  1. I had a file dump off the entire pool into a text file prior to all of this happening. After getting mysql loaded up and cleaning off the pool parts with sed I was able to compare what was on the pool prior and find what I need to restore from the drive. Additionally for some reason I have a bunch of Other and Unduplicated data, so I loaded every single file into a new table and had it do a count to find files that are not duplicated even though everything should be. Nothing I do seems to be able to make Drivepool truly duplicate everything. The list of not duplicated files isn't all that large thankfully but Drivepool seems to think it is optimal which it obviously is not. I've tried doing a remeasuring, rebooting the PC, deleting the Stablebit Drivepool folder in ProgramData. The software just does not appear to work properly. If I were to lose a drive that contains the only copy of some of these files i'd be pretty SOL. After I get all of the missing files restored I am going to make a second pool and just have 2 separate pools with 1x each and then sync them with Syncback or something, at least this way it makes sure to have 2 copies of everything. It isn't ideal but still better than managing 40ish drives manually. If I lose a drive in a pool i'll just replace it and reverse the sync to get everything back.
  2. Version Beta. I didn't do a force removal. When I removed the disk it was over half full the pool parts that remain are only 250GB. The log also had this in it. DrivePool.Service.exe Warning 0 [RemoveDriveFromPool] Error on final delete after drive removal for \\?\Volume{9e4a230a-213d-4625-a7a7-ccaff4cef6c6}\PoolPart.80315d55-1ce0-4461-850a-cf06b18fe324\. Unable to delete all files after removing pool part I started recovering the files off of the disk with the structure onto a new disk, drivepool picked it up as a new pool. So I stopped after about 500GB of data was recovered, so far not everything could be recovered unfortunately. Most likely going to try to recover on another computer. The pool has been duplicating since this all happened, i finally found a post about hitting the >> about an hour ago and it seems to be doing something again. So far I have just been recovering files I can't find in the Drivepool.
  3. While I am not sure why, I got hit with duplication inconsistent. It showed a unduplicated (dark blue) over all of the drives, small amounts on each. I had a 4 TB drive and I removed it and told it to duplicate later due to not wanting to wait and I needed the drive. This may have been a bad idea, either way I would have thought it would at least move/duplicate the unduplicated items. It appears it just removed the disk, didn't move off anything and then in the logs it looks like it just deleted everything off the disk. It left about 200 GB of stuff behind on the disk, in the logs it says it was unable to delete everything. Before removing the disk I had about 6TB of free space on the pool after removing the disk I had 4.9 free. (math doesn't work). I do not know everything that was deleted as of yet, just that it does appear to be quite a lot. I tried to do a "recheck duplication" but it would never actually do anything. I restarted the service but it is going on half an hour now and it is not back up. I appreciate people have used the software with success but so far i've had nothing but problems between this, unduplicated other, drives being evac'ed for no reason and the list goes on. While I agree it could be the hardware this box has never had any problems prior to using Drivepool. So I think, unfortunately as much as I wanted to love it, it is my time to part. But that being said I need to try to get my stuff back, start the long process of moving everything and then abandon ship. I downloaded Recuva and it found all of the stuff that is no long in the pool, would it be possible to recover the disk assuming it will and then add it back to the pool? Any better way of getting the stuff back on the disk that anyone knows?

    Stablebit Scanner Issues

    It is a core I-5, 16 GB of ram, 25+ drives or so between internal and enclosures connected via e-sata. Nothing else on the computer is slow, not Drivepool. Simply just the Scanner. If i go into the scanner and click on the scroll bar to go down to another set of drives, that click alone takes 5 or 6 seconds. I know at some point it showed a map of all of the blocks on each drive if you tried to expand but right now it isn't even showing that. I have tried using the current main release as well as the beta but the beta is the one that kicked all of the drives out of the pool. So I removed that one and went back to the currently main release. I am sure if I close the scanner and reopen it the mappings will show up again. But like I said before that takes forever. Also all of the drives that the beta showed as damaged are not showing as damaged in the regular scanner. So far 1 is showing damaged, 16 blocks but nothing else will show it as damaged and the scan files in the scanner doesn't even work.
  5. 1) Product loses the display if connecting from RDP and it was already open. Takes 5-10 minutes to reopen 2) Product is extremely slow, can't really use it. Doing any clicking around takes forever or scrolling. I am not sure what makes it so slow but even just trying to expand a drive is hard. 3) Product reported drives as damaged but they do not appear to be, caused 9tb to evac out of drive pool. I had to turn off the balancer and then tell drive pool to rebalance which took quite a long time. a) Drivepool, it also seems to have quite a few issues. after multiple rebalances to fix the problem caused by Scanner, it still reported a bunch of space that can't be used and some drives still appeared full. Trying to get it to rebalance again did nothing and I ended up having to just stop the service and restarting it, which seemed to fix the problem. 4) Another hard drive that it said was damaged (16 sectors) told me to do a file scan, hitting the button causes the product to freeze for 30 seconds and then it doesn't seem to ever do anything. All in all I bought the products because I figured it'd be worth it in the end but between scanner not really working and Drivepool who knows what it is doing. ( I mean unduplicated files, other files? but you can't actually see what any of it is)... I just bought them yesterday but I find myself today trying to find another solution as I am not really sure I can trust either product they do not appear to work correctly. Anyone has any suggestions i'd appreciate it. Thanks
  6. I had a few questions about the Stablebit Cloud Drive. 1) Which cloud options are stable and usable at this time? I have seen a few suggestions for Google but then quite a few threads making it seem unstable. 2) I saw some people mention you can get the Google Drive unlimited for 10 dollars a month. Does anyone know if this is actually true even though the site states otherwise? 3) Any plans to possible to allow point to point via cloud drive? Possibly handling the replication between 2 sites. 4) If number 3 is no, what about support on Own Cloud? This would be pretty nice because you could seed locally and then take the copy to another location while maintaining the encryption. I do like the concept of the product but assuming I tried to upload 20-30TB of data it'd take a long time (which I don't mind that much assuming Google Drive was unlimited and stable). My current thought process is to use Crashplan to do a local seed with a few 10TB drives to keep it in a single case and then move the computer to a remote location to continue backups. I'd rather use the cloud drive so it can be read on different computers as Crashplan is simply a backup only solution. If support for Own Cloud existed it could be mounted on multiple computers and then i would just use Crashplan to backup non media type things which would be much smaller and allow the remaining stuff to stay in Own Cloud or Google Drive depending. Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated.
