Restore original flash after failed upgrade

Go to solution Solved by Hoopster,

Recommended Posts

Ok I know I can copy the original flash (failed upgrade) to a directory on the PC, I'm assuming the upgrade would not affect configuration files so that I can just copy them back to the flash drive (USB). But which ones? I also have a Connect backup but trying to not have to redo passwords. Yes I must stick with 6.11.5 as 6.12.0 does not work on my server.

@grumpy When you upgrade within the GUI (Tools -->> Update OS) a folder named previous is created on the root of the flash drive.  This contains the files associated with the previous version of Unraid that was installed on the flash drive. After my failed upgrade to 6.12.0 (would not boot at all), I just copied all of the files in the previous folder back to the root of the flash drive (overwriting everything) and I was back to 6.11.5.
