  1. Today
  2. I have a SI-PEX40097 card and when I try to put the disks into standby mode I get the error "unable to put this disk into standby". Does this controller not support spinning down drives? If not are there any other reasonable cards that do 16ch of 6gb/s sata drives?

    Drives hidden "PoolPart.xxx" folder changed names?

    Well, if this happened within the last 7 days, then could you run the StableBit Troubleshooter on the system in question? http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter use 3970 as the contact request ID.

    Problems with uptime of my DrivePool on an USB enclosure

    I hope so!

    DP won't see unmounted drive anymore!

    Awesome, glad to hear it!

    Scanner unfreezing my system.

    No idea. The service is what handles most everything. The only thing that the UI does would be the performance stats. So... maybe open up resmon, and open the disk tab, and see if that works?

    server reboots when removing a pool

    Okay, the crash does look like it may have been triggered by the DrivePool service (eg, the removal). https://stablebit.com/Admin/IssueAnalysis/28007 As for that error, check disk management, and see what it says on the disk. You may need to manually configure the page file, remove it from that drive, and reboot the system.

    Drives hidden "PoolPart.xxx" folder changed names?

    I can confirm that this happened to me as well. When I detected that a symbolic link pointing into a hidden PoolPart Folder didn't work anymore, it turned out that the hidden folder had been renamed. I’m not aware of anything unusual that might have caused this (no drive replacement or something similar). However, as the pool and everything else worked fine, I didn’t pay much attention to the issue (just replaced the link). I only know that the DrivePool version was 2.2.2.934 at that time (meanwhile I’m using 2.2.3.950).

    Drives hidden "PoolPart.xxx" folder changed names?

    Lol, thanks for the confirmation on my diagnosis of "Odd". I haven't noticed any other problems in the last couple days, so I'll just change my path in Snapraid to the new directory and start backing it up. Just wanted to ensure that this wasn't a warning sign of a problem that anyone was familiar with. Thanks!

    Problems with uptime of my DrivePool on an USB enclosure

    I found a driver update at highpoints website and I'm trying it out to see if there's some improvements...

    DP won't see unmounted drive anymore!

    Hurray, the `automount` helped! Thanks guys!
  13. Sorry to resurrect a old thread, I'm also planning to move to a esxi setup, And I read you need to disable RdmFilter.HbaIsShared but I read somewhere else you need to have that enabled to bypass the 2TB limit. My drives are all 4TB. Is this still true ?

    Clouddrive ReFS support is bad, fifth lost ReFS drive this year

    Count me among the unfortunate souls who also lost a drive. I had a 90TB ReFS volume and a windows update killed it over two years ago, and I ditched it right then. My solution is to use 55TB NTFS volumes (so that they stay below the 60TB limit for chkdsk). I have one large CloudDrive divided up into 55TB partitions, and then I combine them with DrivePool into one unified storage pool. The end effect is identical to having one giant drive, but I can repair volumes individually. I've been using this setup for a few years now without issue. Never had any unresolvable file corruption at all. I just expand my CloudDrive and add another 55TB volume when and if I need more space.

    Scanner unfreezing my system.

    I'll investigate the port multiplier route, but I wanted to limit the amount of raw cards in my system, hence my attraction to the Areca and similar options. I'm conducting an experiment. Instead of invoking the Scanner interface when the semi-freeze occurs, I'm letting it run all the time. It's been running like that for the past two days and I haven't experienced any freezes. If I make it to the 10-day mark, I'm going to assume Scanner is somehow defeating or bypassing the problem. If it gets there, do you have any ideas what could be happening?

    server reboots when removing a pool

    Well thank goodness it finally works, at first i did it without checking the 3 options, then it threw error that some files are being used, So i check the third option as recommended,thanks for the quick help chris Bonus question if you dont mind chris, my new drive suddenly has a D letter, and removing the letter gives me "assigning or removing drive letters on the current boot or pagefile volume is not allowed" any idea? Hmm i tried removing the paging file size from that drive but i still cant remove it..

    server reboots when removing a pool

    Ok looks like my server is already setup that way, I've sent the dump log, Please have a look. I've installed the newest beta as well, let me try again now..

    Clouddrive ReFS support is bad, fifth lost ReFS drive this year

    haha, ... /cries Yeah, that's disappointing. I know that Alex was planning on looking at better supporting ReFS in StableBit CloudDrive. And if he's able to, maybe find a way to better recover it. But that's a long shot.

    Balancer wants to throw "everything" on cloud drive?

    Yes, it will. StableBit DrivePool places new files on the disk(s) with the most available free space. That means that the Google Drive will be the primary drive that it wants to place data on. Because 70TBs is more than the rest of the pool. Also, I'm guessing that you used the "Disk Usage Limiter" balancer, and unchecked "duplicated" for all of the drives but the CloudDrive disk. If so.... that doesn't do what you think it does. StableBit DrivePool has no concept of "original" or "copy". Both files are 100% identical, and can be used interchangeably. So bu unchecking "duplicated data" for the other disks, you've created a situation where the only valid location for duplicated data is a single drive. It wants to move the rest of the data off of the other disks, as much as possible. No, what I think you want to do is ... remove the CloudDrive disk from the pool, then add that disk, and the D:\ pool into a new pool. Enable duplication on that pool, (and optionally, remove it on D:\), that way, one copy is on the CloudDrive disk, and another is on the local pool.

    server reboots when removing a pool

    It may be worth getting a crash dump here. http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_System_Crashes Also, it may be worth upgrading to the latest beta, and see if that helps: http://dl.covecube.com/DrivePoolWindows/beta/download/StableBit.DrivePool_2.2.3.950_x64_BETA.exe

    Doesn't see files in Cloud

    Because that's not how the software works. StableBit CloudDrive doesn't show you the existing contents of the cloud provider you're connecting to. Instead, it creates a virtual drive, mounts that, and then stores the raw disk data on the provider, instead. So, if you wanted to see those files, you'd need to download them, and copy them to the drive. But data on the drive won't be accessible on your Google account.
  22. Christopher (Drashna)

    Drives hidden "PoolPart.xxx" folder changed names?

    That's .... very odd. Well, maybe. If you replaced the disk, then StableBit DrivePool will want to give it a new, random block, and not the old name. So, this may very well be normal.

    Error Removing Drive

    Try this: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q5510455 But with just the folder in question, not the entire drive. If that doesn't work, then you may need to do some special stuff to remove the disk.

    License not transferring

    AppData is for user accounts, ProgramData is for services and the like. And if you want, upgrade to the latest beta version, as it should help prevent this: http://dl.covecube.com/ScannerWindows/beta/download/StableBit.Scanner_2.5.4.3220_BETA.exe
  25. Christopher (Drashna)

    Severe Issue

    That's odd. Though, this may be a simple fix: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_F1655 If you have issues moving stuff around because of the inaccessible folders/files, then you may want/need to do this: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q5510455

    Balancing?

    Welcome!
  27. Christopher (Drashna)

    Need to restore partition/poolpart folder 8TB size.

    Oh no! TestDisk and Recuva may be able to recover the partition data, and that may be what you want to do, actually. That said, 4TB may be fine, actually. StableBit DrivePool doesn't fill up the drive sequentially, normally. So, it likely wasn't completely full.
