Returning to Unraid

Recommended Posts


i have used Unraid from 2017 for a couple of years then I moved to Synology and now moving back to Unraid and have a few questions:

1- I have the USB drive of my Unraid how do I install the last version and reset the configurations I want to set up everything like new

2- Are there any major changes or tutorials I should read before jumping back in.

Thank you

You will need to copy the license .key file from the config folder on flash, then you can just do a new install of the latest version and put that .key file on.

thank you for the quick reply.

The licence file is tied to the GUID of the flash drive for which it is licensed.    There is a process for transferring the licence to a new USB drive (and black-listing the old one), but you will not need to use that if you continue to use the same USB drive.

Except for plugins, all apps in Community Applications are Docker containers.

I am not sure what you mean ?

sorry you are correct plugins or Docker.

I wanted to install rclone and found both which would be a better choice?

In general, if an app is available as both a plugin and a Docker container, go with the Docker container.  The whole idea of a container is that it is isolated from other processes on the host and if there is a problem with the container, it should not affect other processes.
