circles forever.

Any time the spinner is up for longer than exactly 120 seconds it will never disappear.  However the underlying script that is taking long to finish will complete.

I can't specifically identify what may be filling my syslog, any expert guidance would be appreciated. 

 

Have you had a chance to read this thread?

 

*Something* is updating files on your flash drive repeatedly, causing the My Servers flash backup to back up the changes.

 

You have the rclone plugin installed, that is the likely culprit. Unfortunately, while it is running it updates the /boot/config/plugins/rclone/.rclone.conf on the flash drive continuously.

 

Open a web terminal and run the commands posted earlier in this thread:
  https://forums.unraid.net/topic/112745-stop-useless-backups/#comment-1032807 

that will tell Flash Backup not to backup the .rclone.conf file

 

Then you'll probably want to reboot to clear out your log file.
