PSA on SanDisk USBs

Recommended Posts

After multiple recent support issues with SanDisk brand USBs, we don't recommend buying SanDisk USBs for Unraid at this point. 


Either due to counterfeit devices being sold or a manufacturing change directly from SanDisk, multiple users have attempted to boot SanDisk USBs and found out that they do not register a unique GUID and therefore, cannot be properly licensed with Unraid. Multiple attempts at contacting SanDisk on this issue have gone nowhere.


For a great rundown on the best USBs for Unraid, @SpaceInvaderOne made an exhaustively researched video on the topic:


(Spoiler) The best 3 flash drives were:

1. Samsung bar plus

2. Kingston DataTraveler SE9 G2

3. Samsung Fit Plus
