I am new to Unraid and not familiar with the workaround. I have a 4.7 server that has a five 2TB and two 1TB Hard drives of different models and brand and I am trying to copy and move some files from several of my external USB drives.
I know that Solid State Drives have faster read and write access times than regular hard disk drives. However, I also know that flash memory found in SSDs cannot retain files longer than the drives that we are using today cause I experienced it myself in some of my Flash Disks. What is your experience in keeping files using solid state drives? How many months/years can it sustain the files and leave it uncorrupted if it is not connected to the computer?
When setting up the hard drive it is not reaching its full capacity and large portion is not detected.
What is the reason for it and please tell me how to solve my problem?
I bought a netbook last month and I noticed that the size of my netbook is just too small.
This is the reason why I'm planning to buy an external hard drive to store there some of my files.
What could be the largest storage space an external hard drive have?
I want to know this cause I'm intending to buy the largest one. Haha.
I would really appreciate your help.
My slave drive encountered problems lately. First I noticed that my boot time increased, then I file names became random characters, and worst, I could not save and view files in that drive anymore. I tried using it in Linux to see if it might be a virus, and also swapped IDE cables to see whether it might be my cable but the problem is still there. What can I do to fix this problem? Will still be able to recover files in it?
I use my external hard drive to store files and movies. When attached to my hdmi player, I can see the titles of the folders and movies, but when I attach the drive to my computer to edit the files, I cannot see the folders. Why does this occur? How can I edit the files?
