  1. Just be careful to monitor the heat, specially if they are bunched together.
  2. Hi WingNut, sorry for slow response, was working with Support to test a few things. I totally agree that 1 minute is excessive but, it was really just to help me test quicker. The testing completed I can now conclude that this is very unlikely an issue with DrivePool. I disabled the CloveCube device in device mangler and the pool drive went offline. I also stopped both DrivePool services. The drives still did not sleep. So this tells me it's very unlikely to be DrivePool related. Anyway, here is an excerpt from my response to Christopher in the sup
  3. Product: StableBit DrivePool Version: I've an issue where no matter how many fans and maxing out the speed setting on the fans the hard drives are getting to over 40c. I've set the windows sleep timer for all the disks in Advanced Power to sleep in 1 minute but, this isn't happening and I believe this is due to DrivePool somehow making the OS think the disks are in use when they are in fact idle. I'm currently running 8x8tb pool and also a 4*12tb pool and both pools have exactly the same problem. Do you think this is a possibility? If so, any tips on how I might be a
  4. All fixed. Thank you very much for the swift work and resolution!
  5. That's not the same error as us, it's totally different. Suggest you start another thread and log a ticket. Also, read through a thread before posting.
  6. OK, so I just rebuilt my server for a third time in 2 days and it's now at 1511. I've installed the release (not RC) of stablebit and then accessed an exe on the server and ran this on the laptop from the server. Running a remote exe from the DP worked fine for me.
  7. Don't bother with the RC above, it has exactly the same issue (I'm using it). I can't rollback as mine is a new install straight from Microsoft using the Windows Media Creation tool so I don't have an old version of Windows 10 to install/rollback to. Just FYI: Microsoft no longer host older versions of Windows 10 so I would have to get an older copy from somewhere else. I'm amazed this got through testing, i mean, it was tested, wasn't it Cove????!!!!
  8. Yeap, EXACTLY the same problem here. Copying files TO the pool via network share creates an instant BSOD.

    DriveBalancing - OFF

    That's what I've done, thanks. What a about the other tabs of Balancers and File Placement?

    DriveBalancing - OFF

    Thanks! I've got "Do not balance Automatically" selected but I can't find a trigger option to deselect? Do I have to be concerned with any of the slections in the Balancers tab or the File Placement?

    Hi Guys i use DrivePool with SnapRAID and I think i made a silly error and have now lost data. I setup DrivePool and left it to BALANCE files out across disks. SnapRAID is sort of like a software RAID. I lost a disk and asked SnapRAID to restor but I think in the time between purchasing a new disk/install, DrivePool has re-balanced my files, probably breaking the SnapRAID parity data. Now, if this is correct, and it probably is, this is clearly my fault as I configured stuff wrong. What I would like to know is how do I make SURE 100% that any and all file balancing/moving is tu
  13. Hey Mick, Did you have MM before Drivepool and use a drive map backin the day? MM are correct, drive maps are not supported anymore however, they are wrong in that MM does not always tell you about historically added media. For example, only tonight I found out that my Sons Of Anarchy failed to start. Quick look in collection management and it was mapped to my old X drive. Deleted the show and readied via UNC and all working fine. Does that help? Other than that, MM works perfectly via Drivepool and UNC maps.
  14. Hi Stablebit! Quick question with DrivePool. I currently have 7 disks FULL of data, NTFS, that I want to pull in to the pool. I've installed Drivepool but, i can't see the existing data within the pool. I tried using this trick http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q4142489 but even though I have show hidden files etc. I cannot see a hidden directory called PoolPart.xxxx on the test drive (Original drive D:) that I've allocated to the pool (X:) Any ideas? Thanks!
