  1. Chris has suggested this in the past: 1. Take the drive offline in disk management 2. Turn off all pinning in the CloudDrive UI 3. Clear the local cache, and wait until it's down to 0 bytes (literally empty) 4. Bring the cloud drive back online from disk management You may need to repeat step #3 a couple of times to get this to work. Specifically, this clears out the cache and forces the software to redownload the data from the cloud, including the file system data. Setting the drive as offline ensures that drive data is not updated, and that any open files are forcibly clo
  2. Hi Anyone use Stablebit Scanner on there Cloud Drives as well? Im using this on the Host PC and the Cloud Drives are working on Windows Virtual Machines. it not going to help with Smart Issues as that will be picked up on the host just seeing if it will make sure nothing is getting corrupted within the Cloud Drives file system. Thanks
  3. I too had the same issue which I was lucky to resolve. I had 5 10TB cloud drives in a pool all on separate google accounts. 1/5 mounted RAW I was lucky I had this mirroring to a separate account, I removed the faulty drive and did a sync back to the pool for any of the missing files from the backup, which got me up and running. This could have been far worse, I was thinking if I left the backup in READ ONLY that could potentially minimise the damage should this happen. We dont really plan for the failure to be caused by the provider itself.
  4. Thanks Chris. I suppose I could live with the slowness as long as the uploads completed as I have the spare disk space for the cache, and this is only a mirror backup. However I just logged in now and found all 5 of the disks have unmounted and show show as available to connect, when I try to reconnect any of them the Cache Drive letter is not in the drop down box any more. It is mounted in Windows with a drive letter and I can browse the drive as normal. All the cache data is still there nearly 800gb waiting to upload and it still has 500gb of available space left. An
  5. Hi I'm after some experiences with OneDrive Business. After using Google Drive with no issues with speed, I'm not having a good upload experience. I have created 5x5TB drives using separate OneDrive Business accounts, all pooled with DrivePool using the DrivePool fixed placement plugin so each drive fills up one at a time. I have set the storage chunk size to 100mb. I have experimented with 2/5/10/20 threads and have seen the speed get upto 200mbps. Overall I'm lucky to see 6GB an hour of actual moved data to the cloud.

    Hi Guys How often do you normally see "Measuring" occurring on your Pools? In my case with about 4TB in Cloud Drives its taking over a day and still showing this message. And seems to impact the speed of the pool. Thanks
  7. Hi Guys I have made a Hierarchical Pool with Cloud Drives. Are you setting up the balancers from the TOP level of the pool? I have "Measuring" (Lower Bar) displayed on the Lowest level of the pool but nothing showing on activity on the TOP Level? File operations show on both. Is this normal?
