  1. Today I updated my StableBit Scanner 2.5.1.3062 to 2.5.6.3336. My Settings and Automatic Scanning are just gone from the top of the application. I rebooted but no difference. What should I do? (I've blanked out my computer name in this screen shot snippet.)
  2. For some time now, maybe a few weeks or maybe a couple months, I have been unable to update my nest or even create a new nest. I have run BitFlock_1_0_0_547U.exe on multiple machines, even fresh installations, and every one of them comes back with: "There was an error updating your nest on the server." I believe this problem has been further compounded, when it comes to how the StableBit Scanner connects to Bitflock.com. StableBit Scanner is constantly is telling me: "S.M.A.R.T. Failure" "One or more disks are expected to fail within 24 hours." When it believes one of my drives is about to fail, Reallocated Sectors Count is outside the normal range for the specified drive. The value for Reallocated Sectors Count is always zero. After opening the Smart settings for the drive in question and looking at the values for a bit, StableBit Scanner will update its assessment and magically the zero value is back in the normal range for the drive. This is happening periodically across all my drives. I believe my StableBit Scanner issues in the same as http://community.covecube.com/index.php?/topic/219-periodic-smart-info-warning/ but I have completely different drives that didn't give me problems 2 months ago. I feel the issues with StableBit Scanner are ultimately issues with BitFlock.com I have clicked the Update button at the bottom of Smart window, it does update the data, and returns the status to normal. I have also submitted to Bitflock.com for analysis and that was sucessful as well. Its given me an ID that I don't have a password to and therefore cannot check. I have done these steps and still, a few minutes later, the popup message will show up again for another drive on my machine. When I run BitFlock_1_0_0_547U.exe /offlinesave it scans, I'm able to specify where to safe the file, and then the program errors. Update: I have run your BitFlock_1_0_0_547U.exe tool on 4 machine now. 3 out of the 4 machines work successfully! I even have the same 4TB Seagate NAS drives in two of the other machines and they never give me false failure warning. Only the machine above seems to have issue services.
  3. I have recently setup a machine running Windows 7 x64. The OS is completely encrypted with TrueCrypt. Because DrivePool doesn't play well with TrueCrypt mounted volumes, I'm using DiskCryptor to encrypt all the remaining drives. DiskCryptor decrypts the drives in-place. So a drive mapped to K: that was seen as raw/unformatted magically turns into a NTFS drive once I've mounted the drive using DiskCryptor. This two prong solution works great with Both StableBit Scanner and DrivePool. The only caveat is that I changed both StableBit services to manual so I am able to start then AFTER I mount the DiskCryptor drives. Because I wanted your Stablebit Scanner software to scan all the drives I've only rebooted the machine a few times. The machine was scanning the drives just fine yesterday. When I checked on the machine today the account had locked. Thats pretty standard so I unlocked the account and the StableBit Scanner software had the prompt about: You license needs to be transferred to this computer (You should probably be a Your) and a button stating "Start license transfer..." I had seen this once before on the StableBit Scanner and had gone through the steps without thinking. This time I also went through the steps on the StableBit Scanner without too much thought. Upon completion the StableBit Scanner looked to be working normally and all the drives had finished scanning probably last night. I hadn't messed with the DrivePool software on this boot since I was waiting for the Scanner to finish it scans. I started the DrivePool service and opened the DrivePool UI and was given the same prompt: You license needs to be transferred to this computer and a button stating "Start license transfer..." I'm not sure what part of the hardware you link your licensing to, but I haven't physically changed any parts in this machine since I setup the software this past weekend. I have another machine with DiskCryptor and DrivePool and haven't seen this repeating occurrence at all. My goal with this machine is to set I up and forget about it. I won't have the convenience of logging into it on any sort of regular basis. So, are these prompts happening because I've used TrueCrypt to encrypt the OS drive? The ultimate question, is your software going to continue to work as intended while it thinks I need to transfer the license? Or is all functionality going to cease until the issue is addressed. If the functionality ceases until the issue is addressed, then your software will not work for the unmanaged scenario I have in place.
