  2. Answering my own question. After having basically given up on the DrivePool remote app on my replacement laptop for the past 4 weeks, I decided again to uninstall the app and reinstall it with a fresh copy a few days ago. For whatever reason, this time the app worked and connected to my DrivePool on my home server. It's all a mystery to me as to why it did not work before, but it's working now.
  3. If you are only transferring that single 1 TB file once in a blue moon, it might be easiest to temporarily turn off the SSD Optimizer until that file transfer is complete. Is it possible to have your backup program split the file into smaller parts for easier transfers? You can also just transfer files directly into a DrivePool HDD and DrivePool should pick it up without any problem. I have done that in a few cases and it worked fine for me. Of course, that circumvents your SSD and probably will be a much slower transfer. But at least you would not have to turn off the SSD Optimizer for all your other file transfers.
  4. I'm on the development beta release channel.

  6. Ok cool, Appreciate the quick response! Thanks
  7. Have you tried the beta version of StableBit Scanner. IIRC, there are some improvements that should help with false positives in the file system scanning.
  8. Yup, they run on Windows 11 just fine (Also Server 2022 looks to be Windows 10 based, 21H2, specifically). And yes, you can use 2x SSDs for cache, just download and install the SSD Optimizer balancer plugin. StableBit DrivePool Balancer Plugins
  9. we've run into a few people that have had issues with the HFS driver for windows causing BSODs, and a good number of people using primocache with StableBit DrivePool without issues.
  10. I think you opened a ticket for this as well, and that one of the poolpart folders is showing up a file. If so, then data recovery, or wiping the drive and letting it reduplicate the data is the best option here.
  11. Yup. But I would recommend deactivating all of the StableBit products before moving over to the new hardware, that way you don't run into any activation issues.
  12. Use powershell, and "remove-item". It should be able to do this. Otherwise, this should work. And if it's not, could you open a ticket at https://stablebit.com/contact
  13. Hi All Just after some advice. My Hard drive with the operating system of my Media Server is starting to get errors on it so I have decided I will change it. I will replace it with a SSD, my Drivepool has 6 HDDs, I looked up the forums and I can see the steps seem to be the following:- 1) Disconnect all the Hard drives from the system 2) Insert new SSD, install Windows OS and reboot 3) Download Stablebit Drivepool and insert license 4) Power down pc and reconnect the Drivepool drives 5) Restart pc Drivepool should recognize the drives and all my data will be safe, correct? The only thing is I have been running Windows Server 2011 for a long time and Im still using Drivepool 1.X , I want to Install Windows 10 this time and Drivepool 2.X which i have already bought with the same license. Will it be as simple as following the steps above or are there other steps I need to do? Thanks All
  14. Last week
  15. I have moved my hard drives to a new machine, and added 2 new hard drives at the same time. I use full pool duplication (2x). In this new machine, my 12TB pair of hard drives are not recognizing each other as duplicate. Instead, the data from one drive is showing as unduplicated and the other drive is showing the data as "Other". Now DrivePool is trying to duplicate the data from the unduplicated 12TB drive to the new 14TB hard drives in the system. How can I make DrivePool recognize that the 12TB pair are duplicates of each other?
  16. Hey @Jaga - I know it's been a couple years since you checked in on these forums but in case you get this message .... I used Primocache a couple years ago with Drivepool but at the time was suffering a lot of BSODs and suspected it could be a cause of conflict, so I stopped using it after my system M.2 drive failed and I had to redo everything. In hindsight now I believe my conflict was actually "HFS+ for Windows", (besides the point).... so trying to reimplement my Primocache usage now. Just curious if you're still using Primocache and Drivepool together, read & write cache, and if you've had any issues in the past 3 years? My use case: Drivepool: 4 x 5TB drives, 2 x 6TB drives, (with full file duplication) ..... adding 2 x 1TB SSDs for SSD Optimizer (write caching) Primocache: read cache only, L1: 4GB RAM, L2: 250GB on M.2 partition (I'm a video editor and animator and I handle a lot of big projects).
  17. i would also like to see dark mode addedto all stablebit products
  18. im hoping stable bit drive pool and scanner are ready for windows 11 and server 2022.. im upgrading my current home server froma z97 Xeon 1246 to either an amd epyc or ryzen 9 5950x and may upgrade os at same time... also can i use 2 ssd s as caching drives?

