  1. The bottom third or so of your screenshot contains all of the ordered placement settings under the SSD optimizer.
  2. You'll have to submit a ticket and attach the troubleshooter. I really can't help you further other than to say that your problems are not widely experienced, and the behavior you're experiencing should not be expected. Beyond that, support will have to help you. I've never seen any sort of crashing or "not found element" errors, so I don't know what might be responsible.
  3. Submit an official support ticket here: https://stablebit.com/Contact Then download and run the troubleshooter and attach the support ticket number. The troubleshooter is located here: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter I also wouldn't say that your reasoning in the last sentence is sound. rClone and CloudDrive interact with Google's APIs in very different ways and with very different frequencies. The performance or reliability of one does not suggest much about the expected performance or reliability of the other. In any case, read errors generally indicate a connection issue and crashes are not normal at all. CloudDrive is generally very stable software. So submit a ticket and let them look at it and go from there.
  4. The SSD balancer plugin can effectively accomplish some of that. You can find it here: https://stablebit.com/DrivePool/Plugins But because DrivePool is a filesystem based solution, as opposed to a block-based solution like CloudDrive, it can't dynamically cache exactly like CloudDrive can.
  5. I'm just not sure that you're asking a question with an answer. That's probably why people are slow to respond. What you're asking here is sort of subjective by nature, and there isn't a "correct" answer to give you. It's your call how you want to structure your pool, and there aren't any notable performance difference to any particular option, as far as I can think of. My first thought is that it honestly seems like overkill and an inefficient use of your time as it stands already, and that I certainly wouldn't put any more time into even *more* pools with *additional* duplication. If I'm reading you correctly, all of the data is backed up up to your unraid server as it is. I'd probably just use a single cloud drive to provide 1x redundancy to the unraid and call it a day. Nothing that you truly cannot afford to lose should ever be trusted to consumer grade cloud storage in the first place, and I don't think any number of accounts or any pool structure is really going to improve that--at least not with the same provider and same service. If anything, it's probably just making it more likely that Google will shut down your (or everyone's) accounts for abuse. But, again, that isn't a "correct" answer, it's just a personal opinion. The six separate Google accounts and the concern about getting them shut down suggests to me that they are not all legitimate, paid, accounts for which the terms of service are being abided. And that, honestly, is a far bigger risk to your data than any advice anyone can give you here can mitigate. Google nukes resold accounts and illegitimate .edu accounts fairly regularly, and nothing we can say here will save your data from that. My advice would be to get one, legitimate, paid Google account and use it to backup your unraid 1x.
  6. Before checking anything else, 1165 had known bugs. Try the current release candidate (1178): https://stablebit.com/CloudDrive/Download If the problem persists after upgrading, submit a ticket: https://stablebit.com/Contact
  7. That depends entirely on your DrivePool configuration settings. DrivePool will try to fill all drives in the pool equally by default. So you'd have files evenly distributed between all drives.
  8. That can be caused by issues with any file system filter, and even explorer shell extensions. You'll need to troubleshoot the exact cause. One example: if you open a directory of media files, Windows, by default, wants to read certain information from those files for the file properties in explorer. That data is not pinned; it actually has to read some of the file. I believe that functionality can be disabled if it's a problem. Also, pinned data will prevent the file system data from having to be retrieved from your cloud provider, yes. But pinned data can also be discarded if your cache is too full as well, so keep an eye on that. You can test the actual responsiveness of the file system by using a command prompt, which will not try to load any extension or filter data when browsing the file system.
  9. To be clear: These are physical hard drives? Was there a CloudDrive drive in the pool? This is the CloudDrive forum. RAW indicates, in any case, that your filesystem has been corrupted. You'll likely want to vacate the data from the drive asap with a recovery tool, format it, and copy the data back, if you can. DrivePool will recognize the data as long as the directory structure remains intact.

    How to unmount Pool

    Yeah, in that case, you'd probably have to uninstall DrivePool, reboot, and then the drive should mount immediately after reinstalling. I'm not sure if there is any other way to accomplish it. You might be able to take the pool offline using Disk Management to get the same effect, though. You can, in any case, submit a feature request, though.

    How to unmount Pool

    I'm not sure what, exactly, you're trying to do. What sort of tests require the entire pool to be removed? Depending on what you need, you could remove the mount point using Windows Disk Management, uninstall DrivePool temporarily, or simply target the underlying drives in the pool by providing them a mount point.
  12. I haven't seen the issue since 1165. When it's happening, run the troubleshooter and submit a ticket so they can look at it.
  13. You cannot, unfortunately. You will have to recreate the drive. Encryption has to be enabled when the drive is created.
