    Same here. Any update from the developers? This issue was opened a month ago and nothing... Not very good considering this is paid for software.

    Hello! I'm fairly new to StableBit, but liking the setup so far! I've got a few pools for various resources in my server. In case it's important, here's a quick idea of what I've got running: Dell R730 running Windows Server 2019 Datacenter, connected to a 24 disk shelf via SAS. Each drive shows up individually, so I've used DrivePool to create larger buckets for my data. I'd like to have them redundant against a single drive failure, but I know that means duplicating everything. I will eventually have a pool dedicated to my VMs, and VMs deduplicate very well since each one requires essentially a copy of the base data, and while I will have backups of this data, I'd still like to have a quicker recovery from a drive failure in case that does happen so they'd also be duplicated... (Scanner currently tells me one of my disks is throwing a SMART error, but i don't know how bad it is... I'd like to run it into the ground before replacing it to save money on purchasing new hardware before it's actually dead...) So, I know deduplication isn't supported against the pool itself, but I was curious if people have deduplicated the physical disks, and if windows dedupe sees the pool data and tries to deduplicate it? I noticed this thread, unfortunately it's locked for further comments as it's fairly old, was talking about deduplicating the drives that a pool uses, but I don't know if they meant the files that weren't part of a pool, or if they were talking about the files from the pool. If possible, I'd love to hear an official answer, since I'd rather not run this in an unsupported way, but I'm really hoping there's a way to deduplicate some of these files before I run myself out of space... Thanks for any info that you can provide!

    Optimal settings for Plex

    If you haven't uploaded much, go ahead and change the chunk size to 20MB. You'll want the larger chunk size both for throughput and capacity. Go with these settings for Plex: 20MB chunk size 50+ GB Expandable cache 10 download threads 5 upload threads, turn off background i/o upload threshold 1MB or 5 minutes minimum download size 20MB 20MB Prefetch trigger 175MB Prefetch forward 10 second Prefetch time window
