  1. I have noticed that my pool is very frequently measured and checked. I don't see anything in event logs that would suggest a faulty controller or drive, and Scanner is also not reporting any issues. Drivepool seems also to measure and scan frequently after reboots. I am running on Windows 10 with SATA Drives. I noticed that a cycle of measuring & checking may have been triggered by events of Macrium Reflect, which runs backups regularly on my machine.

  2. I am running a powershell script that initiates a system shutdown at a specific time - nothing fancy, basically just a "shutdown -s -t 60". I would like not to execute this script when DrivePool is doing anything, be it measuring, checking, balancing (or anything I have missed here). Is that possible? Are any "flags" accessble that I could use in a script? Initially I thought Windows Task Scheduler would be up to the job, because it has an option to prevent starting a task if the system is "idle", but this appears only to measure user activity. I would need something from DrivePool
  3. Thanks, that's what I thought.
  4. I have login issues with a dedicated Google account that I use for Clouddrive. I cannot login directly to google anymore, but strangely, it works fine with Clouddrive. Does Clouddrive store the username (and perhaps even password) somewhere where I could recover them?
  5. Quick question: is upload verification required for box? I've seen on the forum here that it's not necessary for some providers, but haven ot found a specific comment for box.
  6. I have a question about file placing rules. One drive ("SpecialDrive") of my pool should be dedicated to one folder ("SpecialFolder") and nothing else. I could obviously select under File Placement>Folders the correct pattern. But my understanding is that any new folder in root may be placed on SpecialDrive, and I don't want this. So is the correct thing to define Rules? If yes, is the correct setting: 1. \SpecialFolder\* > only SpecialDrive selected; "Never allow files to be placed on any other disk" active. 2. \* > only SpecialDrive unselected, "Never allow files t

    Cache on Pooled Drive

    I've realised that I actually cannot select the pooled drive as a cache drive...probably a safety feature that Alex implemented! As for the type of drive: why is an SSD better? I only have a 80/20 Mbit broadband connection, so obviously any HDD is faster...why would an SSD bring more performance?
  8. After a round of testing Stablebit's products, I've now happily bought a license for all of them. I have a quick question about the location of the CloudDrive cache. Is it okay to place this in a pooled drive created by DrivePool (all HDDs)? Or is it better to have dedicated drive outside the pool for this?