    Recursive delete?

    I am trying to delete a bunch of .nfo files from many different subdirectories inside a parent folder on my DrivePool. The .nfo files appear in the following folder structure: G:\ParentFolder\Folder1\Folder2\ After opening up a command prompt and CD'ing into ParentFolder, I type "del *.nfo /s" which normally executes a recursive delete of all applicable files in subdirectories. However, I get the following error message instead: "Could Not Find G:\ParentFolder\*.nfo" As I said, this command works perfectly in a non-drive pool setting. I have tried opening the command prompt with administrator privileges, but that has not worked. Am I not able to complete recursive deletions in command prompt when working in a pooled drive?
  20. No way a spinner like that reads 300MB/s. Suggest you restart scans on both and report how much they've progressed after like 10 minutes .
  21. I keep having a recurring issue where all of my drives will slowly get a File System Damaged error. I think something is wrong with this reporting. I run a drive check on my OS drive within Windows and it scans the drive and finds no issues. The only way to clear this is to have StableBit 'fix' the issue for all my drives. Then it goes away for a while, until it comes back again. I'm not noticing any other issues on my system. Any ideas on how to solve this?
  22. Hi All I run Windows 10 Pro x64 on a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P mobo with a Startech (Marvel) 2-port 6Gbps PCIe SATA controller card. The HDD cabled to the PCIe card is a Seagate 2TB ST2000DM008 3.5" SMR & scans at approx 300MBps; The HDD cabled to the mobo 6Gbps SATA port is a 2TB WD Black WD2003FZEX 3.5" CMR & scans at approx 100MBps, both HDD's spin at 7200rpm. Why is there such a large difference in scanning rate for theses 2 HDD's?
  23. Earlier
  24. /b seems to just clear the damaged sectors, but what is needed is a way to acknowledge the damaged sectors but stop reporting it in Scanner. I had the same problem and I don't want my disk to stop being used unless the damage is significant. There needs to be a method in Scanner to mark a damaged drive as healthy again, the same way you can mark a damaged file system as healthy again.
  25. Great! Thank you Rob - that's exactly what I'm doing.
  26. If you buy the discounted extra license where you enter your existing key to prove you already have a license it simply increases the number of licenses available on that key. You enter the same key into the new installation and that uses up the second license. The key doesn't change. I've moved pools around from machine to machine and it doesn't care which machine it's on. I have 4 drivepool licenses and 6 Scanner licenses and they all use the same key.
  27. On my desktop PC I have a 4-drive pool. I've migrated this before, but I followed Chris' instructions that included deactivating the license. The difference this time is that I am planning to still run Drivepool on the existing computer, so I'm curious if I can move the drives in the current pool to the other computer that will be under a different license that I will purchase. Bit more info: -Existing drive pool solely used by my Plex server. -Just picked up an Intel NUC and a 4-bay USB enclosure. -Want to move entire current existing pool to the NUC/USB. -Planning to purchase a new license and install Drivepool (and Scanner) on the NUC. -Then physically move the existing drives to the NUC/USB. -I would like to continue running Drivepool on the existing computer because I will be creating a new (albeit smaller) pool on it with some SSDs. Hopefully that makes sense. Any guidance appreciated. Thanks!
  28. I don't think so, I have the cache balance to the other disks around once a week, well before it is full
  29. Interesting, I did not know this. Even on Windows server editions? Can you elaborate at all about torrents on the pool?
