  1. Sorry Never got back. I had the problem with the drives going missing because of the removal of the drive letter. I used the workaround Chris mentioned with the Diskpart and I was sure that would fix the problem. Unfortunately, I had the same problem. One thing I did find worked great was the use of RED 2.2. Stablebit Drivepool is still the best program for JOBD service.
  2. Hope Chris is doing okay as I haven't been on in quite a while. Question to look into. Been a user of StableBit for a long long time. Even prefer it over Windows 10 Storage spaces. Recently a drive started giving problems. Wasn't sure what to do. it resided in a Probox 8 and preformed great for many years on win 7 pro. When I changed over to Win 10 Pro, I noticed the count of directory entries on each of the Pool Partitions. The Drive that was giving me problems had all of them too. Most were empty due to the rolling scheme I had set up to ensure all drives would be
  3. For A LONG Time. Stablebit allowed you to add/remove/use a drive with no letter designation. Worked great with windows 7. Only when I moved to Windows 10 Pro did the problems start to compound. I have now established that Stablebit is UNstable unless it had a Drive designation on all drives in the pool. This has limited me to the limitations once again. With 8 TB and 4 TB drives. When one goes offline for a unknown reason, I feel as this is not a nice thing. I have assigned ALL drives and partitions and I am out of letters. I can only hope someone in the forum can fix this bec
  4. I have uninstalled StableBit Drivepool once for that very reason. One of the antivirus programs had locked it out. As you have found out your data is still there on the drives but cannot be accessed by Drivepool unless you go under the GUI. My advice is the one I offer. 1. Goto all of the drives and move your files from the PoolPart to the Base tree of the drive. For example... PoolPart.37ad71b3-16ca-45c4-8c66-34380f727842 Drill Down and you find TV Series on mine on one of my drives. I move the TV Series with a simple Right Click to the same directory as the above P
  5. Its a little late in the game but here goes. The biggest task will be allowing your drives to Balance with the Proper File Settings. For Example Mine. My system is set up according to the Alphabet Sweet and Simple. Drive Pool 1 is set to T: and Labeled as TV Series - subfolders # thru Z This allow Sonarr to run and update TV Series. All active Shows are set to use Season Folders with Format for Shows as Covert Affairs - 01X01-02 - Pilot. When the Series has ended and all episodes are viewed. The Show is marked as UNMonitored. Then it is optimized for TV using the settings in
  6. Answers to my questions. Thanks. The only addition to the question is #2. If the drive is detached from mine and then I go to another computer. I have a valid CloudDrive on it Can I log into the Drive on the other computer. Explanation: I am cleaning and maintaining an inventory of custom pens for a website. If I want to work on the database, I have to download the files. Takes a while, and upload it back. Drive has High Res photos of Pens that don't need to be moved up and down.
  7. Chris, I think the problem is a little hard to explain but here is the problem. Windows AKA (microsoft) loves to reboot your system for any reason. When the system shuts down, it loses the links to the Cloud Drive. Upon reboot, my system can take up to 10 minutes to find and reread the drive. When you have a lot of accounts on Cloud Drive, you can wait for 30 minutes for all to come online. And it seems like every few days, there is some reason to reboot. I have tried detaching the drives from the system but the same happens and sometimes I have to manually reconnect them. N
  8. You might want to uncheck #5 in Drive Pool also. The plugins work believe me. But they can work too good. #5 Will keep checking your Google Drive and will give you an error. Can't say why so much as I think it has to do with the Throttle or Limits of the Google Space. Mine quieted down when I unchecked it. Having a fast connection works great too I can pump about a TB a day to different acounts. Best advise is to Set a key to your drive to keep Google from peeking at your stuff. They do watch their servers and will ban you. I know, got the email and have been banned from the regular
  9. The only other answer I know how to do is Setting the File accounts to ensure so files get moved or deleted under owner and only access the drive with an account that is read only. Trust me, it's a pain in the butt but it works to ensure nothing gets moved or deleted unless it is by the owner. I had a user on my system trying to delete things just because they were mad at me. Learned my lesson and kicked them out of my house and off my system.
  10. Well the time has finally gotten here. 1. Is the StableBit Cloud Drive able to be read from the browser side by logging into the provider. Such as using One Drive or Google Drive? Simple question, not to stir the pot. I have a lot on the Browser side and do not wish to upload it again. and Vice versa. 2. According to the info I have, If you create a small cache with the Cloud drives and bind them with DrivePool. Plex does not know the difference. Is there a restriction to having multiple computers attached to the same cloud drive if each has the CloudDrive and DrivePool License?
  11. The Best method I have found is a leaf blower attached to a flexable hose. With the Computer off, I attach a vacumn cleaner sucking the dust to the front of the case. I start from the back and move forward. As is said. Dust goes in places you don't want. DVD Drive Blu Ray etc. Try to keep the spray to a minimum and take your time. Be extra careful when blowing out the power supply. No moisture and make sure it is clear of all dust before restarting. Burned up a good power supply being in a hurry.

    Lost my pool

    Chris can correct me if I'm wrong but COVEFS is or was a type of pointer in the Stable version of drive pool. I never fully understood the reason it was used but all I know is if was left there when you moved all of the files from under the PoolPart, things happened and not the way you wanted. Just to ease your mind. Moving a file from a subdirectory does not cause the file to move. Just the entry. Moving a file to another drive letter DOES cause the file to move. I have found that if I have made a mistake on settings and I have duplicates, I can move the files from under th
  13. I have them at both the latest Beta Now. As was said before, Was Kind of scared to use Beta Versions because of the warnings about Beta Versions. Updates, Fine Betas No. After I updated both, I did notice a drive refusing to show on DrivePool as an unpooled partition. Can't add a drive if DrivePool can't see it. Since it is a USB drive, I am draining it and will reformat it. clean out the device driver and see it DP can see it. The one thing I can say, is I wish the OS wasn't so confusing. A drive should not need it's own personal version of a driver to work. There have b

    Lost my pool

    britgeezer, Done that a dozen times. Can tell you that Thanks to Chris and Alex, the solution is a little complex but doable. Possible Problem... Is DrivePool using drives not installed in a system. Such as USB Drives, Cloud Providers, Network Links if so, Disconnect them all. Disconnect all drives that have DrivePool used and build you a fresh install. Do not install DrivePool until you have looked at each drive and verified the filesystem on each partition on the drives. You can at that time move all files from the Hidden PoolPart to a Temp Filename. Then delete the c
  15. Came across a problem last week and wanted to ask. DrivePool (Latest Beta Version BTW) - When system restarts, Re-check, of for some reason. Default seems to be the order in which the system has identified the drive. IE D: 3434395 (Disk 1) thru X: 3435787654 (Disk 15) Drive Cloud (Latest Version) Settings in drive pool: duplicate only. 2 Virtual Drives set at 10TB List as Disk 16 & 17) I have watched it go thru a recheck many times and it always starts and ends that way. I was tempted to try to link the Drive Cloud and Drive Pool together with the Drive Cloud handling a
