  1. Indeed. I may reconsider moving back to a server product, but will likely wait for server 10 essentials (assuming that the Essentials SKU will largely remain unchanged from the 2012 R2 version). Thanks again for the abundance of information, and your continued support of the community!
  2. @Christopher You are correct. Explorer does in fact show the full size of the pool, and yes I can certainly live with 2TB size in Disk Management and diskpart. (Not sure what was wrong my eyes earlier today - wow sorry about that). I am currently running Win 8.1, Pro, x64. Along those lines. I scanned the roadmap, and did not see if there was any mention of possible planned official support for the Windows 10 SKUs. Have you guys done, or have planned any Windows 10 work? @Umfriend Thanks for the info - I did read your info....for now, I am moving my data to a simple Windows 8.1 box, and not WHS 2011. Would love to have some of that backup utility that they built into WHS, but I will give it up in the search for a newer platform. Cannot tell you how I wish that MS did not axe the WHS product line. Thanks!
  3. Thank you all for the responses. I am currently running just Windows 8.1 on the 'server', but am looking at possibly moving to 2012 R2 essentials. I just do not know that I want or need a full Domain on the home network. Perhaps will hold on until we see what Windows 10 server brings to the table. At any rate, I tend to simply backup the pool content, and thus do that on a share by share basis, and not the whole pool. So, far, I am pleasantly surprised by StableBit. Software is well done, and these forums and the Customer Support (looking at you here Christopher) are top notch. Time to retire DriveBender. Thanks!
  4. So, I am looking at moving to StableBit (v2.1.1.561) from DriveBender due to what I see as slow performance when trying to access files in the pool. StableBit seems much snappier when trying to read/write to the pool, as well as when trying to get things like file sizes and counts from Windows Explorer. However, I am confused by the apparent limitation when a new pool is created of 2TB (in the CoveCube virtual disk). I am attempting to create a single pool of 3 x 4TB drives, with full duplication. When created, this pool only shows as 2TB in Windows Explorer, as does any pool created with a disk larger than 2TB. I also perform regular backups of the large shares that will be contained on this pool, and am concerned about that 2TB limit. I am not even sure I would be able to place the content in the pool, as I am simply trying to copy these files across the network. What will be the limitations of dealing with files both on the native windows machine, and across the network (\\server\sharename)? Has this limitation always been in DrivePool, and will it ever be removed? Sorry for the newbie question, perhaps I am missing something.....
  5. As a follow up to this thread..... So, I am looking at moving to StableBit (v2.1.1.561) from DriveBender due to what I see as slow performance when trying to access files in the pool.
