  1. Hi I keep getting a notification saying an update is available. When I click on Install update I get an error "the system cannot find the file specified". See attached screen grab. I tried installing via downloading the latest beta from the website, but the latest (apparently 1277) is not available - only 1244 which is already installed. Any tips on getting past this error condition please? E
  2. Thanks guys I plucked up the courage and went to beta on all apps and connected to the new cloud thing. Looking good!
  3. Thanks Tim, I'll go to beta on Scanner and probably CloudDrive. Reluctant to go to Beta on DrivePool as it contains live data.
  4. Trying to sign up for StableBit Cloud (thanks for the invite). I have 3 licenced StableBit apps (DrivePool, CloudDrive & CloudDrive) but can't see the cloud icon in any of these apps. I have latest stable versions installed. Do I need to be on the Beta channel for the underlying apps to sign up for StableBit Cloud? Thanks
  5. Resurrecting an old thread - hope ok. Is dedup still on the roadmap?
  6. I initially did the simple take ownership process (cross referenced above in this thread) and that worked for a while but then I started getting similar access denied errors. When I did the full process (as mentioned here: https://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q5510455) on the DP drive itself it worked. Few notes: 1. Important to do on the DP drive itself (not a folder within the drive). 2. Seems important to delete the erroneous/existing elements in the permissions tab and then add back in the default permissions (Administrators, SYSTEM etc). 3. The new permiss
  7. Hi @vrcsix I'm still struggling to reach a conclusion on this sadly. I opened a ticket regarding the child poolparts not appearing on the underlying HDDs and Christopher (at support) came back and said: ______ _____ However, before I could start 'seeding', I ran into a 'permissions' error state which Christopher helped me out by pointing out the following link: https://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q5510455 I've now done that and still only see partial poolparts so I will need to do the 'seeding' mentioned but it is not clear how. So
  8. Well I deleted the parent pool (which I had called HybridPool) which contained LocalPool which itself did contain 4 real HDDs all of which contains the relevant poolparts for LocalPool. I then rebooted and created HybridPool again and only added LocalPool (skipping CloudPool for now). Now the relevant child poolparts (created by the creation of HybridPool) are only seen in 2 of the 4 real HDDs. So something screwy happening here. I'll ask Christopher via a ticket for his assistance. I had hoped to get this wrapped up now, but will have to wait for Christopher's timelime (I know h
  9. Hi srcrist I took yesterday (Dec 25th) off, but now coming back to this. Thanks for your patience. So conceptually I think I have this. Stop the drivepool service, move (within each pooled drive) all folders/files I have at the same level as the first poolpart folder into the child poolpart folder, restart drivepool service. Change drive letters etc. Small issue however, one of the pooled drives (drive F: in image below) does not show the child poolpart folder. Am confused. Any ideas? Cheers
  10. Thanks again for your valuable input srcrist. Hmm, yes after I posted I did imagine I would need to move data around and likely it would involve poolparts. I certainly did see various poolparts being created. I'll need to drill down and make sure I do it correctly as I would hate to move things around and inadvertently delete things. In the community post you mentioned there is a link to some additional help (see here) which I will also digest. I'm also wondering if after I move folders/data around the relevant shares will move as well? Also there are various apps that poi
  11. Well I gave this a go and hit a brick wall as the parent pool, containing my local and cloud pools, do not 'see' the folders/files in the local pool. Specifically I following the walk through examples mentioned here: https://blog.covecube.com/2017/09/stablebit-drivepool-2-2-0-847-beta/ When I try do folder duplication (or the relevant balancing) all I get are the hidden folders and not any of the folders within my LocalPool. This is contrary to what I expected in the walk through examples mentioned in the above link. Here is what I'm getting: This is what my LocalPo
  12. Thanks again srcrist. I'll have a look at nested pools and see what they provide. To be clear I don't want to have a copy of all my local data in the cloud, only a subset of data, important data that is critical to survive a local disaster (fire, theft etc) . Maybe in time I will mirror all local data in the cloud, but for now cloud expense counts against that.
  13. Cheers srcrist, much appreciated. So I will destroy the existing clouddrives and start again. I will then use the same key for the newly formed cloud drives. Just created a new test cloudrive with encrption and that worked just fine. I also added that new test clouddrive to the existing (clouddrive) non encrypted drivepool and that also seem to have worked. But I will encrypt all cloud stuff once I recreate the drives. Edward
  14. As per title. I have various Cloud Drives based on OneDrive. I did not enable encryption when I first created the CDs assuming I can enable later on given that encryption works on the data not on the container. I guess it is not programmed that way and I will need destroy all CDs, re-create them and re-upload all data? But asking just in case I can avoid this headache. On a related note do I have to provide the same H key to all the clouddrives? I have them pooled into a DrivePool. Cheers
