  1. I had this problem when I was using .1159 as well. I downgraded back to .1145 to fix it. I opened a ticket and sent my logs, but no idea if they figured out the problem.
  2. Sure. I purchased and installed PartedMagic onto a USB. I then booted using this USB to run a Secure Erase, but it was not able to complete successfully. So I ran DD (through PartedMagic as well) on the drive around 5 times. I then converted the disk to GPT using diskpart and installed a fresh copy of Windows. I used CHKDSK, StableBit Scanner, and Intel SSD Toolbox (Full Diagnostic) to confirm that read/writes were functioning as intended. Based on what I could understand from Intel, it seems like the Optane drives are fairly unique due to their usage of 3D XPoint technology which caused the specific/strange behavior I was facing.
  3. Some background: I typically am constantly moving items to my CloudDrive, so the "To Upload" is always around 500GB. It is mounted on my Intel Optane 905P NVMe SSD. A few days ago, while I was remote, one of my automated programs tried to update the SSD Driver, and upon reboot, the SSD would not boot. At this time, the CloudDrive still had 500GB left to upload. Since I was remote, it got stuck in a restart cycle. When I was able to get to the computer, the only option I had was to reinstall Windows. While mounting the CloudDrive, I had a BSOD related to Memory Management. Long story short, the CloudDrive went through a forced reattach that was cut short, and then a recovery. It has mounted succesfully now. However, Scanner is obviously picking up the CloudDrive has a damaged file system. It is composed of 20 partitions, and it has found damage in every single one of them. Just for my sanity, I deleted everything I had uploaded to the Drive in the 3 days before the crash, but I am not sure if the drive uploads in a sequential manner, i.e. 3 days would cover the latest 500GB I had uploaded, but I am not sure if the drive was still trying to upload something I had moved a week ago. I also guess that even deleting the corrupt files is not enough. Is there a way to fix the file systems? On a more serious note, now Scanner is picking up damage to my SSD. It is showing an absurd 154,317 "Media and Data Integrity" issues with this number steadily increasing, and it finds around 250 sectors unreadable. When I run the file recovery, all the files can be recovered. I replace them, rerun the scan, but it finds a different number of unreadable sectors (203) and completely different corrupt files now. I ran the Intel SSD Toolbox. Quick Diagnostics gives 0 problems back, and Full Diagnostic fails instantly on the Read Scan with a statement saying to call Intel -- the Data Integrity portion of the Full Diagnostic passes. Now, I obviously know that I put this SSD through a lot, but I am really hoping that I can repair it. It is fairly stable -- there was only that one initial BSOD right after reinstalling Windows due to "Memory Management." Since then, I think it is running fine? Could this scan possibly be related to the damage on the CloudDrive since it is mounted on this SSD? Is it pending failure? Is there a way to fix this as well? Sorry for the long message, but I am not very versed in this stuff, so I figured I would give as much detail as I could. The SSD is very new and very expensive, and an idiotic program might have ruined it. I'm really hoping there's a way to fix it that avoids having to reinstall Windows for the (I just got everything set up again). EDIT/UPDATE: So, after doing a low level format of my SSD and doing a few extra steps as per Intel's instructions, it turns out that I was able to stabilize my Cache Drive. It was not due to the CloudDrive but due to some issue in the specific technology behind the Optane drive that was causing various files to become unreadable for small amounts of time. Now it is stable, and by ignoring the Error Count in Scanner unless there is further increases, everything seems to be going smoothly. I ran CHKDSK on each and every CloudDrive partition a few times using a batch file, and now everything seems to be stable there as well. I will run a file system scan to make sure it does not detect any more damage. I did lose data, but it was minuscule compared to how much was on the drive to begin with. Overall, it was a frustrating and stressful week, but I was able to get everything back to normal with minimal cost.
  4. I absolutely love DrivePool, Scanner, and CloudDrive, so I have downloaded the beta versions of each software. One thing I do for peace of mind whenever using a beta version of software is to link the changelog/update feeds of that product into my RSS feed so that I can be aware whenever a new version is available, as well as what that version contains. Especially since I use these products so heavily, I would love it if there were similar feeds for each one. I had found some text files earlier, but it was hard to use these. I know it's a bit of a specific usecase, but if you do get somee time to do it, it would be much appreciated!
  5. Thanks for your help. It seems to be working really well so far. To also quickly contribute to the topic, I use the below settings with bandwidth of 1000/40: Download Threads: 10 (not sure here) Upload Threads: 5 (not sure here) No background I/O No Download Throttling Upload Throttling: 30mbps Upload Threshold: 1 MB or 5 Minutes Minimum Download Size: 50 MB (not sure about this) Prefetch Trigger: 1 MB (not sure here, have some small files like books/comics, so I thought I should put a smaller value here. Also, maybe the video would start sooner) Prefetch Amount: 300 MB (not sure here) Prefetch Time: 10s (not sure here) Basically, I am not sure if the prefetch is optimally configured.
  6. Thanks! This worked perfectly. I was wondering if there was any performance hit from doing this?
  7. hello srcrist, I saw you mentioned in this thread that it is optimal to create a large drive partitioned into multiple 55TB partitions, which are then pooled together using DrivePool for this usecase. I have a lot of uploaded data now and am running out of space on my CloudDrive, so I am now looking to figure out a proper long term solution without having to reupload all my data. How did you set this up? My current allocation size is 32kb (max drive of 128 TB), and I do have Drive Pool. Would I have to reformat my drive and delete all the data to properly configure this?
