  1. Lol, thanks for the confirmation on my diagnosis of "Odd". I haven't noticed any other problems in the last couple days, so I'll just change my path in Snapraid to the new directory and start backing it up. Just wanted to ensure that this wasn't a warning sign of a problem that anyone was familiar with. Thanks!
  2. Hello! I purchased the suite of software about 6mo ago and everything has been great! This last week however, I went to run my regular snapraid backup, and it couldn't find the expected path for one of the PoolPart folders that had always been present on that particular drive. The drive letter didn't change or anything. As you can see from the attached pic (the left side of the window shows current folder name, and the right shows what it's always been previously), I've got 14 drives in the pool, and all of them have the same PoolPart names they've always had, but if you look at Drive K:, it's a completely new naming convention now. Any ideas what may have happened? Is this normal? I did actually replace this drive along with the one next to it (L:), however I didn't notice this behavior in with the 2nd drive. Unfortunately I hadn't run a backup for several weeks so I couldn't for sure blame it on the drive replacement and it was odd that it was only one of the two drives... DrivePool appears to be content and operating so should I just point SnapRaid at the new path and carry on? Thanks for any insight on this one!
  3. Well I certainly wasn't expecting a response that quick. I certainly appreciate that! Interesting! I wasn't aware that there were plugins available outside of the defaults. Yes, I can see how that would at least put me in the ballpark and any splits sound like they should be between two disks if need be instead of striped across all my volumes. I think this will be as close as I need! Thank you for your time and have a good weekend!
  4. Hello, I just downloaded a trial of your app last night after getting snapraid setup. I'm trying to manage 46tb of data in millions of organized file/folders that will be housed across 24 drives. I added 3 of my light duty drives to a drivepool to demo your app. I really like the existing feature set/gui/functionality of what's there. However as I'm looking at long term archival of data for what is potentially many decades to come while managing an ever growing data set. The idea of intentionally/irreversibly scrambling my hierarchys seems extremely counter intuitive to what I'm going for which is improving organization with multiple ways of recovering data. The current implementation of your code doesn't give me multiple ways out once you've undone all my organization. Sorry, I fully understand that it's my burden to find an app that suits my needs and not your responsibility to make changes that potentially go against this applications goals. I just wanted to add my voice to the chorus here stating that you'd surely have a long time customer if it does become possible to incorporate this functionality. I've seen your app mentioned many times in data circles I communicate in, but this massive drawback is always mentioned as a deal breaking caveat. Best of luck, you guys have done a good job with what's here!
