    Drivepool With Snapraid

    My snapraid.conf is pretty standard - I haven't really changed any of the defaults (so I haven't included them). I choose to keep a copy of the content file on every disk, but that's not strictly necessary. # Defines the file to use as parity storage # It must NOT be in a data disk # Format: "parity FILE [,FILE] ..." parity C:\Snapraid\Parity\1\snapraid.parity # Defines the files to use as content list # You can use multiple specification to store more copies # You must have least one copy for each parity file plus one. Some more don't hurt # They can be in the disks used for data, parity or boot, # but each file must be in a different disk # Format: "content FILE" content C:\Snapraid\Parity\1\snapraid.content content C:\Snapraid\Data\1\snapraid.content content C:\Snapraid\Data\2\snapraid.content content C:\Snapraid\Data\3\snapraid.content content C:\Snapraid\Data\4\snapraid.content # Defines the data disks to use # The name and mount point association is relevant for parity, do not change it # WARNING: Adding here your boot C:\ disk is NOT a good idea! # SnapRAID is better suited for files that rarely changes! # Format: "data DISK_NAME DISK_MOUNT_POINT" data d1 C:\Snapraid\Data\1\PoolPart.a5f57749-53fb-4595-9bad-5912c1cfb277 data d2 C:\Snapraid\Data\2\PoolPart.7d66fe3d-5e5b-4aaf-a261-306e864c34fa data d3 C:\Snapraid\Data\3\PoolPart.a081b030-04dc-4eb5-87ba-9fd5f38deb7b data d4 C:\Snapraid\Data\4\PoolPart.65ea70d5-2de5-4b78-bd02-f09f32ed4426 # Excludes hidden files and directories (uncomment to enable). #nohidden # Defines files and directories to exclude # Remember that all the paths are relative at the mount points # Format: "exclude FILE" # Format: "exclude DIR\" # Format: "exclude \PATH\FILE" # Format: "exclude \PATH\DIR\" exclude *.unrecoverable exclude Thumbs.db exclude \$RECYCLE.BIN exclude \System Volume Information exclude \Program Files\ exclude \Program Files (x86)\ exclude \Windows\ exclude \.covefs As for DrivePool balancers, yes, turn them all off. The Scanner is useful to keep if you want automatic evacuation of a failing drive, but not essential, and the SSD Optimiser is only necessary if you have a cache drive to use as a landing zone. If you don't use a landing zone, then you can disable automatic balancing, but if you do then you need it to balance periodically - once a day rather than immediately is best, as you ideally want the SnapRAID sync to happen shortly after the balance completes. I'm not sure what the default behaviour of DrivePool is supposed to be when all balancers are disabled, but I think it does split evenly across the disks.
