[Solved] Accessing unraid files

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have just setup my unraid server over the weekend. All seemed to be going well - precleared all drives, transferred over 5tb of data to it and have setup parity fine.


Thee problem I have is when I have now tried to add all my media to xbmc. XBMC can find the SMB share that I have setup - Tower/Media - but when it is scanning the content it goes incredibly slowly and then freezes.


I have noticed that there also seems to be an issue accessing the tower files via windows explorer. I can go to network and see Tower. I can then click through to my share media (or any of the disks). Then its ok going to either of the next folders (Movies or TV Shows). But when I try and get into a individual Movie or TV show folder it goes really slowly again. Sometimes it opens the folder ok but then sometimes I get an error message.


Any ideas? Happy to post more specific information if you let me know what you need to know
