  1. Hi, yes, x1 means no duplication. Welcome to DrivePool, hope you enjoy using it!
  2. A1: I'm not familiar with the Pace 5268A (or any other AT&T routers), sorry. Different country! In theory, generally, it should be possible to have router "A" handling internet traffic while router "B" handles local traffic without them fighting about it; in practice some routers are (much) less capable than others and some ISPs also lock down the functionality of routers they provide / mandate. For whatever it's worth, here's an example very basic setup: Internet <-> [WAN port] Router A [LAN port] <-> [LAN port] Router B [LAN port(s) and Wifi] <-> Local
  3. I'd just happened to check the forum and saw your post before going to bed, that's all. 1. Your screenshot indicates that DrivePool is stating the following about the folder you've named "Duplicated": Its files may be placed on E, F or G drives. E currently has 698 GB free. F currently has 856 GB free. G currently has 856 GB free. 18.7 GB of files are currently placed on E. 18.7 GB of files are currently placed on F. Nothing in the folder is placed on G (when nothing relevant is placed on a drive, that drive won't be shown in the "how much is placed where" secti
  4. 1. Curious. It could just be that it's kept picking the first two drives available simply because they've had enough free space to use? Do you have any other Balancers active (e.g. Duplication Space Optimizer)? 2. I have the same version (2.2.5.1237) of DrivePool; as with previous versions the manual Re-balance button should be available from the small upright triangle to the right of the Pool Organization bar. Though if DrivePool's happy with the current amount of balancing it may not do much/anything. 3. I've reproduced this on my own installation and have reported it to Stablebit.
  5. Hmm. I've had problems with flaky Seagate external USB HDD enclosures before, so I'd be curious whether you could run everything else if you left the Seagate Expansion unplugged.
  6. @Christopher (Drashna) is this a bug, or are there situations (other than "real-time" placement) where the Pool Organization bar not reacting to (presumed) balancer activity is considered working as intended?
  7. @Christopher (Drashna) Does rebuilding take an unpredictable time, or would it be possible for CloudDrive to provide some sort of progress indicator so that users know it's actually making headway? E.g. "Processing chunk x of y, est time to next chunk is z, est time to finish based on chunks so far is t"?
  8. I'm not quite sure what you've done (possibly merging the partitions has confused DrivePool?) but if you want to start over, you could try: stopping the service manually renaming all of the poolpart folders (hidden or not hidden) to have an 'x' in front of them (e.g. 'd:\poolpart.blah' -> 'd:\xpoolpart.blah') restarting the service (it should now show NO pools) creating a new pool with the settings you want stopping the service moving the content you want from the old (renamed) poolparts into the new poolparts restarting the service select M
  9. Hi @stangbass08 with the System Volume Information folder involved and false drives showing up, I'd recommend opening a support ticket with Stablebit so that they can fix it properly.
  10. If the activity bar is green and not moving, the DrivePool service is not performing any scheduled/requested tasks such as remeasures, balancing runs, consistency/duplication checks, etc. (This is not the same as whether other apps are reading/writing the pool - that's indicated by the Performance section). The fact is DrivePool's read performance simply can't match Storage Spaces because the former merges the logical volumes file-by-file while the latter stripes the physical disks block-by-block; you just cannot beat that kind of "bare metal" approach for raw read speed and low latency,
  11. DrivePool GUI, cog icon, Notifications; tick both "Notify on missing disk" and "Notify by email..."
  12. I've occasionally had problems with using Windows own built-in security tab to fix pools where (very) long paths are involved and/or where the permissions have broken in a way that isn't repaired by the tab. And when the usual power combo of takeown+icacls didn't fix them either (and wow finding out "why not?" was a trip down a rabbit hole), that's when I went hunting and thankfully found SetACL (which is why I've finally gotten around to creating this thread). I have however now edited my second post above to mention the wiki article at the top.

  14. Um. Given your earlier troubles, I'm beginning to wonder if there is something rather wrong somewhere with your computer. Bad cable, bad controller, bad something.
  15. Which balancers do you have enabled and (if changed from the defaults) what are their settings?
