    Quiks reacted to Quinn in [HOWTO] File Location Catalog   
    I've been seeing quite a few requests about knowing which files are on which drives in case of needing a recovery for unduplicated files.  I know the dpcmd.exe has some functionality for listing all files and their locations, but I wanted something that I could "tweak" a little better to my needs, so I created a PowerShell script to get me exactly what I need.  I decided on PowerShell, as it allows me to do just about ANYTHING I can imagine, given enough logic.  Feel free to use this, or let me know if it would be more helpful "tweaked" a different way...
    You gotta know PowerShell (or be interested in learning a little bit of it, anyway) All of your DrivePool drives need to be mounted as a path (I chose to mount all drives as C:\DrivePool\{disk name}) Details on how to mount your drives to folders can be found here: 
    http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q4822624 Your computer must be able to run PowerShell scripts (I set my execution policy to 'RemoteSigned') I have this PowerShell script set to run each day at 3am, and it generates a .csv file that I can use to sort/filter all of the results.  Need to know what files were on drive A? Done.  Need to know which drives are holding all of the files in your Movies folder? Done.  Your imagination is the limit.
    Here is a screenshot of the .CSV file it generates, showing the location of all of the files in a particular directory (as an example):

    Here is the code I used (it's also attached in the .zip file):
    # This saves the full listing of files in DrivePool $files = Get-ChildItem -Path C:\DrivePool -Recurse -Force | where {!$_.PsIsContainer} # This creates an empty table to store details of the files $filelist = @() # This goes through each file, and populates the table with the drive name, file name and directory name foreach ($file in $files) { $filelist += New-Object psobject -Property @{Drive=$(($file.DirectoryName).Substring(13,5));FileName=$($file.Name);DirectoryName=$(($file.DirectoryName).Substring(64))} } # This saves the table to a .csv file so it can be opened later on, sorted, filtered, etc. $filelist | Export-CSV F:\DPFileList.csv -NoTypeInformation Let me know if there is interest in this, if you have any questions on how to get this going on your system, or if you'd like any clarification of the above.
    Hope it helps!

    Thank you very much for grabbing the files.  I do see them this time, so yay.
    I've flagged the logs for Alex (the Developer) so he can take a look at them.

    I was originally wondering what happened to the fast responses I'm normally used to on the forums and noticed the whole cloud drive forum hadn't had any replies. Then I went up a level and saw little replies from anyone!
    Then, I found this lonesome thread with updates recently.
    Take your time and feel better man. We all appreciate your help on this forum. It's been lonely without you, so I'm glad to see that you're back .

    And I'm finally home!!
    I still (again) have a drain in my side.  I also have 2 stents installed in my bile duct, as there is "big gaping hole" due to the surgery to remove the gall bladder.
    And after both installations, it irritated my GI tract enough to cause serious pain, and to vomit a small amount of blood. This is what caused the "acute attack", both 2-3 days after the installation of the stent. 
    I have a surgery follow up in a day or two, and then I go back in 3 months to get the stents removed. 
    I'm not 100%, but it's fantastic to be home!
    I'm back to doing tickets, but it may take a day or two to get all caught up.  If it's urgent PM me the ticket number.

    Quiks got a reaction from Christopher (Drashna) in Restarting CloudDrive Application   
    I went ahead and installed the latest version, 802 over my 777 install. It looks like doing this requires me to restart anyways, haha. 
    After restart, CloudDrive correctly started uploading again.
    I'll add to my notes that restarting "StableBit CloudDrive Service" is the proper way to restart CloudDrive without restarting the machine.
