  1. Perhaps, I'm not sure that wouldn't be limited by my bus, I don't have an M.2 slot in this system. I think I'll try some small SATA ssds and see if I have enough to do RAID 5 and have Drivepool use them as cache. Otherwise I'll take Shane's suggestion and split up some of my existing HD into 500GB + remainder and mark the 500GB segments as "SSD" Most of the drive are on a LSI 9xxx-8i so are sharing that one controller. Maybe adding another controller would help.
  2. I am using a file sync tool that can run multiple file copies at one time. The problem I'm having is that DrivePool is picking the same physical disk for all four file write streams. I have 10gb network cards between a server and it's backup and with parallel file copies to a single drive limits performance. The pool is generally will balanced before the copies start. Using an SSD cache is not really a solution as often the total volume would exceed 500GB. Is there a way to force DrivePool to spread file operations across multiple disks?
  3. After some digging, it looks like searching the logs in C:\ProgramData\StableBit DrivePool\Service\Logs\Service for Error moving" will find the file names. C:\ProgramData\StableBit DrivePool\Service\Logs\Service>find /i "Error moving" *.log 13:20:41.2: Warning: 0 : [RemoveDriveFromPool] Error moving file from \\?\Volume{d92a9186-3303-4a0c-a481-ea38c7619713}\PoolPart.9c1fe6e2-37d0-4425-88c8-9fe5e99b8512\DL\somefile.txt to \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume29\DL\somefile.txt. Continuing removal. (Data error (cyclic redundancy check)) At the end of the drive removal you will also get a notice that the drive could not be removed due to files in use.
  4. I'm removing a drive that reported some uncorrectable errors. I have the live GUI service log displayed with drive removal logging "warnings" and am seeing: 13:20:41.2: Warning: 0 : [RemoveDriveFromPool] Error moving file from \\?\Volume{d92a9186-3303-4a0c-a481-ea38c7619713}\PoolPart.9c1fe6e2-37d0-4425-88c8-9fe5e99b8512\DL\folder...\file.txt to \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume29\DL\folder...\file.txt. Continuing removal. (Data error (cyclic redundancy check)) 1. Was the file migrated off the drive or left behind? 2. How do I get a listing of files not moved?
  5. Sometimes when I drag a single file between two folders on the same pool, windows does a copy instead of a move. Watching the DrivePool console shows that the file is being read and written to the same physical disk. This is also confirmed in task manager. (I have a new mostly empty disk in the pool). Drag tool tip says "copy" and the progress dialog says coping 1 item. The original file remains in the source folder. So far I've only noticed this on files with really long path names e.g. 186 chars + 93 filename = 279 total characters. Looks like the windows path-file length limitation.
  6. I too am having this issue on Server 2012 R2. I installed - Security and Quality Rollup updates for .NET Framework 3.5, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1, and 4.7.2 for Windows 8.1, RT 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 (KB 4471989) on 12/15. Should I uninstall the .NET update or xfer the license. I have a two system license and I'd hate to have my other system loose it's license.
  7. I recently had a hard drive go off line while at work so it was a bit until I could get back to it. Turned out to be a loose cable, and it came online with the next boot. It is now a few days later and DP has alerted with the attached image. I'm not sure if it is safe to proceed. There is a P:\System Volume Information folder in my pool
  8. Not my experience. I nearly always end up with a single drive at 100% utilization with about 40% read, 60% write I/O. Thanks anyway.
  9. I have a pool with 8 drives. I frequently am unzipping large archives or converting .RAR files to actual folders/files. When I do this, frequently the output is being written back to the same disk, or just a single disk leaving the other 7 disks idle. Is there a way to ensure that more than one disk is involved to speed things up? I considered using a placement rule for .zip and .r0xx files, but that just puts those files on one drive but doesn't assure that the outputs will end up on a different disk.
  10. On my system the default size of the balancing dialog does not include all of the content. Would be nice on some displays or zoom levels (e.g. vision impaired folks) to have a scroll bar.
  11. The Win10 box was an upgrade from Win7Pro. The lodctr /r command failed saying "Error: Unable to rebuild performance counter setting from system backup store, error code is 2". However the lodctr /e:perfdisk command succeeded and resolved the problem. Thanks.
  12. I don't know about dropping junctions, but I have no issues with having my Dropbox folder on Win10 pool drives.
  13. Do you have any diagnostic software for SMART data to see which disk(s) might be failing? I use CrystalDiskInfo to read that data. Also, have you run Windows disk check against each of the underlying drives?
  14. I'm trialing the release ( and current beta ( versions of DrivePool on Windows 10 Pro. The Disk Performance chart always reads "No disk activity on the pool" even during long file copies. I was expecting this to show currently active files per the documentation.
