    Black Friday sales?

    Honestly, this SW is very cheap for what it does. Try it, like it and throw the guys a few greens
  2. Yes, In accordance with the settings you defined in setup for file / disk distribution.
  3. Well all is finally well. It took a while to kill the PoolpPart.2ad* folder in fact I ended up removing the subject 6TB drive and reformatting it to remove the file that insisted I need Admin rights (which I have) to delete. I don't seem to have lost any files, duplication is now back to normal and I have more than enough reserve space. Back to my honey do list......
  4. Update: Not quite back to normal yet. After allowing duplication and balance to sort sort out, I realized that there was still to much space being taken considering I had added a 12TB drive. Then I noticed that only when I accessed the pool folder there was a separate pool listed as PoolPart.2_XX as seen below. Final point is that the main pool has lots of empty sub folders (lost movies) and that most exist in PoolPart.2 Most of the "lost files" can be accessed there. Should I just copy the duplicate files into to the main pool to recover them and then delete PoolPart.2 to recover space. Thanks
  5. Go into manage pool and selection change duplication. Should show 3 now and type in 2.
  6. It was incredibly slow to remove the (10TB) drive and would hang at around 15-16 %, so I ran CHKDSK :/R and after a short while it reported fixed. Then I was able to remove Drive D:/ quite quickly and kill Pool J:/ Some of the folders in D:/ were empty so I'm rerunning duplication as they are present on Pool :/ Thanks so much for your help.
  7. Thanks for the help, yes I should have thought of that. Removal of the last drive has been running for some time now; with an 8TB I guess I just have to wait until its finished doing its thing.
  8. I managed to remove duplication in Pool I. Pool J is refusing to play nicely and remove itself, is there a way to force it?
  9. So I went into Pool J and tried to remove it. It looked as if if might and then gave an error message: File or directory is corrupted and unreadable. Same error with all 3 options checked. Any ideas.
  10. Sorry fighting keyboard issues. I don't understand why I is a subset of J, should be I if anything. I don't see how J can report 27.7 TB when only 1 - 10TB and 1 - 500 GB drives are linked. I'm scared to delete anything......
  11. Thanks very much for your reply. Yes I:\ is the original pool. Strangely the 2nd screen at least to me seems to show that I is a subset of J.... I cleaned up the missing drive. J:\ does have data, it lets me access all the server files I'm interested in. They both do. Do your instructions stand? Thanks in anticipation
  12. OK I have messed up big time. I was adding a new 12TB Seagate drive and decided it was late so I would add it to the pool later. Don't know how I did, it but I managed add it as I went to bed!. I now have a pool as part of a sub pool and some drives belong to one pool and others to the other. The only good thing is that because of my duplication settings I seems to have my important stuff in both pools. You can see I have a "couple" of drives and an SSD which has decided to not show, but is used for balancing. The drive "Server backup" is not part of any pool. Can you please explain how I can undo my error and merge the pools. Thanks
  13. My POOL was very full, pending adding a new drive , I reset duplication to 1 and vast amounts of space were freed. Then I selectively set duplication. A few days later I have lots of other files and little duplication. What could other be? New drive is here but ...... do I need it? John
  14. Totally agree with Umfriend, that's the way i did it. Plus if you mess up on deactivate the guys here will help you. For sure make sure you license - its a neat program.
