  1. ok you dont have them mounted to a folder (option in windows so they dont appear with drive letter) - so we can scratch that idea just a guess - but do you have any symlinks or hardlinks set - that might point to the c/d drives that lightroom might see and follow? If you can add another drive via usb to laptop (not to the pool) and scan that with lightroom does it jump to the c/d drives as well? - if it does its not a dp issue
  2. are the 8 drives mounted to a folder that is on c or d? and c/d is not a single physical drive thats partitioned - as duel disk laptops are rare
  3. another way would be if you dont need duplication 1 dont add the disk to the pool 2 use backup software - set a job to copy the changed/added files to it - nightly job or similar simpler and you dont have to mess with FPR's that may get complex also you can detach it and move it to another pc without having to remove it from DP as it would throw an error
  4. "other" is any file it does consider part of the pool - so very much the problem the op had even if permissions related if the files were "ok" then they would have been part of the pool unicode is double byte characters to support non ascii characters - umlauts etc and windows/Dp supports those already
  5. remeasure can take a long time - hour or so on my 64tb pools - depending on speed of disks and the number of files - more files longer it will take. if DP - does not like a file it puts it in the "other" category (box) as its not considered part of the pool The user that DP runs under needs to have rights to all the files in the pool - ownership/read/write etc - i.e. full access - why did you change them - did you have an issue or did you do it anyway? if you have reset them maybe they did not get copied to each sub folder and file - or when you copied the files to the pool or when you created the pool they had old permissions which are conflicting and causing DP issues. Look in the DP log are you seeing permission errors or any errors?
  6. UmFriend is correct Plex only sees what DP presents to it as it sees the pool drive (virtual) and not the disks if a drive fails then the "other" copy is used so Plex or any app carries on as normal if you have duplication on. As for the streaming error - could be a number of reasons - one of which is the file was damaged by the disk failure or the disk was removed and plex then could not find the file....... If you have read striping on you can see in DP that it uses both disks at various times when presenting a file to application X - this does not radically change the speed of the read but if one disk slows (as other files are also being accessed at the same time on one disk) the other will be used etc etc. The speed of the read is the speed of the disk being used - no magic here. Basically if you want redundancy then you need more space for the duplication or be selective in which shows you duplicate - but you will need more space at some point.
  7. i think the "other" is part of your problem - if all the files are in the poolpart dir and nothing other than system vol info is outside the poolpart the other is files it is having an issue with so puts them in the other box. try a remeasure of the pool - that might improve things and sort out the inconsistent situation - everything will go to other initially - dont panic! another thing to check - are the permissions correct on those drives with other - i.e. does dp and the user its running under have rights to those files/folders etc
  8. veeam is free and very good and reliable
  9. the plugins can fight against each other so to test only have one enabled related to equalising the drive space (i dont bother with this as its just moving the deck chairs on the titanic and although its nice to see equal space used/unused per disk - it does not achieve much of anything and means a lot of extra copying and moving just to achieve this - does not speed up drives etc) run it for a day or so so you understand what it does and how the options affect the result rinse and repeat with the others then try combinations etc
  10. load the drive usage limiter plugin and/or drive space equaliser
  11. time to get a proper anti virus app and delete the ms one - you will have less grief
  12. i would raise a ticket to get direct help - as things might go fully south soon
  13. well thats a good one did not think anti virus would be the cause and its blocking excel,diskinfo scanner and drivepool hmm - not good
  14. 1 if you re-install it might but you can "just" set all the disks to scanned/good - it part of the gui 2 something odd with your setup i think regarding working not working - i wonder if it might be a dodgy card 3 might be in the card bios but not the m/b bios 4 restarting the service will not do that its the "same" as rebooting you PC
  15. even weirder is i dont have that enabled and i can see the smart for all disks connected to my 9211 sas controller question - did use use windows to format the disks via disk manager or some other utility?
