  1. Okay, I solved the mystery - and it was a mystery. A friend had set-up a task to run every hour that ran ran robocopy to sync the folder to the new cloud drive and I wasn't aware of that. So it wasn't something I had stumbled onto with either clouddrive or drivepool. I tried to delete this post, but couldn't find out how to.
  2. And I just today read about balancers in drive pool so that's not what I did to make this work either because I had never explored that part of the program. I might have added a new pool for the cloud drive, but I didn't join the two in anyway I'm pretty sure.
  3. I am a complete noob and forgetful on top of everything. I've had one pool for a long time and last week I tried to add a new pool using clouddrive. I added my six 1TB onedrive accounts in cloudpool and I may or may not have set them up in drivepool (that's my memory for you). But whatever I did was not use drivepool to combine all six clouddrives into a single 6TB drive and I ran out of space something was duplicating data from one specific folder in my pool to the clouddrive. So I removed the clouddrive accounts, added them back, and did use drivepool to combine the six accounts into one drive. And without doing anything else, data from the one folder I had and want duplicated to the clouddrive started duplicating again - but I don't know how and I'd like to know how I did that. I've read nested pools, hierarchy duplication topics but I'm sure that's not something I set-up because it would have been too complicated for me. Is there another, simpler way that I might have made this happen? I know this isn't much information to go on and I don't expect anyone to dedicate a lot of time to this, but I've spent yesterday and today trying to figure out what I did and I just can't. I've checked folder duplication under the original pool, and the folder is 1x because I don't want it duplicated on the same pool so I assume that's not what I did.
  4. So if I have all of the drives of a pool from one computer to a new computer and install Drivepool on the new computer - it will create the old pool automatically? At least that's the way I read this. Does this work if there are already existing pools created on the new computer? Thank you.

    Using Snapraid

    Found this in case it helps anyone else - http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q4142489 Sounds like it wouldn't be best just to copy a lot of data from the pooled drives that's outside of the poolpart folder into the poolpart folder without stopping the service first and then resetting settings.

    Using Snapraid

    I started using drivepool today and found it very easy - no problems yet. But I do have two questions for those more informed than I am. 1) I'm also going to use snapraid and I assume when I configure that, I add the individual data drives to it and never the pool drive created by drivepool? 2) I have five-drives with existing media on each drive that I added to the pool. Would it be best to copy the media to the new drive (which might take a while) or can I just copy the media from each drive into the poolpart folder on each drive? There is one root folder \media and two sub-folders \media\movies \media\tv which show up in one poolpart folder so if I re-create those on each data drive, would that case a problem? Thank you for any suggestions and information.
