    Unintentional Guinea Pig Diaries. Day 8 - Entry 1 I spent the rest of yesterday licking my wounds and contemplating a future without my data. I could probably write a horror movie script on those thoughts but it would be too dark for the people in this world. I must learn from my transgressions. In an act of self punishment and an effort to see the world from a different angle I slept in the dogs bed last night. He never sleeps there anyways but he would never have done the things I did. For that I have decided he holds more wisdom than his human. This must have pleased the Data God's because this morning I awoke with back pain and two of my drives mounted and functioning. The original drive which had completed the upgrade, had been working, and then went into "drive initializing"...is now working again. The drive that I had tried to mount and said it was upgrading with no % given has mounted (FYI 15TB Drive with 500GB on it). However my largest drive is still sitting at "Drive queued to perform recovery". Maybe one more night in the dogs bed will complete the offering required to the Data God's End Diary entry. (P.S. Just in case you wondered...that spoiled dog has "The Big One" Lovesac as a dog bed.. In a pretty ironic fashion their website is down. #Offering)

    Unintentional Guinea Pig Diaries. Day 7 - Entry 1 OUR SUPREME LEADER HAS SPOKEN! I received a response to my support ticket though it did not provide the wisdom I seek. You may call it an "Aladeen" response. My second drive is still stuck in "Drive Queued to perform recovery". I'm told this is a local process and does not involve the cloud yet I don't know how to push it to do anything. The "Error saving data. Cloud drive not found" at this time appears to be a UI glitch and it not correct as any changes that I make do take regardless of the error window. This morning I discovered that playing with fire hurts. Our supreme leader has provided a new Beta (1.2.0.1306). Since I have the issues listed above I decided to go ahead and upgrade. The Supreme leaders change log says that it lowers the concurrent I/O requests in an effort to stop google from closing the connections. Upon restart of my computer the drive that was previously actually working now is stuck in "Drive Initializing - Stablebit CloudDrive is getting ready to mount your drive". My second drive is at the same "Queued" status as before. Also to note is that I had a third drive created from a different machine that I tried to mount yesterday and it refused to mount. Now it says "drive is upgrading" but there is no progress percentage shown. Seems that is progress but the drive that was working is now not working. Seeking burn treatment. I hope help comes soon. While my data is replaceable it will take a LONG TIME to do. Until then my Plex server is unusable and I have many angry entitled friends and family. End Diary entry.

    Unintentional Guinea Pig Diaries. Day 5 - Entry 2 *The Sound of Crickets* So I'm in the same spot as I last posted. My second drive is still at "Queued to perform Recovery". If I knew how to force a reauth right now I would so I could get it on my API. Or at the very least get it out of "queued" Perhaps our leaders will come back to see us soon. Maybe this is a test of our ability to suffer more during COVID. We will soon find out. End Diary entry.

    WSL 2 support

    I tried to access my drivepool drive via WSL 2 and got this. Any solution? I'm using 2.3.0.1124 BETA. ➜ fludi cd /mnt/g ➜ g ls ls: reading directory '.': Input/output error Related thread: https://community.covecube.com/index.php?/topic/5207-wsl2-support-for-drive-mounting/#comment-31212

    Mixed speed disks

    So I think it is a matter of use case and personal taste. IMHO, just use one Pool. If you're going to replace the 5900rpm drives anyway over time anyway. I assume you run things over a network. As most are still running over 1Gbit networks (or slower), even the 5900rpm drives won't slow you down. I've never used an SSD Optimizer plugin but yeah, it is helpful for writing, not reading (except for the off-chance that the file you read is still on the SSD). But even then it would need a datapath that is faster than 1Gbit all the way. What you could do is test a little by writing to the disks directly outside the Pool in a scenario that resembles your usecase. If you experience no difference, just use one Pool, makes management a lot easier. If anything, I would more wonder about duplication (do you use that?) and real backups.

    OK. My mistake, then. I haven't started this process, I just thought I remembered this fact from some rClone work I've done previously. I'll remove that comment.

    Same behaviour for me. I submitted a ticket today to support.

    I'm enjoying your diary entries as we are in the same boat... not laughing at you... but laughing/crying with you! I know that this must be done to protect our data long term... it's just a painful process.

    Hey guys, So, to follow up after a day or two: the only person who says that they have completed the migration is saying that their drive is now non-functional. Is this accurate? Has nobody completed the process with a functional drive--to be clear? I can't really tell if anyone trying to help Chase has actually completed a successful migration, or if everyone is just offering feedback based on hypothetical situations. I don't even want to think about starting this unless a few people can confirm that they have completed the process successfully.

