  1. My Rackmount Server

    Well - was adding discs but whatever works for you!
  2. My Rackmount Server

    I Still have to refer to this thread when adding a new drive to my WS2012r2 server to get the Dashboard working (so I'll put all the bits in so I can find it next time!!!): 1) Add Drive(s) 2) From an elevated CMD Prompt --> "wbadmin delete catalog" 3) Restart WseMgmtSvc 4) Run Dashboard and re-setup the server backup
  3. REFS in pool

    ...also there is a good table here that shows what version of ReFS is supported by what Windows Version https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReFS
  4. REFS in pool

    FYI - on my Windows 10 Pro for Workstations box the ReFS drives have been upgrade (automatically) to ReFS V3.3 (I had formated them as V3.2 which was the latest at the time). PS C:\Users\natha> fsutil fsinfo refsinfo C:\Users\natha\Desktop\MountPoints\045f6 REFS Volume Serial Number : 0x52e2b127e2b10fe9 REFS Version : 3.3 Number Sectors : 0x00000003a37c0000 Total Clusters : 0x000000000746f800 Free Clusters : 0x0000000000011f0d Total Reserved : 0x0000000000078408 Bytes Per Sector : 512 Bytes Per Physical Sector : 4096 Bytes Per Cluster : 65536 Checksum Type: CHECKSUM_TYPE_CRC64
  5. Ordered File Placement - Config wrong?

    I think I've got it sorted. I swapped the order of the first two discs and it is now filling up the ones underneath.
  6. Ordered File Placement - Config wrong?

    Thanks - but same effect (though I no longer get the yellow warning). A side effect of this issue is that when I then try to add a new rip, DP will try to add it to one of the the disks that does not have enough space so I get a windows warning saying the drive is full.
  7. I've got the following setting for the Ordered File Placement but it does not seem to be filling up the drives lower in the order. I do have some File Placement rules set to put d folders only on drive "d232f" (as it is a Hitachi 8TB HDD, the rest are Seagate 8TB Archive Drives). I presume I've got some setting wrong. Thanks nathan
  8. NTFS vs REFS

    As a user of largish pools (2 x 50TB) that I've had on both NTFS, and ReFS I'd summary as follows: - NTFS : Subject to issues with file corruption. I lost an entire pool when I got some error with my controller and the disks.... chkdsk then decided to "help" by reallocating sectors in its file allocation table. Had to re-rip my entire collection over weeks (now I have 2 pools - one to backup the other) - ReFS : Never had an issue with file corruption (you can not even run chkdsk!).... and have not had any memory leak issues for the years I've been using ReFS..... till my new build this month! It was hard to pin down where the issue was as it was new Version of Windows, Mobo, Chipset, Mem, CPU (8700K) and Firmware/BIOS Settings. It is currently now working fine (but I did change RAM, reduce my OC and add 2 of the 3 ReFS Registry settings). Given the above I'd still suggest ReFS especially if you are on an existing system that is stable.
  9. How to format in ReFS after Windows Fall Creators Update?

    You have to update the Store to the latest version. Then do a search for Windows Pro and the option then appeared to me. It could have been a higher cost as I had a OEM Pro lic code
  10. How to format in ReFS after Windows Fall Creators Update?

    FYI - Windows for Workstation Pro is now on the Microsoft Store. Just paid for the upgrade and I've now got ReFS format support back. Cost me AUD$215 for the privilege.
  11. Any update on REFS?

    Too early to call it solved, but I seemed to have fixed the instability by changing my XMP RAM on the new build from G.Skill to Corsair. So far DP seems to be working well (before it would not load the GUI or the GUI would freeze once the memory had all been allocated). I also reinstalled DP (this took many attempts of installing / uninstalling various beta versions with windows complaining it could not find the correct MSI - but I got it sorted). Currently running on 852 instead of 871.
  12. Any update on REFS?

    ... also sometimes it the "Mapped File" that grows
  13. Any update on REFS?

    I've already migrated all the drives over to ReFS V3 / 64Bit / Check On. I'll have to have a think on what to do and why my new build is different to the old one.
  14. Any update on REFS?

    I'm really hoping you find something as my write speed to the pool is appalling (ends up going to 1KB/Sec after a time unless I reboot).... read speeds are OK.
  15. Any update on REFS?

    Job logged and Dump File sent. Here is a pic of my RAMMap.
