  1. Hi Christopher, is the above still true for the current DrivePool version etc? My situation is that I am running a Win10 install (installed on a seperate SSD) on a HP N54 microserver with 4 x additional HDD as the pooled drives. I need to consolidate a couple of other machines that run at home into a single physical machine to lower power usage, so I need to create a couple of virtual machines for that. If I simply move the SSD and the 4 x HDD to a new box with plenty of grunt, the transition of the Drive Pool is done as above? Thanks
  2. Good info Jaga, thanks. Do you mean UNC path for the backup? That's what I did...\\servername\backup folder Veeam are actually working on this anyway but so far the EASEUS software is doing a great job of backing up with minimum impact on the drive. Impressed so far.
  3. Hey all, I figure I would ask here because smart people use Drive Pool! I just got rid of WHS 2011 as my home server software due to unacceptable issues, unreliability and boot issues. Obviously it did have a great client PC backup system that worked fairly well where windows 10 does not. I am running a drive pool with first level folders that I map various users to on their PCs, so we are not talking high tech here! I gave VEEAM endpoint free a go, but it will not 'see' the network mapped drive I allocated for the backups. The permissions are all OK, just being a pain. I am now o
  4. Much sadness.....for some reason my OS SSD will not boot now. It is not even recognised as a boot drive. Stoopid HP ProLiant microserver perhaps, but either way I have some diagnostics to do. It boots to my test mechanic HDD just fine. Strange... On a positive note, my DP files on my data HDDs are just fine. All I need is a platform that will boot and I will be back in business. I tell you, it is awesome knowing that my data is safe and accessible. edit: Tried everything I could think of and got to the stage where a Windows 10 repair install was next. Plugged in the bootable U
  5. Now I have a couple of follow ups that I reckon someone will spot pretty fast! Coming from WHS2011, my server folder structure was looking like this below. The main folder in use was the ServerFolders on which had all of my seperate locations as well as the client backup files. My issue is, when I try to map the folders as separate locations with their own drive letter again, they are setup differently. It used to be just (\\MYSERVER\FOLDER1), but now when I map them they are (\\MYSERVER\ServerFolders\FOLDER1) Firstly, I now needed to go into each individual folder a
  6. You have done exceptionally well and I really appreciate it. The measure of an IT choice imo is how well your product is supported, and there are none better than you and the team Christopher. Thank you for making me feel valued!! Steve
  7. OK, SSD installed and OS load - Windows 10 Pro this time - and Windows update is running hard......I have put in my support request for deactivation so I should be good to go for a weekend of setups and fun!
  8. Thanks a lot guys. I think I made a great choice with this drive pool product in that case! i really appreciate the quick and positive replies. I think I just needed to see it con firmed so I didn’t have to worry about it all until I had time to arrange what I needed. The thought of losing my server data made me feel sick so your posts have lifted me for the day! i will report back my success when I am done and look forward to seeing my files again...
  9. Hi team, I have just had another let down with my WHS 2011 HP Proliant home server and am over it. I of course run DrivePool on the box but now that the OS SSD is failing to boot I want to know if I can install Windows 10 Pro as the OS and then recover all of my drive pool data? My plan would be to disconnect all of the data pool HDD (x 4), install Windows 10 Pro to the OS SSD and then install Drive Pool (assuming that the version for WHS that I purchased will also allow me to use it on Win 10) and then hopefully reconnect all of my data HDDs, reboot and watch the magic happen as DP
