    If you go to BTRFS, you'd better be running your NAS on an UPS. Otherwise you're going to be seeing "Error = parent transid verify failed" real soon. Hint: If your file system is not set "read only" or "bricked" by the above error, you might need the…

    To be honest, I am not really sure if I have backups... I set everything up a long time ago and I have forgotten a lot. :) All I know is I have a snapraid setup. I'll have to figure out what that means again. Looking at SMART, there are some intriguing…

    Quote from thecheat001: “And would you believe I pulled the wrong drive? At least I know how to do it now, when I do it again in 193.4 minutes. ” This is why checking the serial number in Storage, Drives, against what's on the drive label is…
