  1. I am running in to something similar to this. Mine is heavily favoring one SSD rather than "spreading the love" to all 4 of my SSDs.

    SSD Optimiser

    Make sure SSD Optimiser is at the top of the Balancers order. Possibly below Stablebit Scanner if you have this installed. The balancers are used in order they are listed.
  3. I think it would be theoretically possible if you were so inclined to try it. Since drive pool is a service within Windows you would be asking for a good deal of trouble if you decided to try this. I suspect Windows Updating would cause you no end of trouble if you were ever to successfully get it running.
  4. Just ran in to this. Fixed now!
  5. Q1 - Drivepool isn't RAID, it's JBOD with awesome features. Q2 - I don't think it can/will do this. As far as I can tell, once the SSDs are full to their limits or if you use the scheduler it will just empty the SSDs. Others might have figured out what you are asking and likely know better. edited to add: This guy seems to be on to something.
  6. Ah, it's still early here. I'm not reading terribly thoroughly, yet. found.000 is where chkdisk throws "lost" files it finds on scan. For whatever reason the allocation table lost track of those files.I've never seen such a large number of them, but that's not to say it's not possible. Review the folder delete whatever you don't need, move everything else to a Recovered folder within your pool and forget about it. If it happens again, then get worried. If the condition of the disk is bugging you Stablebit Scanner is a good tool Stablebit sells, but there are free options that are just as good (but not automated) such as CrystalDiskInfo (my favorite tool). https://crystalmark.info/en/software/crystaldiskinfo
  7. The 129 MB partition is part of the underlying GPT partition structure and is normal. The scale that Microsoft uses for the representation of the volumes is phenomenally bad. It's only 129 MB and it's normal. IIRC it has something to do with recovery data. You can't allocate it, you can't expand the volume into it. It's just reserved space.
  8. Probably shadowcopy data. Check that Previous Versions tab.
  9. The LSI LOGIC LSI00276 6GB 16PORT adapter is a pretty good deal with the caveat that you will have the cables looping out and then back in to the case. When I got it @ $35 I figured I could deal with my already ugly closet server looking a lil bit funnier. And it's held up quite well. Amazon no longer has them @ $35, but Server Supply has them at $60. That plus some cables and that's still under $100. Amazon's cables to match: CableCreation Mini SAS 36Pin (SFF-8088) Male to 4 SATA ~ $15 each. editing to add: I found another 8 port internal only @ $66 at the same place.
  10. I have to search and look the fix for this up every time. Maybe the UI element to re-set the file system status could be made easier to find and understand? It seems like I have to manually set it to good, and then if I'd like Scanner to re-check it I set it to Unchecked and it should get checked on the next automatic scan.
  11. This answered my question, too. Though I suspected I already knew the answer, it's helpful to be sure.

