New user evaluating DrivePool to replace my cheap and aging RAID5 enclosure attached to a WHS2011. I simply used drag and drop to move some of my shared folders from "H:\ServerFolders\" to "K:\Shared Folders\" and got a few errors about not being able to copy due to file path name being too long. After clicking skip and letting it finish I noticed about 300GB had failed to copy out of 1.5TB.
Now I doubt chances are I was living at the extreme end of the file path limit with 300GB of data and that single character extra put me over, so I had a question:
1) How does drivepool handle saving long (but not over windows limit) file structures to the virtualpool drive when it then has to go append "PoolPart.ef564dc2-9e4d-4302-91bb-3bb3cef750cc5" at the beginning when saving the structure to a real drive and then being too long for windows to save?
I'm now trying to move the data with this robocopy command :robocopy "H:\ServerFolders" "K:\Shared Folders" /MIR /ZB /SEC /R:10 /W:10 /V /TEE /LOG:xcopy.txt and so far i haven't seen any errors flash by, but would it be better to migrate using that command over gui drag and drop?
