    Spider99 got a reaction from Christopher (Drashna) in [FR_1] - Better Volume Map   
    Chris
     
    To kick off - (not done a search to see if this has come up before)
     
    Initial idea (1)
     
    In scanner you have the volume map option which is OK but could be a whole lot more useful
     
    So what could be different - Have a look at http://www.uderzo.it/main_products/space_sniffer/index.html it looks very similar but is deceptively simple. Also it could be enhanced to add some missing features
     
    The major difference is the display is live and you can interact with it etc plus the filters are very useful and you can use colour coding (although this could be more useful with extra options) 
     
    Labels for file date etc are also very handy
     
    Its a live interface to in that it will update as you change the files/click through to lower directories/ separate windows .....
     
    If this or something similar could be added to Scanner/DP it would make a huge difference to whole experience as you would have the start of an analytical addon family.......

    yes a nice 5 year warranty if you can get it - means any problems you get a new (or refurb) drive noticed some of the newer Seagate are only coming with 3 yrs for enterprise drives - poor deal
     
    yes rule of thumb i use is - if they last 6 months they usually last a good long time but after 3-4 years - you have either run out of space or some humongous drive is now available for silly money before they all ware out
     
    i see a 60TB SSD for enterprise has appeared ($10k) - if they last you can say good by to mechanical drives in 3-5 years - so much easier to add another chip or two of memory than cram another platter into a 3.5 hdd case
     
    then we will be moaning about memory chip life

    Spider99 got a reaction from Christopher (Drashna) in Configuring DrivePool   
    the way i did it was 
     
    create the pool the same way you did (you dont have to even mount the drives if you dont want to or assign them a letter)
     
    once pool configured for size/dup etc
     
    create a share folder on the pool drive - i.e. treat the drivepool drive V: as if it were a real drive - to the system it is
     
    so v:\test this is then visible across your network - robocopy should be able to see the share and if you have your permissions correct - copy across some data to the test directory
     
    the data should appear in V:\test\HD..... in reality its in C:\DrivePoolArray\DRUX\poolpart\test\HD - hopefully being duplicated across your other drives
     
    the difference i think is you have bypassed the drivepool drive by pointing robocopy directly to the physical drive
     
    See how you go with that

    Ha yes well if others woke up and stopped moaning and provided there own data - with proper analysis that the average non stats geek can understand people might get a better understanding of
     
    a) data use - most peopl cant analyse data for toffee - although to here them talk - 
    choose the right HDD/SDD for your situation

    especially "you dont need nas/enterprise" drives for 24/7 usage - when most of their drives do very little everyday in comparison to a company files server etc

    Spider99 got a reaction from Christopher (Drashna) in Can I remove the drive letters from pooled member drives?   
    yep thats fine i have done it on mine
     
    you can mount them to a NTFS folder - so you can get at them separately
     
    or not mount them at all - although access to the disk directly does become more difficult if you do
     
    drive pool uses the unc path so does not care about how windows "names" them

    Spider99 got a reaction from Christopher (Drashna) in Best strategy to migrate 20TB to drivepool   
    Well i copied all the data to five disks via USB3 and have now just used the quick and dirty method to add the data to the pool - works a treat
     
    One thing though the i think http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q2299585Bneeds updating as i could not find any troubleshooting section to reset the options
     
    As it turned out setting the ssd cache kicked things into life
     
    Drivepool is digesting 18TB of data at the moment - not much happening but i have just given it the best part of 1M files to figure out - will leave it to get on with it and turn on duplication later

    Spider99 got a reaction from Parallax Abstraction in Macrium Reflect Reporting Out of Disk Space Mid-Way Through Backup   
    Hi i'm new to this as well - but the thought that comes to mind is that the backup is a single file and you dont have enough space on two drives to hold the single file. So i suspect the out of disk space warning is when one of the drives with very low space fills up as MR probably does not reserve the full file size initially on the system(if it did then the backup would probably fail almost immediately) because it does not know how big the backup is going to be and just incrementally expands the backup file as it goes later it will know when the process nears completion. DP therefore just decides to pick a disk and wait for the process to finish hence why you get variable completions of 20% and 40% as the "primary" or "secondary" DP disk fills up.
     
    Drive 6 looks like it has enough space but the others look to have a lot less space.
     
    If you can chop it up into more manageable pieces then I would expect it to work. Or just do an image of your system drive and do a file backup of the rest to keep the biggest file size down to something more manageable

    Spider99 reacted to Royce Daniel in Plex Cloud and Stablebit   
    I'm sure at some point there might be some kind of a "crack down" because there will be users who will abuse the service. Let's face it, if a would be Pirate wants to store and run copy protected material unencrypted... they are going to get caught. From what I've read Plex Cloud doesn't encrypt the content you upload via Plex to Amazon Cloud Drive which means Amazon has the ability to see what you have stored and examine it. If it contains embedded metadata suggesting that it was obtained illegally... your toast. If I were a rogue user I wouldn't use it.
     
     
    People talk about Amazon Cloud Drive / Plex Cloud as a private Netflix. I don't see it. Netflix has a shared video library where multiple users can view the same file. If every movie nut in the world has a private collection of 10TB or more... holy data Armageddon batman! Amazon has some amazing search algorithms they use to manage their data in various ways. With Amazon's TOS they have the ability to use those algorithms on your "private" movie libraries. Who's to say they aren't DE-duping to some extent and linking metadata among users accounts? It's a multi-tenant environment. Could easily be done. Plex's TOS allows for it too.
     
     
    I'm adding this topic to my daily news search because I think at some point there are going to be some really interesting stories that come out from this...

    i have a suspicion that this might get messy very quickly
     
    terms and conditions say don't "share with others" etc as if thats going to stop people doing exactly that - as thats part of the point of Plex and other media servers
     
    so Plex and Amazon have in effect made it easier/better to stream media to multiple users who might not - shock horror - own the copyrighted media
     
    I suspect a few copyright lawyers may have a problem or two with the concept even if Plex and Amazon have done their homework
     
    As for encryption of the data stored on Amazon - well plex needs to able to read it to stream/transcode/update metadata etc so at some point you are going to have to give it the key
     
    Might be fun to watch bit like Google/Oracle
