  1. Hello If I have a pool of two drives, one is a 500GB 5400 rpm hard drive and the other is a 500GB SSD, does Drivepool always attempt to write and read to the SSD? Thank you
  2. Is there some documentation on interacting with the Scanner API? Asking for examples I would understand that would be a bit too much; I want to interact with it using Powershell.
  3. I dont have a link to said ticket. Where can I find it?
  4. I submitted a support ticket some days ago and I have not receieved any type of response.... Besides paying for the product itself, I did pay for support so I expect some kind of reaction....
  5. I should have asked this earlier..Fuck. I want to know Drivepool's recommendation: Create the pool on the hypervisor and pass that pool to the guest VM or Pass all disks to a VM and create the pool in the VM? ASAP please; Im setting this up and honestly forgot to ask.
  6. Hello Scanner can read drives that I put in passthru mode in a VM that other software simply cannot. Is there a way to expose that Scanner API so I can read it and get information? Thank you
  7. Could you explain how other software leverages it then?
  8. Im sorry but I dont understand.... Every software on planet earth can use VSS perfectly. I dont see any reason your software can (even if it has to do it on each individual drive instead of the pool) https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Virtual_File_System_Modules https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs-auto-snapshot/wiki/Samba https://forum.openmediavault.org/index.php/Thread/7331-GUIDE-Windows-Previous-Versions-and-Samba-Btrfs-Atomic-COW-Volume-Shadow-Copy/ These documents/links show how to leverage VSS over Samba as long as the underlying file system supports snapshots (such as ZFS). AFAIK, the underlying file system (the rest of the disks) are NTFS so they can be VSSd... About backing up, IMO you need to be much clearer and it needs to be added in official documentation... "Backup the underlying disks in the pool"...So what you are saying is that instead one volume being backed up, its necessary to back up several (in the sense that one disk = one volume)? And then restore them? I dont think its that difficult; Drivepool should provide a easy way for backup software using VSS to backup its pool. Not allowing so breaks compatibility with a lot of backups software.
  9. Ill never understand why Drivepool and VSS are not compatible. Samba, which is open source software, is fully compatible with VSS. So its not about "there isnt documentation about it"; There is an implementation already! Anyways, I want to know what is Stablebit's official procedure on making a backup of a pool and how to restore from backup. Thanks
  10. I need to create some hard links for Radarr but Im getting a The request is not supported. Error. What is wrong?
  11. Hello I remembered that just in case Im gonna enable Shadow Copies and tried to enable it and got this error Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error DeviceIoControl(\\?\Volume{e6a2b8d3-536f-4726-8e52-0340af2b09fa} - 00000000000002A4,0x0053c008,0000025D65CADDE0,0,0000025D65FB0080,4096,[0]). hr = 0x80820001, The bootfile is too small to support persistent snapshots. Why?
  12. I have a machine runnning Drivepool/Scanner in a DMZ and by default everything is blocked except what is needed. What ports, protocols and/or WAN address does Scanner need to access in order to notify when there is a issue with the disks?
  13. Enabling unsafe mode did the trick and now shows S.M.A.R.T. data.
  14. Hello I was going to buy Stablebit Scanner but during the trial period I just noticed something... It is not giving me any S.M.A.R.T data and says it is not accessible. I installed smartctl and right out of the bat, it can access the S.M.A.R.T. data, show me values, etc.... The ability to see S.M.A.R.T data and even notify me is a BIG reason I got the bundle the first time around. Now, if it doesnt work, why should I? Im using the SAME drives that worked in a similar setup so...Its not a drive issue.
  15. If they reply on there, that gives me the sensation and this is a official support forum. I think it would be better to make a section for paying members only support but....
  16. Yeah, well, thats incredibly rude to do to potential customers and even past customers that have invested in the product. If there was a alternative, I might even use that as Im receiving 0 replies
  17. Im moving from a old server to a new and Im coming up on the end of then trial period and transfer hasnt finished. What happens?
  18. You do know that by not answering you are losing a sale....and a past customer right?
  19. Is Drivepool compatible on Hyper-V Server 2019?
  20. Hello I have a new server and Im trying to pass data from the old server to the new but Im having some issues on how to configure it regarding Drivepool.... See in the old server, I made a RDM passthru of the drives to ESXi and then directly in the VM, connected the drives. The drives were seen perfectly by the VM and then I just went on with the typical Drivepool configuration... In the new server, RDM passthru is not possible.....The only way to semi do it is make a RAID0 of each drive, pass those RAIDs to the VM, and then use that. The VM sees a H700 RAID Drive....Not the actual drive. I can make a storage pool and it works.... I want to ask Drivepool what would be the recommended action to take. Thank you
  21. Hello Im going to spin up a VM just for storage and I want to move my pool over to that one. The drives are connected directly so they arent virtualized or anything. First, what is the best way to move to pool? The correct procedure, etc. Second, afterwards, how do I move the licence? Thanks
