  1. Thanks Shane and gtaus! I'm testing it with a few files and folders to begin with then will Re-measure the pool. If all is well I'll rinse and repeat. Hopefully in a few days the usage bar will be totally blue for all of my drives. My next project will be learning how to use (QTY 4) 256GB NVME's pooled as a cache for my Primary Pool and set up syncing with my Secondary Pool. I'll be able to sleep once all of our data is backed up to Google, Dropbox, and Backblaze. I hope to be as familiar with Stable Bit products enough to assist and answer others' questions. This is the
  2. I added a hard drive with data to my pool. What would happen if I move files from folders not in the pool folder into the pool folder? Would this be considered an illegal move according the DrivePool? My thought here is doing so moves data much faster because the move is thought of as moving data between folders on the same drive. Should I not do this? I know the other way is slower but I don't want to corrupt DrivePool or cause in unnecessary problems. Terry
  3. Try launching PowerShell as Administrator. I just ran it on my system and now the Admin account is the owner of everything. takeown /f F:\ /R /D Y Let me know if it was successful for you.
  4. JohnH, Please read this thread. It should help you untangle the problem you're having. Good luck, Terry
  5. Hi Edward, Maybe I can pass on to you what I did to solve that same problem last week. There are a couple of ways to take full control. One is through a PowerShell command and the other is using a GUI doing the same thing I suspect. Of course my work on a computer is based that we have a mouse so throw away the keyboard. Haha Google search for Winaero Tweaker and install. Once install look in the left side pane and find the section Context Menu. You want to add Take Ownership to the context menu of Windows Explorer by ticking the blank box. I don't recall if you need to restar
  6. Hi Drashna, Thanks for the reply. I apologize for wording the subject incorrectly. It should have been "How to split a current drive pool". With over 40 hard drives connected there are half that are connected externally. They are currently part of the 40 hard drive pool. My goal is to split the external hard drives so they become their own separate drive pool. The two pools will be mirrored. During storms I can power off and disconnect all external hard drives for safe keeping. Everytime I try to remove one of the hard drives from the pool Drive Pool insists on the standar
  7. I have a 12 bay SAN that screams while it's running. I need to create a new pool and move the drives from the SAN into the newly created pool. That pool will be my backup pool that I'll power on during the weekends to synchronize. At 4TB each I don't have a year to move data off then back on. How can I immediately remove a drive from a pool? As in 3,2,1, done. Thanks.
  8. Sorry for the slowness of responding, but, the license key won't work. I have two and have used one. What do I do? Isn't there a license portal to go to in order to check, delete, re-issue licenses?
  9. I wasn't aware there was such a site, but I would also like to know. It would be helpful because my license didn't work after a system crash and I reapplied the license. Having to run off a temp isn't good practice.
  10. I deactived DrivePool and moved the license to the new computer. The button appears and wants me to click to transfer license. After clicking it closes and the notice appears asking me to transfer license. It's stuck in an infinite loop. Rebooting doesn't solve the problem.
  11. Wow, I really appreciate the super fast response! Thanks for explaining it in such a way that I now completely understand. I guess I can't drop ExpanDrive after all. But CloudDrive definitely has a use it sounds for long term archival storage.
  12. Hi All, Maybe I misunderstood how CloudDrive works. I already have ExpanDrive and mounted the OneDrive for Business as drive Y:. Everyone in the company can see the contents. After installing CloudDrive it wanted me to create what seems to be a whole new drive, requested the size, then formatted it. After doing so none of the previous OneDrive data is there, nor anything that is copied there can be seen by other employees using their OneDrive in File Explorer. Can anyone shed light on what I did wrong? I would like to trash ExpanDrive and configure CloudDrive to be drive Y: and
  13. Sorry, I failed to mention that Disk 5 is the DrivePool's created drive. All of the physical drives that make up Disk 5 are all brand new and I used PassMark's BurnInTest for 24-27 hours before using them. The error is when DrivePool combines the 4 disks to make Disk 5. This has never happened to anyone from my research. Murphy's Law. Caught me again. I'm just going to take this in stride. Terry
  14. Hi All, DrivePool has been my favorite for home and small office so much that I recently installed on a friends' business server. Setup: HP DL380 Windows Server 2016 Standard 8GB RAM System partition x2 HP 250GB (RAID) Data partition x4 Seagate 2TB (using DrivePool) Brand new server installation from the ground up last night. Within 5 minutes of logging into the server it crashes. Event viewer lists only the following as the reason for crashing. "The IO operation at logical block address 0x21 for Disk 5 (PDO name: \Device\0000003f) was retried.
  15. The computer that I used as a server (iSCSI initiator) has a bad PSU. I desperately need the data so quickly turned one of the HP iSCSI Target servers into the initiator server. However, I don't see a way to add the VHDX's to the StableBit pool. Am I stuck moving all of the data from VHDX to Physical hard drives? I hope someone has a trick to add it. Thanks, Terry
