SnapRAID Rename Content Error

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am a noob. I was doing scrubbing of my pool for the first time and at 45% of the run there was an error of renaming the "content.tmp" to "content" I didn't touch the computer the moment this error had happened.

 

What went wrong for me?

I'm going to admit first and foremost. I've never used SnapRAID before. Just going to put that out there but I see it requires the use of a config file. Can you post what yours looks like?

Don't see what you need? Check the Full List or *PM me, if I haven't made it I'll add it to the list.

*NOTE: I'll only add it to the list if the request is something I know I can do.

Hmn, looking at a couple config files online did you try adding:

exclude *.tmp

In the exception section?

 

Do note this will ignore all files with the .tmp extension so if you had any plans of wanting to back those up...

Good suggestion. I will give this a try. I am currently making another scrubbing attempt running at 26%. If this fails again, then I will add the tmp extension to my config file and report back.

 

Update: The second run ran fine and completed without the need to add the exclude tmp. Don't know about why the error happened at the first run. I have enough free space in the HDDs to accommodate many files.
