  1. Hello, After replacing a faulty disk I had to re-balance my pool. But it seems to be stuck at 99.9% Should I worry? Can I fix it? Thanks in advance Per
  2. Hello, one of my 8 TB disk got unreadable sectors so I had it removed after DP evacuated data to other disks. So the other disks got rather full and I get warnings. Now I have added a new 8 TB disk to the pool. Will DP automatically even out my data to the new disk? So I don't get warnings of full disks? Thanks in advance Per
  3. Ok thanks Christopher, I will try a newer version then. regards Per
  4. Hello, it seems I can not manage my folder shares anymore. I think I have been. Whwn clicking the "Manage folders..." link I get a popup saying "Error switching to folders page", see attached screen shot. This is version on WHS 2011. Any help would be appreciated. Per
  5. Thanks for your thorough explanation. I'll see what I will do. Per
  6. Thank you, I found the balancing options with your help. In order to minimize disk writing when adding a new (empty) disk, should I disable the Volume Equalization balancer? Will the effect be that the drives are filled in order, one by one? Per EDIT: I'm asking because I think I remember last time I added disks, data was moved from old disks to the new one(s), in order to have them all filled equally, (but I am not sure).
  7. Hello, I just wonder what are the default balancing policies for version Are the balancing polices configurable? If so, how? Thanks in advance Per
  8. Thanks Christopher for your suggestions. I will look into them. Per
  9. Dear all, my chassi is full, no more drive bays nor SATA ports, so I have to expand my storage. I wonder if someone could advice me how to expand my storage. What technology should I use? (eSATA) What controller card? It's a requirement to obtain SMART data to StableBit Scanner. External closure? (4 - 8 bays) My motherboard has 2 free PCI Express x16 and 1 PCI Express x4. Thanks in advance, Per
  10. Hi all, does anyone know if StableBit Scanner can get S.M.A.R.T data through the eSATA interface of the RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-3664SU3 external enclosure? I haven't find out which controller card this unit has. Thanks in advance Per
  11. I just tried the tree command, and it seems that it doesn't lists hidden directories, so you have to specify the full PoolPart directory name. I have a small batch file that lists my mounted drives with the DIR /S /B command each day. It works with hidden directories. Per
  12. That fixed it. Thanks Christopher. Per
  13. OK, I'll try to re-index. Per
  14. Hello, suddenly the overview tab is measuring my pool incorrect: I have tried remeasured and restarted the DrivePool service, still wrong. In the pool tab it is correct. How can I correct this? Thanks in advance Per
  15. Thanks for your advice, I think I understand. I will go for the 64k allocation unit size per your recommendations. regards Per
  16. Hello, just bought myself a Seagate 8 TB Archive disk. Just wondering about changing the default allocation unit size to 64k. Would a single small file use one allocation unit? Or could several small files share an allocation unit? I am asking since (my) video library consist of large (video) files together with small meta data files (.nfo, .jpg ..) Would you still recommend an allocation unit size of 64k? Thanks in advance Per
  17. Me too. Rebuilt my server using Fractal Design Node 804 as chassi. Per
  18. Ah, I didn't know that, then I'll try to use \\SERVER\D$\ instead. Per
  19. Thanks for your offer to help me Christopher, but since all shares seemed to work but still an annoying warning was left, I rebooted the server, and voila, the warning is gone. regards Per
  20. Thanks for looking into this. Yes in fact it was just showing "missing" in the Dashboard but all clients could access the shares. But as I said suddenly the showed up in the Dashboard and all pointing to my Drivepool, so it "fixed" itself. . But... I still have a Dashboard warning "One or more pre-defined server folders are missing" but it doesn't says which one. I email you the logs when I get back from work. Thanks in advance. Per
  21. Hello again, somehow mysteriously it fix itself, the shares show up in Dashboard and are accessible from clients. I cannot say I did anything obvious to fix it. Strange, consider it case closed. Thanks anyway. Per
  22. I found a forum thread about my problem: http://forum.covecube.com/discussion/349/m4-lossing-shares-on-whs-2011-restart/p1 Is my version of DrivePool, version, older than build 5536 mentioned to fix this problem? Per
  23. I could try the new versions, but I'd like to troubleshoot my current system first a bit. I think I have removed ServerFolders directory on D: and thus no "original" empty shares (Music, Videos....). Perhaps that is fooling WSS troubleshooter? Per
