    Scheduled balancing >24 hours apart?

    Thanks guys for 2 helpful posts... It probably then makes sense to real time balance and work out how to get SABnzbd (my DL client) to call SnapRAID update (via helper) a few mins after the queue is emptied. That would mean files in right places, no DLs in progress or unpacks and CPU idle so max effort for parity updates etc

    Scheduled balancing >24 hours apart?

    Related Qs Scenario: Low powered server & download box. Want to order tasks to avoid them running at same time. e.g. Download queue empties so then execute Balance to move files and then execute SnapRAID to update. Q1: How can I call the DP Balance function (with DP running all the time) just when the Download queue is empty (the downloader can identify and script calling once queue is empty)? Q2: Once Balance is complete how can I then call to SnapRAID to do its stuff?

    Problems with Measuring & Balancing

    Thanks.. Finally got it measuring but its reluctant to do what it should re balancing I have it set to (for now) immediate balance on SSD plugin and to move if over 50Gb of data to move. SSD has 140Gb to move but DP sits doing FA....

    Problems with Measuring & Balancing

    My system doesnt want to measure the whole pool.. I get random errors on some files so I assume that is what stops it finishing? I've deleted files and set them to re-download from other sources but still having issues. And then the balancer in the SSD plugin is not actually moving files. I have LOTS of files (many 100s of GB) that are on the wrong drive for various reasons to do with migrating in from a previous FS and it just does not move them, at all! Even with immediate balance... I guess cos it cannot get the measuring right? Any ideas as I need to get this working!

    Problems with Measuring & Balancing

    Thanks. I am resetting Windows permissions right now on whole 80TB pool (so might be a while!). Yeah I had files and brought them into the Pool. I am not using Disk Space Equalizer (Covecube recommends NOT to use other plugins with SSD plugin) but SSD Plugin allows ordered placement etc and that isnt happening (probably all down to the permissions and failure to perform measurement on the pool).

    Google Team Drive?

    Sorry if these are dumb Q but not used a Stablebit product for a few years now... I have a GSuite account with unlimited storage. Someone told me that CD requires you specify the size of your drive before you "create" it and I wonder how that works with an Unlimited capacity drive? The posts above seem to imply a hard limit of 9.5Tb or is a Team drive different from a GSuite account?

    Stable Bit Twitter Giveaway cheating

    I can see lots more cheaters still trying - people who follow no-one or just tweet once a week to enter or have only ever tweeted to try to win. By all means let them promote your products but they should have zero chance as they are cheating and having multiple entries too. Bugged me when I tweeted myself to try to win and saw all the fake entries. I'm after a 2nd licence as I split my PCs and want Drivepool on both now See this https://twitter.com/aidzburgerz/followingand guess what the accounts he follows all enter every week too.. so this guy is doing 5 entries a week....

    No Videos at all?

    I thought I'd have a look for YT videos on how SCD works, maybe reviews etc... and nothing. Seems a yawning void that may affect sales???

    Provider Speeds Feedback

    I'm interested to know what providers give what speeds for uploads. i.e. if I have a gigabit connection (I don't) which providers will allow me to maximise that speed when uploading? Please reply with 1) Your upload speed (both advertised and best real world speed ever achieved or Speedtest.net result) 2) Your provider you tested 3) The speed you got with that provider If you have slow upload speed and you maximise that, that sort of info isn't really needed.. I am interested in which providers support the fastest REAL WORLD upload speeds... Thanks in advance Meth

    Provider Speeds Feedback

    Just take HDD and upload via his BB (not direct) cos it would be miles quicker.. Virgin 200 has 12 upload speed official not 10... Either way.. remains comically slow compared to gigabit up! I can't get BT fibre but VM is fine, except they are "upgrading" my area as it got congestion recently. For 8 years it has been great and always the full speed.. until last 3-6m... Central London you can get gigabit to residential properly (Hyperoptic)... But back to the question.. can U max your 12 or 18 upload to Google Drive? Amazon Cloud etc?

    Good point.. useful to know that as well.. I'm UK like you.. but I am thinking I might take a HDD next time I go visit my friend in HK with gigabit upload speed....

    Amazon Cloud Drive - Why is it not supported?

    If it IS supported now could the topic be amended? If it ISN'T could the 1st Post be updated with current status/ETA/speed limitations etc I note with a LOT of interest that ACD is now much cheaper https://www.engadget.com/2016/08/24/amazon-unlimited-cloud-storage/and actually forgot I got a 2 year deal on this which I have not used.. so would love to use your product with this....

    Current Flexraid (pooling only) user looking for an alternative

    Proper non tapatalk post! Yes, I used FR and also got licence-cheated (IMHO)... DrivePool works well, offers SSD caching. Licence belongs to you not your hardware. Support is more active than FR (go to forums and compare Drashna vs Brahim). Offers duplication of files (not avail under FR). Add SnapRAID (Free) if you want parity protection too.

    Buy it. You won't regret it. You don't get screwed over for hardware changes like Flexraid and the product does so much more than just pooling and again much better than Flexraid pool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Some issues & feedback with DP

    EDIT: Should make out I am pretty pleased with DrivePool but no software is perfect!! The "Other" category. I saw a nice post explaining how it's all the odds and ends etc but each of my HDDs seems to have 500Mb or more of this. Does DP do any cleaning of this junk? Does it also check or recreate missing Recycle bins? I am thinking that if it does then I might delete these and see if the recreated ones are less space used? It just seems that any good program should be as clean and tidy as it can be!!! DP doesn't seem to respect its own placement rules. I have a "scratch" HDD for most usage. But I see DP is doing downloads and other intensive actions on other HDDs not in the rules. DP also seems to create files on drives that the file placement rules say NO to... but with empty directories. I have manually remove such directories from all HDDs in the pool but they keep re-appearing. You don't see them of course as they are inside the hidden folders on each HDD but why create something that isn't needed? Also makes it harder to find where files physically are if you need to sort out a mess later. Could DP not have functionality to delete such empty directories it creates. Not directories that have been user created though as some people might need empty dirs or some programs look for them to store save files in. Q: Does DP have a universal recycle? If a network access user deletes a file from the pool is it totally gone or could it be moved to a temporary Bin that could either be manually or automatically/regularly emptied? Useful if your family accidentally hit Delete on that 10Tb "Videos" directory!!!!??? One nice feature on Flexraid (included in its Pool functionality) is the ability to mark the directory date with the date of the latest file created within it. Might not seem useful but it can be handy to be able to sort directories by file accessed date (your most active directories can be on top of list). Worth "borrowing"?
