  1. Hi! It looks to me that this is a task for a syncronization software. Using DP (preferably on a local server or a NAS) is perfect for backups and give you centralized access to your files. But putting the files there is something you have to do yourself. To automatically move/copy files from and to a USB that is connected/disconnected frequently will need software that detects the USB when its present and then check if this is the same USB as last time. Personally I use AllwaySync to do this. It stores a metadata file on the USB to check if it's known. It's freeware up to a certain amount of files transfered per month, maybe you should try it. If you chose to get one or allready have a NAS at home, you can use AllwaySync to transfere your pictures to it. Why don't you use a cloud service like Dropbox or Onedrive. These services can syncronize files between several computers and keep all computers up to date as long they are connected to the internet. It cost money if you need more space though... Hope my comments help :-) Roger J.
  2. Hi everyone. I have some older software that is unable to get data from network shares, and I wonder if there is a way to make a virtual Hard Drive in Windows 10 that points to a network share. Mapping a share doesn't work. Thanks! Roger J.
  3. Update: After some long time testing I've concluded that the USB contoller on my NUC6i3 was the problem. I connected the enclosures to my HTPC and I had no problems with the pool the next 30 days. Bummer... :-( , but also a relief to finally know why I had such problems. I'd like to say thanks to Christoffer for giving me some pointers in finding the cause of my problems. I have now made the decision of turning my 5-year-old high end gaming pc into a VM-/file-server. I bought some extra RAM, and a LSI SAS-card to get enough ports and speed for my drives. Now I have to get myself familiar with Hyper-V and how to set up VMs. A lot to learn, but I'm enjoying the entire process. Thanks.
  4. Open folder properties, go to the security tab->advanced and change the owner to administrators or your own username. Needs to be done for each root folder. Remember to include changing the owner on all subfolders. Roger J.
  5. I assume the software I'm looking for will place deleted/original files in a "recycle bin" type of folder. I have had a look at AllwaySync, but it doesn't look much like a backup software to me, even if it works similar to what i need. Roger J.
  6. As long as all of the drives in your pool are inside the enclosure it will show up as usual. Nothing special you need to do really. Roger J.
  7. What do you mean? Wouldn't this be a backup solution? I am not going to use anything else than hard drives for my backups. Wether the hard drives are placed in the same computer case as the server, or in another enclosure next to it wouldn't make much of a difference in my opinion. Roger J.
  8. I am considering to make two separate pools and instead of using duplication on a single pool, use some kind of software to synchronize the two pools to keep them equal. The reason for this is to be able to recover accidentally deleted or altered files that is shared on the network. Do someone here have some thoughts on if it is a good way to go, or maybe recommend other solutions to be able to recover deleted/altered network files. Roger J.
  9. I found a driver update at highpoints website and I'm trying it out to see if there's some improvements...
  10. Sorry for VERY late response to this post. I have just now uploaded the logfiles. I have also some additional information. In an attempt to fix my problem I bought the HighPoint’s RocketStor 6114V 4-Bay USB-C RAID Storage Enclosure. It took less than two days before the disks inside lost their Connection. At the same time four disks lost their Connection in the ICYBOX enclosure leaving only one disk operational. I also see that DP remeasures and check duplication consistency every two hours or so after I started using the Highpoint enclosure.
  11. I use an 8-bay USB enclosure to store my hard-disks for my DrivePool. Over the years I have noticed that the pool tend to stop responding or lose some of its drives when the pool is getting low free space. Only solution I've found is to turn off the computer and enclosure, disconnect power to enclosure -> turn it on to empty the psu -> connect the power-cord again and then turn everything on. The pool will now work for approximately 24-36 hours. When the pool is not responding nothing happens when I try to open it in explorer and all files are inaccessible from other network devices. Windows is also less responsive when the pool has stopped and most times I need to do a reset. I am not sure how much space that's left on the pool when these problems start to occur, and if it's a percentage of the total pool size or if it's available space per hard-disk that cause the pool to stop responding. If I'm going to guess it's probably less than 8% of total pool space. I have also experienced this in the past with another setup, where I used a workstation with internal drives(no USB enclosure). At that point I was so fed up with this problem that I thought going for something completely different would fix my problems. I hope you can give me some pointers to what's the cause and how this can be fixed. Roger J.

    Running out of RAM

    In my home I have several computers that use files from my server. One that is keeping a large number of files open is my HTPC with Kodi running. Whenever this computer is running I get 1030 files opened in the Performance-tab in my DrivePool-app.

    Running out of RAM

    Hi! My server is now using 95% of its RAM and I've attached a few pictures of my running apps and services. No single app or service stands out when it comes to RAM usage. PS: For those who wonder, the language in "Performance Monitor.png" is Norwegian.

    Running out of RAM

    Hi! I'm slowly running out of RAM on my NUC6 which I use as a server, and I wonder if someone else is having the same issue. I have tried to close all of my services and apps that is running, and now even a fresh install of windows 10 1803 didn't help in stopping the memory fill. I Have 8GB of RAM and a 52TB pool. There are no apps or services that are reporting a huge memory use in task manager. I have no available memory in the memory tab, only memory set a side for later use, and it is shrinking. I also see a higher cpu usage than normal and constant writing to my system disk. Any suggestions on how to fix this is appreciated. Roger.
  15. ...late reply coming... busy with other things I know the disks in the pool needs space to write the files. But in cases where the pool consists of many disks, and at least two of them have enough free space to write the file, DP should start writing on these two instead of rewriting on top of the existing file on a "full" disk which causes this error. (that became a long sentence )
