    I have a 15TB clouddrive, backed by a gsuite account, and performance has gotten significantly worse than it used to be. I'm on a 300/300 fiber connection, and using a 100gb expandable cache on an SSD. Clouddrive generally reports a download speed of 60-100mbps. Even 720 content like 4000kbps buffers constantly. This doesn't seem possible if its downloading 60mpbs. 1080 6000kbps content is unwatchable. when I look at the clouddrive in perfmon it generally shows 100% activity. The SSD activity, CPU, and RAM are all very low usage. I have prefetch enabled, but it doesn't seem to work consistently. It shows me a "hit rate" regularly in the 30-60% rate or something, even when the only thing happening is a single stream being watched (which I would think would be giving a 100% hit rate). Does the prefetcher prefetch files? Or prefetch blocks? If it is prefetching blocks, is fragmentation an issue on a clouddrive that could be confusing the prefetcher (eg, its downloading the next block, which doesn't actually contain the file i'm watching, wasting bandwidth, and causing a cache miss?) Defragging this would seem to be super slow since it would effectively have to download and upload every block to do it (perhaps multiple times). I've tried all kinds of different prefetch settings, different block sizes, different minimum read sizes, nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

    Yes, that's definitely a false positive. It's just some of the troubleshooting stuff for the UI. It's nothing harmful. And if you check, the file should be digitally signed. A good indicator that it's legit.

    Sure. I purchased and installed PartedMagic onto a USB. I then booted using this USB to run a Secure Erase, but it was not able to complete successfully. So I ran DD (through PartedMagic as well) on the drive around 5 times. I then converted the disk to GPT using diskpart and installed a fresh copy of Windows. I used CHKDSK, StableBit Scanner, and Intel SSD Toolbox (Full Diagnostic) to confirm that read/writes were functioning as intended. Based on what I could understand from Intel, it seems like the Optane drives are fairly unique due to their usage of 3D XPoint technology which caused the specific/strange behavior I was facing.

    I definitely suggest configuring snapraid so it points to the drivepool folder with the GUID inside the config file so that it's much easier to restore. Snapraid doesn't have to be the root of the drive, it can be anywhere you like (as long as they are on different psychical drives). So instead of doing: data d1 z:\ data d2 y:\ data d3 x:\ You do: data d1 z:\drivepool.{guid}\ data d2 y:\drivepool.{guid}\ data d3 x:\drivepool.{guid}\ That way after a failure e.g d2 dies, you drop your new drive in, add it to the pool, get the new GUID from the new drive, and edit your snapraid conf to comment out the old drive and add the new one by changing d2 y:\drivepool.{guid}\ to d2 y:\drivepool.{newguid}\ like so: data d1 z:\drivepool.{guid}\ #data d2 y:\drivepool.{guid}\ data d2 y:\drivepool.{newguid}\ data d3 x:\drivepool.{guid}\ Then run your fix and it all just works - and you don't have to move your files around.

    Hi there, Awesome software - as always! I've been using Drivepool and Scanner since nearly the beginning. Currently I have something like 22 drives in my main drive pool. They range from iSCSI, SATA-attached, USB (depending on the pool), Ximeta-attached (they have a custom network thing they do), or even virtualized under ESXi. Anything that shows up to Windows as a physical drive can just be pooled. I love it! Recently purchased Clouddrive, after messing around and some Google Searching of this forum, I think I'm fairly setup well. I have 13 clouddrives setup. 1 box.com, 2 dropbox, 10 Google Drive (not the paid cloud drives, but the provided ones for personal use). I used all defaults for everything, except set the cache to MINIMIAL+ Encrypted it, set it to auto login to that encrypted drives (as I only care that the CLOUD data is encrypted...I mean, you want to look at my pictures of my kids THAT bad and break into my PC to do it...okay, enjoy, you earned it). Pointed to a specific 100GB hard drive partition that I could dedicate to this (using drivepool on all other drives and one specific thing mentioned was the cache drive could NOT be part of a drivepool) renamed it removed the drive letter and set it to a folder name (use this with drivepooling to cut down on the displayed drive letters for a clean look) I am getting a slew of "throttling due to bandwidth" issues. I admit that my cache drive is probably too small for the amount of data I DUMPED and will continue to monitor this as I do not feel that I was getting those messages when I did not just DUMP enough data to fill the ENTIRE CloudPool in one shot. So, my request is to have a view in the program to look at all drive upload/download at the same time. Maybe even space? I love the existing charts. They are easy to look at, easy to read and understand. I also like the "Technical Details" page as that shows a TON of information, such as the file - or chunk - and how much of it is uploaded / downloaded. I'm wondering if there is a way to view all drives at once? I would use this to get a sense of the overall health of the system. That is, if I have to scan through all 13 drives, I do not see where my bandwidth is being consumed to understand if the cache drive is FULL or if I am having Upload/Download issues. This reason, by the time I click through each drive, I do not see where the bandwidth is being consumed as the bandwidth seems to shift between drives fast enough that I do not see a true representation of what is going on. I'm sure part of that is redrawing the graphs. I find the technical details page much more useful, as I do not see what is LEFT to upload, but I get a much faster idea of what is going on and although annoying to click through ALL the drives, it seems to be giving me a better idea of what is going on. I think that having an overall page would be fantastic. Thank you again for continuing to show what is possible! --Dan

    It's not a bad idea, at all. Add a request for "all drives" in the reporting, as well, as more robust reporting, in general. https://stablebit.com/Admin/IssueAnalysis/27368 That said, this won't make it into the 1.0 release, most likely. Alex doesn't want to add any more features right now, as we want to get the software "out the door". But after that, we will be adding a bunch of providers, and addressing feature requests like this.
