  1. Just to confirm, I saved it in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\StableBit\Scanner\Service" folder (not \Scanner) and renamed it to remove the .txt - there is an existing .config_default file already there which is where I'd made my initial noWMI change. In any case, after a reboot, I haven't yet received an email so hopefully this is fixed. Thanks!
  2. I changed Smart_NoWMI to True and rebooted, no luck - just got two more emails. I now notice Stablebit showing one of the drives showing a "reallocated sectors count past manufacturer's tolerances" when I click on the drive details (all drives show Healthy in the main interface) which probably caused the last couple of emails. However, looking at the drive just a minute later has the details back to normal and tolerances are ok. So looks like it keeps going back and forth on some S.M.A.R.T. info on the drives that is generating these emails.
  3. I'm having this same issue - it's a new system with 4X WD Red 4Tb drives and took two days to finally scan all the drives, during that time I received constant S.M.A.R.T. failure emails but looking at Scanner all disks show as healthy. Now that the initial scan is complete, I still get these emails intermittently and there's nothing wrong with any of the drives according to Scanner. I'm running build 2.4.0.2928 on Win7 x64. Not sure I really should be trying the beta version; what could be causing this?
  4. I've finally placed the order with a few tweaks to components, will update once I get the build together in the next week. Thanks again for all your comments, hope this goes smoothly! CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Newegg) Motherboard: Asus Z87-Pro (V Edition) ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($169.99 @ Newegg) Memory: Kingston HyperX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($164.99 @ Newegg) [Model KHX16C9K2/16 chosen because of QVL] Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($79.99 @ Newegg) Storage: 4 X Western Digital Red 4TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive ($175.99 @ Newegg) Case: Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case ($113.98 @ Newegg) Power Supply: SeaSonic 750W (SS-750KM3) 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($139.99 @ Newegg) Total: $1572.89
  5. Thanks to both of you for the additional info. Since I plan to stick with Windows 7 for familiarity reasons (and it'll do just fine since all it needs to do is serve up a network share, run Plex Media Server and few other apps), I figure going with a standard Asus MB is good. I like the 8 SATA ports on this, with my SSD for the OS I'll have room for 7 storage drives and that's more than enough based on my anticipated needs over the next several years. So yeah I've got some overkill on the components, but it feels alright to allow for a little headroom down the road. The i5-4670/Z87-Pro combo with 16Gb RAM seems straightforward, and I'm now looking at the Seasonic 750W SS-750KM3 PSU since it comes with 8xSATA connectors so everything works together. Most likely going with a Fractal Design R4 case, also with 8 3.5" drive bays . I'm starting with 4x4Tb WD Red drives for storage; here's the current proposed build (<$1,600): CPU: Intel Core i5-4670 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($214.99 @ NCIX US) Motherboard: Asus Z87-Pro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($167.99 @ NCIX US) Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($144.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($79.99 @ Micro Center) Storage: Western Digital Red 4TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive ($172.99 @ Adorama) Storage: Western Digital Red 4TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive ($172.99 @ Adorama) Storage: Western Digital Red 4TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive ($172.99 @ Adorama) Storage: Western Digital Red 4TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive ($172.99 @ Adorama) Case: Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case ($99.99 @ Micro Center) Power Supply: SeaSonic 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($139.99 @ Newegg)
  6. I'd thought of the Supermicro boards, but even though this will function as a server I want to use a desktop OS and there are compatibility issues with some of the server boards (including the X10SL7-F) running Windows 7. Plex Media Server would need to support maybe 3 concurrent clients, certainly no more than 4 (and more than 2 will be pretty rare) so I imagine a basic Haswell i5 quad-core will be more than capable. The other stuff like Sab/Nzbdrone etc. should be no problem.
  7. I guess the 600W PSU may be overkill, I'll have maybe 8-10 drives total. Still, it's cheap enough and it's nice to have the extra headroom. I wonder if it's worth the extra $100 to get an i7-4770/4790? Plex Media Server will likely be the only thing really working the CPU on this setup. Any other mobo recommendations? I like this particular Asus for the 8 SATA ports, Intel LAN, and general solid reputation. Mobo/CPU may be a little overkill for a basic Win 7 machine.
  8. I've finally decided to replace a dying WHS v1 with a Windows 7 x64 build and plan to use DrivePool. I will likely use my existing Lian-Li case (PC-V1200B) and a couple of 2-3Tb HD's, but will buy 3x4Tb WD Reds for storage. This is mainly used as my media server and central share for the home PC's, will run Plex and a few other apps. I'd love your thoughts on the proposed components; the budget is flexible, this seems like a good sweet spot.
