    Yeah i just figured it out myself, it didn't work even with registry imported, This might take some time if i fill up all 60 drives someday..

    thanks.. yeah I went back in and now I have it set for just I: as cache and rest are archive... so that now the drive is empty and seems to be functioning correctly where it is a straight copy without the dwindling speeds.... I added the SSD as a cache as you see I'm having copying file issues. Now that I have set this, I'm still having an issue but I believe it is my machine itself. before you see slowness, now it copies at a full 450MB/s but another machine I have (plex) copies at 750MB/s. While it is totally faster from my plex box and funny how that works as the computer not copying as fast is the main rig that edits videos, photos, large iso copies, etc... so id want it faster there... but still 450MB/s on 10gb is still faster than 120MB/s on my 1gb network!!! so while 4x faster.. not full speed. ive got a system issue.. because.. iperf shows super fast across the 10gb (and think iperf does memory to memory omitting hardware) so network is good. my machine has 2x nvme on a quad pci-e 16x card that copying across each of them, they get 1.35GB/s.. its just exiting this machine... so more for me to test when I get time.

    My Rackmount Server

    Wow yall got awesome setups! I don't have a rack, nor do I want the sound of the rack servers. what I have started using was a Lenovo ThinkStation Towers - dual xeon - 16 slots for memory!!!!! and now Lenovo P700 and P710's. they are all quiet and can be pumped up on drives and ram and dual xeon's ESXI 6.7 Machine 1 - 2x Xeon E5-2620 v4 @ 2.10GHz - 64gb ram ESXI 6.7 Machine 2 - 2x Xeon E5-2620 v0 @ 2.0GHZ - 128 GB Ram ESXI 6.7 Machine 3 - 2x Xeon E5-2620 v4 @ 2.10GHz - 64gb ram FreeNAS 11.1 - 1x Xeon E5-2620 V3 - 24gb ram - 6x 2tb wd black (yeah I know reds not back but ive got them and they work.. hah) Server 2016 / stablebit drive pool - HP Z420 - OS-128gb SSD / pool - 3x 2tb wd black + 2x 4tb wd black + 512gb ssd crucial for SSD Optimizer Server 2016 is getting ready to gain 2 ( 6x2.5" hot swap bays) and filled with 12x 512gb crucial ssd running off 2x HP 220 SAS controllers Network... this is a beauty.. ive got $75 into.. HP Procurve 6400CL - 6 port CX4 port 10gb switch 5x ConnectX-1 CX4 port 10gb NIC running HP FW 2.8 1x ConnectX-2 CX4 port 10gb NIC running Mellanox custom forced 2.10.xxxx fw!!!!! just got it and toying... I get that people say cx4 ports are old and dead but for $75 to be fully up for me is just the right price...

    @TeleFragger From the image, it looks like it's writing to the G:\ drive, which is not an SSD. So my guess is your settings are not configured correctly. If you could, open a ticket at https://stablebit.com/Contact

    Download Speed problem

    EDIT: Disregard my previous post. I missed some context. I'm not sure why it's slower for you. Your settings are mostly fine, except you're probably using too many threads. Leave the download threads at 10, and drop the upload threads to 5. Turn off background i/o as well, and you can raise your minimum download to 20MB if that's your chunk size. Those will help a little bit, but I'm sure you're able to hit at least 300mbps even with the settings you're using. Here is my CloudDrive copying a 23GB file:

    Optimal settings for Plex

    I wouldn't make your minimum download size any larger than a single chunk. There really isn't any point in this use-case, as we can use smart prefetching to grab larger chunks of data when needed. Your prefetcher probably need some adjustment too. A 1MB trigger in 10secs means that it will grab 300MB of data every time an application requests 1MB or more of data within 10 seconds...which is basically all the time, and already covered by a minimum download of 20MB with a 20MB chunk size. Instead, change the trigger to 20MB and leave the window at 10 seconds. That is about 16mbps, or the rate of a moderate quality 1080p encode MKV. This will engage the prefetcher for video streaming, but let it rest if you're just looking at smaller files like EPUB or PDF. We really only need to engage the prefetcher for higher quality streams here, since a 1gbps connection can grab smaller files in seconds regardless. A prefetch amount of 300MB is fine with a 1000mbps connection. You could drop it, if you wanted to be more efficient, but there probably isn't any need with a 1gbps connection.

