    Not sure what makes you think this - it definitely shows which disks duplicated files are on! I developed it and used it to identify where I had duplicate files on my own disks. it was developed a long time ago (on unRAID v5 although it also works on v6) before plugins like the File Integrity plugin, so feel free to use that if you prefer.

    I am afraid that I am unlikely to add a delete switch as that is too dangerous and could easily result in data loss if you are not very careful. I thought about it when developing the script but then decided against it as I could easily delete the wrong copy if the files are not actually identical at the binary level. The easiest way to handle this would be to output the results to a file and then edit them to make it into a shell script with ‘rm’ commands for the files that are not wanted. Depending on how your duplicates are located you might be able to use a ‘rm -r’ type command on containing directories.

    Not quite sure what you mean by this? It looks for duplicates with the same relative path (I.e. the same name) that exist on more than one disk. This can happen if you have been copying files between disks on unRAID and have not deleted the source files. That can be a bit confusing on unRAID as when you look at the User Share Level you will only see one instance. It does NOT look for files with different paths/names that have the same contents if that is what you are looking for.
  4. It is not recommended to have a VM with its system drive running off a drive in the main array as the limited write performance of the parity protected array adversely affects performance of the VM. Normally VMs are either run from the cache pool, or from a drive mounted outside the array using the Unassigned Devices (UD) plugin. Having said that you can specify exactly what drive(s) a VM should use.
  5. Share Internet

    Not sure I understand what you are asking for? What do you want to share it with? Are you talking about applications running on unRAID or something else? In a typical setup you would be connecting unRAID to a router and that handles the internet connection.
  6. parity works at a lower level than encryption (It works at the physical sector level) so it works in a way that is not affected by whether encryption is in use or not.
  7. It is worth pointing out that steps 4 can be done from the GUI by clicking on the drive in the Main tab to get to the relevant dialog without using a SSH session.
  8. You can start with the ‘retain all’ option, and then change only the slots that need correcting. Much easier (and less error prone) than trying to enter all slots from scratch.
  9. Restarting the Web GUI - Is It Possible?

    The GUI is NOT restartable in unRAID 6.3.5 In unRAID 6.3.5 the GUI is delivered by a Web server built into the emhttp process (which is not restartable). In unRAID 6.4 the GUI now runs under a standard web server (nginx).
  10. It is not a bug as it is mentioned in the Release notes as one of the changes that you no longer set the port in the go file (but maybe not prominently enough?).
  11. It does not show as a plugin on my system - only under Tools. If you have it showing under plugins then you should have installed that version.
  12. This is probably because you installed it during the early 6.4.0 rc cycle and missed removing it when the Release notes said you should.
  13. Random Restarts

    You mention getting random restarts. This is almost certainly a hardware issue of some sort. Things to check that can cause such symptoms would include the power supply and the system/cpu fans.
  14. Upgrade I/O error

    If you download the 6.4.0 release you will need all of the bz* style files to be copied to the flash.
  15. This plugin gives you a large list of additional things you can (optionally) install. You have to select from the list which ones you want.
