wepee Posted April 19, 2020 Share Posted April 19, 2020 (edited) Hi All, I am in the transition of buying unRAID license, but before I do it, I want some advice on the flash drive Currently I have unRAID server installed on a Sandisk Cruzer Edge 8GB USB2.0, loading OS was slow and loading the web page on the plugin tab was slow also. It was an old USB drive, I wanted to upgrade it to the newest one. And hopefully can see some speed improvement. I went ahead and installed unRAID server into a Sandisk Ultra Fit USB3.1 16GB, I am planning to use the flash drive on a USB2.0 port. Unfortunately, I have no success in creating a USB flash drive by using the USB creator software. It always stuck at the final bit: Syncing files system..... However, I was able to install it using the manual method, but did not try to boot yet. As, I wanted to load all the configuration settings from the zip back up file. Questions 1) It seems like there is an issue about the Sandisk Ultra Fit USB3.1 /3.0 flash drive, perhaps not as durable as its older generation USB2.0 drive? or Should I stick back to the original Sandisk Cruzer USB drive? 2) How to restore all the configuration settings from the back up zip file, if I create a bootable drive using the manual way? I found the way to restore the configuration settings from the back up zip file. Just copy the content of the zip file, and then run make_bootable.bat file. Thank you. The youtuber: Spaceinvader One was also using the same USB flash drive: SanDisk Ultra Fit 16GB. Strangely his one was good enough to finish installing. But mine doesn't. I went out and bought a new SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.1 flash drive. Shockingly, the program could not detect the presence of the drive that is already inserted into my PC USB port. While Windows 10 was able to detect it. Edited April 20, 2020 by wepee Quote Link to comment
