Several days ago I installed WHS 2011 + Stablebit Drivepool (running version 2.1.0.558) and migrated my data over from my WHSv1 server.  I enabled folder duplication on a few of my server folders (that I moved to my drive pool from their default location) and after a few days started noticing these duplicated folders showing up when I browse through my folders on my drivepool.

 

The folders with the name_2 only have a few of the files that are in the original folder.  When I first saw this I deleted a few of them (hope I didn't mess somethign up).  I tried to find something about this posted, but I couldn't find anything.  If this is tied to the folder duplication process (which I assume it is) I thought it was invisible to the user.  What am I missing?

By chance, did you use Teracopy to migrate your data?

I did!  I assume this is the problem then and not drivepool which helps me considerably with my peace of mind.  Thanks :)

Then that would be why, actually.

 

Specifically, when TeraCopy encounters a duplicate folder or file, it appends _2 to the file name, to avoid merging/overwriting. 

 

And as you can probably guess, I've ran into this issue as well.

 

You can rename the folders and remove the "_2" from the folder, and it should prompt you to merge the folders.
