  1. Ooo I'll take a look at that location. Thanks! I'd tried the ping method earlier, but could never get the indicator lights to calm down enough to be able to make one out amongst the others.
  2. Gotcha, thanks. I'll upgrade. I assume there aren't any logs or anything though that I can use to restore the lost Bay info?
  3. My system just restarted. I'm not sure whether it's due to some Windows update or a crash of some sort or what... but when it booted up again, all the "Bay" and "Last Scan" data in Scanner was reset. The scans are an annoyance... having to rescan all my drives will take a while. But the Bay info is hard to work out again as I don't know another way other than disconnecting the drives and reconnecting them one at a time. Any thoughts on whether there's a way to restore the Bay info? Or, more generally, on what happened? Otherwise, thanks for some amazing products! Scanner v2.5.
  4. Yup, the ease of duplication was one of the main reasons I was attracted to DrivePool. Also, thank you; that clears things up: the "older parts" that will be deleted are the remaining parts of the damaged files, so that the intact copies can be re-replicated. Edit: I was going to mark your reply as the "best answer", but due to the architecture of this forum, that takes it out of the flow of the thread to be displayed at the top which I imagine would make it difficult to follow the conversation for anyone else. So I'll leave things as they are. Thanks!
  5. Yup, this is why I created a hierarchical pool. That feature being added a few months back was what pushed me towards DrivePool because I wanted to be able to create this exact setup. I was just explaining the reasoning so that the architecture makes sense. The drives are all NTFS. I was given the option to attempt recovery of the files. A scan found a 512B chunk missing from a 50GB encryption container, and a 2.00KB chunk missing from a 7GB video. The video is replaceable if anything, so not worried about that. But I would imagine the a 512B missing chunk would render the encrypted conta
  6. Howdy, I have a question on how DP's duplication works. My setup: Pool A: 4x (new) 8TB drives, no duplication, no mounting. Pool B: ~20x (old and used) 750GB - 2TB range drives, no duplication, no mounting. Pool A ~ Pool B in terms of space. Pool C: Pool A & Pool B, 2x duplication, mounted to a drive letter and network shared. (pending): 4x (new) 8TB drives, offsite, with a nightly sync with Pool C. I want full duplication, and I want to make use of all the old drives I have, but I also don't particularly trust the old drives. As such, I want a cop
  7. After doing a clean wipe, and reinstall, Scanner is a lot more responsive. It takes about 0.5-1s to respond to any interaction, which is more along what I was getting from the initial install. Hopefully the issues I had were due to hopping around between various versions. Connecting via RDP (my preferred method of accessing the server) is still slower than direct access, but still significantly improved. It now takes maybe 2-3s for the scrollbar to scroll after clicking, whereas before it was upwards of a minute. Not ideal, but certainly better than before and usable. If you'd like m
  8. Thanks, Christopher. Running the diagnostic tool now. Afterwards, I'll try the clean removal and reinstallation (of the current BETA). If it was half a second delay, that would be great. That's more like what it was like when first installed (before I connected more than ~4 drives for initial testing and playing around). Right now, for example, I just tried clicking on the scrollbar to scroll down the list of drives. After ~25 seconds, the window got marked `(Not Responding)`, with the interaction updating the UI ~5 seconds after that. I'm not running any extra software beyond what's
  9. Hello, I've been setting up a new system with Drivepool and Scanner. Drivepool has been working flawlessly, however Scanner has become so slow that it's completely unusable. System background: Windows Server 2016 Dual-core Opteron 6120s w/ 32GB of RAM LSI 9211-8i in IT mode split between a 24x SAS2 backplane and a 12x SAS2 backplane ~25 drives (totalling ~50TB) I have applied the registry hack to fix drive spindown on the LSI card. The program was fine initially, but as I added drives it became unusable due to the time it takes the GUI to respond
  10. I just wanted to say thanks for an awesome product. Drivepool is exactly what I've been looking for. Also, just as important, the support I've seen provided here and on reddit is probably the best of any company I've ever encountered. It's all the more commendable considering how small your team is. That level of customer service, more than anything else, prompted me to grab a copy and to recommend it to others. Thanks!
