Files on v6 boot drive
Files on v6 boot drive
- Here are the files and folders on a v6 flash drive, what they are or do, whether they come from the distro or not, and possibly whether they can be restored.
- All files and folders are listed as in the root of the flash drive (e.g. /bzimage, /config/super.dat). On the unRAID server, they are actually at /boot (e.g. /boot/bzimage, /boot/config/super.dat). Some files and folders may not exist in your installation, that's OK. Current and future unRAID v6 releases may add additional files and folders that may not be listed below.
