  1. It went well! It's all up and running!!!! Thank you all!
  2. Thanks! My computer is just reinstalling! And I didn't disconnect my drives, as they are internal to my tower. I don't think windows will install anything on them, beucause they are in my RAID interface, and the system is in a M2 drive. Anyway, I'll pray... rssss
  3. Ok, good to know! Where are the config files so I can back them up? Just to make sure I'm gonna do everything right, all I have to do is backup the config files, format my PC without touching my pool drives, reinstall windows, reinstall drivepool, restore my config file and everything will be back up and running, right? Thanks!
  4. Hi everyone. I'm planning to format my PC, and I was wondering what I should do to rebuild my drive pool after reinstalling windows. Thanks
  5. Oh, I get it! So, those files I'm seeing being accessed are those that are being backed up by CrashPlan! Makes sense! Thank you again and sorry for all the questions. I guess everything is OK now. I'll star a duplication check to make sure everything is duplicated. Regards and happy new year!
  6. Thank you Shane, once again. Good to know everything is going ok. Now, I think it seems to be still duplicationg my files. Those files that show up under Disk Performance are my files I want to be duplicated, and I see them poping up there. But on the progress bar where it reads Pool Organization, I don't see any percentage. As a matter of fact, it was showing before. It was around 10% completion, but I had to hot unplug my SSD. When I did that, DP detected there was a drive missing, and stopped duplicating. When I plugged it back, it took a while, but instead of going back to the ye
  7. So, after a while, I think everything is going on correctly. Is it possible to know what DP is doing? It seems it's duplicating my files. I just wanted to know if it's really happening, and maybe a progress bar or something where I can see when it's going to finish. Another question. Is there a reason why my write speed is so slow? If you look at Disk Performance, it's writing at 15kb/s. Is it normal? Thanks
  8. Same problem here. I can enable logging, if it helps.
  9. Shane, I don't know why, but my computer rebooted last night by itself. When I logged in today and checked DP, it's duplicating my files. Let's wait and see what happens. Thank you!
  10. So, I've finally installed my DrivePool, copied everything to it, deleted my RAID10 and added all the drives to my pool. After that, I set a folder to be duplicated 3x. It started re-balancing and duplicating my files, but now, DP is stopped (nothing is happening) and it shows on the Duplication Organization bar (which is yellow with the progress bar in the middle) the message Duplication Inconsistence. I've tried to re-balance and re-check duplication, but still nothing. As a reminder, my scenario was: I had a RAID10 with 4 discs and 5.6TB of data. I installed two new 4TB drives to
  11. Thanks you Shane! I'll do that! I already have a M2 on my computer as my C: drive. It has my S.O. and my applications on it. It's pretty fast already, but on top of that, I already have Primo Cache. In this scenario, I don't think it would be good to add my SSD, which is much slower then my M2 to my system and use it as a cache to my applications. I think it would slow down my system. Would you agree? I guess my best shot is to add the SSD, make it a cache to my DP (taking into account everything that has been said) and use PrimoCache to cache Read/Write to my DP, right?
  12. gtaus, thank you very much for all your explanation and time. I don't have a single file that is 200GB. My files are around 70MB each, but summing all photos will end up with ~200GB. I'll definitely install my SSD and set it as a cache. Regarding Primo Cache, I already use it. As a matter of fact, I used to use it with my RAID10, so I could increase my performance a little bit. Good to know I can use it with DP. I'll do it, for sure! Thank you again.
  13. Thank you all for your replies. Even though I'm using it at home, I do have concerns about losing my data. I'm a wedding photographer, and I can't afford to lose my clients' photos. That's why I have a RAID10 and my backups (external HDDs and Crashplan to back up everything). Now, I have more questions about speeding things up using an SSD. I do have a spare 128TB SSD laying around. I don't have any more ports on my motherboard to connect it, though. I have an HDD docker that I can connect up to two HDDs via USB. So, I have a few options, but I need to understand how it'll work before mak
  14. Hi everyone. I have a desktop running Windows 10 Enterprise Edition and a motherboard that accepts up to 6 HDD. I have installed initially 4 HDD (1x3TB and 3x4TB) in RAID10. The RAID was created in the BIOS and then set up with Intel RST. I know I'm restricted by my 3TB HDD, but it's an old drive from the initial setup, and I'm waiting for it to fail to buy a 4TB new one to replace it. Anyway, My RAID is almost full, and I need to expand it. I bought two new 4TB drives and installed them on my system, but when I tried to increase my RAID with these two new drivers, I found out that I can
