access to /mnt/shares

There is no /mnt/shares. There is /mnt/user where the user shares are accessed, but those don't have anything to do with UD.

 

You need to enable SMB for the Unassigned Device

Check under Settings->Unassigned Devices that you actually have it set to make SMB shares from UD visible on the network.


I did not set the 'No' to 'Public' as I thought 'No' ment no security and public access which is oviously not the case.
Switching to public did it! Thanks a lot for guiding me through this!

how is it possible  1 drive can be in a cache pool  and in unassigned drives at the same time?    shouldnt it be hiding from it as my other cache pools dont show up

It looks as if it temporarily dropped offline and then came back online.  The device Id changed and Unraid does not handle this.

ah ok  ya thanks...    i  when i re booted it fixed itself  i not 100%  sure if its back plain or power supply .. told my sister when i see her to just give me the computer  since shes a few hours away   i cant just fix it easily... may just find a computer case and skip the hot swap.. and go straight to just mount the hard drives in the case..  no need for 4 bay hot swap

I am trying to install the Unassigned Drives Plus addon and I keep getting this error. I must be missing something somewhere.

Maybe a problem with your Unraid flash drive.

 

What do you get from command line with this?

df -h

I am attempting to reformat an UD with partitions using this tutorial from Spaceinvader One. However, I'm running into an issue where I can't write to the UD after partitioning the drive.

 

I've tried clearing the disk, removing the disk, and deleting it from the historical devices to no avail. I can't write to either partition via Krusader.

 

Appreciate any assistance here!

Try deleting the /flash/config/plugins/unassigned.devoces-plus/ folder and try to install again.

Does it work if you format it with UD?

How i can enable password protection to the share which i create on unassigned drive? 

And is it anyway have also that share hidden?

You set user permissionn in UD Settings.  You can also select share 'Yes (hidden)'.

I was having a similar issue. Was a permissions issue in a place I least expected. Check the permission on the device disk itself. For some odd reason, mine were reset back to only root having access and Group and Other were set to NO ACCESS, instead of read-write.

Mount the UD disk and give me the output of 'mount' command from a command line.

 

You are mounting the disk with the 'discard' option set.  It would be better to not do that and install the "Dynamix SSD Trim" plugin and trim on a schedule.
