  1. Sounds like the update affects .NET, then. Since both our software and Emby is written in C#
  2. Try installing the latest beta version of StableBit DrivePool. http://dl.covecube.com/DrivePoolWindows/beta/download/StableBit.DrivePool_2.2.3.950_x64_BETA.exe And see if that helps. I may, as there are some changes that may address the issue causing this. Additionally, it may be a good idea to run a CHKDSK pass on all of the disks in the system.

    Error Removing Drive

    That should be in Explorer.

    Drivepool apperantly causing BSOD after 1803 update

    @gamechld could you open a ticket at https://stablebit.com/Contact and then grab the full crash dump? http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_System_Crashes

    Guidance on using balancers for a 100% cloud based pool?

    Sounds like you'd want to use Hierarchical pooling here. That would accomplish what you want. Yup, you'd still want them enabled, honestly. Though, you should be fine leaving them at the default settings, since that's all you'll need to use.

    Striping data across CloudDrives to achieve faster uploads

    Nope. Not really. StableBit DrivePool deals with files directly. Duplicated data is written to all destination drives in parallel, because it writes out whole files. The only way to change that would be to go to a block level storage pooling solution. This is what stuff like Storage Spaces does.

    Drives hidden "PoolPart.xxx" folder changed names?

    Unfortunately, that does mean that the event, even if it was recorded by StableBit DrivePool, it wouldn't show up in the service logs. So, if this happens again, or you figure out what may have triggered this...

    Marvell 92xx (SI-PEX40097) cant spin down disks?

    If this is through StableBit Scanner's disk control, then it means that it doesn't support the methods used to do this. However, the drives may still be able to be idled normally bythe OS. As for that, LSI cards work very well.

    Drives hidden "PoolPart.xxx" folder changed names?

    Well, if this happened within the last 7 days, then could you run the StableBit Troubleshooter on the system in question? http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter use 3970 as the contact request ID.

    Problems with uptime of my DrivePool on an USB enclosure

    I hope so!

    DP won't see unmounted drive anymore!

    Awesome, glad to hear it!

    Scanner unfreezing my system.

    No idea. The service is what handles most everything. The only thing that the UI does would be the performance stats. So... maybe open up resmon, and open the disk tab, and see if that works?

    server reboots when removing a pool

    Okay, the crash does look like it may have been triggered by the DrivePool service (eg, the removal). https://stablebit.com/Admin/IssueAnalysis/28007 As for that error, check disk management, and see what it says on the disk. You may need to manually configure the page file, remove it from that drive, and reboot the system.

    Clouddrive ReFS support is bad, fifth lost ReFS drive this year

    haha, ... /cries Yeah, that's disappointing. I know that Alex was planning on looking at better supporting ReFS in StableBit CloudDrive. And if he's able to, maybe find a way to better recover it. But that's a long shot.

    Balancer wants to throw "everything" on cloud drive?

    Yes, it will. StableBit DrivePool places new files on the disk(s) with the most available free space. That means that the Google Drive will be the primary drive that it wants to place data on. Because 70TBs is more than the rest of the pool. Also, I'm guessing that you used the "Disk Usage Limiter" balancer, and unchecked "duplicated" for all of the drives but the CloudDrive disk. If so.... that doesn't do what you think it does. StableBit DrivePool has no concept of "original" or "copy". Both files are 100% identical, and can be used interchangeably. So bu unchecking "duplicated data" for the other disks, you've created a situation where the only valid location for duplicated data is a single drive. It wants to move the rest of the data off of the other disks, as much as possible. No, what I think you want to do is ... remove the CloudDrive disk from the pool, then add that disk, and the D:\ pool into a new pool. Enable duplication on that pool, (and optionally, remove it on D:\), that way, one copy is on the CloudDrive disk, and another is on the local pool.
