  1. Notification about disk space

    UnRAID never automatically moves files from one share to another - doing so always has to be a manual process (although plugins such as UNBalance can help with this). The disk that is selected for new files is determined by the combination of Split Level and Allocation method specified for a share (with Split Level winning any contention). It sounds as if Split Level is what is causing new files to go to the nearly full disk? Without more detail on the Share settings and the actual path of the files being copied this is just a guess.
  2. Access my unRaid tower externally?

    The dyndns feature is aimed at keeping your networks external IP address synchronised with a domain name (your ISP can arbitrarily change the external address unless you explicitly pay to have a fixed address). As such it is independent of the incoming VPN other than to allow a constant network name to be used when connecting externally). The VPN feature applies after (using the dyndns address) you have tunnelled into your home network. At that point you can see anything on your home network that is visible to the VPN server on your home network. You now use addresses on your local LAN to access such devices. it is important to realise that these are two independent services that are typically used to solve two different problems you encounter when trying to set up external access. the dyndns service gives you a consistent network name that can be used externally to refer to your home system the VPN service allows you to securely tunnel into your home network so you have the same capabilities as when you are locally attached to your home network.
  3. Access my unRaid tower externally?

    How do you see the files from your Android device when it is locally connected? You should do the same thing with the VPN active. Presumably you run sort of File Manager app on the Android device.
  4. Access my unRaid tower externally?

    You access them just as if you were locally connected to your LAN. With a VPN connection active you are emulating being locally connected.
  5. perc h310 replacing AOC-SASLP-MV8

    What makes you think no drives are being seen? According to the syslog 6 drives are being seen.
  6. Questions about Parity

    I think you misunderstand how parity works! There is a good description of it in the documentation on the Limetech site. Parity has no concept of files or data. It works purely at the physical sector level and as such compression is irrelevant.. Parity works in conjunction with good drives to reconstruct sectors on a failed drive using an appropriate mathematical algorithm. With a dual parity system the same concept is used with a different algorithm to the first parity The whole idea is that with a single parity system any single drive failure can be rebuilt using all the other good drives. With dual parity any two failed drives can be rebuilt.
  7. Stop Cache from Filling Up?

    Under Settings->Global Share settings you can set a Min Free Space value for the cache drive. When the free space drops below this value then writes to user shares will bypass the cache and go straight to the array. Note that this will not have any effect on dockers that are configured to use /mnt/cache as this is bypassing the User Share System so can still fill up the cache.
  8. mover runner not working...

    It would help if you gave some indication if what you have for the Use Cache setting for the share. A good description of the meaning of the settings is shown if you turn on the Help option in the GUI.
  9. Or /mnt/diskX if there are no User Shares.
  10. Hard drive limit?

    Not quite The drive limit applies to all drives plugged into the machine (excluding the unRAID USB boot drive) that are present at the moment the array is started regardless of whether unRAID is using them. It is only after the array has been started that removable drives can (temporarily) be plugged in without worrying about this limit. The next time the array is started the check will be repeated so such drives cannot be left plugged in permanently.
  11. Hard drive limit?

    It is worth pointing out that the drive count check is done at the time the array is started. You can plug in additional removable drives once the array is started without unRAID getting upset. This can be convenient for handling backups.
  12. Lost flash drive, rebuilt new one, no eth0?

    .Have you checked that the USB drive is labelled as “UNRAID’ as if not it will not be mounted during the boot process which could explain your symptoms. You can check this by logging in at the Console prompt and using the ‘df’ command to check that it shows the USB stick mounted at /boot. If you have switched to a new USB drive, then you will need a license to go with that USB drive as it is tied to the GUID of the USB drive that boots unRAID. The key file from the backup will not be valid for the new USB drive. However it seems ar the moment you are not getting that far so that is an issue for later.
  13. udma crc error count

    If you click on the orange icon in the Dashboard page there is an option to acknowledge the value there.
  14. WebGUI "refuses to connect" but SSH working

    You can download the Zip file of the release from the Limetech site and then copy all the files starting with ‘bz’ from the zip file to the unRAID flash drive (/boot from the CLI Level or ‘flash’ share at the network level).
  15. How to Force Legacy Mode in BIOS [SOLVED]

    You need to fix whatever is causing the problem at the BiOS level. The difference between Legacy and UEFI only applies to the booting mode used - not the other BIOS setting so it is not that affecting whether the drives are seen. I would carefully check connections and power.
