    NFS Issues Post Clean OS Reinstall

    The threaded copies are really what interested me most, but I'm already saturating Gigabit over normal file shares, so probably wouldn't gain much if anything. Still - had to ask. Thanks Christopher.

    Lost ability to open i/o performance settings

    Anyone still having this issue, grab the latest build, as that should definitely fix this issue: http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/StableBit.CloudDrive_1.1.0.1025_x64_BETA.exe

    Upgrade failing....

    "Error 0x80070643" means you have a pending reboot. Reboot the system and try again. Also yeah, grab the above linked version.

    Upgrade failing....

    Any reason, why you don't take a more current build? According to the change log is this the latest one, which passed the upgrade and functional tests: http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/StableBit.CloudDrive_1.1.0.1025_x64_BETA.exe

    Yes! I have installed 1.1.0.1025 and the problem has been solved. Thank you!
  10. Well, I hadn't had a chance to get back to you yet, there. But disabling balancing "isn't the answer" here. At least, not a good one.

    Error Removing Drive: Operation was canceled

    Reboot the system, and try again. If that doesn't work, then enable file system logged, and reproduce: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_2.x_Log_Collection Then run the StableBit Troubleshooter, and use 3674 as the contact request/ID. http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter

    [Suggestion] Dual cache HDD.

    Pro is also rated for higher IOPS, which for this is the most important attribute.

    NFS Issues Post Clean OS Reinstall

    For Windows, I think you're best using CIFS/SMB/Samba/Windows File Shares. But for some linux programs, it's better to use NFS. Or in my case, I used NFS for PXE booting, since that is all that is supported.
  14. I am attempting to remove a drive from the pool, while running a fully updated Windows Server 2016 Standard installation and StableBit DrivePool v2.2.2.928. My active DrivePool consists of 22x8tb + 2x4tb drives. The drive removal process begins as expected, but after clearing the drive to about 50% of full drive capacity, I am repeatedly presented with the following dialog: "Error Removing Drive: The operation was canceled." and: "Error Removing Drive: (0xC0000056) - A non close operation has been requested of a file object with a delete pending. (This error was returned when either or both the "Force" options were selected in the "Remove Options" dialog... and no items current exist in the Recycle Bin.) Of course, the "Operation was canceled" dialog would be expected if I had actually canceled the operation. However, no such "cancel" action was manually taken. Subsequently, DrivePool begins to "re-balance" content and restore the removed content. Restarting the service, and/or server, fail to rectify this issue. In making multiple attempts to address this issue after reviewing log files, etc, various different "options" have been selected from the "Remove Options" dialog, including: No option selected Force close any open unduplicated files on the drive being removed Force damaged drive removal (unreadable files will be left on the disk) BOTH Force damaged drive removal & Force close any open files The drive has been checked for errors, and no errors have been found. It would seem that removing a drive is an activity of critical importance, second only to adding a drive... so it is quite frustrating to encounter such an issue, especially on a basically virgin patched & updated Windows Server 2016 installation, dedicated explicitly to serving this pooled collection of drives. Please advise.

    [Suggestion] Dual cache HDD.

    Ah, nice. Then you can put a decent NVMe in your second socket. Given your circumstances, I'd go for a nice Samsung NVMe, whatever you can afford. It should fix the bottleneck problem if it's large enough and on the faster socket.

    [Suggestion] Dual cache HDD.

    850 pro (the sata one) I've got 2 M.2 sockets, one runing pci 3.0 x4 and other one runing pci 2.0 x4.

    Pro has much higher endurance, and would be the recommended one for higher usage. Samsung SSD/NVMe Pro editions are top shelf. But don't you already have a 950 Pro that's getting bottlenecked? Or is the 970 you are considering purchasing a NVMe? This site can be helpful when comparing NVMe's and SSDs for speed and pricing.

    Samgun 970 Evo 500gb sounds good? or best to go with pro version?

    NFS Issues Post Clean OS Reinstall

    Since you're fixed now (grats!) perhaps I could hijack the topic and ask about the advantages of running NFS on a Windows platform that doesn't include it natively? i.e. Win 7, Win 8, Win 10. I'm a performance nut, and am always looking out for new software to improve my systems. I'll freely admit I have no prior experience with NFS in the past, but it does sound intriguing.

    That worked, thanks a bunch!
  22. Thanks! I'm the same guy you helped on Reddit earlier, BTW. Solution is there. Basically: disable balancing and all will be well in the land.

    is DrivePool 3 being worked on?

    You're very welcome!

    Disk Space Equalizer + File Placement

    Uncheck the "File placement rules respect real-time file placement limits set by the balancing plug-ins" and "Unless the drive is being emptied" options on the main balancer settings page: https://stablebit.com/Support/DrivePool/2.X/Manual?Section=Balancing Settings#File Placement Settings
  26. Try this version: http://dl.covecube.com/DrivePoolWindows/beta/download/StableBit.DrivePool_2.2.3.936_x64_BETA.exe Also, check with a utility like WinDirStat, and check where the files actually are located on the underlying disks. If they're not in a PoolPart.xxxx folder, then that's the problem.

    NFS Issues Post Clean OS Reinstall

    Use an older version of HaneWin NFS server. They updated something that broke compatibility. 1.2.30 NetworkLockManager added file-id as inode for NTFS on win7 and higher gui modified So the 1.2.29 version on their site should work fine.

    Disk Space Equalizer + File Placement

    Okay, this has been driving me crazy. I created an account on here just so I could ask this question. Here is what I want to do: I want my files to balance between my drives equally - as much as possible. I'm not certain what the difference is between "by free space remaining" vs "by the percent used," but that's not my main crux. I want to use File Placement rules to ensure certain folders stay on SSD. This is basically certain games I'm currently playing. I have File Placement rules set to move those to an SSD. Great, that works. After that, though, the balancer immediately moves those same files back off the SSD. It doesn't make any sense. My understanding is that after I disabled "File placement rules respect real-time file placement limits..." that it should not move those files. I even tried unchecking everything but "Balancing plug-ins respect file placement rules." It still removes the files from the SSD. I want the File Placement files to always stay on the drive I tell it to unless the drive is failing. If Scanner says the drive is failing that's the only reason I want the files to move and I cannot get it to do that. Literally any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