    I had the same issue. Contacted support and was told that they (Covecube) need to update the DrivePool virtual driver and have it re-sign by Microsoft before it can be used with the latest Insider Build. I have no idea how long it would take them. Hopefully soon.

    Just to clarify for everyone here, since there seems to be a lot of uncertainty: The issue (thus far) is only apparent when using your own api key However, we have confirmed that the clouddrive keys are the exception, rather than the other way around, as for instance the web client does have the same limitation Previous versions (also) do not conform with this limit (and go WELL over the 500k limit) Yes there has definitely been a change at googles side that implemented this new limitation Although there may be issues with the current beta (it is a beta after all) it is still important to convert your drives sooner rather than later, here's why: Currently all access (api or web/googles own app) respects the new limits, except for the clouddrive keys (probably because they are verified) Since there has been no announcement from google that this change was happening, we can expect no such announcement if (when) the clouddrive key also stops working either It may or may not be possible to (easily) convert existing drives if writing is completely impossible (if no api keys work) If you don't have issues now, you don;t have to upgrade, instead wait for a proper release, but do be aware there is a certain risk associated. I hope this helps clear up some of the confusion!

    Win10 build broke DrivePool how to fix?

    Same here, on multiple PCs. Complete removal and reinstallation does not solve the problem

    Just a heads up, this is a known issue, and we are looking into a solution for this issue (both to prevent it for new drives and for existing drives). I don't have an ETA, but we are actively working on it.

    So weird, this seems to make it work on my end also! Just go to https://console.developers.google.com/apis/library/drive.googleapis.com Press "Enable" and afterwards go disable it again - voila it works.

    In the DP GUI, see the two arrows to the right of the balancing status bar? If you press that, it will increase the I/O priority of DP. May help some. Other that that, ouch! Those are more like SMR-speeds.

    WSL2 Support for drive mounting

    Hi im using Windows 10 2004 with WSL2. I have 3x drives: C:\ (SSD), E:\ (NVME), D:\ (Drivepool of 2x 4TB HDD) When the drives are mounted on Ubuntu, I can run ls -al and it shows all the files and folders on C and E drives. This is not possible on D When I run ls -al on D, it returns 0 results. But I can cd into the directories in D stragely enough. Is this an issue with drivepool being mounted? Seems like it is the only logical difference (aside from it being mechanical) between the other drives. They are all NTFS.

    Hi all, I am using CloudDrive for a while now and I am very happy with it, nevertheless I have a question if it is also possible to script it? At the moment I have configured DrivePool and CloudDrive on my personal server. CloudDrive is my solution for a backup to the cloud, but as I don't want to have the drive always mounted (virusses, ransomware, etc), I'd like to script it. I already have a script which syncs my data to the CloudDrive but I'd like to enhance it so it mounts the drive. And it would be very nice if it could be dismounted when Cloud synchronization is completed. Regards, Wout

    You can reset the status, and it will flag it to get scanned. https://stablebit.com/Support/Scanner/2.X/Manual?Section=Disk Scanning Panel#File System Health

    You will never see the 1 for 1 files that you upload via the browser interface. CloudDrive does not provide a frontend for the provider APIs, and it does not store data in a format that can be accessed from outside of the CloudDrive service. If you are looking for a tool to simply upload files to your cloud provider, something like rClone or Netdrive might be a better fit. Both of those tools use the standard upload APIs and will store 1 for 1 files on your provider. See the following thread for a more in-depth explanation of what is going on here:

    Optimal settings for Plex

    You're just moving data at the file system level to the poolpart folder on that volume. Do not touch anything in the cloudpart folders on your cloud storage. Everything you need to move can be moved with windows explorer or any other file manager. Once you create a pool, it will create a poolpart folder on that volume, and you just move the data from that volume to that folder.

    Removing drive from pool

    Fully recognize that the current issue is not mine (but I'm the OP) however would highly appreciate if: 1. How do I find out which files on drives are unduplicated? 2. That this thread is anyway updated with recommended processes/commands need to be followed when a problem occurs. Or a link to such processes/commands. cheers Edward

    Hello, I'm on Fast Ring in Win10. Yesterday's update broke Drive Pool that's super crucial for me and few others that are not crucial. I went the normal way, uninstalled, cleared appdata, cleared bunch of registry entries, uninstalled drivers as much as I can find along with Scanner. also uninstalled the Covecube drive under Hardware... Yet still, I see the covecube as a drive and it won't let me add any drives to a new pool. How can I delete the so called existing pool that is no longer shown... Surely not DrivePool's fault, but how can I fix this? Any ideas? Yes, I know I can return to previous build, that's more headache, I'd rather try to fix the current one. Should have been as easy as re-install drivepool... looking for help

    WSL 2 support

    Unfortunately, we don't have any plans on adding support for WSL2 at this time.