    Optimal settings for Plex

    Nope. No need to change anything at all. Just use DrivePool to create a pool using your existing CloudDrive drive, expand your CloudDrive using the CloudDrive UI, format the new volume with Windows Disk Management, and add the new volume to the pool. You'll want to MOVE (not copy) all of the data that exists on your CloudDrive to the hidden directory that DrivePool creates ON THE SAME DRIVE, and that will make the content immediately available within the pool. You will also want to disable most if not all of DrivePool's balancers because a) they don't matter, and b) you don't want DrivePool wasting bandwidth downloading and moving data around between the drives. So let's say you have an existing CloudDrive volume at E:. First you'll use DrivePool to create a new pool, D:, and add E: Then you'll use the CloudDrive UI to expand the CloudDrive by 55TB. This will create 55TB of unmounted free space. Then you'll use Disk Management to create a new 55TB volume, F:, from the free space on your CloudDrive. Then you go back to DrivePool, add F: to your D: pool. The pool now contains both E: and F: Now you'll want to navigate to E:, find the hidden directory that DrivePool has created for the pool (ex: PoolPart.4a5d6340-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-cf8aa3944dd6), and move ALL of the existing data on E: to that directory. This will place all of your existing data in the pool. Then just navigate to D: and all of your content will be there, as well as plenty of room for more. You can now point Plex and any other application at D: just like E: and it will work as normal. You could also replace the drive letter for the pool with whatever you used to use for your CloudDrive drive to make things easier. NOTE: Once your CloudDrive volumes are pooled, they do NOT need drive letters. You're free to remove them to clean things up, and you don't need to create volume labels for any future volumes you format either. My drive layout looks like this:

    Hi everyone, First, I would like to share that I am very satisfied with DP&Scanner. This IS a "State of the art" software. Second, I have personally experienced 4 HDD drives fail, burned by the PSU,(99% data was professionally $$$$ recovered) and a content information, would have been comfortable, just to rapid compare and have a status overview. I also asked myself, how to catalog the pooled drives content, logging/versioning, just to know, if a pooled drive will die, if professional recovery make sense (again), but also, to check the duplication algorithm is working as advertised. Being a fan of "as simple as it get's", I have found a simple free File lister, command line capable. https://www.jam-software.com/filelist/ I have build up a .cmd file to export Drive letter (eg: %Drive_letter_%Label%_YYYYMMDDSS.txt), for each pooled drives. Then I scheduled a job to run every 3hours, and before running, just pack all previous .txt's into an archive, for versioning purposes. I get for each 10*2TB, 60% filled pooled HDD's, around 15-20MB .txt file (with excluding content filter option) in ~20minute time. An zipped archive, with all files inside, is getting 20MB per archive. For checking, I just use Notepad++ "Find in Files" function, point down to the desired .txt's folder path, and I get what I'm looking for, on each file per drive. I would love to see such options for finding the file on each drive, built up in DP interface. Hopefully good info, and not a long post. Good luck!

    Whatever you all do, don't wait 3 years and 8,000 movies (taking up 50TB), later to decide duplication would be a good idea. When I noticed my pool was getting full, it finally dawned on me I'd have a miserable time replacing lost movies if even one of the 15 WD40EFRX 4TB drives went south. Not only did it blast a hole in my wallet this week, to fill the remainder of my RPC-4224 case with 8x new WD80EFAX 8TB and 1x new WD100EFAX 10TB drive (experimental), it appears it will take a month of Sundays to get the job done. I probably doesn't help than I'm doing this on an old WHS2011 machine with 3x AOC-SASLP2-MV8 controllers, one of which is running in a 4x slot. I just hope I don't kill something in the process. I honestly didn't think the 10TB drive would work. I had it initialize, partition and format it on a newer PC for some reason. So I'm still not 100% sure how reliable its going to be. After 4 hours, it actually looks like its copying about 500GB per hour. So maybe it won't a full month of Sundays...
