    How to unmount Pool

    The need came from trying to get a autorun.inf file to work. I read that you needed to unplug/plug the device again for it to take effect. I then tried to unmount the DrivePool and found that even stopping the service would not help. To my surprise, even in Safe Mode, the DrivePool still gets mounted. This behaviour is done because DrivePool is being mounted directly by the DrivePool driver. There is no way to unmount the drive unless you reboot the system, if the driver does not support unmounting the drive itself While there is no "pressing" need to unmount my DrivePool

    How to unmount Pool

    That's just a way to select which pool you want to watch in the UI
  3. Hi, I'm running into an issue with having SSD Optimiser, real time duplication 3x, and only 2 SSDs. When writing files, they are written to an HDD, with the two duplicates into the SSDs. This renders the SSD Optimiser useless, since the speed of writes will be of the HDD. If disabling real time duplication, the duplication will only be run at 2AM (or time configured in the json file). That's not good, since the files will wait before being duplicated. There was an option named "FileDuplication_AlwaysRunImmediate" but it seems to be removed. The solution, in my mind,

    How to unmount Pool

    Hi, I cannot find a way to unmount the pool drive. Despite stopping the DrivePool service, the drive is still here. Is there a way to unmount the drive, in order to perform some tests that require the pool to be removed from the computer ?
  5. Metadata regained it's 3x after a reboot.
  6. Hi, One of the key things that made me dislike DrivePool in the first place was the lack of ability to have "drives" where I could store the data. When using Storage Spaces, I got separate drive letters, and I wanted to keep the setup I had. DriveBender allow this, due to having each mountpoint be a separate Disk (even showing up in Task Manager, one disk per mount point). After looking and testing, and despite a post on this forum, I think I found a solution. While the post is wrong about using subst, I found that by using the registery key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHIN
  7. I recently had the Settings.json file get corrupted after a system crash. Deleting it and restarting the DrivePool service will make a new one.
  8. Hi, While playing with duplication settings of my pool, I switched the pool duplication setting to 3x, from 2x. After reverting it to 2x, I was surprised to see that [METADATA] got set to 2x instead of the default 3x for metadata. In addition to that, the button to change the duplication settings for the metadata does nothing. How can I restore the metadata duplication to 3x ? I would even prefer to have it higher, since I have many disks. Letting us change it would be nice as well. Thanks !
