  1. Hi, I get this error frequently... I'm not sure if it's because my cloud drive has been uploading for about 1.5 weeks so far and I am also downloading from it periodically for use with Plex... but I do get this error frequently enough. It seems to happen with all my cloud drives... I've detached and re-attached, but that doesn't seem to work... I suspect it might be my cache (SSD shared for all 4 cloud drives which is also being used for Windows OS), but I would like to have a way of making sure it's the SSD before I go out and by another one. Thanks!
  2. This setup looks good to me. Yes, all your duplication will go to the CloudPool, from what I see. This setup will limit the size of your hybrid pool (with duplication fully enabled) to the size of your smallest sub pool, in this case the DrivePool.
  3. Hi, I have a similar situation... My OS is on my SSD, and I am using the same SSD as the cache for my 3 clouddrives. However, two out of the three are used for duplication. Is there a way to select one of them as the drive that the data gets read from all the time... because right now, although it looks like the data is always pulled from the same drive, I have no way of guaranteeing it (as far as I can tell).
  4. The issue with duplicating in a hybrid pool (1 HDD-Pool combined with 1 Cloud-Pool) is that you won't be able to duplicate past the size of your HDD pool (or whichever disk is smaller). It tries to duplicate in the event of a drive failure, but in the hybrid pool, where your two drives are an HDD-Pool and a Cloud-Pool, it will take the smaller of the two drives and duplicate to the other. It won't be able to duplicate beyond that. The reason I did mine by setting up duplication in the HDD pool via it's sub drives (in your case, the 10 HDDs would be setup with 2x Pool duplication to protect against 1 drive failure) and setup duplication in the cloud pool separately is because I want to have an ever growing drive (so all overflow goes to the cloud drives) while still protecting against any individual drive failure. I also use the file order placement plugin (downloadable plugin) to prioritize placing files on the HDD-Pool and on top of that I place file placement rules on the folders I want to keep locally... the rest gets uploaded to the cloud. So, the idea is to protect against any single drive failure while still having unlimited storage available on the PC.
  5. Do you mind explaining this a bit? I have 3 gdrive accounts and currently uploading 10TB or so... and it's taking forever as I have real time duplication on... so my effective speed is about 75Mbps even though I'm using 225Mbps across my accounts. I would love to share the load, unload my local HDDs faster and duplicate at a later time... but whenever I try turning off real time duplication, it still only uploads to one of my gdrives and just ignores the rest. I'm not sure at what point it switches from one gdrive to another... but it seems to focus on one. I assumed that the issue was because the calculation is done on drive percentage free, and since they are 55TB drives, the imbalance of 30-50Gb (during my tests) wasn't triggering anything.
  6. OK, I came up with a solution to my own problem which will likely be the best of both worlds. Setup my Cloud Pool to Pool Duplicate, also setup my HDD Pool to Pool Duplicate. Then use both the pools in the storage pool with no duplication as normal.
  7. I have a very similar setup. Look at the plugin, ordered file placement. Combine that with Prevent Drive overfill. So the hybrid pool places all my files on HDDs first with ordered drive placement, then, during re-balancing if the prevent drive overfill plugin sees that the HDDs are getting too full (past 95%) it unloads 20% of the files to the cloud pool (down to 75%). The cloud pool is set to evenly distribute files to the 2 cloud accounts... Each cloud account has a cache, so theoretically, they should go on the cache first and queue up for upload.... so this results in simultaneous uploads.
  8. Hi, This has likely been asked before, but I didn't find an answer with a quick scan of the forums. I have multiple HDDs pooled together making up a HDDPool. I also have two Cloud Drives making up a Cloud Pool. I combined both to make a Hybrid Storage Pool. Now, this is setup with zero duplication but I recently had a drive failure and I am also worried about potential cloud account closure or limitations in the future. So I have a third cloud drive that I would like to use for duplication... but ideally all three of my cloud drives would be used for duplication... So... do I add teh 3rd cloud drive to the Hybrid storage pool as a third drive and set it as duplication of storage, or is there a way I can add it to the cloud pool and get my cloud pool to share the load of the duplication for all the sub drives in the system. Essentially, I would like to be able to use the three cloud drives in conjunction to get better overall upload rate 3x 75Mbps instead of 2x 75Mbps and 1x 75Mbps for duplication. Thanks!
