    Very quick easy question

    Yep, thank you! I should have checked the wiki!

    Very quick easy question

    I've finally started getting my pools set back up. I'm moved over from Server 2012 to 2016 and I'm changing the way I have my drives partitioned in ESXi - getting away from RAW drives, even though I don't want to. My quick question is this: once I set up the pool, all I really need to do is move the folders on the existing drive into the PoolPart folder and it will rebalance from there, right? No downside to this? Sorry, I used to know this but it's been a while.

    Pool won't finish rebalance

    Hey Chris, you can call this one "done". Yesterday the 8TB shingled drive started showing drive errors in Drive Scanner. I ran some normal stuff such as chkdsk /f and some other things and no errors were found. I don't know what happened last night but the drive went to RAW and I lost the partition. No biggie, it was the duplication drive, so I did not lose anything. This is the second time this has happened with this drive, and I don't know what's going on but SeaTools finds no errors. Anyway, case closed, bad drive. Since I pulled it, the balancing completed across the remaining drives.

    Pool won't finish rebalance

    Hey Chris, did you notice I sent those files last week?

    Pool won't finish rebalance

    I have sent these files. Regarding settings, here's what I said above. There's really nothing else to it than this. I don't think it makes any difference, but so you understand my environment, I have two fast drives that act as my main drives, then a third, shingled drive that acts as the duplication drive. So, under Drive Use Limiter the two, fast 4TB drives are set up only for Unduplicated. Then, the 8TB shingled drive is set only for Duplicated.

    Pool won't finish rebalance

    Just got to it today. I travel a lot for work sometimes, and this is one of those periods when I'm gone a lot. It now says version 2.2.1.922. If I force a rebalance, it still doesn't get past 0.0% and stops.

    No, it will move for a few seconds, then stop and say balance isn't optimal (or whatever that message is)

    Chris, just checking to see if you got those logs. I did validate the version number and sent the troubleshooter files.

    Sent. Thanks!

    Pool won't finish rebalance

    It is still getting stuck at the same place. I would estimate it at about 60%. I don't think it makes any difference, but so you understand my environment, I have two fast drives that act as my main drives, then a third drive that acts as the duplication drive. So, under Drive Use Limiter the two, fast 4TB drives are set up only for Unduplicated. Then, the 8TB shingled drive is set only for Duplicated. That shingled drive is the one that went to RAW on me a while back, so I only want it to act as a backup drive.

    Pool won't finish rebalance

    Is there a way to find out why my pool won't finish rebalancing? I know I had this problem on another server where I had SQL Server running, but that problem was solved, and this one isn't running anything I can think of that would interfere with Drivepool. Version 2.2.0.906 if it matters, Windows 7...

    Drive not showing up to add to pool

    I sent the troubleshooting data, but resetting the settings worked.

    Drive not showing up to add to pool

    I just added a drive back to my server, a drive that worked in DrivePool before, but when I go into DrivePool to add it, it doesn't show on the list of unpooled drives. Any idea why? For the record, this server currently has no pools at all, so all drives should be showing up as available. This is on 2.2.0.903

    Drive just went RAW

    The automatic start/stop button at the top is "pushed", for lack of a better term.

    Drive just went RAW

    Seatools came back clean. I have reattached the drive. I opened Scanner and it is already scanning the drive. So, I'll let that finish for now...
