  1. Ok I see it now. I had to expand the window a little bit.
  2. I added my serial number and saw the legacy activations I have for DrivePool and Scanner. I installed the beta for each and have a few questions 1) After installing the beta and clicking the cloud icon to link to my cloud account, I see the activation disappeared from legacy activation screen. Does this convert the license from "Legacy" to "Cloud"? (I'm probably using wrong terminology) 2) When I look at apps, I see "2 linked" for DrivePool. When I click open, I see the 2 computers. If I check the box, it says shows a red "unlink" box. If I click unlink, is this the same as "dea
  3. I just noticed that when I click the computer drop down, it shows the computers I have drive pool installed on and an IP address of 172.16.xxx.xxx. I see that this IP is internal like 192.168 and 10.0. Why would this be showing in my list when internal IP address range isn't using that?
  4. In Windows 10, when I select the properties for my Drivepool disk it says: Used Space working..... 94.2 TB Free space 6,412,489,531,392 5.83 TB Capacity working.... 100 TB Would there be a reason this would say working? Everything seems to be find and the numbers seem accurate for the most part I've tried rebooting, going into troubleshooting and resetting
  5. Motherboard is Asus X370 Prime Pro (8 Sata Ports). I have a total of 13 drives, with 1 of them being an SSD (Boot Drive). To connect the maining 5 drives, I have one of these plugged into the NVME slot on the board: (This was purchased from Amazon) "IO Crest Internal 5 Port Non-Raid SATA III 6GB/s M.2 B+M Key Adapter Card for Desktop PC Support SSD and HDD. JMB585 Chipset" When I use the latest released version, it tries to scan one of the drives on the nvme adapter and after about 20 hours, it's only about 7% complete (on a 4 TB size drive). If I try, it shows it being
  6. I've downloaded and installed and after about 2 or so hours, none of the disks have started to be scanned. I've tried stopping the service for a few minutes and restarting to no-avail. How do I get it to start scanning?
  7. I did a reinstall of the latest version of Windows 10 and installed Scanner This morning, I noticed that it got thru the SSD and roughly 6% of one the HDD ( Machine has roughly 8 HDD installed) Rebooted this morning. After about 3 hours I opened up scanner, which I had to wait a few minutes for it to "Initialize". When it finally came up, it showed 1 of the drives as being at 4% complete and no attempts on the other drives. I could have sworn I have seen scanner try to scan multiple drives at once. This machine currently sits idle, so I can't see why the disk chec
  8. Using beta, I've been noticing at random times in file explorer it will show the drivepool, but it won't list how much space is available (X GB Free of X GB), along with all the other physical drives. Eventually explorer freezes. Drivepool also appears to be stuck on 35% duplicating Metadata, as that has it checked for 3 & I'm not duplicating anything else. In the system, there are 8 drives. 4 - 8 TB Easy store. 5 TB Seagate, 6 TB Seagate & 2 - 4 TB HGST Green I'll reboot & the drives come back for about an hour & the same issue again. I have tried swap
  9. I personally went back to the release version (I think 2.1.561) & haven't had any issues. By chance are the later version more geared towards W10? The reason I ask, is I seem to have better luck with the "release" version on my W7 machine & it seems that I can run the beta's on my W10 machine.
  10. It was the latest public beta & again this is a W7 machine. Not sure if it's best to use an older version with W7 or not, as it seemed in the past I had better luck with the released version. That being said, the beta seemed to complete the measuring faster compared to the released version. Not sure if I was just seeing things or not Thank you for confirming that it shouldn't measure after each boot. The only time I noticed that it would start over was if it didn't complete the measuring before a restart occurred.
  11. I've noticed with the latest beta that when DP is measuring, that trying to access the pool is very slow, and when I try to open a small file, I'm having to wait before it actually tries to open. Other times, it will acct like the drive pool isn't in file explorer. Is there a limit on the number of drives before setting out run slow, or is there a way to tell it at what time to measure No files on the pool have changed, but yet it's measuring after they reboot. Ok another computer, our doesn't measure after every reboot. This is a W7 machine & using the latest public beta.
  12. After opening Scanner, it's stuck on "Initialzing" with the dots going left & right. I even tried stopping & restarting the service & same result
  13. Hello, I wanted to get some clarification on the File Evacuation options "Damaged Drive" compared to "SMART Warnings" For example, I have seen two different type of SMART warnings in DrivePool. The first being the FYI type of warning & the second being highlighted in orange stating (in so many words) the drive is about to die. What I would like to be able to do is the SMART warning is more the FYI type to not do anything, but if DrivePool is saying the drive is about to die, to start evacuating the files Can this be done, or does the "Move files out of drives with SMART w
  14. Hi Everyone, I'm currently using Crashplan to backup the cloud & also to an external hard drive. What I'm wondering is could I install DrivePool on another computer that is running Crashplan & backup to that? Reason why I ask is the consumer version of Crashplan only allows you to backup to one drive The idea being I could take the external backup & make it become an offsite local backup Thanks
  15. Hi Everyone, I have a disk that Scanner says is damaged (when I try to do a file scan afterwards it cannot find anything & When I do a chkdsk, it comes back with nothing wrong). I want to be able to still use the disk & have it rescan the disk. When I look up previous messages, it mentions to click on the + next to the disk to see 4 options (on the left). The problem is, I only see 3 - Option for block size - Button to "Start Check" - Button to Edit blocks The one I'm using is still on the trial, but on the other computer, which does have a paid license, it also on
