  1. One of my drives is showing smart warning, and i'm gonna RMA it and now i'm buying a new drive, just wanna make sure this is correct procedure, 1. Insert new drive to rack 2. Add new drive to pool 3. Remove bad drive pool from DP 4. Remove bad drive from rack Is that it? did i miss anything?
  2. So you're saying you use S for drivepool then your drives are in NTFS folders? This is what i meant, then i guess the best way to do this is to have drivepool mapped to Z drive, then the rest of the drives mounted in NTFS folders inside C:\DrivePool\?
  3. Hmm something strange just happened, my server reboots (not sure why i think Teamviewer crashed it), before reboot Drivepool was using N letter after reboot Drivepool changes it drive letter to O, and the new drive is suddenly mounted to N. My shares were gone, so i had to reorder the drive letters Kinda makes me wonder whats the best way to use NTFS mount points + drivepool and prevent something like this? Or maybe at least can i lock drivepool's drive letter somehow?
  4. Sorry i meant this just wondering if its safe to move it to drivepool or back it up in case my C is screwed
  5. So i mount my new hdd with mount points, and i put it on C which is reserved for OS.. few questions.. 1. Can i move the mount point file to drivepool partition? 2. what if my C got corrupted? can i restore the mount point somehow?
  6. desktop.ini is indeed a virus, other AV is reporting the same.. Earlier this morning some of the folders changed its permission again.. and the shortcut virus is back.. e.g : correct permission should be : Everyone, admin and client the infected folders have extra permission from system, authenticated users , and users not sure if its cause i forgot to fix the permssion on those folders, or something else chenged them, but i'm pretty sure i made the parent folder inherited the correct permissions It's not as much folders as the last time though.. hopefully it's just m
  7. Now i know whats probably causing it. See like i said I'm sharing it with local diskless clients, and some of those clients have personal data that is saved even after reboot. Now this personal data is probably infected with virus. So i test one of the infected folders from client side. And surprisingly, the client can create a text document inside that folder! But deleting the text file requires admin account and was halted immediately, and strangely after a while text file is gone.. I double check the security and it's definitely shared with a standard acc
  8. Ok i just scanned my drives with nod32 and found 300 viruses. But the next day it found them again, through the poolpart instead the normal path to the drives.. So i was wondering, could one of drivepool features actually bring back the viruses? i'm using balancing feature btw
  9. Asking this cause i was hit by a 2010 shortcut virus... My server is shared for public usage to a number of clients so the source might be from infected thumbdrives.. but i cant understand how can it affects read-only smb shares.. does drivepool alter smb share security or is this a known win server 2012 r2 security hole? Hopefully its the later, I have followed a guude to clean it. But its still kinda worries me if it happens again.. anyone know a fix or patch?
  10. Yeah can confirm it's safe. And i Finally figured out the cause... my new drive has shorter length than the older ones.. no wonder it didn't detect it cause it's not even plugged in! never new they had different size though.. i moved the caddy screw higher and now it's working
  11. "You shouldn't" meaning it's not safe? yeah tried almost everything, tested yesterday without drives plugged in, turns out there's no zoning Card is made in chinese so i'm refunding it and getting the US one (albeit twice more expensive) Wanted to debug it further but im held back by windows' tool limitation..
  12. Hi, i need to access my jbod under linux to check zoning possibility.. cause strangely my hgst 4u60 is limiting the drives to 11. Ive tried lsi 9300 8e and dell sc8000 and both cant detect 12th drive, a 8tb red wd. But i can move around drives in my jbod as long as its under 11. Unfortunately i cant find any equivalent alternative for smp_utils under windows. So im gonna have to boot up ubuntu and access the jbod rack.. question is, is this safe for drivepool once i get back to windows? Cause if i recall i had permission issues when going back and forth with ubuntu and windows
  13. Ok I've used it, but i'm not sure it does its job correctly though.. This is using "Equalize by free space remaining"
  14. Hi, one of my drives is almost full, but there's almost 1TB left in my pool How exactly do i make the balancing file work? I tried volume equalization but it doesn't seem to balance the drives.. this is after vol equalization : I'm still getting full disk warning and failed torrent download
  15. Sorry for bumping an old thread, but i think i'm experiencing this as well chris. Was looking for a movie earlier this morning. But I couldn't find it despite kodi listing the movie, and the utorrent has the file downloaded So i redownloaded it again in utorrent Strangely when i try to move the file to the exact same path, the movie reappears! .. and prompt me if i want to replace the same file or not... Drivepool is the latest version 2.20 742 beta
  16. I'm accessing the library from another machine using Kodi, I'd thought Kodi can only see driveletters, i read in their forum it could also read UNC paths, guess gotta give it a try first
  17. I was looking for a solution to get past windows' 26 letter limitation for shortcut then i read about dfs. Any known problem using both dfs and drivepool? I read this and was wondered about the bug status now http://forum.covecube.com/discussion/comment/888/ Also..anyone know if dfs the best way if we want to work with kodi and more than 26 drive letters?
  18. Could you point me to which part it stucks like you did last time? it's almost finished measuring, like 98-99% as of removing hdd, last time i did that the data was scattered or something, is there a removal hdd wiki somewhere? And i can't have it removed for too long thats why i prefer "juggling" the data like this
  19. Already uploaded the logs chris, please check where it's stuck. thanks
  20. I kinda figure out how to remove the duplicates.. 1. Look for which folde Drivepool Error is pointing to 2. Delete the content of that folder to recycle Bin 3. Ctrl + Z but choose to skip the same file/folder, drivepool can resume measuring that part But now there's one folder i cant figure out, Have deleted the files inside it, and ctrl + z but there was no duplicates, delete the troubled folder but drivepool is still detecting it Any idea how to solve this one?
  21. Could you tell me what is supposed to be the name of "removed" in \ANIMASI\Animasi_F-J\{removed}\poster.jpg? There's only 91 folders in ANIMASI\Animasi_F-J\, i search through all of them and only found 1 poster.jpg in each folders (required for Kodi) tried using grepwin which supports case sensitive searching but found nothing. Or could you advice what tools should i use to track down these duplicates? Maybe it has something to do with my migration from ubuntu? The error in my prev post was suddenly gone after i reboot it, i suspected it was because debugging mode. Also
  22. Well explorer is practically not working now, there's only a spinning search button on my PC i must wait for early morning before i can reboot the server Please advice, is it safe to rollback to prev stable version chris? and which one is the latest stable? Got this when i tried to dopwngrade to the latest stable from download page. should i disable drivepool service first?
  23. Hmm also chris, i think this version is unstable and often lock files randomly, which is the latest stable version before this? I'm not sure what that is but there's a spinning search icon on some of my drives Tried restarting explorer but i can't expand or access the drives now.. only a spinning search icon on "This PC" Maybe there's a delayed process or something..
  24. Still got same error, right after reboot, Already uploaded the logs through here http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_2.x_Log_Collection
  25. Just re-measured it again, and yes still same error Paged pool and nonpaged pool didnt increase much during re-measuring process..
