  1. Hi, I am about to extending my pool with a new set of drives. In the past I moved from drive bender to this because 1 drive died / got stuck and I wanted to take advantage of the Scanner. So my current setup is a bunch of single disks and a RAID5 pool to prevent data loss of one drive, all added to one pool. I am now asking myself if it is still clever with drivepool and the scanner in place to build a second RAID5 drive with the new drives and add it to the pool or to keep it as a bunch of disks and rely on the scanner? Is there any advantage / disadvantage in using RAID5
  2. Hi, Just started a trial of the scanner product and already finding it immensely valuable in going through all my old drives and checking drives before going into a NAS. Will be purchasing very soon. My question is around the potential impact of running the scanner on RAID arrays in external DAS enclosures for example. There's always talk of drives being dropped from RAID 5 arrays due to unrecoverable errors. May running the scanner have a a similar impact? Likewise for JBOD volumes. Well done on a great product, particularly the cloud SMART integration.
  3. Hello, I moved most of my hard drives from my main PC to my Storage / HTPC server. Now currently I am running a - Windows Raid 1 (duplication) two 3 TB drives (personal Media up to 2011) - 1 Single 3 TB harddrive (personal other files) - 1 single 2 TB files which seems to be slowly failing (personal Media 2012+) - adding two new 3 TB drives next week all of those are backed up to the cloud with crashplan. Crashplan is re-synchronizing right now. I heard much good about drivepool. BUT I am really confused why I hardly cant find any YOUtube videos like reviews or hands one video
  4. Hi there, I'm using Stablebit DrivePool with 5x4TB drives. I'd like to have the configuration set so if two drives fail, my data is still intact. I believe this should give me 12TB of usable space, if the data is striped and made redundant across the appropriate number of disks. Does Stablebit work in this manner? Basically, I'm looking to replicate the tolerance features RAID6 or RAIDZ2 with Stablebit (of course, these two RAID solutions are very different, but I think you get the idea)
  5. The topic of adding RAID-style parity to DrivePool was raised several times on the old forum. I've posted this FAQ because (1) this is a new forum and (2) a new user asked about adding folder-level parity, which - to mangle a phrase - is the same fish but a different kettle. Since folks have varying levels of familiarity with parity I'm going to divide this post into three sections: (1) how parity works and the difference between parity and duplication, (2) the difference between drive-level and folder-level parity, (3) the TLDR conclusion for parity in DrivePool. I intend to update the post
