  1. Yeah that's what I do at the moment, but during the day I need all my internets for my business, but at night I would be happy for it to run wild and free!
  2. I really don't want to have to remember to pause and unpause every night - I would like to automate it to run overnight. But as the devs haven't replied I guess they are not allowing that for some reason. Shame as it's the one thing that would make this software perfect. Without it, it's just...ok...
  3. I guess that's a no then :-(
  4. Hi - I seem to remember that a way to schedule to uploading and downloading from the cloud (I used Google Drive) has been a request on the cards since 2016, has anything moved forward with this at all? Would be really helpful. Thanks
  5. Found a fix! Turns out if you make the folder that will hold the symlinks ON the Drivepool itself, then it works fine, if that folder is on a non-drivepooled drive it doesn't. I can then mount that folder containing simlinks as a network drive on another PC and then use it/access it as I wish. I'm using it in Plex to separate out kids movies easily. Even though this is solved I'll leave it up so others with this issues can find the workaround :-)
  6. Hi, I've been trying the below method to help with organizing my Media Library: 1) Create a folder on WHS2011 (either on a Drive included in the Drivepool or not, same issue), call it Kids Movies 2) Create simlink from each film you want to appear in that folder, I used a program called Link Shell Extension. 3) The "Kids Movie" folder now has a simlink to each Kids film, share the folder 4) On my W10 PC I map the Kids Movie folder to a Network Drive (although this isn't needed to see the problem) 5) Run the below comamnds in CMD in admin mode to allow sharing simlinks (I did this on WHS and W10 PC's): C:\Windows\system32>fsutil behavior query SymlinkEvaluation Local to local symbolic links are enabled. Local to remote symbolic links are enabled. Remote to local symbolic links are disabled. Remote to remote symbolic links are disabled. C:\Windows\system32>fsutil behavior set SymlinkEvaluation R2R:1 C:\Windows\system32>fsutil behavior query SymlinkEvaluation Local to local symbolic links are enabled. Local to remote symbolic links are enabled. Remote to local symbolic links are disabled. Remote to remote symbolic links are enabled. 6) I can open the Kids Movies folder on my W10 PC but if I try and open the simlink to a film, I get the error: "xyz is unavailable, if it's on a this PC please make sure it's connected, it may have been deleted" etc etc. I know the simlink CMD command was done correctly, because if it's not you get the message “The symbolic link cannot be followed because its type is disabled†EDIT: Running tests I have found that I can create a working symlink from a folder that is not part of the StableBit Drivepool, but if I try to create a symlink from a folder that is in the Drivepool, I get the error. Any suggestions as to why this isn't working? Thanks for the help :-)
  7. Thanks everyone for the info - fantastic :-) Now I just need to get my "new" server working!
  8. Hi, So your fresh install of WHS/DP happily saw the Pool on the drives you put in from another Server?
  9. Hi all, I currently have a 18.6TB Stablebit Drive Pool consisting of 6 drives running on WHS 2011 on a HP N40L Micro Server. I have run out of spaces for new disks and need more CPU power so will be putting together a dual Xeon tower server. The new Sever will have Proxmox running a VM of WHS 2011 on an SSD (rather than on the very old 120gb hdd in the N40L). What is the easiest way to move the pool/files over to the new PC. 1) Do a fresh install of WHS 2011 & Stablebit Drivepool, then remove one drive from the N40L, install in Xeon Server, make new pool, copy as many files as possible, repeat till all drives are done - very time intensive! 2) Fresh install of WHS/DP - move all drives over, would Drivepool see the existing pool and use it so I don't need to copy any files over? 3) Clone WHS (inc DP & any other software obviously) from the old 120gb drive into the new VM and then move all drives over, would Drivepool see the existing pool and use it so I don't need to copy any files over? If anyone has done this sort of thing before or has any input please let me know. My number one concern is obviously not losing any files, but I also want to make sure I do it the best way to be time efficient! Thanks for the help :-)
  10. Hi - just wanted to make sure you'd received my ticket and files as I've not heard anything. Thanks :-)
  11. Hi, Well, I had a problem last week and CloudDrive stopped working, so as I rebooted my WHS 2011 server and now Cloud drive wont play nice. If I try and start the Stablebit Cloudrive program it just says (for hours & hours) "Starting service" Version 1.0.0.631_x64_Beta The services are running (Notifications, Service, Native.exe & UI) Rebooting the server doesn't make any difference, it still has the same problem. Any ideas? Thanks
  12. Just a little update. Looking at the services that are running, it looks like Clouddrive needs Clouddrive.Service.exe but there is also a Clouddrive.Service.Native.exe *32. This is the one that, when stopped, allows CloudDrive to start up and perform a recovery. But after a few minutes into recovery that Native *32 service starts up again although everything seems to be working ok. Every time the Server reboots this causes the same problems as described above. I did install the x64 version of ClouDDrive so not sure if that's an error or not?
  13. Welp, after solving the last issue with limiting upload speed to stop WHS freezing, today I notice that the CloudDrive program just says "Starting Service (5 hours)". Things I've tried: Rebooting the server *which runs WHS 2011, all up to date Reinstalling CloudDrive Repairing CloudDrive Stopping the service manually and restarting it Nothing I do is getting the program to see the service...which is running btw. I have the latest CloudDrive 1.1.1.624 Beta version. I was two days through (what looked like) a four day backup of stuff, all going well till this :-( Any ideas Thanks guys
  14. Update! It's fixed. I limited the upload speed to slightly less than my internet upload speed and it's happily chugged away all night. So the upshot of this is, I don't need a 3TB drive as a cache drive (it'll never get used) as the real limiting factor seems to be memory! In 4 days when this lot is uplloaded I'll switch back to a much smaller cache drive somewhere and make better use of that 3TB! Thanks :-)
