  1. Thanks. I did see that KB, but I'm not sure I follow. Where will the Poolpart folders be for the new top level drive? Hopefully this makes sense: D: - Top level drive pool |___ E: Magnetic drive pool |____ C:\mount\1\PoolPart |____ C:\mount\2\PoolPart |___ F: Sold state drive pool |___ R:\ edit: Just created the above DrivePool hierarchy. The top level drive was empty and I only saw one PoolPart folder in C:\mount\1. I'm clearly missing something.
  2. Am I asking really dumb questions? (Other than this one?)
  3. And to follow that up... If I create a new top level DP drive hierarchy, how do I prime the new top level drive with the contents of DP drive below it?
  4. Okay, so I've been thinking more about this again. Here's my plan to have a FIFO SSD cache. Create a DrivePool of magnetic drives (E:) Create a DrivePool of solid state drives (F:) Create a DrivePool containing E: and F: (D:) I would create placement rules for D: that tell DP to only place files on F:. Then I'd simply write a PS script that would check free space on F: and move files to E: until there was XXXGB of free space. If it matters, the only reason that E: and F: would exist is so that I don't have to find the underlying disk with the most free space on E: or find the SSD under F: that needs files archived off. I just have my script move things and let DP deal with file placement. Would this work?
  5. I actually assumed that's how they would work, but apparently not. I have an SSD that I want to add to the pool, but only have new files placed there. As soon as I create the '* > SSD' rule, DP starts filling up the SSD. What am I not understanding?

    DrivePool SSD Cache

    No. I asked about this a few months ago as well. At the time, I started working on a PowerShell script that would move stuff in FIFO fashion from SSD to platter. At that time, I failed. But I've started working on it again.
  7. This is all a good point. Not sure why I didn't think of it before. Thank you. edit: Can I 'backup' the same data from the same CloudDrive to multiple storage providers?
  8. I'm confused and concerned. I use CloudDrive to backup important client data for my business, as I assumed it was the perfect backup solution. Are people actually losing data?
  9. I often travel for work with simply my ChromeBook. Is it possible for me to access my encrypted files from it?
  10. Just checking in to see if any movement was possible on this?
  11. While I would guess that there's no real correlation, that was the easy part in PowerShell. This recursively (and surprisingly quickly) searches a directory and grabs the two oldest files: $fileNames = Get-ChildItem -Path $searchPath -Force -Rec | Where-Object { -not $_.PsIsContainer } | Sort-Object CreationTime | Select-Object -Property FullName -First 2
  12. Pretty please? Just to reiterate my use case: My media server has quite a few users. As new media comes in, it's likely to have a lot of viewers and therefore a lot of I/O. As files get older, fewer and fewer people access them. So I'd love to have an SSD landing zone for all new files, which then get archived off to platters as space requires. It would be fantastic if I could say, once the SSD drive(s) reaches 80% full, archive files down to 50% using FIFO.
  13. This is turning out much more difficult than anticipated with my limited PowerShell skillset. How would I go about putting in a feature request?
  14. Ah, that's probably it! The link that @Jaga posted above might need to be updated. http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Utilities#DrivePool_Command_Utility
  15. So I'm finally getting around to writing this... I'm playing with dp-cmd right now and ListPoolParts doesn't seem to work correctly. Does it need to be in a certain directory to work? c:\Users\Administrator\Desktop>dp-cmd.exe ListPoolParts Error: Method not found: 'CoveUtil.OmniStore.Store CoveUtil.OmniStore.Store.Create(Boolean, Boolean, System.IO.DirectoryInfo, Boolean, CustomSerializer)'. Details: System.MissingMethodException: Method not found: 'CoveUtil.OmniStore.Store CoveUtil.OmniStore.Store.Create(Boolean, Boolean, System.IO.DirectoryInfo, Boolean, CustomSerializer)'. at DrivePoolCmd.DrivePoolTasks.ListPoolParts() at DrivePoolCmd.Program.Main(String[] args)
