    Source for Disk Info

    We pull the info from the performance counters in Windows, actually. To that point, in some cases, we've had to reset them to get performance to show: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q2150495 Also, StableBit Scanner does expose some info to WMI. You can look at phpsysinfo for details on what it exposes, actually.

    DrivePool and Windows Containers

    Are you trying to pass the pool drive through? If so, that may be the problem. It contains no actual data, and is a emulated drive. Meaning that it requires that the underlying drives be connected to the system.

    Drivepool good with torrent activities?

    Thanks for the troubleshooting. That may definitely help! https://stablebit.com/Admin/IssueAnalysis/28059

    Drivepool on new Windows install

    Yes.

    Remove duplicated data

    This. If needed, remeasure the pool, and it will kick off a duplication pass.

    Make a Network Share act as a Hard Drive?

    Not really. The two best ways to do this, are StableBit CloudDrive and iSCSI. But nether show existing content. There are other ways to do this (I think netDrive does), but YMMV.

    How to set it to duplicate to certain drives

    The best way would be to add the cloudDrive disks to a separate pool, then add both pools to a new pool, seed that top level pool, and enable duplication on the top level pool. This way, one copy is hosted on the cloudDrive disks, and one is on the local disks

    Scanner reporting almost all drives system damaged

    What controller card are you using now? Also, is this for the surface scan? If so, try running the burst test on the drives in question. If that comes back with errors, there are communication issues with the drive, and not actually damaged sectors (but it ends up with the same result). And do these errors happen when manually running CHKDSK?

    Drive removal seems stalled out?

    Could you enable logging, and then remove the drive? http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_2.x_Log_Collection Also, as for "stalled out", any unduplicated data will cause it to take much longer. And it still has to check the data.

    Stablebit Scanner loses all settings on unexpected shutdowns.

    Make sure that you're on the latest beta. There are some fixes that should hopefully prevent this from happening in the future. http://dl.covecube.com/ScannerWindows/beta/download/StableBit.Scanner_2.5.4.3220_BETA.exe If it's still happening on that version, let us know.

    Possible to pool two machines together?

    Not really. I mean, you can use the other system to host a CloudDrive, but it would need to use UNC paths to do so, and the data on that system would not be accessible locally.

    SDD optimizer can't be installed

    That's.... really odd then. Well, glad you got it resolved.

    One Drive Business Experiences

    Thank you! I've answered the additional questions in the ticket.
  14. Christopher (Drashna)

    Balancing and initial writes

    That's very odd. If you could, open a ticket at https://stablebit.com/Contact. Also, if you could enable drive tracing and reproduce the issue: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_2.x_Log_Collection And then run the StableBit Troubleshooter: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter

    DrivePool retired by Windows 2016

    This is pretty normal, actually. Specifically, something is requesting the data from certain blocks on the drive. Since no blocks of data actually exist, it errors out. As for the crashing, I suspect that this is unrelated. But just in case, open a ticket at https://stablebit.com/Contact and then run the StableBit Troubleshooter: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter
