  1. Made the recommended changes. Now the waiting game begins. Thanks again.
  2. Hello again srcrist, Thanks again for all the assistance that you have provided thus far. This community alone is one of the biggest reasons I keep referring Stablebit to friends and Colleges. My performance settings are as follows.
  3. OK, moved all of the data over to the new pool, changed the drive letter back to Z:/. Changed the option on the pool to allow duplication on both new drives. This seemed to work well, data was uploading fine, until it gave me an error. It told me that I was being throttled because my C:\ was full. Sure enough, it created a hidden folder called CloudPart.XYXYX that was consuming 50GB of space maxing out the drive. I checked the "Cache"Settings and it was set to 5GB expandable. I have since changed it to Fixed and space appears to be coming back very slowly. What is the appropriate setting for this to not consume my entire C: drive?
  4. Perfect! When I get home tonight I will implement the change and report back. Thanks again.
  5. Ok Friends, The work on the hard drives is complete and data is back as it should be. The drivepool now identifies as NTFS. I have created a second pool adding both the original pool as well as the google drive. I just cant figure out how to set the correct settings to allow the pool to duplicate to the Google Drive.
  6. Hey Srcrist, after several more reboots of the system and a little time, the Cloud Drive ended up showing as an available add after all. I have since decided to hold off on adding the Cloud drive until I complete the section below. On to my next issue. I disabled duplication and manually backups up my important files in-case of a mistake. I removed a single drive from the pool and reformatted it from ReFs to NTFS for compatibility and other personal reasons. When I add it back to the original pool, the stats on the left hand side still say ReFs but if I create a new pool with this drive, it shows as NTFS. I have since replicated this across 6 of my 14 drives so far and counting to get them all over to NTFS. My question is this, If all of the drives are formatted and added back to the original pool, will the status update to NTFS if there are no ReFs drives left? I would rather not have to create a new pool and then move the data over and then have to link everything back to Z:\ manually. If it stays in the same pool, I will not have to do any extra work minus the drive removal, format and then re-add. Thanks
  7. Ok, will do. Thanks for your help thus far.
  8. Followed the directions you provided in the previous post for enabling multi-format drives, rebooted and still can not see both the Gdrive and the Pool together. Here is the changes that I have made to the Settings.json file: "CoveFs_AllowMixedFilesystems": { "Default": false, "Override": true }, Without this option working, I am unable to move to the next step. Any other options?
  9. I think I understand. Let me give it a go and I will report back the results.
  10. OK. Just so I understand this correctly. I will end up with 3 pools? 1) Z:\DrivePool (Current - All local disks) 2) D:\Google Drive (New - Cloud Drive) 3) E:\Combined (Newer - Includes DrivePool and Google Drive)
  11. Ok, when I click create pool, this is what I see. How do i remove the drives from my current pool without losing data?
  12. Yes, that is correct. I have already created the Cloud Drive as shown in the screenshot above. It doesnt show as an option to be added to the current pool.
  13. Thanks for the reply. I found the location of the Drive usage limiter but how do I select the Cloud Drive as an option? It is not listed in the list of drives (see new screenshot). Under my drivepool, (see photo above) it doesn't list it to be able to be added to the original pool either.
  14. Hello All, I have been using Drivepool for a long time now and love it. I am now looking to further protect my files so I purchased Cloud drive and G Suite Business today. I currently have 34.6TB of total space on my server with 8.71TB free. Duplication is currently turned on using (2X). I have connected my Google Drive to the cloud drive and created a 50TB drive. Assuming that this maybe to much now after figuring out that I am only actually using 13TB of space if I were to remove duplication from my current setup. I configured the download to use 10 threads and the upload to use 5 with an upload limit of 70mbps to avoid being banned. To further add fuel to the fire, most of my data is movies and TV shows that currently are being utilized from Plex media player. What I would like to achieve is to have a local copy of my files and have them dupe to my cloud drive. I would like for Plex to only use the local files and not attempt to re-download any files. Doing this would allow me to reclaim my duplicated space on my local server. I have tried to figure it out myself but have been struggling the last few hours. I don't want to accidentally delete my pool and lose everything. Any help would be appreciated. I have included screen shots of my drive pool and Cloud Drive. Please let me know if you need additional information to assist me. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hello srcist, I am in a similar boat as the OP, 24TB of location data stored in one pool using 13 spindle disks. Could you be slightly more detailed in your recent response of setup? I am curious to know if we are to add the cloud drive to the current data pool or make a new pool for it. If we have duplication already turned on for the local data pool, do we need to turn that off or is the program smart enough to re-dupe the data to the cloud drive automatically or will it copy both the original and duplicated files over?
