  1. Drivepool with Local Disks and Parity via CloudDrive

    Yes, absolutely! http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q4142489 for reads, update to the latest beta, it will do this automatically. http://dl.covecube.com/DrivePoolWindows/beta/download/StableBit.DrivePool_2.2.0.878_x64_BETA.exe As for writes, there isn't a good way to do this, aside from the SSD Optimizer. The reason is that StableBit DrivePool writes all copies out, at the same time (real time duplication), so there isn't a way to really stop this. However, it shouldn't be a problem, IMO.
  2. Hard Shutdown and Re-Measuring

    Well, first, I'd recommend opening a ticket. And do thishttp://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_System_Freeze
  3. Wanting to build a server 40-45 Bay

    Shhh, we don't talk about those. Mostly, because they have nothing to prevent or reduce vibrations. Which can shorten the lifespan. And for the price, I'd rather buy Supermicro or similar,
  4. My Rackmount Server

    hahaha, the one time that I don't proofread.... That, and I'm in the process of switching to the Colemak keyboard layout. S and R are right next to each other.
  5. My Rackmount Server

    To get this started apparently: My server was kind of piecemeal constructed. I recently purchased a 42U HP Rack from a local company (via Craigslist), for super cheap ($50, so literally couldn't pass it up) Sophos UTM (Home): Case: Antec ISK 110 VESA case, Mobo (SoC): ASRock RACK J1900D2Y RAM: 4GB of non-ECC RAM OS Drive: Samsung 850 Pro 120GB SSD Storage Server: Case: SuperMicro 847E26-R1K28LPB OS: Windows Server 2012R2 Essentials CPU: AMD FX-8120 Intel Xeon E3 1245v3 (link) MoBo: ASRock 990FX Extreme3 Supermicro MBD-X10SAT-O (link) RAM: 2x8GB Crucial ECC GFX: nVidia geForce 9400 Intel HD 4600 (on processor GFX) PSU: Built in, 2x redundant power supplies (1280W 80+ Gold) OS Drive: Crucial MX200 256GB SSD Storage Pool: 131TB: 4x 4TB (Seagate NAS ST4000VN000) + 8x 4TB (WD40EFRX) + 12x 8TB Seagate Archive (ST8000AS0002). 2x 128GB OCZ Vertex 4s Misc Storage: 2TB (Seagate ST2000DM001) - used temp files (downloads) HDD Controller card: IBM ServeRAID M1015, cross flashed to "IR Mode" (RAID options, used to pass through disks only), plus an Intel SAS Expander card USB: 2TB Seagate Backup Plus for Server Backup (system drive, and system files) using a WD Green EARS NVR (Network Video Record, aka IP camera box) via BlueIris: Case: Norco ITX-S4 OS: Windows 10 CPU: Intel Core i3-4130T MoBo: ASRock Rack E3C226D2I RAM: 2x8GB G.Skill GFX: ASPEED 2300 PSU: 450W 1U OS Drive: 128GB SSD, Crucial M550 Storage Pool: 2x4TB Toshiba HDD HyperV VM Lab: Case: Supermicro SYS-6016T-NTF (1U case) OS: HyperV Server 2012R2 CPU: Intel Xeon 5560 (x2, hyperthreading disabled) MoBo: Supermicro X8DTU RAM: 64GBs (8x8GB) Hynix Registered ECC (DDR3-1333) GFX: ASPEED 2300 PSU: 560W 1U OS Drive: 160GB HDD Storage: 500GB Crucial MX200 SSD, using Data Deduplication for VMs Emby Server: Case: Unknown (1U case) OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 CPU: Dual Intel Xeon x5660's (hardware fairy swung by) MoBo: Supermicro X8DTi RAM: 20GB (5x4GB) Samsung Registered ECC GFX: Matrox (Onboard) PSU: 560W 1U OS Drive: 64GB SSD, Storage: 128GB (cache, metadata, transcoding temp) Netgear GS724T Smart Switch 24 port, Gigabit, Managed Switch (one port is burned out already, but it was used). Dell 17" keyboard and monitor tray (used, damaged, propped up). Images here: http://imgur.com/a/WRhZf Here is my network hardware. Not a great image, but that's the 24 port, managed switch, a punchout block, waaay too long cables, cable modem and Sophos UTM box. Misc drawers and unused spares. And my servers. HyperV system in the 1U, and my storage server in the 4U. And the Cyberpower UPS at the bottom. What you don't see is the NVR box, as it's been having issues, and I've been troubleshooting those issues.
  6. Drivepool with Local Disks and Parity via CloudDrive

