  1. All good. I'll figure something out. Want to be sure it's DP before taking up their time.
  2. Do you know of a log file I can grab that might shed some light on this? I am working of recreating the problem with a small(er) folder from the drivepool.
  3. I copied files to a USB drive and had Lightroom scan it, Lightroom did not jump to C: or D:. Does it seem like an issue with DP?
  4. I think my reply to Spider99 covers what you offered here. I didn't use a USB drive, I just copied some folders to other drives, 1 from the pooled drives and D: which is in the laptop itself. Lightroom didn't jump when scanning those 2 drives. thx
  5. No symlinks or hardlinks that I know of. I could try usb in a few days. I did copy a largish folder from the DrivePool Z: to one of the pooled drives and let Lightroom scan it, it didn't try to scan C: or D:. I have also copied a large folder to D: and Lightroom scanned that with no problems, not jumping to C: or D:. So, does it sound like a DP issue? So when LR scans the DP drive, Z: it jumps to C: and D:, (2) physical drives in the laptop. But when scanning on D: selectively it does fine. Also when scanning on 1 of the pooled drives it does fine. Make sense? Tha
  6. Thanks. I tried to guess at your meaning. I changed one PoolPart from hidden to not hidden. At least I started to. I was going to let Lightroom scan it once unhidden. It was going to take hours to change, so I cancelled it. Now it's going to take hours to change it back to hidden. Anyway, all of the drives are visible with drive letters. So I guess I'm not sure what you were trying to have me do.
  7. All of the drives already have drive letters. They are all visible in File Explorer as shown in the pic. The PoolPart is hidden and for the most part there aren't any other files or folders on those drives. C: and D: are the 2 drives in the laptop. Z: is the DrivePool. Everything else are the pooled drives.
  8. The 8 drives are in a DrivePool, that makes drive Z:\. I don't think they are "mounted" to anything, they are just selected in DrivePool. Maybe I'm misunderstanding how DrivePool works. Yes, it is a dual drive laptop. I spec'd it that way. thanks
  9. Been a while, which is probably a good thing. Anyway, I've started using Lightroom. I am trying to get it to scan my complete DrivePool drive, Z:\ in this case. I have 2 physical drives in the laptop and 8 physical drives in an external enclosure. Only the 8 drives in the enclosure are pooled to make Z:\. I select Z:\ in Lightroom and it starts out all cool and such. But eventually Lightroom starts scanning C:\ and D:\ (the drives in the laptop) for images. Does anyone have any idea why Lightroom would scan C:\ and D:\? I tried the Adobe Lightroom community forum and was t
  10. Found it. Manage Pool > File Protection > Pool File Duplication > Change Duplication. Happy Easter.
  11. Thanks. Kinda late seeing these replies. At this point I don't know what I did as this was awhile ago, but it's all working again.
  12. How to turn on protection against multiple drive failure? I would like to turn this on for an existing drivepool. I can't find it anywhere in settings, or balancer settings. The manual makes it sound like it can come up while first creating a drivepool, but I would like to turn it on for an existing pool. thx
  13. When selecting "Manage Pool" I am getting this error, "Unable to enumerate folder. Access is denied" and the Okay button. Ideas what's causing this?
  14. Did what you described, it worked. Now for the hours long process of rebuilding the pool. Copy all the files from the 7 drives back into the new pool. thanks.
  15. I've been having problems for the last many weeks with DP getting seemingly stuck while duplicating. I've done more than one "clean install". Tried a beta from Chris. Nothing is working. I just did another clean install of the release version. I've also un-hidden and renamed all the poolpart folders from the old pool, so when DP started it didn't see any existing pool. All of the drives show up as non-pooled. Every drive I try to add to the new pool I get the error "Cannot add the same disk to the pool twice". I want to create a new pool and repopulate it with the existing files from
  16. Sometimes it's running quickly, sometimes slowly. Like you mentioned it has to check every folder on every drive. Still running, but cruising right now....
  17. Still plugging away as of right now. Probably let run it's course at this point.
  18. Don't know if it's connected with DP and the slow duplication, but "dpcmd set-duplication-recursive Z:\ 1 *\*" started out quickly, but now it's (after overnight) taking about 5 seconds a folder.
  19. I don't want to remove the pool, I "think" I just want to remove duplication and start over. DP (beta is still going to a point and getting stuck. I want to try removing all duplication and starting over. I tried the dpcmd you gave and keep getting "The command 'set-duplication-recursive' requires at least 3 parameters." So I just added *\* and it's running. Looks like it might take a bit. thanks again
  20. I wanted a totally clean install. Been having problems with DP going to a point and just stalling. I ran the wiki knowledgebase http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q3017479, then installed the beta according to Chris. Once the beta was installed it was trying to run the duplication scheme I had previously "dictated". What do I need to do differently than http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q3017479in order to get a totally clean install? I had set up specific folder duplications, that's what I want to clear out and start over from scratch. tia
  21. It shows up when showing Hidden Folders within Folder Duplication. Somehow it's gotten 3x duplication. And it doesn't show up within File Explorer even when show Hidden Items is on. Just wondering....
  22. Just ran the troubleshooter. montejw360 is the request ID. I'll install the BETA and see how that does. DP has been running, but it's slowed to a stop again. thanks for any help.
  23. It completed the duplication, just checked and the 2 .copytemp files are still there.
  24. That was epic. I ran a "Repair" on the installation via Programs and Features, it seems to have fixed itself. Finally made it thru the duplication all the way. If you still want to look, I can grab the logs. Let me know. thanks
