Why exFAT on a disk that size?

I use exFAT for compatibility. I use this drive on Mac, Windows, and Unraid. I'm unaware of a better/easier method without installing/maintaining additional software if there is one.

 

Did you catch my edit regarding the drive seeming to be fine? I think attempting to read/write from the disk with the partial plugin damaged the filesystem. (Could still easily/purely be a drive issue though.)

I've updated UD and added a 'Read Only' switch for physical drives so you can mount the drive read only.  This can be helpful if you have an array drive you'd like to mount and look at but don't wan't anything written to the disk that would break parity.

I just installed UD plus in Unraid 6.8.0 and I am a little confused. I my WebUI it looks different than before. I don't see the mount buttons and it just all looks different. I'm trying to get things setup so in Krusader I can copy files from a USB  drive to the RAID, but I can't even seem to find where the disk is mounted as I no longer have a /mnt/disks location. I've probably skipped or looked over something. Any pointers?

You need UD installed.  UD+ is an adder, not a replacement.

Is there an option within UD to keep the drives spinning 100% of the time? I have a few drives that I write to periodically and they spin down after a period of time, and when my application goes to write to it, it gets a write error because the drive takes a bit to spin up.

Since you can't use UD+ without UD, wouldn't it be better to install UD also of you install UD+?

Then thee wouldn't be any need to use time saying that you need UD also.

UD+ is an addon to UD and enables additional UD features.  It is not a virus.  The Nmap package you are referring to is used to scan for NFS servers on your network.  Some people are nervous about Nmap security, so it can be removed by a UD setting.

Fixed.  UD+ won't install unless UD is installed.

Wonderful :(  Update to CA will be required so that on an multi-install from previous apps it sorts the plugin list before installing in case you checked off UD+ before checking off UD

Is there an action item on my part?

Actually, yes.

 

Kinda threw me for a loop on CA because I was expecting javascript to sort the array as so that UD+ would come after UD.  But, the reverse is actually true (had to have CA do a reverse sort)

 

And then looked at my system log to see which order things are actually installed in from a boot and it's not what you expect, and your change won't work.

UD+ installs at boot before UD.  

 

EDIT.  nm you're looking at /boot and not /var/log/plugins to see if UD is there

Yes.  I want to see if the UD plugin is going to be installed, not already installed so the order doesn't matter.

There is definitely no virus contained within either Unassigned Devices or Unassigned Devices Plus.

There is a tiny one character bug when you go to the settings of UD from the Main page and hit the done button. It then takes you to unraid_IP/Settimgs instead of unraid_IP/Settings.

If you go from unraid settings to UD settings and hit Done, it works.

So, Im trying to format an 8TB external USB drive as exFAT and it keeps failing.  If I mount it on my Windows 10 PC, when I plug it in, and mount it with the Unassigned Devices plugin (yes I have UD+ as well), it will mount, but as soon as I start copying things, it says there is not enough disk space.  It has about 7.4 TB of usable disk space, and Im only copying like 3.5 TB worth of data.  The reason for the exFAT format is this drive is for my Nintendo Switch and that is what I use.  Any thoughts?  Here is what the drive log said.

Im kinda at a loss here and don't fully understand it.  Normally I just copy from my Windows 10 machine, but thought I would try this to see how the speed compared versus over the network.

Here ya go.  I tried several different times.  I even tried Fat32, to see if that would work, then I was gonna try to reformat on top of that if it did, but alas, they all failed to format.  Any help would be great.  For now, i'll just go back to the old way, but just wanted to bring it up in here just in case.  Thanks.

I am having a really strange issue...UD Settings > Destructive Mode refuses to save when I click apply it reverts to Disabled.

I have UD and UD+ installed, I am on 6.8.0 Version.

 

I have tried to reset everything by Uninstalling both UD+ and UD, and reinstalling, rebooting, fixing permissions...for some reason it refuses to work

 

Any ideas that could help me fix it?   Thanks!

Maybe you have a Flash problem that prevents saving any setting. Go to Tools-diagnostics and attach the complete Diagnostics zip file to your NEXT post

It's a bug from the latest update.  I'll post an update once I fix it.

I've updated the exfat packages.  Update UD+ and see if that helps.
