  1. I have a setup with a 3 pools: 1 pool consisting only of drives, 1 pool of only cloud drives, and both are part of a hybrid pool which is my main pool. I setup duplication on the hybrid pool and want to make sure any new files are written initially to the drive pool then duplicated to the cloud pool. I disabled automatic balancing on the hybrid pool, and setup the drive usage limiter so the cloud pool only has duplicated checked and the drive pool has unduplicated checked. But adding new files, it's frequently selecting the cloud pool as the destination, but since I am still backing up my data to the cloud pool, it's cache is filled up uploading existing data, making writes painfully slow. Are there any other settings I can do so that my drive pool is always used when writing new files to the pool? Edit: Might have forgotten to uncheck real-time duplication. I had a forced reboot (bluescreen) on my PC and had to re-add the cloud pool to my hybrid pool, and in reconfiguring it, I might have forgotten to uncheck real-time duplication.

    Disk not seen

    I actually ran into an issue with a disk not showing up to add to the pool, but in this case the disk was already GPT and I had just been using it. The real fix for me then was to delete the partition then re-create it. That's what got all of my disks to show up for selection.

    Disk not seen

    I had some similar issues with disks not showing up in the list and had a mix of issues (migrating from another pooling software): 1. Most of the disks not showing up were MBR format, which for some reason didn't show up on DrivePool. Converted them to GPT by deleting the partition, converting to GPT, then creating a new partition. Those disks then showed up. 2. For some reason, one of my disks had no space allocated to the partition. Did the same as 1, but just needed to delete and recreate the partition (it was already GPT). That one then showed up. The disks were mixed between an LSI card and USB controllers, but now after fixing them above, they all show up and are in DrivePool now without issue. Edit: Scratch 1. I had a disk I had that was already GPT but was not showing up to add to the pool. Doing number 2 restored it, even though the partition was fine and I had been using the disk independently prior.
