    Clouddrive ReFS support is bad, fifth lost ReFS drive this year

    Count me among the unfortunate souls who also lost a drive. I had a 90TB ReFS volume and a windows update killed it over two years ago, and I ditched it right then. My solution is to use 55TB NTFS volumes (so that they stay below the 60TB limit for chkdsk). I have one large CloudDrive divided up into 55TB partitions, and then I combine them with DrivePool into one unified storage pool. The end effect is identical to having one giant drive, but I can repair volumes individually. I've been using this setup for a few years now without issue. Never had any unresolvable file corruption at all. I just expand my CloudDrive and add another 55TB volume when and if I need more space.

    Clouddrive ReFS support is bad, fifth lost ReFS drive this year

    That's actually a problem with ReFS and not CloudDrive. See the many examples on google: https://www.google.com/search?q=windows+10+reFS+RAW&oq=windows+10+reFS+RAW&aqs=chrome..69i57.7817j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 The fall creators update even removed support for ReFS because of the stability issues, signalling that even MS doesn't necessarily see it as an NTFS successor any longer. At least not any time in the near future. Going with NTFS is advisable, for now.

    CloudDrive deleted file

    CloudDrive is not sync software like rClone. It is a virtual drive. Though they can be used to accomplish similar things, this is a very important distinction. You could use some sort of backup tool on top of CloudDrive to easily accomplish the same thing, but the concept of a "source" and a "destination" really has no relevance with CloudDrive. CloudDrive simply *is* the destination. There is no local copy of the data (outside of the cache) unless you want to set up some sort of cloning or sync software to provide one. Once the data is on your CloudDrive drive you can do anything with it that you could do if it was on a physical hard drive, so you could easily use a tool to copy data from a local directory to the server and leave it there even if you delete it locally--if that's what I'm understanding your desire is here. As Christopher mentioned above, you can even use data recovery on the drive just like a physical disk if you were to *accidently* delete something from the CloudDrive drive--which is something that *cannot* be done with a file-based solution like rClone. But as far as what happens to the data on the drive relative to some local copy, that's entirely up to you. CloudDrive doesn't operate based on interacting with actual copies of individual files stored on your cloud storage, so it doesn't really know or care what you do with those files. All it does is whatever you tell it to do, just like your hard drive. If you want redundancy or deletion protection, any tool that provides such features on a physical drive can easily be used to do the same for a CloudDrive drive.

    How to save full files

    CloudDrive is not the solution you're looking for, in that case. It fundamentally operates in a way incompatible with your goals. There are some other solutions that might meet your needs. See this post for some more information:

    CloudDrive and GSuite and some errors

    The file errors make me wonder if there is something wrong with the installation. Go ahead and run the troubleshooter (http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter) and include your ticket number. I think you'll have to wait for Christopher to handle this one. I'm not sure what's going on.

    CloudDrive and GSuite and some errors

    That makes me wonder if there is a corruption in the installation. Do a search and see if you can find the service folder. Search for a directory called "ChunkIds", which is where your DB is stored.

    CloudDrive and GSuite and some errors

    While your internet connection may be fine, that error signifies that the connection between you and google's servers is not. That is what that error means. CloudDrive is not able to contact Google's servers and upload and download your data. The causes of such a problem can vary, but the fact that you can connect to *other* sites reliably has no bearing on this problem. I'm sure Christopher can walk you through troubleshooting the connection in your ticket. Check for it at C:\ProgramData\StableBit CloudDrive\Service\Logs. The ProgramData directory will be hidden.

    CloudDrive and GSuite and some errors

    I don't speak German, so I'm not sure what the first error is telling you, but the second error is simply telling you that Google Drive was unreachable for a little while. If you're sure that everything is fine with your connection, it was probably just a temporary network hiccup. They happen. I get that error every once in awhile. Sometimes Google Drive itself even has network problems. You can check that status here: https://www.google.com/appsstatus#hl=en&v=status Completely unrelated to the issue discussed in that other thread you linked. Log files are located in %ProgramData%\StableBit CloudDrive\Service\Logs EDIT: Upon a second look, it appears that the first error is just the equivalent upload error to the second download error. Both simply indicate a network problem between you and Google. Neither are long-term concerns as long as they are temporary.

