  1. Today
  2. Oh and here is my balancer snapshot. I thought Volume Equalization would do it... but no I didnt realize that was for volumes.... im a derp. I disabled that.
  3. Question 1. I have a single SSD for cache with the cache plugin. I was using the drive order deal to fill up the drive to 95% then move to the next one. I filled up two. I turned that off thinking it would re balance all the files to the other disks as i would like that to be the way moving forward, but those two disks stay at the 95% and everything new is balanced based on available drive space. Is there a way to force it to balance across ALL drives? Question 2. Is there a way to set a schedule for duplication? Say i want it to duplicate files at a certain time at night so i don't affect IO? Thank you all!!!
  4. Opened a Supportcase, will update here if solved.
  5. I'm running drivepool on a server and I'm sharing the pool. When I access the share on my Mac, every folder except for one is fine. There is a single folder that says I don't have permission to open it. When I check the permissions all of the folders including the one I don't have access to, all have the same permissions. Any ideas what the problem could be?
  6. No-one? I'm still left with 35,5GB on one of my cache disks, rebalance does nothing and new writes go straight to the harddisks. @Christopher (Drashna) do I need to open a support case?
  7. @exterrestris hey, so I got a couple extra ssd's, just wondering the advantages of making them there own pool, but more specifically, making them part of the main pool, why not just leave them out of the main pool?
  8. Yesterday
  9. You can find 1145 here: http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/
  10. Where can I find older Cloud Drive versions? I'm not seeing them on the download page.
  11. You should definitely run the troubleshooter and submit an official ticket though, before you downgrade, if you haven't already done so. You can find the troubleshooter here: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter
  12. Uninstall then use the .1145 installer. The other way may work, but uninstall/reinstall is always cleaner.
  13. Thanks, I'll try that. What's the proper downgrade process? Do I uninstall 1165 then install 1145, or can I just run the 1145 installer with 1165 still in place?
  14. So the short answer is that a checksum mismatch error ostensibly indicates unrecoverable data corruption on the provider. That being said, 1165 was giving me checksum errors on one drive, and downgrading to .1145 no longer gave the errors, even though it has the same checksum verification system, which was added in .1114. So if you're on 1165, it might actually be related to all of the other problems that people are seeing with 1165 right now. Try downgrading to .1145 and seeing if that makes them go away. If they persist, though, there is no recovery. That error simply means that the data was modified on/by your provider. If the data has genuinely been changed and corrupted, it cannot be fixed. It would be advisable to start copying the data off of that volume and onto a new one. Note that all of the other genuine corruptions were accompanied by a service problem at Google, and I have not heard of one since July. So there is cause to be optimistic that you're being given false errors.

    I know that they are actively working on the problems with .1165. I spoke with Christopher about it over the weekend/Monday. For now, it is safe to simply downgrade to .1145 to resolve the issues. If you are getting these errors, submit a troubleshooter report (BEFORE DOWNGRADING TO .1145) with full details while the issue is happening. It should help them to narrow down the cause. The troubleshooter is located here: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter If you need the installer for .1145, you can find it here: http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/
  16. Using RoboCopy from an admin command prompt will take care of this: robocopy "source directory" "source directory again" /S /move Example: robocopy "c:\Snapraid\mnt/" "c:\Snapraid\mnt/" /S /move But..wouldn't it be better if DrivePool didn't litter and instead cleaned up after itself?
  17. Last week
  18. After upgrading to the SSD Balancer was gone (I noticed this because the write speeds were a lot slower). After reinstall and configuration it doesn't appear to work. Writes go directly to harddisk in stead of to SSD and then to HDD. Is this a known issue or should I open a case? [Update] It appears to work-ish, I now have 35.5GB on one of the 2 cache SSD"s but it isn't moved over to the harddisk and a rebalance does not do anything. Any help would be appreciated.
