  1. I thought it was relatively clear that this point had already been reached, frankly.
  2. I am not going to sit here and have some argument with you about this. If you think your data is made safer by rclone, use rclone and let the issue be. I really don't care about your data, and this matters vastly more to you than it does to me. I'm sorry that you don't understand the actual point. Nobody is forcing you to either use CloudDrive or come here and ask for explanations that you don't actually want. You have a good day.
  3. A lot of that is simply repeating what I wrote. But nothing that I wrote is nonsense, and you ignore the inherent volatility issues of cloud storage at your peril. It is obviously true that in this one particular case and for a specific use case rclone did not have the same issues. But hand-waving away data loss simply because it's in the form of stale but complete files reveals that you are a bit myopic about different use scenarios--which is weird, because it's something that you are also acknowledging when you say "Saying Rclone data is stagnant is nonsense too, it entirely depends on
  4. Upload verification will not prevent provider-side data corruption of any form (absolutely nothing will), but that wasn't the concern you mentioned. It WILL prevent the write hole issue that you described, as CloudDrive will not regard the data as "written" until it can verify the integrity of the data on the provider by retrieving it. Either way, though, I would discourage you from looking at rClone as "safer" in any way. It is not. Any cloud storage is not a safe backup mechanism for data in general, and all cloud storage should be treated as inherently and equally volatile and only use
  5. Nobody can really tell you what happened to prompt that cautionary warning about Google Drive other than Google themselves. What we know is that in March of 2019 Google had a major outage that affected multiple services including Drive and Gmail. After the service disruption was resolved, Drive started returning what appeared to be stale, outdated chunks rather than up-to-date data, and that corrupted CloudDrive volumes. I think the widest held presumption is that Google had to do a rollback to a previous backup of some form, and thus replaced some chunks with older versions of themselves--but
  6. On your H: and your V: you will have a poolpart folder, if they have been added to the pool. Put everything ELSE on those drives, like the CloudDrive folder, if that's where your content is, into the poolpart folder. Then remeasure and it will be accessible from your G:.
  7. All of the content, on each drive, that you want to access from the pool, should be moved to the hidden pool folder on that respective drive.
  8. This is backwards. You don't want to move the hidden directory, you want to move everything else TO the hidden directory. The contents of the hidden directory is what is in your pool.
  9. Make sure that you both submit tickets to support here: https://stablebit.com/Contact
  10. Just including a quote in case you have email notification set up. Forgot to quote you in the previous post.
  11. Hmm...not sure. The good news is that if drive corruption were the issue, you should see the chksum errors in the log and the notification drop-down. I don't see any pending notifications in your UI, unless you cleared them. So it's probably not corruption. What does the cache look like for this drive? What sort of drive is it on, how large, and what type of cache? And, to be clear: You are showing the "default i/o settings" in your screenshot. Those apply when you create a new drive. Is your existing, mounted drive actually using those settings as well? Verify within the "Manage Drive" m
  12. Not to my knowledge, no. CloudDrive is just a tool to store a psuedo-native file system on another sort of storage protocol. CloudDrive takes non-native file storage like FTP, SMB, or a cloud storage host, and provides a native (NTFS or ReFS) file system for Windows. It's a middle man for the a storage API/protocol so that windows can access that storage as if it were a local drive. But the side effect is that the data must be accessed via the CloudDrive application. It is not intended to be a front-end for the non-native API. Tools like rClone or Netdrive are. Unless some future version of th
  13. To be clear: encryption is (and has always been) optional even on CloudDrive volumes hosted on cloud providers. You do not have to enable encryption for volumes stored on cloud storage or local storage. But what I suspect that you are actually talking about is that you want the data to be accessible in whatever native, unobfuscated file format your applications are accessing when encryption is disabled, but that simply isn't possible with CloudDrive. It just isn't how this particular software works. As mentioned in the above post from June, there ARE tools you can use to basically access
  14. If you have the thread organized by votes, that post from Christopher is actually from Oct 12th. It's not the first post from the thread chronologically, which was made back in June. You just have your thread sorted by votes. This is correct though, and something I had not noticed before. Also the ReFS fix from beta .1373 and the ReFS fix listed in the stable changelog for stable .1318 are for different issues (28436 vs 28469). No versions between 1.1.2.X and 1.2.0.X are represented in the betas at all, but, for example, the Google Drive API keys which were added in BETA .1248 are repr
