    Empty folders

    Ah OK, thanks!

    Empty folders

    Hallo, is it normal that there are Empty folders everywhere in my Pool? The folders are correct but It looks like the balancer were moving the files to another disc and leaving empty folders behind.
  3. I'm not using the Cloud version but the hint withe the JASON I will try next time. Thanks.
  4. That's what I would like to do too, my OS on a M2 drive :-) I keep my fingers crossed for your installation. @Christopher (Drashna): Would be nice to save the settings from PoolDrive like it is for the scanner possible.
  5. If you have set up the file placement to put a specific folder on a specific drive it should work. I wouldn't use the Ordered File Placement Plugin for this because it seems that this Plugin is for a general order priority for drives (will fill on drive after another with all the files are coming in). The file placement I marked should do what you want.
  6. Hi Glauco I just changed my Server from WHS 2011 to Win 10 with deleting from my OS drive the old partitions and installing Win10 frech from an USB Stick. The drives with my data which were in a Pool I disconnected in this time. Afterwards I installed DrivePool new on the new OS, switched the PC of and connected the data drives. after starting Win 10 I looked in DrivePool and the Pool was there. It worked with my Backup Pool too. Only the drive letter was changed. You only have to install DrivePoll and connect all your Pool drives. DrivePool scannes the drives and will find the information it needs.
  7. On the main setting side of the balancer you can set if the balancer is starting at a specific time or if a certain amount of data has to be moved. I have set my SSD to 600 GB as example. If there is not the need to move 600 GB the data will stay on the SSD.

