I love the variety of tasks Unraid can accomplish. It really is a do it all kind of software!



I would love to see more youtube tutorial videos for odd things like MineOS or Rust servers. I've dug around a bit there isn't much documentation for new users regarding that sort of info. It's possible I just didn't look in the right place though! I'm about halfway through my trial currently and so far liking it, a bit complex, but with enough googling anything is possible.

1. The one thing I like most about Unraid is the UI, as a beginner with Unraid it was extremely easy for me to get started and now that I have used it for a few months I really enjoy how simple it is to do most things such as build VM's and Docker containers. The most useful thing I have found so far is the community though, they help out a ton.


2. One thing I would like to see added to the OS in 2020 is the ability to set up Snapshots so if say a picture was accidentally deleted on a share It would be easily recoverable, also snapshots for VM's and Docker containers, but it would also be nice to have native ZFS

I love the Community that Lime-Tech has fostered around UnRaid.


I'm hoping to see Multiple Cache Pools as an option.  I would love to have one Cache Pool used for File Transfers while another Cache Pool can be used for Docker/App Data/VM Disks/etc.

I like the home-user-friendly array approach.
It's definitely way more effective to repurpose old hdds, which vary often in size.
I really like the community supporting this project.

I think some kind of notification service would be nice. (via email, Signal, Telegram, etc.)
To receive a message from the server itself is way more convenient than regularly checking the servers website.

Last time I checked there is Settings - Notification Settings for that...

Been using Unraid for a long time and what I like most is it's versatility.  When I first started, it was basically just used for storage.  But now you can use it for so much more with dockers and VMs.


One thing that would be nice is a native backup solution.  Whether it be off site, or to another server.

I’ve been using unraid now for almost 7-8 months. 

I like how you can take common pc components and make it into a powerful NAS. 


I would like snapshotting of docker containers and vms. This way we can revert if anything breaks.
