  1. Many thanks Umfriend. I suspected as much but wanted to confirm.
  2. Hi: I have a pool with multiple drives and some folder level duplication (with the files and photos I care about). Recently, one of the drives in the pool failed physically. I removed it (from the pool and physically) and replaced it with a new drive. The pool re-balanced, but given a large number of unsorted photos, I'm actually not sure which files (if any) I lost. Is there a way to tell without having a complete listing of my original files and folder structure? Good chance this was asked and answered before - I did try to search the forum but couldn't find the Q&A. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi - sorry if this has been asked/answered. A quick search through the Manual/FAQ/Forum didn't turn up anything. I'm running DrivePool on a Windows 7 machine. The pool drives are in an 8-bay USB external enclosure and I have duplication turned on for the entire pool. I have a healthy drive in the pool that I'd like to replace with a bigger drive. I'd like to do this with a minimum of 're-balancing', so here are my questions: 1) Should I just add the new larger drive to the pool, then immediately (software) 'remove' the older drive? Will this minimize 're-balancing'? 2) In general, is it better to let the pool re-balance with the 'removed' drive still physically connected? or is it better to let the pool regenerate the files on the removed drive from the duplicates? I know any of these options will work fine - just wondering what the quickest and most robust approach is. Thanks!
