    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

    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.

    Thank you! I've answered the additional questions in the ticket.

    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

    Pool constantly measures duplicates then balances in a loop.

    That's definitely not normal. If you could, open a ticket at https://stablebit.com/Contact and then run the StableBit Troubleshooter. http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Troubleshooter

    Problem with clouddrive after windows update

    Try running "chkdsk D:\ /f" on the system in question

    Clouddrive + Gdrive + plex performance problems

    I think you've opened a ticket for this. But in case you haven't, try disabling pinning and prefetching, and see if that helps.

    One Drive Business Experiences

    OneDrive for Business uses SharePoint as the backend, IIRC. And ... sharepoint is not known for performance. And that may be part of the issue here. That said, if you could open a ticket at https://stablebit.com/Contact

    Writes to MpWppTracing-%d-%n-00000003-ffffffff.bin file?

    I suspect that it's an update for the virus scanner, and just the odd way that it handles this. Reboot the system, and it will probably go away.

    I think you have opened a ticket about this.

    Problem with scanner and new drive

    What controller are the drives connected to?

    HDD sector errors, disconnect en copy content to new

    First, I'm sorry to hear about the disk issues, as that is never fun to deal with. That said, StableBit DrivePool doesn't handle cloning well. It causes issues for the software. However, you may be able to "fix" the issue by resetting the settings, or by doing this: http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_F1655

    SDD optimizer can't be installed

    It's installed already then. The installer that we use produces this error when it's already installed. Open up the balancer settings, and you will likely see it listed.

    Scanner for Non NTFS Drives

    Nope. It only supports NTFS drives, right now. The surface scan will work for any drive, but the rest only works for NTFS.
