  1. Just want to say thanks for this post. I had trouble moving, deleting some folders in Stablebit and have tried the Windows GUI settings. The two commands did the trick!
  2. Hi again. I've send the logs so you could see what's going on:)
  3. Yes both options are enabled, so I don't know what to do. When the trial ran out last time the disks started to sleep correctly but I still received SMART notifications..
  4. I have both: Checked "Throttle queries" Not more often than 60 minuted. Checked "Only Query during the work window of if scanning" And work window is defined to 3 hours a day..

    Flexraid and stablebit

    Hmm now it actually measured correctly.

    Flexraid and stablebit

    Thanks for your answer. I have moved and remeasure but it still shows xxx gb as other. It's perhaps 25 % of the data. How do I fix and identify that?
  7. Hi i have a question. I have used flexraid with drivepool. One of my drives died and have now restored it 2. If I want to move the files into a drivepool can I just move direct from drive to folder or should I move to the drivepool letter?
  8. Thanks for the answer. The stablebit scanner is the only causing the disks to not sleeping. If the service is disabled or not in working mode, then my disks sleeps.
  9. Hi again guys. I have tested after enabling the trial and my harddrives doesn't sleep anymore, so it must be the service. What can I now try?
  10. Hi I have a problem. I had problems with writing permissions on my drivepool folders, so I looked at this topic: http://forum.covecube.com/discussion/522/access-to-destination-folder-was-denied/p1 I tried to uninstall and install again, but my license key is not working anymore:( I had to enable trial but now I can write to the folders again. Can someone please help my with my license key??
  11. Thanks for the answer. But if you look at my earlier I already have defined a work window 16-19 and throttle 1 hour. Maybe it doesn't honor these settings but don't know how to troubleshoot that
  12. Hi guys a follow up on this one: I didn't have time to activate the extended trial, and it is expiring tomorrow, perhaps it is possible I can use it in april months to test instead when I haven't activated it? What I did try instead was keeping an eye on my drives/shares and after the scanner was not available "trial expired first time" my drives was waking and sleeping correct for all the time, so something must be going on with the scanner program, that is conflicting, because the service is still running (I guess) even when the program is not accessable.. I did get a few warnings that drives was not overheating in this period.
  13. Thanks Beaker for telling me your setup and story. For me I have 6 disks and in the future more I think and the thought and more tearing/shorter lifespan and added electricity is giving me Some headache so I really hope to get it working like before without any special mediaplayback/pool problems. And to Christopher I have drivepool also and have set it to balance perhaps once a day. I will try to disable stablebit scanner like you recommended and see if that helps. And thanks for expanding the trial. I will get to it Monday morning when I can test and will report back and hopefully you/Alex perhaps Beaker can chime in with suggestions. Thanks for all the help until now:)
  14. Hi Alex. Thanks for the very elaborating answer. My trial license is now expired and I would like to buy it, but I have to get to standby sorted somehow. I don't think I have "disk control" option on these drives because of firmware issues with them earlier. No matter what I try I can't get the to spin up/down like before after I installed Stablebit scanner. I can understand that query doesn't affect spinup/spindown (power) on the disks. What do you suggest in my specific case, when I can't get them to sleep?
  15. Hi again no problem:) I really try to understand this, but if I enable "query power mode directly from the disk" then if I have enabled work schedule and enabled only query in that interval. Then as I understand it will still only query in that work window correct if "query power mode directly from the disk" is enabled correct? The other solution with letting Windows handle standby doesn't work anymore after installing stablebit scanner.
  16. Hi Christopher can you be kind and help me with my last questions ?
  17. hmm thanks a shame, but if I have only query when scanning and query every 60 minutes within that interval, wouldn't it be the best call for me to use "Query power mode directly from the disk" then? I can't see the status in power management but if it works? And if I enable "Query power mode directly from the disk" will it only wake up the disks when quering and accessing disk?
  18. Hi Christopher can you help me with the above questions ?
  19. I enabled the Power Column but all my disks are active all the time. How do I change that, because before I installed Stablebit Scanner my harddrives did spin down, and when I accessed them I could hear them spin up, but after installing stablebit scanner they are not spinning down. I have a work windows 3 hours a day, I have sat throttle to 60 minutes but what more should I do? should I set "Query power mode directly from disk is set". Will that help and how do I know it will spin down after 20 minutes which I would like to do? In stablebit drivepool I have Balance Immediately but not more often than every 12 hours. Thanks for your help.
  20. A couple of quick questions. 1. I have changed work interval to 16.00-19.00, since the disks are already in use there, but that should be no problem multitasking/CPU wise correct? 2. Can I see through a command or portable program see if my disks are sleeping correctly, since earlier it took some time to access the sleeping disks but after installing Stablebit Scanner and enabling the work window I can access the disks fast, which makes me think they are not sleeping?
  21. Thanks Christopher. And last and final question. - I thought the drives was only active in the work window, but why should it then be nessesary to enable the "Throttle queries"? Is the drives not in sleep mode all the time except 03:00-06:00 so I should only set that option or what do I exactly gain by "Throttle" option if the drives are already a sleep. Does it mean that the drives are "online (not sleeping)" all the time to get the SMART data and only scanned in the work window or does it get SMART without waking the drives? How does it work. Sorry for the start questions, I just don't want to tear the drives unnessary and want it "kind of like" before but still want to monitor them.
  22. Thanks again. Last questions:) So for my need if I don't want them running all the time what would this be you recommendation: 1. General tab: Only perform work between 03:00-06:00 SMART TAB: Only query during the work window or if scanning. And what about Throttle Queries. Should I also activate that option + the settings below to be sure they are not spun up all the time? 2. Regarding the USB hard drives it shows as not checked. Should I in scanner options choose: check or uncheck: Do not automatically scan removable media/hard drives? IF I want them scanned but not spun up all the time? 3. Should start/stop automatically be enabled when I want to do the things above or is manually the correct option so I should not worry about spin up?
  23. Hi Christopher. Thanks for an very elaborating answer. Very appreciated. I have just 2 follow up questions. 1. If it runs all the time does it mean that both internal and external drives will not go into standby/sleep after 20 minutes as I has set them to earlier? The reason I'm asking is because I am worried of the extra tearing and that it will end of life the drives earlier if they don't spin down. So I'm hoping I still can do that somehow with stablebit scanner also. 2. My external drives are always plugged in so I'm surprised the didn't get scanned after I pressed start scan option in the menu. Again thanks for the help much appreciated and also thanks to RobbieH for the input.
