    Data & Drive Help

    While I am here... What is "Other" anyways? At least in terms of normal use, you have Unduplicated, duplicated, other and unusable for duplication.

    Data & Drive Help

    Sadly, the drive was not recoverable. There was a tool I found that finds all missing/unavailable items in Plex, so I know what is missing now at least. I just removed the dead drive from the pool, added a new drive, and its now Balancing. So in the end we will see what I get.

    Data & Drive Help

    Side note, I was just pointed out something about my setup. Most of my data, 18.5TB is being shown in Other. Which I am now told means its not part of the pool? I don't understand that, if its part on all my drives, and shows up as one single drive, then Stablebit is doing what its supposed to and is part of the pool is it not?

    Data & Drive Help

    If I can recover the data, how do I get it back onto the pool. Do I remove the missing drive now or after? Do I add the new drive with that data already put onto it (the recovered data), or add new drive to pool then add data? What other steps should I know about? Also, say the data I recover isn't actually what is needed, maybe its only part of the data or something else, what happens then when added to the pool? How do I know.

    Data & Drive Help

    So one of my drives have apparently died. I am still looking into that and if data recovery is possible. My question is how do I move forward. How do I find out exactly what data was on the dead drive? It would seem even though duplication is off, most of my items are on different drives within the pool. So assuming I can't get that dead drive working or the data back, I need to know exactly what is lost...how the heck do I do that? Example, I have a shows and movies folder. The shows seem to show that its on all of my drives, showing how much data for each drive for that specific show folder. So if that is the case, how do I know what exactly was on the dead drive?

    Backup & Windows 10

    I figured it out. I removed my license, installed/wiped new Windows 10, installed DrivePool and added my license and all is well.

    Backup & Windows 10

    Ok I think I mis-understood. I went and hit remove on one of the drives in the pool, and it just seems to be removing the data from the pool. When you say disconnect? Do you means physically in the system, the actual drives inside my case? Going inside my case is problematic and keeping track of which is which. Can I not just remove my license and wipe the system, and install and add license and it will detect the pool? Also yea.... I have drivepool installed on the OS SDD, but my data are their own drives. Do I not have to backup the DrivePool software somehow? Seems very confusing and worrying.

    Backup & Windows 10

    Thanks for all the help. I know you have likely been asked already but any ETA on Windows 10 update? I am likely to do the update anyways as I know the current version is fine, but...?

    Backup & Windows 10

    So that is all you do? You just remove the drives from the pool? So the data just sits wherever it already is? I never played with any other settings so that isn't a concern. Just want to make sure that when I install the app and add drives to pool, it will just work. I just feel like the data on the drives need to know how to connect to each other, but I guess that isn't the case? **or do you mean something else by disconnect the drives?

    Backup & Windows 10

    Hi, I have Stablebit DrivePool installed on Windows 8.1. I am now wanting to backup everything and move to Windows 10. What are the exact steps needed? My DrivePool drives are all their own, the OS is on its on SSD not included in the DrivePool. How do I make sure I can install Windows 10, and install DrivePool and be backup how I was before?
