  1. It's a Drobo NAS, and it's set up via CD as a Windows file share; I don't think Drobo NAS support iSCSI, and without a dedicated network connection, it would trash the WiFi mesh network that it runs on. I'm using Server 2016, so I have some options, but I need something that can be added to DP. At one point Christopher alluded that native access to the CD data was one of the most often requested features, and that was years ago. I'm still waiting... and hoping... As far as the recovery, no idea why it takes so long. File transfers to/from the NAS run around 115 MB/sec, so I'm sat
  2. Yes, but I want it to duplicate as part of my DP. Total drivepool size is 192 TB, and I don't want to manually determine which media files are copied to the NAS. I want a solution that has the NAS as part of the DP, included in the duplicated files, where I can specify which folders get duplicated on the NAS. So I need a way of adding a NAS to the DP, and it be readable from third party devices. Example: DrivePool has 5 folders, 2 of which are media folders. Four folders are set up for 2x duplication, and one folder is set up for 3x duplication. I want my NAS to count towards th
  3. Need some help - I've been waiting for CloudDrive to allow for non-encrypted storage. I have a main server with ~20 drives attached all using DrivePool, and I have a media player at my TV that physically connects to a local mesh access point. The speed between the mesh access points is good, but I still get "buffering" a lot when streaming from the server from the DrivePool. So when CloudDrive first came out, I was like great! I can install a local NAS device, have the DrivePool server put media on the local NAS device via CloudDrive, and then the server would count it towards duplicate sto
  4. Bump - any updates? I've been waiting since CD came out to do this... would love to set up a NAS to do this.
  5. Is there an update for this? This would be great for remote NAS devices being used for local media caches.
  6. Measured and rebalancing with 701, but the GUI has some glitches. And for whatever reason, when I reboot the server, any volumes without drive letters lose their labels and won't show up again in the pool until I assign a drive letter and restart the DP service.
  7. I may be missing the issue - what's the down side of having both types in the pool?
  8. The issue also seems to be with file names greater than 255 characters... Win10 is using the pool for file histories, and some of those directory structures get pretty long. That also caused the measurements to hang. I'm waiting for the pool to "heal" & rebalance after removing the long file/directory names, along with re-populating the dedup'd drives. That will probably take a week or so... so stay tuned.
  9. For future can we make sure both types work within the pool? I have data aware SAN's and tiered data on them that has to stay in the NTFS format to maintain compatibility with the SAN's, but those SAN's are pooled with stand-alone drives that are ReFS. That's working as it is, but if the pool has to be of homogeneous file type, it would prevent me from operating the pool as it is, and I could never move to ReFS in the foreseeable future...
  10. Ditto. I had to undo all deduplication (that took about a week). DP does not like dedup yet, so it would seem.
  11. With build 692 I seem to be having issues with dedup - it's set up on a couple of the larger disks, and direct drive access through Windows is working fine. However, DP will not successfully finish measuring the pool. It will measure all the drives, except the drives with dedup enabled.

    Measuring Speed

    I was using StableBit.DrivePool_2.2.0.652_x64_BETA.exe on WHS2011. I just upgraded to 655.

    Measuring Speed

    "Measuring" is taking a very, very long time (days). Is there a setting that would allow it to measure multiple drives at once or to increase the threads to get this done faster? DP Pool is ~90 TB with 30-32 drives.

    Duplication Warnings

    Remeasuring with 561 didn't fix it. And the problem originally occurred while using 634. I've re-installed 634; the pool has been measuring for over 24 hours. I'll let you know...

    Duplication Warnings

    Yes, why after the file and folder were removed, and I checked all the individual drives - the file and folder were gone from every individual drive, the duplication warning still persisted.
