  1. 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.
  2. I may be missing the issue - what's the down side of having both types in the pool?
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. Ditto. I had to undo all deduplication (that took about a week). DP does not like dedup yet, so it would seem.
  6. 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.

    Duplication Warnings

    Load cycle count, and yes using Scanner. No bad sectors, Scanner reports healthy other than the SMART warning. And maybe? But not sure, as I successfully moved the folder off the pool onto a Drobo, and even with the folder gone, not in the pool, DP continued giving me the duplication error for that folder & file.

    Duplication Warnings

    Kind of, one of the drives threw a SMART warning, and I have been having issues getting the pool to complete measuring, checking, and duplicating. Assuming the two may be related, I increased the duplication from 2 to 3 until the problem could be isolated and to ensure duplication was re-checked for all folders. And then I got that warning. And I'm currently on WIndows 8.1 Pro. I had previously used WHS 2011 and saved the directory in case I needed one of the backups. So no, the files were not in use by the OS at the time of this warning.

    Duplication Warnings

    Never mind, I recreated the directory with a dummy text file with same file name, and then it resolved the discrepancy. It's still odd it happened to begin with.

    Duplication Warnings

    I'm trying to resolve an issue with a "duplication warning" that has come up. "There were problems checking, duplicating or cleaning up one or more files on the pool." The file is from WHS client computer backup folder on the pool "\client computer backups\data.4096.127.dat." DP couldn't resolve it, so I moved the folder out of the pool onto an independent drive. The folder and the file are no longer on the pooled drive, but I'm still getting the error, and DP can't seem to fix it. I've rebooted, uninstalled version 561 and installed the latest beta, and went back to 561, but none of that has resolved the duplication warning issue. Please advise.
  15. Since you brought it up, any plans to implement a balancer by file size? That would allow DP to automatically shift large files to archive-oriented drives...
