    BugCheck / Reboot When Attempting to Write to Share

    @kgian Could you open a ticket at https://stablebit.com/Contact, if you haven't already?

    New Pool: Duplicate before adding data or after?

    They're both the Enterprise versions, and legally speaking, only available via Volume License means, as far as I'm aware (that and MSDN or whatever they've renamed it to). So, Windows 7 Enterprise, or Ultimate, yes. And remember, if you're not the customer, you're the product.

    Server 2019/Server 1809/Win10 1809 + Deduplication + DrivePool = NO GO

    Unfortunately, the eval center still doesn't give a link to the ISO. And while the ISO may still be at the link you've posted, it's not a publically available one. Disagree. Running it on any system that it is not included with already, or LICENSED for is a violation of the licensing, to start with. Not to mention, it's not designed nor testing on these other configurations, and may cause issues. Additionally, for the most part, people post links to the files, which are copyrighted, and may be a copyright violation, as well. So, yeah "hack" is very accurate here.

    New Pool: Duplicate before adding data or after?

    As long as your hardware isn't using Skylake or newer CPUs. And AMD is doing the same thing (dropping support for Win7). So .... yeah....

    Drivepool with Local Disks and Parity via CloudDrive

    Yes. Just keep in mind that you're splitting the usage between things, and you may see a performance hit for doing so. That depends on your usage. I'm personally using a couple of 120GB SSDs and they work great for my needs. But if you want to use the CloudDrive cache on them, then the larger, the better. As in, get the largest size you can reasonably justify buying.

    Server 2019/Server 1809/Win10 1809 + Deduplication + DrivePool = NO GO

    Okay, I just wanted to make sure! Well, Microsoft pulled them because of the profile purge issue. I don't see the ISO, at all. And yeah, I know about the hack. Yup, we plan on it. We're just waiting for Microsoft to re-release the ISOs so we can do testing. Ah, yeah, I can see that being an issue, potentially.

    Issues connecting to server

    Yup, that's ... a weird one, and you'd opened a ticket for this too. Glad it was a simple fix, though.

    Server Essentials 2019 - What's the point - What's next

    The point of the 2019 Essentials... is that it's the new "Foundation" server. No user CALs to worry about. That's about it. And it may be cheaper than the Standard SKU. For me, I may upgrade to 2016 (I'm on 2012R2 Essentials), to get some of the Win10 goodness. But I'm not sure that I'll be using 2019. Mainstream support means no more features. But it should still get security updates for a few more years after that. So you should be good.

    Reformatted Drives not appearing in the Non-Pooled list

    Yup, we use volume IDs to track the disks, actually. However, there is some changes to how that's handled in the latest beta, so this may not be an issue in the future.

    Drivepool with Local Disks and Parity via CloudDrive

    Yeah, that's basically correct. The "Read Striping" feature should do this, actually. However, directory enumeration will cause activatity on the cloud, but reads should happen from the local disks. Writes may be slower, because it's writing to both pools, and therefore the CloudDrive disks. So it would heavily depend on how fast those drives are. Also, if you were to use the SSD Optimizer with the Z:\ pool, that would help too.

    Problems with uptime of my DrivePool on an USB enclosure

    Well, I'd be inclined to blame this on USB (since USB has a number of issues that could cause this sort of behavior, actually), but if you were seeing the exact same thing before with internal drives... If you could, enable drive tracing, let this happen, and then disable tracing. http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_2.x_Log_Collection Also, run the StableBit Troubleshooter, and use "3895" for the Contact ID. http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter

    Error - 0x800705AA when copying from client PC to Network Share

    The command should be "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=highlyrestricted", and would need to be run on both systems, and the rebooted. And if that doesn't help, then let me know.

    Server 2019/Server 1809/Win10 1809 + Deduplication + DrivePool = NO GO

    Are you trying to enable deduplication on the Pool itself, or the underlying disks? Also, it may be hard to test this, as the 2019 ISO's aren't back up yet, I believe. Also, make sure that the "bypass file system filters" option in StableBit DrivePool is disabled. If it's enabled, it will break deduplication

    Few requests

    Actually, yes. That's part of what we want to do with StableBit Cloud. Good news! the latest beta has a concurrency limit, that you can configure. It defaults to 2 drives, right now. So this should help you out greatly! http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/StableBit.CloudDrive_1.1.1.1057_x64_BETA.exe

    Few requests

    Glad to hear it! And yeah, we don't get anywhere near the number of bug reports, that we used to. (which is a mixed blessing :D) Though, there are other products and services to release now, too.
