  1. If it's Stablebit Telemetry Remover, I wanna pre order!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I'll still support you guys no matter what, you know that. I'll even continue to buy whatever products SB releases next even if I don't use it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have to agree with Wiidesire on this one. To be blunt, Alex is so completely wrong on this I don't even know where to begin. I currently use unRAID right now even though I own two DP licenses. My reason? Folder split level. I don't have the need or desire to go into hidden folders every time I want to drop new episodes of TV Show X into my pool. In this day and age, it's silly to expect the user to do that. I would prefer to be running Windows and DP since the rest of my network is all windows but I will not be transferring all my data back till this folder split level is resolved. That's not a threat in any way shape or form. I even bought a cloud drive license even though I don't use it. I bought it to support Alex and the continued development of SB products. I usually stay pretty quiet on here but Alex saying he doesn't see a need for it kinda pisses me off. Makes me curious if he forgot who pays for this software. That would be us, the customers. Again, to be blunt, I honestly don't care if Alex sees a need for it or not. If it gets requested frequently, like Chris has said it does, then Alex needs to address it. It's that simple.

  4. Ahhhh crap, ya got me on that one. I wasn't very specific. I guess the Tuesday I am referring to is the Tuesday after that feature goes beta Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. No problem, I don't mind waiting till Tuesday.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. This would be great. You know I'm on another platform right now but I do want to get back to using using Drivepool. It was just a pain in the butt and way too time intensive to keep going into the hidden folders trying to track down what Drive a TV series was on in order to add new episodes in the same location. So I needed a less time intensive solution. So tell Alex to get on it I wanna use my DP licenses again! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I'm sorry to quote this, but the way you said it, just cracked me up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Aren't those $30 HP expanders the old SAS1, 3Gb/s cards? I assumed they all were and would hit the 2TB drive limit. Hoping someone with more knowledge can correct me on the 2TB limit if I am wrong. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I know what the OP is trying to achieve and it is something that always bugged me as well. Is there any way to submit a feature request to Alex for this specific type of placement aka folder split level. Example: if the folder split level was to only split the top folder let's call it TV Shows, and TV series you put in there could go on any disk. However once a TV Show folder was created such as "NCIS", all subsequent folders or files would be placed within the NCIS folder on that same disk. This would eliminate my, the OP's, and I assume a bunch of other users frustration. For my use case it was a pain when let's say I added a new season of TV Show "X". New files would go on whatever disk based on my balancer settings. When in reality it would make a lot more sense to keep episodes of the same series on a specific disk with the rest of the episodes from that series. The only option we currently have is to go into the hidden pool parts folder on that specific disk and move those files manually which is kinda counter productive.

  11. Not till you move that data into the hidden pool part folder. This is completely normal and how it is supposed to work since added a drive with data already on it. I'm on my phone so I can't link you to the article but I believe it's called pre seeding a drive or something like that. Check the wiki and it will walk you through the steps. It's extremely simple.

  12. I wish you the best of luck. I've sent nasty grams to all three addresses in the past and they are ignored. I was never able to escalate it any further than that as they also wouldn't respond to voice mails. I wish we could force them to buy their junk product back at the purchase price. I'm half tempted to buy more new ones, take out the good backplanes, if I get any good ones, and return it to the vendor. Atleast I'd be able to salvage something out of them and then the vendor could RMA it back to Norco. They are just complete garbage any way you slice it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Welcome to the world on Norco. I have (4) brand new 2212 chassis that had more than one faulty backplanes in each of them. I received a initial response from them and did receive one replacement backplane with the same issues you described, no pins on the molex connected and a broken SAS port. After that, no further communication or replies from them. I decided my only action is to scrap $1,000 worth of chassis and chalk it up to it costs money to get educated. To be blunt, Norco is complete garbage. And their support is pathetic at best. I switched everything over to Supermicro 24 bay chassis and then onto HGST 60 bay chassis. I will never buy Norco again.

  14. You can reuse it. If it won't let you activate it, send in a support ticket and they will deactivate it from your old system. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I was meaning more like 20+. I started seeing slow down around 25-30 drives but the betas improved that. I wouldn't think you would have any issues at all with 6 disks. This may sound really stupid but by chance are those 6 disks spun down/asleep when this happens? I could see it hanging while the disks spin up. Is the disks are all spun up and it's still hanging, I would shoot an email to support as this is defiantly not normal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I've noticed similar behavior with a large amount of disks. From working with Chris, improvements have been made to Scanner in the new betas to address some of this. Again, this is assuming your talking about a large number of disks. If your only connecting a couple, then better wait for someone else to respond as this may be an unrelated issue.

  17. If your just installing on the client for the purpose of using the GUI to manage the actual Drivepool on your NAS, then no you don't need another license. This is a feature built into Drivepool for this exact use case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Removed I didn't read the "other than the Scanner interface" Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Not sure what all you have tried, so this what comes to mind from my own recent stroll down this path... Go to "Settings", then "Scanner Settings", click on the S.M.A.R.T. Tab and check the box "Throttle Queries" as well as check the box "Do not query if the disk has spun down". Hopefully that will get you moving in the right direction.

  20. Sorry, I thought that comment was in reference to the OS reinstall. My bad Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. This may sound silly. But have you tried to just reinstall Drivepool since it isn't showing up? Sounds to me like the in place upgrade/install didn't keep Drivepool. I'm pretty confident if you reinstall DP all will be well. I've moved drives from machine to machine, reinstall DP and everything shows up just like I expected. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. If your asking on how to do a license swap between machines just go into the GUI of Scanner, click on "Settings" then click on "Scanner Settings" then click the tab on the right "License". From there "View License Details" and click deactivate. Make sure you have your license key email to save some time or at least copy/paste that license key in a safe place. What this does is removed that specific license from being tied to that specific hardware. Reinstall whatever version of Scanner on your new hardware and your license will be able to be activated on the new machine. Hope that helps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Although mine are not external drives, I have mine set up similar to what your wanting. I have multiple pools. I call my two main pools NAS001 and NAS002. I also have backups pools that reside on totally separate chassis called BKP001 and BKP002. After my backups are done, I simply disconnect that JBOD chassis and the pool just doesn't show up till it's reconnected. Drivepool doesn't seem to care. Hope that helps.

  24. I'm sure it's more of a pain than what's it worth. I'll leave mine how it's set. Just thought it was worth asking. From our side convo, about 27TB transferred so far and still a bunch to go! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. I was just wondering this myself and had already looked at the ordered file placement. My question to this is similar but slightly different than the way that balancer states it works. For me let's assume I'm transferring media and specifically TV shows. So I'm gonna transfer 6 seasons worth of "TV Show A" and 10 seasons of "TV Show B". If I read the balancer description correctly it's going to completely fill one drive then move onto the next one which means by the time it gets all the way down to "TV Show K" it may end up splitting that directory simply because it's out of physical space. So now my question becomes is there any way to keep and entire folder/sub folder together without filling each disk to full then moving on? Like the OP, I don't care which disk it uses as long as each series is all together. And to be completely honest, I like the way the default does it where let's assume you have 100 movie files and 5 disks, it will put one movie on each of the five drives then start over to keep everything balanced. That works great for individual files as it really doesn't matter where they are. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
