    Removing drive from pool

    Have you determined what speed your TV streaming device pulls movies from your Storage Spaces or DrivePool? For example, when I watch my DrivePool GUI, I can see that my Fire TV Stick is pulling about ~4 MB/s tops for streaming 1080p movies. I don't suffer any stuttering or caching on my system. If I try to stream movies >16GB, then I start to see problems and caching issues. But, at that point, I know I have reached the limits of my Fire TV Stick with limited memory storage and its low power processor. It is not a limit of how fast DrivePool can send data over my wifi. Well, there

    Removing drive from pool

    I just got done watching a 720p movie and I don't think my stream ever got over 1 MB/s. When I said the 1080p stream was 4 MB/s tops, that is maybe a short burst at the start of the file which I assume is filling the Fire TV Stick's onboard memory cache and then, like you noticed, it drops below 1 MB/s. Since you see more or less the same streaming transfer rate that I do on my system, maybe you can see why I am always saying that I doubt if your problem with streaming is coming from DrivePool. If I copy files to/from a remote computer to/from my DrivePool computer on my home network, I c

    A1: I'm not familiar with the Pace 5268A (or any other AT&T routers), sorry. Different country! In theory, generally, it should be possible to have router "A" handling internet traffic while router "B" handles local traffic without them fighting about it; in practice some routers are (much) less capable than others and some ISPs also lock down the functionality of routers they provide / mandate. For whatever it's worth, here's an example very basic setup: Internet <-> [WAN port] Router A [LAN port] <-> [LAN port] Router B [LAN port(s) and Wifi] <-> Local

  6. Same here. The bonus with DrivePool is that if it fails you don't lose data, just the pooled drive itself. Worst come to worst, just reinstall the earlier version again.

  13. It's a bit of a long shot but perhaps on the E and F drives, the PoolPart.* folder is not hidden and on the D and G drives it is? You can set Windows Explorer to show hidden files and folders.

  14. You have not stated how much data you have in your DrivePool. I just use the default DrivePool Balancers, and over time, the drives will fill up with data more or less equally. If you just started moving data onto DrivePool, it may be that not all drives have been used yet. The DrivePool GUI gives a visual graph of the usage of your drives. If there is not much difference, I would not be concerned. If you see one drive half full and another empty, then you might need to check which Balancers you have turned on and your Balancing settings in the DrivePool GUI. I have my settings to automat

    I don't know why you saw so much memory usage on your first install of DrivePool. I have never seen anything like that. Is it possible that DrivePool was performing some intensive task at that moment? I am glad that Christopher was able to get you back on track and that things are going much better (normal) now. A long yellow bar usually means DrivePool activity or an error state - like duplication needs to be re-checked. The green bar usually means everything is OK with DrivePool and does not need any attention. If you have a green bar, then I don't understand why you would be looking
