  1. Found it, thank you! It was the serial number i was looking for.
  2. 5 days now and no more clicking, my hdds werent clicking also prior to installing the highpoint card and its drivers. Maybe they did something to drivepool the update fixed. By the way pocketdemon do you know how to make stablebit scanner display the hdd's 8 digit identification number? It did it on its own when it spotted a bad hdd but dont know how to make it display it on other hdds.
  3. I'm very unlucky with electronics, when an hdd of mine died and tried to recover files, windows 10 told me falsely that i need to initialize two hdds and i lost data on 3 hdds while i tried to recover data from one lol. It's been over 24 hours and none of my hdds have clicked after the drivepool update, i'm excited i think it worked!
  4. On youtube comments i read people making seagate hdds quite by installing newer firmware or special firmware provided by emailing seagate, people warn that there's a small risk bricking the hdd. So far no more clicking occurs but if it comes back and the bitlocker setting doesnt fix it permantly would you recommend updating the firmware? What would be the safest way to do it? Do i need to be in safe mode etc?
  5. After manually updating the drivepool now that settings file is showing. While updating all clicking of my hard drives stopped so i think it's drive pool that makes my hard drives click, i will wait now for my hard drives to click again before changing the bitlocker settings in hopes the newer version installed might be better on its own and dont have to make changes.
  6. Yes that option to show hidden files is enabled, does drivepool updates automatically as i havent manually update it for years.
  7. The Settings.json file is missing in the service folder. I only have error reports, logs and store folders inside the service folder.
  8. The clicking came back and on multiple drives after i started playing a video game. When i restarted the computer it went away again. How can i disable the BitLocker_PoolPartUnlockDetec´╗┐t ? I think now there's something in my windows that makes the drives click. I have turned the spin down drives option in highpoint to enable and power settings on hdds in windows to 0 minutes. Still the hdds sound like fans but that noise doesnt bother me anymore, i hope i can nail down the clicking problem. So far restarting the computer fixes it temporarily.
  9. how can i disable the BitLocker_PoolPartUnlockDetec´╗┐t ? cant find it anywhere.
  10. Thanks for the advice Pocketdemon, the highpoint software has options to spin down the hdds but have left it at disable. It forces you login to a website to use it which is kinda an inconvenience . So far the hdd hasnt clicked again and after the clicking problem i went through i dont mind the hdds sound like fans anymore, the clicking was so annoying. I hope i dont get to experience it again. The software has option to light an led and spot certain hdds, do i need special cables to make it work or it works only with backplanes?
  11. Another problem it showed up just today after installing the highpoint card with custom made psu sata cables from moddiy and sff 8087 cables, an archive hdd started clicking, so far i found out the reason it does is cause its writing head keeps parking itself over and over again and have to use a software to keep writing on it to keep it awake all time so it doesnt click. I tried that and other things to keep the hdd awake and didnt work, until i switched spots with another hdd next to it and so far it hasnt clicked again or the other hdd that took its spot. Do you know how the clicking occurs and if it's highpoint card , cable or hdd related problem? I bought the highpoint card used by the way, seller said he lightly used it in a server for 3 months. Do these cards give these kind of problems eventually?
  12. Few months ago when an hdd of mine died the scanner software helped me locate it by displaying its 8 digit number. Now i have an hdd clicking that i try to fix but cant find the option in the scanner that will show the 8 digit numbers of the hdds again. Can you guys help me out? Also so far i found out the reason my hdd is clicking is cause its writing head keeps parking itself over and over again and have to use a software to keep writing on it to keep it awake all time so it doesnt click. Is there any other solution to this problem? I have 14 hdds and only one is clicking right now and it started happening after i changed my psu power sata cables to some custom ones from moddiy site and connecting the hdds to the highpoint 750 card. Could it be the card or the power sata cables the cause of the problem?
  13. I got my new highpoint card up and running. I copied some files to an hdd and in the beginning it reported speeds at 450mb/s then it would drop down to 80mb/s and even to low 20s. A problem i had before and still have is sometimes the speed goes down to zero and freezes there for few seconds then go high again then back down to zero and repeat. Is this a sign of the hdd dying?
  14. Based on my usage the highpoint 750 card is best for me but will miss the lsi card as i was getting constant 400mb write speed, while using motherboard's sata ports i was getting 200mb write speed max then would drop down to 80mb for most of the time.(and i suspect the 750 card to have speeds similar to my motherboard if not worse.) By the way the official write speed of the seagate archive 8tb is 188mb/s so i'm surprised how i was getting 400mb/s with the lsi card, maybe cause it was making them spin insanely fast that's why they were sounding like jet engines.
  15. I just bought this card for $400 on ebay used.(seller says it was slighted used in a server for 3 months). HighPoint Rocket 750 40-Channel SATA 6Gbps PCI-Express 2.0 x 8 HBA 750 Plan to send back the lsi as dont feel comfortable editing the registry. Did i made the right choice pocket demon?
