  1. Chris, this sounds remarkably similar to the issue I had. Which is what brought me here, as it has started reoccurring.
  2. Sounds good. If there is anything you need, please let me know. This is a frustrating error to deal with
  3. One other question, if a drive that is a storage location for duplicated data only, drops from the pool (ie: Cloud Drive becomes unmounted)- will the pool become read only until it returns? Thanks,
  4. Hey everyone, I'm essentially looking to use Cloud Drive with my storage provider as a location where DrivePool and duplicate files to. I want no unduplicated files placed on the Cloud Drive. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this? Also Alex (and team): is it possible to get email notifications setup included in CloudDrive for when there is an error, or if the drive becomes unmounted? Thanks!
  5. Okay, so I just went through this, on a 120TB setup. Drivepool was unable to balance and duplicate properly throughout this. Unfortunately the StableBit teal (while involved thoroughly, had trouble figuring it out.) I found two problems. Problem one: I had a failing hard drive. Once I found and removed that, DrivePool was able to scan, and tell me a file it was failing on. Problem two: Many times, it was an old file that the file path for some reason was being detected as too long. I usually would go through each drive individually, and either delete, or remove from the DrivePool.
  6. I am currently trying to resize CloudDrive, I am using OneDrive as a provider. I found when initially setting up, that if I increased more than 2-300GB at a time, it would crash CloudDrive. Well, I want to grow past 1TB, and I am unable. Everytime I try and jump to 2TB or more, it crashes. How can we troubleshoot this? Thanks,
  7. I rebuilt my file server over the weekend, and installed DrivePool/Scanner as a trial. I deactivated DrivePool on the old server, and reactivated on the new. I can't find any option to deactivate Scanner, and get the error "License not found for this machine" error when trying to activate the new fileserver. Thanks,
  8. I have uploaded the service logs. Please let me know. Thanks!
  9. No problem, it was a long weekend afterall I can't grab the service logs until morning. I have noticed as well, that no matter what, the balancing never finishes. It will stop, but always says File Distribution is not optimal. Attached is the screen shot.
  10. Hey Guys, 42.8TB Pool Unduplicated: 1.13TB Duplicated: 38.1TB Other: 14.5GB Unusable for Duplication: 4.18TB Until this point I thought I understood the unusable space, I added a 5TB drive on Saturday, told it to recalc, and rebalance- and afterwards, unusable ballooned. Now this morning, it is telling me that file placement is not optimal, so I have it balancing again now, but that will take some time (I increased priority) but will still take a couple hours minimum. I have no idea if this will help whatsoever. Any thoughts on what the issue could be?
  11. Hey Chris, 2012 R2. Running Beta. Well, remeasuring fixed it. I was hoping to recover the space lol. Instead we just moved that 4.5TB into another column. At least its fixed. Thanks!
  12. Hey Guys, Not your typical post about other space. I have 4.5TB being taken up both other. (Attached snapshot) I have spot checked drives, M:\ in this case, has 391GB of other. (Note attached) The only data on all of these drives that are loaded with other, have no data other than the PoolPart folder. Drives are only used for DrivePool, OS does not exist any on any of these drives. Any ideas? 4.5TB is alot to lose to "overhead". Thanks,
  13. Thanks Chris. I've followed the PM. Thanks for the help!