  4. Yes, I want the Scanner to scan all the drives at the same time. I am running Windows 7 and using the latest Stable version of the Scanner v. 2.4.0.2928 I haven't adjusted the throttling settings, but the options sound to me like if they are checked they will do the exact opposite of what i am wanting. This is my current settings:
  5. I've recently setup a new server using a SuperMicro X10SAE workstation motherboard. It has a Xeon E3-1225 v3 Haswell Chip with graphics. I have the OS in a mirror RAID so I've had to turn the onboard SATA controller from AHCI to RAID. I ran DirectIoTest-1_0_5016_597.exe to get the following on SATA drives connected to the Intel RAID controller: With Unsafe Direct I/O unchecked StableBit Scanner - WMI SMART Status: Yes SMART Attributes: Yes SMART Thresholds: Yes SMART Error Log: No Power Mode: No StableBit Scanner - Direct I/O Methods: AtaPassThrough,Smartloctl Identify: Yes SDD: Yes SMART Status: Yes SMART Attributes: Yes SMART Thresholds: Yes SMART Error Log: Yes Power Mode: No With Unsafe Direct I/O checked StableBit Scanner - WMI SMART Status: Yes SMART Attributes: Yes SMART Thresholds: Yes SMART Error Log: No Power Mode: No StableBit Scanner - Direct I/O Methods: ScsiMiniportClassDriver,Smartloctl,AtaPassThrough,ScsiPassthrough,ScsiPassthrough48 Identify: Yes SDD: Yes SMART Status: Yes SMART Attributes: Yes SMART Thresholds: Yes SMART Error Log: Yes Power Mode: Yes Everything is working great except for the fact it will NOT scan the attached drives concurrently. I have 6 drives connected to the SATA RAID controller. One mirror pair and 4x 4TB ST4000VN000. When one of these drives is being scanned the others' status is just "Waiting to Scan" I've gone ahead and downloaded the Scanner.Service.exe.config from a previous recommended post and that made no difference. Since then I've made the following changes, but to no avail. I've rebooted after the change and It seems to make no difference. <setting name="DirectIOOverride" serializeAs="String"> <value>True</value> </setting> <setting name="Scanner_ScanWithDirectIo" serializeAs="String"> <value>True</value> </setting> <setting name="Scanner_DirectIoScanMaximumConcurrent" serializeAs="String"> <value>6</value> </setting> <userSettings> <CoveNativeSafe.My.MySettings> <setting name="UnsafeDirectIo" serializeAs="String"> <value>True</value> </setting> </CoveNativeSafe.My.MySettings> </userSettings> Windows shows the disks attached to the Intel RAID controller as ATA ST4000VN000-1H41 SCSI Disk Device.How can I get the scanner software to concurrently scan my drives when attached to what it thinks is a SCSI controller?
  6. Ah, I see one of my mistakes. When I updated Scanner.Service.exe.config_default I didn't change the extension to just ".config" I placed a the Scanner.Service.exe.config from the download link you provided into the C:\Program Files (x86)\StableBit\Scanner\Service folder and restarted the machine. When I look at Disk Details... on a "SCSI Disk Drive" I get a lot more data now!!! At present I have the 92xx controller running in Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller as the driver, but I've left the onboard 91xx driver in place since I'm using a port multiplier. The 4x Seagate NAS drives connected to the 92xx are all able to scan, but only one of the 5x Seagate Barracuda LP drives is scanning at a time. This is actually probably ideal since all the 5x Seagate Barracuda LP drives are actually sharing only one eSATA cable.
  7. I have an Asus P8P67-M Pro motherboard which has an Intel P67 Express Chipset that is providing me with 4x SATA II (3.0Gbps), 2x SATA III (6.0 Gbps). The motherboard also has a Marvell 88SE9172 chip providing me with 1x SATA III (6.0 Gbps) and 1x eSATA III (6.0 Gbps) ports. I've installed a SYBA SI-PEX40062 which has 88SE9235 chip via one of the PCIe slots which is providing me with 4x SATA III (6.0 Gbps) ports. When it comes to drivers, the Marvell driver that supports both 88SE9172 and 88SE9235 reduce the name of the devices to Marvell 91xx SATA 6G Controller and Marvell 92xx SATA 6G Controller respectively. Initially I didn't have anything plugged into the Motherboard's 88SE9172 ports. I originally installed and ran your StableBit Scanner software with the Marvell 88SE9235 driver set to the windows default built in driver (Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller). Everything worked great and the scanning started on all drives. I could even go to each drive's Disk Details and see the drive's max connection rate and the ports maximum connection rate. I then decided to update both Marvell drivers to the latest 1.2.0.1039 and connect even more drives. Both Marvell chips use the same driver. After a restart or two I went back to using your StableBit Scanner to continue scanning my drives, but now only one drive on either Marvell chip will scan while the others say Waiting to Scan. If I go the the Disk Details, only an overview is available for the drives connected to the Marvell chips. I now presently have 4x Seagate NAS (ST4000VN000-1H4168) on the 88SE9235. I now presently have 5x Seagate Barracuda LP (ST32000542AS) on the 88SE9172 eSATA connection via an external 5 bay port multiplier (SiI3826 maybe). I now presently have 4x Seagate Barracuda (ST3000DM001-1CH166) on the P67 Intel chipset. I've gone ahead and downloaded your DirectIoTest-1_0_5016_597 and run it. Using one of the ST4000VN000 and having the Unsafe Direct I/O UNCHECKED using Marvell 92xx SATA 6G Controller driver StableBit Scanner - WMI SMART Status: Yes SMART Attributes: Yes SMART Thresholds: Yes SMART Error Log: No Power Mode: No StableBit Scanner - Direct I/O Methods: (Nothing.

If I forget to stop the StableBit Scanner from scanning and I select a disk from the Direct I/O test utility it will just get stuck Querying Disk... and I'll have to close the app and reopen it AFTER I stop scanning drives. I've even stopped the ScannerService and modified the Scanner.Service.exe.config_default lines to: <CoveNativeSafe.My.MySettings> <setting name="UnsafeDirectIo" serializeAs="String"> <value>True</value> </setting> </CoveNativeSafe.My.MySettings> without result. One last note... When I installed both StableBit Scanner and StableBit DrivePool I specified a directory of C:\Drives\StableBit\ and both applications ignored that and installed into Program Files instead. So, how do I get this great functionality with the Marvell Driver installed? Happy to provide additional info and pics if requested.
