hopefully I am right here.
I have a Synology NAS with docker instances of radarr, sonarr, plex, rtorrent and so on.
I have 2 internal hdd drives, and 2 external drives.
Knowing that external drives mostly aren't the best solution for 24/7 usage,
I mostly disconnect them from power.
BUT, I want radarr and plex knowing, that the files are still there, but just not connected.
I tought I could cache files and paths with mergerfs cache.files=full, but if I unmount the drives, the folders and files are gone.
Is it possible with rclone cache, to suggest plex and radarr, that the files are still there?
I guess, when fully re-scanning/indexing the library, plex and radarr recognize that there is something faulty,
but this isn't what i want. Its okay to re-scan/index files, only when the external drives are connected.
But i hope, after indexing, both are just "pinging" the files, for checking whether something changed, or not.
So, hopefully, rclone cache is able to do so. Can somebody confirm, that caching would do the trick?
mergerfs cache didnt do. And this experience cost me one complete day of struggling around with docker, shared volumes and so on
And if rclone would do the trick, maybe somebody it willing to push me into the right direction, what i have to care about.