  19. Sadly, although I had great experiences with support in the past, this time the support team has been very unresponsive. Maybe this time they are overworked, understaffed or I was unlucky and my case was assigned to an inexperienced support person. After sending the logs and running the troubleshooter, the next response from support was to... please send the logs and run the troubleshooter (yes, same thing again). It has been 5 days and so far formal support has not provided a single suggestion on how to solve the problem or given any sign of having done more than just glancing at my case and replying with a cookie-cutter response. This forum has been much more useful. So, for an update on all the things I tried and discovered: 1) For the good news, the pool runs fine when I'm not trying to make a change and I am able to increase the duplication to x3 or reduce it back to x2 just fine, no problems. 2) Every so often I am seeing errors about not being able to access files because they are "in use" even though those files are for applications that were not launched, have no background processes and during those tests I had already shut down any processes (like backups and antivirus scans) that could legitimately lock those files. I also run MalwareBytes in addition to the very strong antivirus I normally run, with zero threats detected (in other words I am quite confident that there is no virus scanning files either). 3) Every time I try remove a drive through the "Remove" option I get an error telling me that a directory does not exist or that a file already exists. Given the above precautions, checks and symptoms.... I strongly suspect of a DrivePool bug. Specifically, possibly multiple DrivePool threads stepping over each other. Possible workaround to remove a drive: 1) Increase the duplication to x3 (with 3 drives present at the time). 2) Remove the drive physically. 3) Remove the missing drive from the pool and reduce duplication back to x2. 4) Allow things to rebalance and add any new drive(s) to the pool. The workaround should not be needed, but with no hope for a prompt resolution it might be the only way to replace the old drives soon. I believe that workaround should be safe, but I would really appreciate if someone would confirm that my plan is valid.
  20. So, i setup the snapraid-runner powershell script today, however I am getting a couple weird errors, and was hoping someone who has used this would have any idea how to fix it. First error is this, it still runs, just wondering what variable or whatever is not set to give me this error: Does anyone else use this, or have any idea what these errors mean? You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression. At D:\snapraidhelper\snapraid-helper.ps1:621 char:3 + $config[$line[0]] = $line[1].TrimEnd() + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [], RuntimeException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : InvokeMethodOnNull Second is i/o errors on disks its trying to check, the disk throwing the errors is the actual Drivepool Volume, which it should not be checking, disk 9 in disk management is the actual pooled volume.

    I just started getting this exact same problem. Not sure what started it, but i had been using everything as expected throughout the day. It was only when I tried to detach a drive that I noticed something was wrong. The cpu usage went to 50% and then 80%. During this I noticed the drive was trying to upload but it wasn't going anywhere. By that I mean it uploaded 0.4 MB in a 20 minute span. Anyone figurre out what is wrong or workarounds?
  22. Tried Twice took 2 days Not fixed please check screen shot attached please note most of my pool is full of Duplication I DO NOT WANT ... how do i delete the Duplicates ??? WHY am i typing in to CMD why not have this Clean Duplication in the software ??? I can not be the first dude to reduce the folders he wants Duplicated ?
  23. After having some stability issues with Cloud Drives on Google Drive, I thought I'd go a little overboard with redundancy. I created six 10TB drives, pooled them with Drive Pool, then enabled file duplication for the whole pool with three copies of each file. Soon enough I started getting checksum mismatch errors on one of the drives. Following advice found in other topics I mounted the drive ignoring checksum errors and tried to run chkdsk /r on it. It ran for a few days and finally gave up with an error stating "An unspecified error occurred (6e74667363686b2e b34)." Now, I know I can destroy the drive that's generating errors, create a new one and let Drive Pool rebuild duplication but that's going to take a LONG time. Is there any way to recover from this error using the existing duplication data, just overwriting the bad data with the good from the rest of the pool?
  24. I'm in the process of migrating my data between two systems. I cloned the existing system to a new system with more powerful processors and RAM. I need to migrate the data from one system to the other but I am getting the "your license needs to be transferred to this system" message on the new system. I have multiple licenses for DrivePool and my question is is there a way that I can use a different license on the cloned system so I can have both up and running at the same time? Thanks in advance.
  25. Hi Drashna, Thanks for the reply. I apologize for wording the subject incorrectly. It should have been "How to split a current drive pool". With over 40 hard drives connected there are half that are connected externally. They are currently part of the 40 hard drive pool. My goal is to split the external hard drives so they become their own separate drive pool. The two pools will be mirrored. During storms I can power off and disconnect all external hard drives for safe keeping. Everytime I try to remove one of the hard drives from the pool Drive Pool insists on the standard removal process. I doesn't make sense in my case to remove the data then turn around and copy the data back to the drive again. Does it? Perhaps I'm pushing Drive Pool to do something it's currently not capable of doing. If that's the case I'll revert to using the supported method. Thanks, Terry
