airy52 Posted November 12, 2021 Share Posted November 12, 2021 (edited) Like many of you, I use my unraid server for plex and media downloading/management. Recently I discovered that hardlinks weren't working properly and found out it was because I was downloading to a different folder mapping than the storage mapping. I set everything to the same /Media path and its working now, but I have a LOT of old data that is now duplicated in the downloads folder(/Media/Sonarr/Downloads) and in the place that Sonarr then organized it after it finished(/Media/TV and /Media/Anime). I've read about some tools like Czkawka(https://github.com/qarmin/czkawka) and DupeGuru(https://github.com/arsenetar/dupeguru) that will help me find the duplicate files, hardlink(or symlink? softlink?) them, and remove the duplicate. I want to do this but I only have enough linux knowledge to do basics or follow instructions. My main concerns are that some files in the downloads folder might be a duplicate, but not be on the same drive anymore (I have 2 drives + 1 parity + cache), and I think that will be an issue? Also I'm not familiar with the inner workings of unraid and how it presents multiple drives as one folder in /mnt/user/, and I don't want to break it running something not intended for this configuration on it. So my question, can any of you help me figure out how to do this properly with any of these(or other) tools? Edited November 19, 2021 by airy52 solved 1 Quote Link to comment