    DrivePool and Backup

    Thanks for your answers. I saw that my sync software watches after files and folders. Checking a folder I saw that it has ecerywhere the same timestamp and on one place not but there was a timestamp from today and the problem was there before too. My setup is PoolDrive Z:Data and Y:Backup. Allwaysync makes the sync oneway from Z to Y. The folder structure is synced too. Y: lookes the same as Z: + a hidden folder for the file history in every folder. Empty folders I found but have to check if this happens continuously. For the folder I checked because the files shouldn't go to the history in my backup there where no empty folders. I think I have to do a lot of testing and see what happens. FreeFileSync I didn't use for a long time maybe I will have a try on this now since it looks much better now. Bu I think booth programs should do the same. I'm thinking too to use a backup software like snapraid, do you have any experience with this?
  9. Hi, For Backups I use Allwaysync withn Versioning. The Backup goes to Pool which HDDs are in case that is connected with USB to the Server. The Server has the Pool with the original Data. Since a long time I have enabled the duplication of the most important folders. Every thing seemed to be OK with the Backup. This days I switched on the duplication for all folders and I have changed one HDD. The balancing was moving a lot of files arround and now the duplication is doing his job. What I see in the Backup is, that in the versioning there are being files copied in which I havend changed. This makes my Backup Pool extremly full. Normally Allwaysync will only do a copy of files which are new or have been changed. Can it be that the duplicated files will goe to my backup Pool too? I don't think so because the duplications are actually new files and schouldn't go to the versioning.ยด but I'm not sure. maybe it's the balancing which lets Allwaysync think the files have been changed but if it is so why? The files have an old time stamp for the last change. Did anybody have this issue too? How are you doing Backups? Thanks for your help.
  10. @Shane Can you change the title of this thread in "DrivePool and SSD combinations" I think that would fix better to the subject, thanks. Not needed anymore. With holfing the right mouse button on the title I was able to change it by myself. Didn't see that feature before and found it now by chance.
  11. Thanks for your answers. This are the answers from t he costumer service. I post them here because others may have the same questions an will find this answers helpfull too: question 1: Is the duplication working with having one SSD-drive set for cache. Is DrivePool writing the files to the cache SSD-drive and a duplication to the HDDs in the Archive? answer: Yes, but if you have duplication enabled, and don't have two SSDs, then yeah, it's falling back to using one of the HDDs. question 2: How is the reading of this files, is DrivePool reading the files on the cache SSD-drive first if they are still there or will the duplication on the HDD slow it down? answer: if the files are duplicated, then it has a number of checks to optimize the reads, if read striping is enabled. You can read about this here: https://stablebit.com/Support/DrivePool/2.X/Manual?Section=Performance Options#Read Striping question 3: Would it be better to have two SSD enabled in the SSD Optimizer as SSDs to get for the files which are actually in the cach the duplication in the cache too, would this work? answer: Yes. Ideally. question 4: If I use two SSDs in the cache how do I set them? Together in a subpool? Or adding them simple to the main pool and set them both as SSD? answer: Just add both to the pool, and enable them as "ssd"s in the SSD Optimizer balancers. question 5: Would it maybe a better solution to get one SSD in the pool and not enable it as SSD-drive in the "SSD Optimizer" to use it as archive with file placement rules for my most used files? answer: Honestly, either works, but it depends on what you want in your setup. question 6: If I try it like in 5. how is it with the duplication would DrivePool read the files from the fast SSD or the slower HDD? Maybe the slow HDD makes the SSD slow too? answer: It should generally use the SSD, unless it's busy, basically. The nice think is DrivePool is working how I thought it should be working :-) I ordered now another 1 TB SSD and will set both of my 1TB SSD in the optimizer as SSD. For my enabled duplication that should work best like the answer in question 3 says this is ideally. I will double my RAM to 16 GB too and keep my old CPU ans Mainboard.
  12. Yes I was only setting one drive as SSD cache. In the moment I have changed my setting to find out what is working how with DrivePool. Maybe I write my questions here too and you can have a look. My questions: 1. Is the duplication working with having one SSD-drive set for cache. Is DrivePool writing the files to the cache SSD-drive and a duplication to the HDDs in the Archive? 2. How is the reading of this files, is DrivePool reading the files on the cache SSD-drive first if they are still there or will the duplication on the HDD slow it down? 3. Would it be better to have two SSD enabled in the SSD Optimizer as SSDs to get for the files which are actually in the cach the duplication in the cache too, would this work? 4. If I use two SSDs in the cache how do I set them? Together in a subpool? Or adding them simple to the main pool and set them both as SSD? 5. Would it maybe a better solution to get one SSD in the pool and not enable it as SSD-drive in the "SSD Optimizer" to use it as archive with file placement rules for my most used files? 6. If I try it like in 5. how is it with the duplication would DrivePool read the files from the fast SSD or the slower HDD? Maybe the slow HDD makes the SSD slow too?
  13. Thanks Shane for your answer and help. My settings you can the in the screenshot. If I understood you right it should be the correct way, that the "file placement rules" are not override the the SSD Optimizer. What I don't undertand is why my SSD in the archive (with file placement to it and not set in the optimizer as SSD) and the Cache SSD (set as SSD in the optimizer) don't get new files which should be there. They remained empty. For A few minutes I was writing a support ticket because I can't find anythink in the documentation and in the forum what makes my questions clear. Can you help me with that ticket?
  14. Thanks for your help. It seems we have realy a bit of an language problem. I'm using drivepool now since a few yours but never used folder placement or SSD Optimizer before. Good do read that the SSD Cache is working. For me it wasn't working at all. I will test a bit and write to the support.
  15. Hmm I see I mixed my questions about Archive SSD and Cache SSD :-( Maybe I wrote it not good enough. That the Cache is completely emptied, that's how I understand drivepool is working. Thge probelm now is that both SSD Archive and Cache are staying empty: For the Archive SSD I set the folder placement for only a few folders but they are not placed to the Archice SSD. Maybe it has a completly other reason because the SSDs are empty: Duplication. If I have enabled the duplication and have only 1 SSD as cache is that working? I thought DrivePool is moving the duplikated files to the archiv and let the main files in the cache till it is emptied. Maybe I'm wrong and I need two SSD in the cache. Maybe the Archive SSD has the same problem and can't make a dublication on an Archive HDD but this would be strange. In the screenshot *003 the both last drives are my SSDs. The Daten-6 is my Archive SSD. I read a lot now in the Forum and I have the feeling I should do this: - add another 1 TB SSD in my Server - remove the cache SSD from my pool - create a pool of both SSDs - add the new poot to the existing pool - mark the subpool as SSD in the SSD optimizer
