  1. My disks are detected, and it seems to be detected on some level on the software. But it's not pooling, or showing up as the pools.
  2. I use DrivePool for two pools Pool 1 - Physical HDDS * x3 8TB HDDS * x2 500 GB SSDs as Balancer Pool 2 - CloudDrives *x2 StableBit Cloud VHDDs that form a singular drive letter Now, I restarted a few times to install a new SSD. But my program seems to be detecting the pools, because it shows the "non-pooled" drives. But even then, my drives aren't present in the application or windows explorer.
  3. Contacted them... is anyone else getting this error? Has occurred more than 20 times now, where the chunk is unavailable both in my local and duplicate drive. All that data lost...
  4. Haven't submitted a ticket, I'm used to suffering data loss at least 2-5 time a year with StableBit cloud. Nothing I can do about it
  5. It doesn't work. I've still suffered data loss multiple times with this enabled...
  6. Is there an actual purpose to pinning? For all intents and purposes it should behave as responsive as any other file, until you need to access said file. But most of the time, accessing the drive or certain folders freezes Windows Explorer for a few seconds. Isn't pinning supposed to prevent this?
  7. Just noticed I have missing data again... and I’ve been on the duplication beta for weeks
  8. This happened this month, not in march
  9. I can't even fix my drive with CHKDSK, because I get an error no one seems to know how to solve. 12 TB of Data.....
  10. How does a Virtual Volume even get damaged? It makes no sense to me. I had the drive running normally, no power outages, and upload verification was on. So why does StableBit connecting 200 times (user-rate limit exceeded) cause a drive to even become RAW in the first place, what's the point of Upload Verification? In some software it can still detect the drive as NTFS, but it still makes no sense. It's a virtual drive reliant on Chunks (that should be safe due to upload verification). I detached the drive, and mounted it again, and the Drive was still RAW. How do chunks even become RAW in the first place, it's like mounting the drive on another computer and it being raw too.
  11. Nope. Chkdsk totally scrambled all my files into video142.mkv, so recovering 12TB is as good as useless. CHKDSK did more harm than good
  12. I think it's just a matter of Recovering the Partition Table. I ran TestDisk, and it reports the drive as "NTFS", and more additional information, but it gets stuck on the "analyze" part. I'm sure that if I can find reliable software to recover the table, I should be back in business.
  13. Pertinent Information: I had a major data loss weeks ago when Google had their downtime and made sure not to repeat the same mistake by enabling upload verification. I noticed the other day that Google was having issues, and the CloudUI reported the error more than 250 times. Today I checked and saw that a huge chunk of my are missing. I saw that my Cloud "Pool" was still working and there were a number of files, but then I had the intuition that this wasn't normal data loss like last time; it was isolated to one of the disks in the pool. Pool Setup: Initially I had a 10TB Drive that had filled up, and to enlarge it, I went through the steps in the UI and it created another partition instead of enlarging the existing one. I pooled these two together to have them under the same Name and Drive Letter for organization purposes. In addition, I removed drive letters for the "pool drives" to prevent clutter. Keeping the above in mind, I checked DrivePool, and it confirmed that the first Drive was "missing" and checking in Disk Management, the Drive is marked as "RAW". The first thing I did was follow these steps: It doesn't seem to have done anything, as the drive is still RAW. I also assigned a Drive Letter to the problem disk, and ran "CHKDSK /f". It deleted index entries, and didn't complete due to "insufficient disk space to insert the index entry" it also placed unindexed files in "lost and found". I need some advice on how to go forward with this, I don't want to lose 10 TBs of Data again. What can I do to recover my data? Should I detach the disk, and reattach it?
  14. Ok, but how do you convert the disk from RAW back to NTFS...?
