  1. To add to this, yes, the progress is saved. The "scanning" percentage is based on what needs to be scanned currently, not on the whole disk. Which can be misleading. That said, you can see how the drive is tracked here: https://stablebit.com/Support/Scanner/2.X/Manual?Section=Disk Scanning Panel#Sector Map And you may note that each sector has a date when it was last scanned. Each region is tracked, and different regions on the same disk can and will have different dates and times. Over time, this should actually help the software to "learn" when to scan the drives, by picking times when they are much less likely to be throttled.

  2. You absolutely can use StableBit DrivePool in a VM. There shouldn't be any issues with doing so, if you're passing the whole disk through. The only caveat is that you may not get SMART support for the drives inside of the VM, but this depends on hypervisor and how things are configured.

  3. I know the chance of this is near zero, but the most recent Windows screenshotting AI shenanigans is the last straw for me. The incredible suite of Stablebit tools is the ONLY thing that has kept me using Windows (seriously, it’s the best software ever - I don’t even think that’s an exaggeration). I will pay for the entire suite again, or hell Stablebit can double the price for Linux, I’ll pay it. Is there ANY chance a Linux version of DrivePool/Scanner would be developed?

    Can I use Drivepool inside a VM?

    FWIW when I ran DrivePool in a MS Hyper-V VM a few times late last year, to mess with various pool setups, it worked without issue.

  5. Mission accomplished! Thanks for the steer, Shane!

  6. Never mind. 😉 To accomplish my particular task, I don't actually need to make the files visible in Windows File Explorer, I just need to tweak OneDrive's settings to de-select the "OneDrive\Apps\StableBit Cloud Drive" folder. Now OneDrive will stop syncing it to each and every PC with OneDrive installed. To free up the space it's already wasted, I then select the same folder in Windows File Explorer, right-click it, and choose "free up space."
