  1. @srcrist Brilliant responses, thank you! So if I'm reading this correctly, my best bet (if I want to move forward with all this) is to: Find a VPS that allows root access Use root to setup a Windows VM Install my applications (including CloudBit suite) on the VM Mount my CloudDrive within the VM, and point Plex at that If that's correct, I'll need to learn some Linux (unless VM installation is something I can open a support ticket on), and obtain an additional Windows 10 license. Neither sounds too rough, though, and definitely better than the idea of movin
  2. Do you have a recommendation for how best to handle the copy? My first thought would be to just open up my CloudDrive and an rClone mount on my machine, and then drag and drop. Is that correct? And in this case, would the data be moving from datacenter to datacenter, or does it come down to my machine first, and then back up to the cloud? If the latter, I'd be worried about data corruption and just general duration. I've only got 10Mbps up. As for the Windows VM, that sounds like a cool approach (assuming the provider offers this capability), but would there performance implications
  3. @Chase - Wow, that sounds amazing! It's out of my price range, though, unfortunately. @Christopher (Drashna) - On the migration front, what would the process look like if I did find a Linux seedbox I liked and needed to migrate off from my StableBit Pool of Drives to something on GDrive that the seedbox could read? I'm working with ~20TB of data, so curious what that process would even look like (and/or if I'd need any special utilities to do it properly). I suspect I'm sticking with what I've got, but I'm curious.
  4. Did you go with a hosted solution, or on prem? I'm curious what's out there for windows servers, and what their price ranges (and/or capability to host Plex) are.
  5. Thank you both for your answers! @srcrist, Your read is correct. I currently use CloudDrive for my data (a Pool of CloudDrives based on recommendations from one of your posts on this forum), but your callout re: Windows is a great one. @Firerouge, Appreciate your calling that seedbox host out as sketchy as well. They all feel pretty similar in that regard, based on what I've been able to research so far. My main concern is freezing/buffering on playback when off-network. I'm experiencing it right now even under these conditions (testing at my buddy's place): Video file i
  6. Hi there, I'm considering migrating my existing Plex Server to a seedbox (Seedbox.cc if that's relevant), with media stored in Google Drive. Currently, I have Plex Server running locally on an Intel NUC, with all media stored in an encrypted Drive Pool on Google Drive. This is via StableBit CloudDrive/Pool. My question is what my migration process would look like. What I'm hoping I can do is simply purchase the seedbox, install Plex Server, and point it at my existing media in Google Drive. Is that feasible given my existing configuration? I'm not entirely sure how I would manage Clo
  7. Ha! Well that's what I get for digging through menus and not combing the main UI first. Thanks again.
  8. Thank you! Trying the beta now. On a related note, is there a way in-program to verify the current active version?
  9. Hi there, I recently set up CloudDrive and CloudPool via Google Drive, and it was working beautifully until about a week ago. I started seeing this error, and while attempting to migrate or upload files I'd see a good initial transfer speed drop down to almost nothing before timing out. I've seen something similar to this reported in the forums for specific beta versions of CloudDrive. Here's my current version: Here are my I/O Performance settings (I hadn't been hitting any sort of throttling previously, but maybe there's something I need to set here to he
  10. Thank you so much! This is absolutely perfect. One final question as a follow-up to your answer here: Would it be reasonable to begin with a single 50TB cloud drive, and then expand to a DrivePool managed multi-drive setup if necessary? Or, would I save myself a lot of headache by setting up a pool of 50TB cloud drives from the get-go? Thank you again.
  11. Hi there, I posted this to the Plex build help subreddit, but there wasn't any activity there. I'm hoping some folk here might be able to help point me in the right direction! Please let me know if I'm breaking any rules or etiquette with this post. I'm happy to move or repost. I should add that I have dug through these forums as initial research. It seems this general configuration comes up often, but questions tend to focus on how to configure the drives and pool themselves. So far I'm planning to use the information provided by srcrist in this thread for that. My initial questions
