  1. I ran the xfs_repair under Check Filesystem Status and got this: Phase 1 - find and verify superblock... writing modified primary superblock Primary superblock bad after phase 1! Exiting now. Not sure what that means?
  2. Just to follow up on this, I decided to to get another 4Tb drive and rebuild everything with one as a Parity drive and dropped in an SSD as a chance drive. I've just got all the data back on and started to work through setting everything up again. Woke up this morning, no WiFi, no heating, the breaker had tripped on my boiler cupboard where all the IT kit is. Got everything back on but have just spotted that the 4TB drive that isn't the Parity drive is now claiming to have no file system. I took the array offline, restarted in Maintenance Mode and am running the SMART Tests to see what's going on. The drive appears to be OK, it looks like I could format it and set it back up again, but given it was formatted and full of data, there must be a problem somewhere. I've obviously not had anything like this happen before, so want to make sure I don't do anything that stops the data being rebuilt. So what should I do to get it all back running? Thanks!
  3. Yes Plex, is that the likely culprit then? I set UnBalance off as soon as it was recommended and it's been checking for issues ever since! I'll look at doing a backup and restore instead.....
  4. Thanks, I meant to ask if there was a way to get UnRaid to sort this for me! Currently at 3m files and 25.8Gb!
  5. I started copying the appdata folder to another disc first thing this morning. 5 hours later it's found 2.4m files and is up to 20.4Gb! The disc I'm copying to is the one with the most free space, but only 22Gb, so this looks like it isn't going to work!
  6. Thanks, that all makes sense and I think I understand what is going on. All the Dockers are using UserShares. I don't have any thing that's irreplaceable on there that isn't backed up. It's just media, I keep photos and documents on Google Drive then back that up to the server, so it's just the backups I have 'at risk'. I also backup to a local computer that is in a separate workshop building, so I'm not too worried about losing data. The server is quite old, so my plan is to keep it ticking over for a little bit longer then buy a new one next time I need more capacity.
  7. Actually, I looked a bit further and it looks like all the files are on the drive I want to swap out! Typical! I don't really want to reset everything up if I can help it as I don't really know what I'm dong and it took me ages to get it all working! Can I back everything up so that I can restore it all once I've swapped the disc, or is there stuff that just won't work?
  8. Thanks, that's useful. Do you know what the Docker stuff is then? I've had a quick look and I can't see any folders that were modified recently and all the folders I drilled into are empty. I've not checked everything yet though. I'm wondering if I should unmount one of the discs and see if anything breaks.
  9. Sorry, I know I have this setup wrong, but I'm currently running with no Parity disc or RAID, so the discs aren't backed up anywhere. I'm going to sort that out in time, but that's something for further down the line. I should have added that to my question!
  10. I need more server space, so I'm adding a 4Gb disc. My server has 5 slots for discs, but there's 5 discs in there already, I want to copy content from one of the 500Gb discs to a local machine, swap the disc, then copy the data back. All of my discs contain an app data folder, that relates to dockers - is this just being backed up across all the discs, or are the dockers tied to particular discs? Is there anything stopping me from just moving the data off, swapping the discs and moving it back? What else might I break? Thanks!
