  1. I have been running for a while now with no duplication, all 4 of my pooled disks on one pcie sata controller card and have replaced all 4 of the disks with larger disks and have enabled duplication. I was wondering if there is a performance advantage to splitting the drives across the separate pcie controller and the MB sata ports, (2 drives on separate 4 port sata card and 2 on the MB's sata card) ?
  2. So today I added two 120GB SSD's to my system. I added them to my pool, selected them as SSD drives, turned off all of the other balancers, yet when I copy files to my drivepool, I can watch in the Drivepool interface, the files just copy to my archive drives and never even touch the SSD's? Update: I think I got this working, I had removed the drive letters from the drives in Disk Management and after giving them a drive letter , it seems to be working. I did have another question though, I dont like to have a lot of drive letter cluttering up my explorer, so I created a pool with the 2 s
  3. @exterrestris hey, so I got a couple extra ssd's, just wondering the advantages of making them there own pool, but more specifically, making them part of the main pool, why not just leave them out of the main pool?
  4. So, i setup the snapraid-runner powershell script today, however I am getting a couple weird errors, and was hoping someone who has used this would have any idea how to fix it. First error is this, it still runs, just wondering what variable or whatever is not set to give me this error: Does anyone else use this, or have any idea what these errors mean?

    Missing .covefs

    I noticed during my first snapraid sync that i got the warnings about the .covefs directory on 3 out of my 4 drives, so I peeked into the poolpart directory that did not give a warning and noticed the hidden .covefs folder is missing, is this ok?
  6. So I ran snapraid sync for the first time today, and i was a little troubled with the output, I thought the information in the poolpart directories is what is was supposed to be protecting, the output below seems to show its going to ignore those directories, does this look normal for a first sync? Also, not sure why it didn't ignore the special system poolpart directory on d3? Loading state from Q:/snapraidmounts/Data/d3/snapraid.content... WARNING!

    Content Files

    Just wondering if you can also put the content files in mount points, possibly the same drives you created mount points for the data disks? Like for example, would this work? In this example, the parity drive is its own drive, I am just mounting it to the same drive as the data drive mounts. # Example configuration for snapraid for Windows # Defines the file to use as parity storage # It must NOT be in a data disk # Format: "parity FILE [,FILE] ..." parity Q:\snapraidmounts\Parity\p1\snapraid.parity # Defines the files to use as additional parity storage. # If specified,
  8. @exterrestris Thank you again for the very well explained answer, this should be a breeze. Appreciate the time typing up such a well explained setup.
  9. Thank you for the amazing and thorough write up, it is thoroughly appreciated, I think I understand all of this, it seems pretty straight forward. Any chance you could post your snapraid.conf file, I would like to see what one looks like with a setup like this? I am also guessing I should have all by balancers unchecked except the SSD and the StableBit Scanner? With them all turned off Drivepool with just equally fill up each drive as files are copied to it by default, correct, which is the behaviour I want, I do not want any duplication across my main pool, as I will have snapraid, and I have

  11. So I am very familiar with using mergerfs and snapraid, just moved my media center from an OMV with unionfs and snapraid setup back to windows. I have drivepool setup with 4 x 4tb hard drives working perfectly. I will be adding a 5tb parity drive and setting up snapraid any day now, just waiting for my drive to get here. In the meantime I do have a backblaze backup and an local backup. My question is, I do not want to have each drive in the pool have to have a drive letter, so can anyone tell me if there is a different way to do this in windows? The plugin for OMV , kinda took care of the pari
