Hi, I need emby to access a Windows formatted raid in linux. I mounted the raid with the ldmtool but I cannot access the files with emby. I gave emby access to the drive with chown but with no luck. I saw lots of posts in Google and here about that but for normal drive... I use Elementary OS 5.1(bases on Ubuntu 18.04) Thank you for any help, all is welcome.
Zero_Kool posted a topic in General DiscussionThanks for reading my post.... My recent 120GB kingstion v200 ssd failed last night which runs MB3 ;( I was in the process of backing up the ssd when it failed.....ran toolbox for the discontinued drive but nothing see's it? I am stuck on deciding if I should go with another SSD? or a cheaper 1TB WD blue drive for $50? What is the best RAID setup? I currently have a 4TB samsung external drive with most media on it aswell... I was thinking of running whole new configuration and / or VM's? What is the best setup to go with? Brainstorming.....
I've only just recently noticed that even the smallest files on my NAS are taking 256MB of space - this adds up to many, many gigabytes of wasted space. I'm sure this has something to do with the block size that is being used. I have a single volume consisting of 8 x 2TB drives in Raid 6 using EXT4. I can't remember if there was even a block size option when I set up the volume. 256MB seems way too large. Most of that data on the NAS is obviously video, but with all the associated metadata and images taking up 256MB each, I'm filling it up far quicker than I should be. Here's an example: I ripped and encoded the Freaks and Geeks DVDs and the main series folder contains a total of 84 files (18 video files, 46 images, 19 xml files and 1 mp3) - the total size is 9.48 GB but the size on disk is 30.0 GB ! I just performed a search for "backdrop2", "backdrop3", etc in one of my folders just to see how much data I could save my deleting these additional (nice to have) backdrops - I found 167 files which would give me back 41.7 GB ! (I wonder if this is actually just Windows reporting the wrong size on disk for an EXT4 volume over Samba)
