    Changing HDD's

    Hello, I have a pool consisting of 3 HDD's. Nothing wrong with any of them but I'd like to upgrade 1 HDD with a higher capacity one and use the lower capacity one for something else on another computer... What is the best/fastest way to move files from one hdd (in the pool) to another (not in the pool) without messing things up for DP? include new one in pool? clone disk? use explorer & move? etc? Thanks!
  2. bit late to the game, but I've seen many companies that no longer exists and pretty much share a similar story. there is 1 developer, isn't 100% dedicated. has other interests and hobbies. few years into it, loses focus, chases tails, loses interest as it's still working. support fades, links no longer work, website starts failing. boom! gone.... Same scenario can be seen in mobile phone app developers as well. mind you that most software has millions if not thousands of downloads, in comparison... Also, there are new controllers, new hard disks, etc. that, I don't know the programming of DrivePool, but just like everything else, would have to support new hardware and any keep up-to-date with changes to Windows, Linux, etc.. So, I think it is a very valid concern.
  3. Sorry to bring and old topic back online.... I had just ordered an archive drive to enable duplication before I went to vacation. Came back from it and heard an awesome ticking noise on the server. Lost a 4tb drive, head fubar'ed scratched all the platters. Seagate Enterprise drive after 2.5 years.... I checked out the other threads will enable duplication and enable like wincatalog or something.. but in the mean time, I'm wondering if this feature was ever implemented on DrivePool, so I can find out what got deleted and cry over it? ps. I have stablebit scanner, hdd sentinel running. None of them gave any indication..

    HDD failure!

    Hello, I've been using Drivepool + Scanner little over a year now. I've 3 drives in the pool, mainly mkv files that are accessed through the local network to max 2 people. not heavy load. I've scanner set to almost default values. I have not been restarting my computer for the past few months. well maybe once or twice for crucial updates... so in the end, yesterday at 2am in the morning, I woke up to my hard disk making awesome noises! sounds like a head or power issue from what I can tell. head goes back and forth.. what I cannot tell is the fact that I do not have any record of any issues through SMART or Scanner..granted I've not been checking too much based on the fact that upon critical issue, Scanner would throw a message at me, but wtf! So I started checking the logs and I've not seen any failed event even when Seagate Barracuda 3TB hard disk was down on its knees. All I have is Succeeded: AtaPassThrough PastDueTime=)... [DiskCheckInfo] Getting ranges to check on \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE4 (RecheckInterval=30.00:00:00 I'm mad! Don't know what or who to blame. I've disconnected all drives connected to the pool just for the hell of it, until I resolve it.. How do I read the ErrorReport_2015_05_28-01_27_17.2.saencryptedreport files?
