Less than one month into using DP on OWC Thunderbay 6 drive DAS (84T) for single pool, I am getting a "duplication inconsistent" message. On earlier threads about this issue, I see a recommendation to set "Automatically resolve file duplication mismatches" on but I am unable to find that option in the DP interface - can someone point this out for me? Any other suggestions to deal with this problem? Thanks in advance.
I'm a newbie here... having parity issues using Windows Storage Spaces with my external DAS (OWC Thunderbay 6 with 72Tb) that I cannot resolve. Intend to backup and consider using Drivepool as better solution to create 72Tb pool for my large Video/Photo library. I have 2 concerns re: Drivepool vs. Storage Spaces before I decide: I used parity with Storage Spaces to emulate the protection offered by RAID 5, but understand there is no parity option for Drivepool. Would file duplication provide a comparable degree of protection from bad drives in the future? I do video/photo editing from an XPS15 laptop via Thunderbolt 3 connection to DAS and speeds with Storage Spaces were not always good - will Drivepool be comparable better, or worse in doing intensive I/O work from an external pool? Thanks in advance for your expertise.
