once that is full and I add a new 10TB drive then name that one Plex Media 2 would this be best? I just want to keep things as simple and organised as possible. I guess I am used to having a similar system on Windows since probably Win95 so I am familiar with it so I know what hard drive consists of what files instead of having everything spread out all over the place. Or is there another simpler way to do it? As I said my use will be very simple so I want everything to be organised in the same.
  13. Good little insight Trurl and XXL. As I won't have a parity disk setup straight off the bat i thought I would just let the entire cycle run. As majority of my media data will be on this disk that is currently going through the Pre-Clear cycle. I will have the files backed up elsewhere regardless, so I may as well take the precautions to save headaches down the line. Step 1 of 5 - Pre-read verification: [17:32:07 @ 158 MB/s] SUCCESS Step 2 of 5 - Zeroing in progress: (22% Done) Time elapsed: 3:03:30 | Write speed: 203 MB/s | Average speed: 203 MB/s This is my progress thus far. Taken a while as you can see lol Is it good practice to do the same for a Parity Drive? Or that one doesn't really matter as nothing is really written to it? Also, it sounds like the HDD is getting a real work out during the Zeroing phase. Is this normal? I assume it is??
  14. So it looks like there is no need to really pre-clear anymore. Should have read this before I started a pre-clear on a brand new 10TB WD RED. Ah well may as well let it finish now lol
  15. Agreed Daniel. This is why I decided to take the pre-clearing route. Once I get another two 10TB drives (I’ll pre-clear those too) I’m guessing I can add another 10TB for data, then add a 10TB after to build parity. Will this be okay?