    You need two drives for "duplicated". Otherwise, you're telling the system that there is only one disk that is valid for both copies of the data. The best way to do this would be go create two pools. One with F:, E: and D:. Add this pool and I: to another pool. Enable duplication on that pool, but not the pool in this pool
  7. Feature request: Multiple cache drives

    No benefit to doing this, based on how the cache works (see below) ....... I'd recommend RAID10, then. Or something that won't lose all if the data if it fails, because there may be data to upload. No point. StableBit CloudDrive stores the cache in one, large file. It isn't/can't be spread between disks.
  8. My Rackmount Server

    Every time I add a new dick disk >:( And I've posted about it on the MS forums, "sorry, we cannot reproduce it"......
  9. Windows 10: BSOD caused by covefs.sys

    Yup. Otherwise, it's more complicated Yup. Win8 and up .... it's much harder to get into, in part because the OS boots so bloody fast. And ghe pool still loads in safe mode. So ... it may not help.
  10. Using potential faulty disk only for duplicated files

    Sorry. The logs don't show anything specific. If you could, enable logging again and make sure to trigger the error. Note and report the time that it iccurs at. Also, make sure you're on the latest beta before doing this. http://dl.covecube.com/DrivePoolWindows/beta/download/StableBit.DrivePool_2.2.0.878_x64_BETA.exe
  11. OneDrive for Business question - Drive or SP / Thread limit?

    IIRC, there isn't really a difference other than how you interface with it. As for threads, 5 is probably a good number. If you start getting throttled, then it's too high. Also, make sure you use this version: http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/StableBit.CloudDrive_1.0.2.957_x64_BETA.exe
  12. My New LIAN PC-V2120B Full Tower Home Server Setup (DrivePool/Scanner)

    Wow... that's ... Well, you got a nice computer out of it, at least?
  13. Windows 10: BSOD caused by covefs.sys

    Upgrade to the version linked above. http://dl.covecube.com/DrivePoolWindows/beta/download/StableBit.DrivePool_2.2.0.877_x64_BETA.exe It the issue persists, then do this: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_System_Crashes Posting the text above isn't really helpful, as there isn't really any real info in the post. Unplug the drives. That should stop the issue, at least temporarily. Then upgrade
  14. Recommended server backup method?

    Windows Backup (the Win7 style) also uses VSS. In fact, a majority of backup solutions use VSS. There is nothing to "fix" here. We would need to add support. Which is incredible hard, as there is absolutely no documentation on how to. So we'd be completely reverse engineering the feature. The alternative is sync software, as these rarely use VSS.
  15. Google Team Drive?

    Well, I'll flag it for review, just in case. https://stablebit.com/Admin/IssueAnalysis/27686
  16. Drivepool very slow when measuring

    It's running in the "SYSTEM" account, so it's treated as "System". And opening a lot of files can be very CPU intensive.
  17. Drive 'not checked'

    Odd. Yes. But it may disable the automatic scan. Double click on the drive in question, and you should see a button on the left side.
  18. [DrivePool BETA] SSD Optimizer not moving data away

    Yeah, the "Prevent Drive Overfill" balancer will attempt to empty the drive until it's about 85% full. So.... it definitely sounds like this was the case. http://dl.covecube.com/DrivePoolWindows/beta/download/StableBit.DrivePool_2.2.0.878_x64_BETA.exe
  19. Looks like you got flagged as a spammer. Not sure how/why. Should be fine now.
  20. REFS and bad sectors?

    It would handle them the same way that NTFS does, I believe. As for specifics, I'm not sure. And yes, different than bit rot.
  21. Recommended server backup method?

    IIRC, the "File History Backup" relies on the "USN Journal", an advanced file system feature that we don't support. Using something like "Free File Sync" or the like would work better.
  22. Drive 'not checked'

    Make sure the "Start / Stop Automatically" button in the toolbar is highlighted. And have you messed with the "Disk Settings" for this drive?
  23. Windows 10: BSOD caused by covefs.sys

    Yup, that's FCU. glad to hear it then!
  24. Google Team Drive?

    Google Team Drive is meant to be shared, correct? If so, then probably not, because it will cause issues.
  25. Acronis and Drive Pool Share

    Yeah, it's using VSS then. And ONLY VSS. That would cause that behavior exactly, actually.
