  1. yes you need a licence on each machine that has DP/Scanner installed AND - the versions of each program need to be the same on both machines
  2. Yes and Yes - with another version of scanner and dp on another machine in the same network
  3. Nope the free space stays the same - until its used as you may change say folder duplication to x3 in some cases - or back to x1 then calc free space gets complicated very quickly But 20.6TB is correct anyway as thats whats free at the moment
  4. yes it is just updated to the latest beta the other day was a new beta posted yesterday so i need to update again
  5. Ignore it - its normal and not an error

    Event log warning

    you can ignore them - i asked a long time ago and Christopher confirmed its a side effect of it being a virtual disk and nothing to worry about
  7. It depends on the OS Win10 will work but say 2012r2 will not or thats how it works for me with my 950 Pro's - unless 960's work differently
  8. Diskpart is accessed via the command prompt i.e. open a command prompt window type "diskpart" then type "/?" and it will list the commands available automount is one of them to get exit diskpart type "exit"
  9. I use SyncBackPro to backup my pool to my NAS and a second pool - works fine with no issues (does not use VSS) Point it at your pool drive rather than the individual drives @Pichu0102
  10. Not the full answer but mount your drives to a folder (dont need to have letters) and the "path" to the disk is shown by DP) Then IIRC you can then scan them in Windows - which version of windows are you using? The volume guid is i think (part guess) of the pool rather than a particular disk as its talking about a volume
  11. Question if you are renaming directories why are you using Move-Item? Rename-item would be what i would use. From a Dp perspective - does a balance begin after the script starts to run - which may be causing an issue if the directories being renamed are subdirectories of another which has also been renamed.
  12. My Win10 pc with 950 Pro is working fine with the same scanner version I'm using the Samsung driver rather than the Microsoft default drive via Samsung Magician - although that should not make a difference from what Chris has posted previously

    Maximum Space

    i was going by ... i created 6 1GB drives ... and ... looks like the space was slashed in half.... which indicates to me that he does have disks with duplication x2 on either way - i would ditch the vb setup and do it native

    Maximum Space

    You have duplication on? If so your 4gb pool can effectively store 2x2gb So turn off duplication and it will allow you to copy the 3gb file to the 4gb pool.
  15. You can get the same result with using the "Case" option under disk settings to group your drives Although not with a colour option
  16. Thanks for the work on the WD M.2 SSD drive Just updates to 3209 Beta and the smart data is appearing as expected Is the NVMe support for 2012r2 ever likely to appear? or is it an OS issue? Samsung magician can see the drive fine and the drives are using the samsung driver rather than the MS one
  17. Chris I think you miss read my post "Just because it's M.2 doesn't mean that it's NVMe, unfortunately. And it sounds like that's the case with the WD drive. It's probably running on AHCI still. " Thats why i stated its a SATA drive and as an ACHI device should be readable for SMART - never said the WD was a NVME drive. "Ah, they are NVMe 1.1, not 1.3 (which is what we support. " Well you do support 1.1 or the 950 on my win 10 machine would not show NVME Health info etc data as i posted So why does it work on one machine and not the other for the 950's?
  18. With the latest Scanner update i was looking forward to seeing SMART data for my NVME drives and my M.2 Sata card - but no luck Both NVME drives are Samsung 950Pro's the Sata is a WD Blue 1TB M.2 drive The 950's have no SMART/NVME details option in the UI only Disk details, Disk Control, Disk Settings and NO temp data The WD has Smart details but has virtually no info but does show temp data in the main UI Both Samsung Magician and CrystalDiskInfo see all three drives and can read the Smart data/temp data This is on 2012r2 and Scanner 3190 For Info - on my win10 machine Scanner 3190 can read a 950 Pro's Smart Data fine Any suggestions?
  19. Having tried this benchmark on my patched Win10 Pro 64Bit 6700k - no overclock - just xmp applied to the ram there are a few issues 1. disabling Spectre - actually disables Meltdown as well after a reboot 2. approx half way through the benchmark the screen goes blank and then corrupts (monitors go into standby) - most times it does come back - sometimes it does not - needing a hard reboot to get the machine working again. Possibly the nvidia drivers (390.65) which i think are the ones patched for M & S? - You can see the drop in capture3 when this occurs - in this case it came back as i was able to get the screen capture. 3. With both patches enabled i get a score of approx 8.5m - with both patches turned off i get approx 83M - is this realistic as i thought the effect was approx 30% from what i read in the press? Or is this a specific test - worst case if you do say a lot of database work?? 4. Maybe you need to make it clearer on the interface that a reboot is required to change the enabled/disabled state of the patches prior to clicking on them? Like the idea of this tool so thought i would report the issues i am seeing
  20. Yep you can do a Pool of Pools - has been available for a while now create your two separate pools then create a third and add each pool to the third then apply duplication settings to the master(third) pool etc - if thats what you want

    its not dead latest public beta is 881 - which i used for a week or two and was fine and i am now using 892 which works well http://dl.covecube.com/DrivePoolWindows/beta/download/changes.txt
  22. I had the same when i updated the bios of the pc - apparently there are some things DP etc checks for to see if the PC has "changed" - not sure what the others might be but Chris will chip in soon to advise. FWIW i updated the ssd bios on a couple of disks yesterday and that did not trigger a "transfer key" event
  23. cheap cpu's can be had on ebay as people will be selling older kit as they got something new for xmas
  24. Happy New Year! the i3 has a passmark of about 5000 that will do a one or possibly 2 transcodes - depending on what you are transcoding for comparison my qnap 853a with a n3150 (passmark 1600) can barely do a 1080p transcode - so you need a passmark of 2000+ to transcode on the fly a H264 1080p file - for HVEC and larger frame size you will need more power. Emby does have support for intel quicksync - although its still experimental - but does work - which can help to lower the load - the i3 will be better for this as well I pre transcode my video's so the clients can play them natively so the server does not work that hard - in that case a celeron would do fine as a file server
  25. is your win 10 32 bit???? if not then use the 64bit dp installer