    Duplication Warnings

    I only read 2 comments in, I should have finished reading. I've already created a dummy file to resolve it. If it happens again I'll try to collect logs. So... I can't remove the uncensored image. I can't remove an image once uploaded. I can't keep one image out of the post in favor of the other once uploaded. I can't delete the post. How annoying.
  13. I bought 5 x 3 TB WD Red NAS drives all in one shot 3+ years ago. 2 started this around the 2+ year mark. 1 or 2 Pending each. The 3rd waited until the warranty was almost up. I should have acted faster on the RMA. For each I "Ignored the warning" until SMART promoted it to reallocated or un-correctable. I was able to get 2 in for RMA, but the 3rd temporarily went back to normal for a while after a full regular slow format. And then shortly after the warranty ran out in the space of a week it jumped to 3 reallocated, then 5. No data loss, fortunately. I did the slow format 1 at a time so as to move along the progress from Pending to something else. Something to try as it is forcing a write to each sector. That or a Drive Wipe 0+1. Go HGST whenever possible.
  14. So I'm shutting down my server to remove one of the 5 drives showing a ton of bad sectors. I realize a bit too late "Doh! I forgot to jot down the serial" No problem. I have a bunch of notification emails. Surely they tell me which drive in the email, right? Right?! So now I'm restarting my server to jot down the serial number. edit: Actually, skimming through the alerts, there seems to be 2 versions of the alert emails. I think maybe the 1st time the event is noticed by the software, but subsequent notifications do not contain any detailed information.
  15. This can't be repeated enough.You can backup locally and duplicate all you like. Fire doesn't care.
  16. For the log files, the error reports are generally, VERY small. And the service logs get cycled out every 7-10 days, IIRC. So it doesn't keep a HUGH amount. - 6 x 20 MB log files and 1 in progress ~ 9 MB at the moment. That, and the troubleshooter actually compresses the logs prior to upload, so it should take up a relatively small amount of space. - Some people have very slow internet. I have decent internet, so... just sayin' And was this uploaded as part of a ticket? Or did you use the forum email address? - I used the same email address with these forums and my software registration. It was filled in on the Troubleshooter fields provided as was the url for this OP.
  17. It's been a little while. I was going to see if there was an update to the beta I'm using and checked this old thread. I've submitted the logs as requested. edit: Hmm - you might advise folks to clear out old logs before some dunce goes and uploads a bazillion old (and likely useless) log files with this tool. Anyway, I recreated the error so it should be near the end of the newest log file.
  18. From the beta you linked - every time you click the bitflock.com link... I sent the error report. Also - no further crazy temperature warnings have popped up since.
  19. One or more disks are overheating: WDC WD30EFRX-68EUZN0 ATA Device - 86˚F (Maximum: 32˚F) <--- Am I supposed to keep these drives in a meat locker? Model: WDC WD30EFRX-68EUZN0 Serial number: 2020202057202d4443573443324e4b50544c3831 <--- You are receiving this message because you have set up email notifications to be sent to this address from the StableBit Scanner. I suspect it's pulling the value from the Minimum operating temperature, but I immediately checked the drives and they were all at 82.x˚F.
  20. Example: Never fear! Stablebit Scanner is still working. Disk 1: 30% more disk scanned this week. No bad sectors found. Stats for nerds: Max Temp of 86°F and a Min Temp of 84°F. (max temp 158°F) Your Drive now has 1.238 TB free, down from last week by .32 TB. S.M.A.R.T. says your disk is healthy! (and S.M.A.R.T. is never wrong!) Etc. Etc.
  21. As I mentioned, after I finally was able to force G: out of pool I: I re-added it back to V: and it was back to working normally. I am hesitant to re-create this event, but if I ever do, I will remember to zip up the programdata folder and send it on over.
  22. So I did my periodic OS drive backup and set things to reboot after backup is complete and went on about forgetting about my server for a while. My setup: 5 x 3TB drives (D-H) Mounting to Drivepool V: 2 Drives are on the motherboard's 2xSATA-III ports and 3 drives are on an add-in SATA-III card. I come back and lo and behold - I have an additional Drivepool drive (I:) with 1 drive (G:). My usual drivepool (V:) drive with a missing drive (G:) and it's stuck in read-only mode (par for the course when missing a drive). and The inability to extricate my G: from the imaginary I: drive and my complete bafflement as to why the heck this happened. G: now has 2 unhidden drivepool-part folders and one hidden... Drivepool I: really really didn't want to let go of G: for some reason. Logically the flash drive temporarily bumped the G: drive out of place before the OS could re-arrange the drive letters back to normal. Drivepool panicked and created an additional pooled drive and I got a mess of drives and a bit annoyed at the whole thing. Eventually after several attempts to Remove, Force Remove, remove some more Drivepool completely locked up/crashed, I rebooted sans-flash drive and everything came back with Drivepool re-scanning the drives, probably also asking "What the Heck Just Happened?!" but at least it's working. Maybe you guys and reproduce this (it should be easy enough) and figure out a better way to handle it? Hopefully this doesn't come off too ranty. I love this product and recommend it to everyone who's thinking about RAID, but really just needs a JBOD with a hand full of folders protected. But I do feel that some amount of frustration should be conveyed.
  23. Hmm, I checked and restore, oddly, only lists Overwrite and Rename for existing files. I also will be requesting Skip! I also would dread having to change backup providers.
  24. Silly Question - why don't you just back up the logical DrivePool volume? My DrivePool drive is V: - user data is under V:\Shares\Users. V:\Shares\Users is monitored by Crashplan and backed up. And I just checked and I see v:\Shares\Users available for a 1 click restore.
