    Drivepool and ReFS

    If I'm not mistaken I think that Drashna is running his pool with ReFS. You should ask him about his experience with it.
  2. You can think of integrating this onto your server: http://snapraid.sourceforge.net/ This way, you can recover from a disk that dies.
  3. Thanks for all the help! I replaced the disk with another one (same model) and applied the WDidle fix to it (with the /d option). I'll monitor it and see if the problems comes back. Thanks for the great software that helped me notice. Without it, the drive would just have failed and I wouldn't have had a clue.
  4. Another question regarding this: Do I disable the Time Out feature completely or do I use the maximum time possible?
  5. I just installed the Beta version of the scanner and suddenly it isn't a problem anymore? Maybe the new Cloud Enabled Drive Reliability Information feature is now giving the correct parameters for the drive?
  6. I'm going to try the wdidle tool on the disk. It can't hurt anyway, I already moved the data from the disk. and even if it doesn't work, I'm going to use the disk as a feeder disk for the others untill it dies. And that other tool you suggested is a nice alternative.
  7. Power on time is 131 days and 13 hours. The Load Cycle Count is 301757 now (previous value was 300881) so 900 more then my first post. Is it still safe to use then? And how do you know that the tool is compatible with your drive?
  8. It's not a WD Green drive, it's a WD Black drive (2,5"). Serial number of the drive is WD5000BPKX-75HPJT0. Unfortunately it's not under warranty any more I will try to use that tool on my other drives which are Green drives. What's the best setting for the idle timer?
  9. Today I got the message that one of my disks has a SMART error. The Load Cycle Count is over 300000 (300881 at this moment). How serious is this exactly? Do I need to replace the disk immediatly or can I still use it for a while? Just to be sure I removed it from my drive pool (data was evacuated without a problem).
  10. Here you go! https://www.dropbox.com/s/1xab4mu8fff0jdh/snapraid-helper.ini https://www.dropbox.com/s/qhjzwzwg24h1dez/snapraid-helper.ps1
  11. I'm using this script with snapraid: http://sourceforge.net/p/snapraid/discussion/1677233/thread/3afc8cb4/?limit=25&page=1#9a07 And it works extremely well.
  12. I think you will suffer a 50% hit. A X2 duplication is basically the same as a mirrored software raid setup. But there are also other options you can reconsider depending on what kind of data you have on those drives.

    Hot spare option?

    Hi, Just a quick question. Does DrivePool have the option to include a hotspare disk so that when it detects a disk that is failing it will automatically switch to that disk?
