If you disable duplication, will DP un-duplicate the pool?


Best Answer Christopher (Drashna) , 19 April 2017 - 04:01 AM

Yes. 

 

When you change the settings, StableBit DrivePool will run a duplication pass, and unduplicate data, as necessary.  This basically means that it will delete the unneeded copies.

A couple drives failed in quick succession, haven't been able to replace them. I think I need to disable duplication until I get some new drives to fix the pool.

 

Will DP un-duplicate everything if I turn duplication off? That would give me drive space I need until I get some new drives.
