  1. Hi Chris, thanks for the reply. Do you know if it should be leaving an empty folder on the drive it moved stuff from? For example what I had in the original post. Folder: Drive (2011) - Movie inside of this folder. Originally on Drive #1 When the balancer started running it copied this entire folder and moved it to Drive #2 but.......it left the folder Drive (2011) with no movie inside of it on Drive #1. It did this to multiple other movies as well.
  2. Hi Guys, New user here. Here's what I'm working with (2) 5 TB Hard Drives 1 - 3.75 TB used of 4.55 TB 1 - 500 GB used of 4.55 TB When I first made the pool, nothing balanced and I had turned off my computer after this Upon turning my PC back on, automatic balancing started and now random files are getting placed onto the drive with more free space. And the percentage complete of the balancing is taking a looooooong time. Basically .1 percent every 7-10 mins. Is this by design? Why didn't it balance when I first created the pool? Do I just have to wait for it which seems like it will take some time? What happens when I add a new drive? Same thing? Also, I have a large movies folder and for some reason it looks like it is moving the actual movie folder but also leaving an empty folder on the drive the movie was originally on. Any help would be appreciated. I know this seems like a rant. Just new to it all really. UPDATE It finally finished. Took around 17 hours. :\ The issue with the movies folder still stands. Here's an example Folder: Drive (2011) - Movie inside of this folder. Originally on Drive #1 When the balancer started running it copied this entire folder and moved it to Drive #2 but.......it left the folder Drive (2011) with no movie inside of it on Drive #1. It did this to multiple other movies as well. I'm assuming this is all by design but it's just super weird to have a wasted folder with nothing in it.
  3. Hey guys. Just curious if anyone out there is running a media server (Plex or otherwise) while using Drivepool and also wanting to share their setup (how many drives, backup solution, etc) I’m about to start a media server myself and am just curious how you all use Drivepool to satisfy your needs. Me, personally, I am going pretty basic I think. Media Sever - Windows 10 running Plex (1) 8 TB drive - main drive (2) 5 TB drives - backup drives (pooled together and only powered on while backing up from main drive) Backup - using FreeFileSync to backup any changes/additions/deletions from main drive to the backup drives. I’m in the process of setting this all up so not a working example yet but it is what I’m hoping to do. Pick it apart and let me know if you guys can think of any thing I can change to make it easier. I like the simplicity of this so far.
  4. Hey guys. Just curious if what I am going to do will work. Current situation: Two 5 TB drives. One of which already has data on it One 8 TB drive. Has data on it What I would like to do is pool the two 5 TB drives and use them as an offline backup for my 8 TB drive. The 5 TB drives would only be on whenever I'm syncing up the files. I'd prefer to use FreeFileSync to sync the 8 TB to the the 5 TB's if possible so I would need to disable duplication if it's not already enabled I think right? I'm hoping I'm not missing anything as I think I've made this pretty simple but please ask me any questions if I haven't been clear enough. Thanks in advance for any replies!
