  1. Hi Christopher, Thank you very much indeed for the help, above and beyod the call of duty as last time i posted. Very useful advice. I will try those things.. I just have a couple of small follow up questions, as it's looking more like i will have to do the reinstall. - If i deactivate my license in preperation for the update, what will happen to my pool? Will it stop working until i activate again. - I had a look at the deactivate activate option in the software, to prepare. And i noticed instead of Deactivate it had "Transfer License" instead. I assume this maybe to do with
  2. Hi, My home server is behaving strangely (not allowing me to update my virus checker, or install a new one), so i suspect maybe it has a virus and i may have to reinstall windows if i can't fix it. I have 2 disks pooled to a new drive letter. As far as i know if i reinstall windows from scratch, and install drivepool again, it will automatically add in the pool again, right? So i have 2 questions: 1. How would the affect my license? Would i need to do anything? 2. I have my server setup with several users and groups, and i have applied different permissions to different folders on my dri

    Hi Christopher, I know I've informed you of the following in our support conversation but i'll update this thread too in case anyone else has a similar issue. Stablebit's software is working great of course, and the issue seems with my config. I was thinking it's an incompatibility with the 6Tb Red Drive, and my HP Microserver. But something you said sparked a light in my head, which was about the controller i'm using. I'd been using the generic windows SATA controller. This is because HP doesn't provide drivers for Windows 8 for the HP Microserver (N54L). But i saw from other peopl

    Hi there..thanks for your reply - good advice To keep you informed, i took the disk back to the shop and got a replacement as it's a new disk. So i installed that and i got the same issues roughly. So then i moved the disk into another computer and run Stablebit scanner on it there and it seemed to work fine without the errors getting reported on the usual machine (though i didn't wait for it to finish it got much further than before without errors). This means the disk is probably ok. I had a 2TB disk without much data on so i put this into the machine that was getting the errors, fo

    ...and in my event view i get plenty of this: An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\DR1 during a paging operation. And some of this: The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur in VolumeId: D:, DeviceName: \Device\HarddiskVolume2. (A device which does not exist was specified.)

    Thanks for the reply Well, it's both. Sometimes the drive is visible during the scan, while Stablebit is reporting increasing "unable to read sectors" - so at that time i can see the disk, and i can write to it by creating text files or folders as a test. So that's the drive working and reporting those. Other times the drive shows up, but cannot be written to. If i try write to it as above windows says "Could not find this item. This is no longer located in this PC", even though i can see the file structure and that the drive shows up in MS "Disk Management". At this stage, stablebit also

    Apologies is this may notdirectly be related to Stablebit scanner or drivepool, but i've bought a new hard disk WD red 6tb and installed it into a HP Microserver (I think i can handle the 6tb since they handle 4tbs..i digress) .. Anyway, i noticed that my drivepool wasn't working right, like it couldn't find the files that it showed were there..but when i looked in the hidden folder, the files aren't showing -though i know they're there. I tried creating a folder on the drive and WIndows (8.1) says it can't find the drive. Rebooting solves it for a while but it comes back and i've tried res
  8. Yey!, for the first post, and another Yey! for the answer too which was pretty much exactly what i was hoping to hear That makes things much easier in that scenario.. Looking forward to putting it into action soon. Thanks for taking the time out to reply. Much appreciated.
  9. Hi, I haven't started playing with Drivepool yet (waiting for some disks), but i am just curious about the underlying folder structure on the physical disks. We can read the drives independently of Drivepool in the event of problems due to NTFS, as i hear that the files are kept in a hidden folder nothing special. But what i am wondering is how the files look there if i were to open that folder. Are they just kind of randomly allocated there, or is there a folder structure that matches, or is close to the folder structure we would see on the actual pooled virtual drive. For example,
  10. Just to let you know, support helped solve my problem. A simple restart of the server did it. Sorry for hijacking the thread, though maybe a restart would help fix your case too perhaps.

  12. I'm having a very similar issue, but for me it's on the Drivepool installation. I'm a new user and have just bought my licence before downloading it. For me, the scanner installs, but drivepool fails on installation, which is kinda annoying since that's the one i'm most interested in . Installing drivepool 64bit, on 64 bit windows 8.1 on HP microserver (N54L 4gig ram). In my log from the error message it says further down: [0D48:0DFC][2014-09-16T20:53:13]i301: Applying execute package: DrivePoolApplication, action: Install, path: C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\{43053F4F-87D0-4459-A600-03