    UI on headless workstation

    I use mine on a headless OVH server. I don't have this issue. Might it be a video driver problem? Have you tried a 3rd party RDP client? You can also just skip that process entirely and open the ports required for remote access within CloudDrive and run the UI locally. That might be an option for you. See :https://stablebit.com/Support/CloudDrive/Manual?Section=Remote Control

    CloudDrive drops my Internet connection

    Again, I'm simply not even sure how that would be possible from a technical perspective. I suspect that any high-traffic application might cause the same problem for you. CloudDrive doesn't do anything to modify the WAN settings on your router--nor could it. If your router is dropping the connection to your modem, that's almost certainly your router, your modem, or your ISP. Stranger things have happened, I suppose, but I have no idea what could cause that problem. No application on your PC should ever be able to cause that problem. I know this probably isn't what you want to hear, but it's almost *certainly* not CloudDrive. CloudDrive is just demanding the data required to trigger the problem.

    CloudDrive drops my Internet connection

    Does the router still have a WAN IP when this happens? You'll have to look at the router's config page when it drops out to see. It sounds to me like the router is losing its connection to the modem when this happens, and I have no idea how any application could possibly cause that unless there is a problem with the router, the modem, or your ISP. That setup works fine for both. I don't use torrents very much, but that setup works fine when I do. If you're hosting a drive specifically for torrents, you can probably adjust the prefetcher down somewhat. Torrent pieces are only around 4-8MB apiece even for a very large torrent. So caching 500MB at a time is unnecessary. Honestly, with a minimum download size of 10MB, I'd probably just disable the prefetcher altogether for torrents. Torrents grab pieces in a somewhat arbitrary order, based on the availability of pieces being seeded. So there isn't a real advantage to caching a lot of contiguous data. It won't likely need the data contiguously. If you're seeding, torrents are also comparatively slow. You'll rarely need more than 1MB/sec or so, and your connection is fast enough to handle that on the fly--as is mine.

    CloudDrive drops my Internet connection

    OK. In that case, I think my follow up question is for some more detail about what you mean when you say that the router is "dropping" your internet connection. Is it simply not responding? Are you losing your DHCP to your modem? What specifically is it doing when it drops? I'm trying to think of things that *any* application on your PC could be doing that would cause a problem with the connection between your router and your WAN without there being an underlying router issue, but I'm having trouble thinking of anything. Some more detail might help. You're welcome. Some of them are probably out of date compared to what I'm using today. I had written up a little tutorial on reddit to help people, but I ended up deleting that account and wiping all of the posts. Nothing will influence your upload more than the number of upload threads. Personally, I throttle my upload to 70 mbps so that I never exceed Google's 750GB/day limit, but my current settings easily saturate that. My settings are as follows, and I highly recommend them: 10 Download Threads 5 Upload Threads No background I/O (I disable this because I want to actually prioritize the reads over the writes for the Plex server) Uploads throttled to 70mbps Upload Threshold set to 1MB or 5mins 10MB minimum download size (seems to provide a relatively responsive drive while fetching more than enough data for the server in most cases) 20MB Prefetch Trigger 500MB Prefetch forward 10 second prefetch window I actually calculated the prefetch settings based on the typical remux quality video file on my server. 20MB in 10 seconds is roughly equivalent to a 16mbps video file, if I remember the standard that I used correctly. That's actually a very low bitrate for a remuxed bluray, which is typically closer to 35mbps. The 10MB minimum download seems to handle any lower quality files just fine. I still play with the settings once in awhile, but this setup successfully serves up to 6 or 7 very high quality video streams at a time. I've been extremely happy with it. I'm using one large drive (275TB) divided up into 5 55TB volumes (so I can use chkdsk), and it has about 195TB of content on it. I combine all of the volumes using DrivePool and point Plex at the DrivePool drive. Works wonderfully. The drive structure is 20MB chunks with a 100MB chunk cache, running with 50GB expandable cache on an SSD.

    CloudDrive drops my Internet connection

    It's almost certainly a router problem. There isn't really anything that CloudDrive does that is abnormal as far as network traffic goes, other than being somewhat taxing on your network infrastructure. So the first thing that I would test is another high-traffic application to see if it causes the same problem. Smallnetbuilder has a good article on router testing here: https://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless/wireless-howto/31679-how-to-test-a-wireless-router Try that first, and then we can go from there.

    Drive keeps unmounting, gives chunk errors

    When there is a drive issue, once you reconnect it will upload your cache to make sure that the content on the cloud is synced. Is that what you're seeing it upload? Does the size match your cache size?

    Cannot reattach drive

    When it's attached via USB, it would use the local disk provider--which I believe is a separate format from the FTP provider. I'm not sure if there is a way to do a quick conversion between the two. If you can share your drive from the router as a network drive instead of an FTP, both of those could use the local disk provider. I haven't seen Christopher on the forums lately, but if you submit a ticket he can let you know if there is an easier way to convert the data without just creating a new local disk drive and copying it over.
