It just seems that any good program should be as clean and tidy as it can be!!! DP doesn't seem to respect its own placement rules. I have a "scratch" HDD for most u
Hi, running Drivepool and Scanner on Windows 2012R2 with 4 * 3TB drives. Added the disks to a pool and set for (2 *) duplication. There is currently no other data stored on any of the disks. I was adding VHDX files to my Virtual Machines yesterday, storing them on the Drivepool drive, and noticed that as I was adding them the value of “Other” was going up under the Drivepool interface. Looking in My Computer I have used about 0.4 TB of space on each of the disks, so in total 1.60TB of data. Looking at the Pool disk in My computer shows I have about 1.59 TB of data on it (so those 2
