  1. Is there a method for updating the firmware to a version that reports the data accurately?
  2. Yes, under the "Overview" section of Disk Details.
  3. I have a few WD20EARS drives that I was using (jumpered) in my old WHSv1 box. When I upgraded to WHS2011 I removed the jumpers since 4k formatted drives were now supported. I’ve initialized them GPT and make sure they are 4k formatted. They work fine and perform as expected, but StableBit Scanner does not report them as “advanced format” drives. Is this an error or are these drives not really 4k drives?
  4. Interesting, in my resent experience with DP 1.3.7563 on WHS2011 I had to initialize the drive (MBR or GPT) and format it NTFS before it would show up in the DP list of available drives. I’m not sure what I’ve been doing wrong. As for the mount path, I was just brainstorming. I’m thinking of converting my father-in-law’s WHSv1 install to 2011, but he is completely non-technical and would need “fool-proof” wizards to add new drives. Thanks for you help!
  5. From what I've read so far, DrivePool doesn't require the use of drive letters. I've recently added 2 drives to my pool, formatted GPT without drive letters, so I know it works (of course it does). My question is, can I remove the drive letters from 3 other drives I already had in my pool? There are no "shares" on these drives so it shouldn't impact the OS or the WHS software stack, but I'm uncertain about DP itself. Any help would be great! Secondly, it would be nice to be able to provision a new drive directly within the add drive wizard; initialize, format, and mount. The option to add a dedicated pool drive during setup would be nice. A dedicated pool drive would not have a drive letter, but rather mounted to a reparse point directory in a folder on C: (kind of like WHSv1). This would allow an interface free of multiple (useless) drive letters, but still allow access to the file system of each drive.
  6. +1 for dashboard support! I've just migrated from WHSv1 to WHS2011 and DrivePool+Scanner has been a life saver. Not only did DrivePool let me continue to use my storage as I see fit, but Scanner ID'd 3 near death HDDs (Darn WD Greens). I would love to see continued support for my "new" 3 year old OS choice.
