  1. Hi, I got a question: Ok, Here's what I am starting with: Local Machine D: 2 GB E: 5 GB F: 3 GB Local Network Server Windows Fire Share Lots of space. Network: 10 gbit network. Now, what I want to do: (already tried, actually) 1st pool: Local Pool D: E: F: No duplication, just 1 big 10 GB pool. "Local Pool Drive" is the name. 2nd pool: Cloud Drive, Windows File Share Provider, 10 GB disk, no encryption. "File Share Drive" is the name. 3rd Final Pool +"Local Pool Drive" +"Fire Share Drive" Some folders like my Steam Games
  2. I've been seeing quite a few requests about knowing which files are on which drives in case of needing a recovery for unduplicated files. I know the dpcmd.exe has some functionality for listing all files and their locations, but I wanted something that I could "tweak" a little better to my needs, so I created a PowerShell script to get me exactly what I need. I decided on PowerShell, as it allows me to do just about ANYTHING I can imagine, given enough logic. Feel free to use this, or let me know if it would be more helpful "tweaked" a different way... Prerequisites:
  3. Hey all, I figure I would ask here because smart people use Drive Pool! I just got rid of WHS 2011 as my home server software due to unacceptable issues, unreliability and boot issues. Obviously it did have a great client PC backup system that worked fairly well where windows 10 does not. I am running a drive pool with first level folders that I map various users to on their PCs, so we are not talking high tech here! I gave VEEAM endpoint free a go, but it will not 'see' the network mapped drive I allocated for the backups. The permissions are all OK, just being a pain. I am now o
  4. Im currently planning to have 2 pools with a few drives each and no duplication on either. Im wondering how backup and recovery can be accomplished with this setup. Specifically, id like to answer 2 questions: 1. How can I recover only missing files (with the correct folder structure) from a backup in the event of drive failure. (programs, suggestions and/or anecdotes welcome, Im trying to find the optimal solution) 2. How long can a secondary pool made for offline backup stay without being updated/connected? WIll future updates make older pools unreadable and if so
  5. Hi, I apologize if this is too general or not the right place to post this, but I havent been able to find an answer thus far, so Im posting this in the hopes I can get the answers without testing myself. I currently have quite a few hard drives in a jbod collection. What I hope to do is have one pool of 15TB of in use drives, combined with a total of 28TB in new storage where I can have a pool of 21tb in always on drives backing up periodically to a pool of 22tb TBD drives which would be either for file duplication in a raid 1 fashion or backup. What Im unsure of is how I can
  6. I have tried to search for this but haven't seen an answer. What files do i need to backup if I need to reinstall the os? I have done this once before and I lost all information on drive status's, bays, etc... I would like to preserve that information on my reinstall. I'm sure I could figure it out if I looked long enough but hoping you have this information handy.
  7. Hi, I'm setting up a new home server and I just downloaded the DrivePool and Scanner apps to test out. I am trying to figure out the best setup to maximize my storage space but also have solid "real" backups and not just duplicated files. Duplication of files is great but isn't a real backup, since if I accidentally delete a file the duplicate is also automatically deleted. Duplication also doesn't allow for file versioning. I have six 8TB drives and I was thinking of creating two 24TB drive pools: a "Data" pool for live storage and a "Backup" pool to store backups of everything on
  8. Hello all, I am just coming here to get specific instructions on how to safely and relatively easily format my current PLEX Media server PC, which i use Stable bit DRIVE POOL and Scanner on that main machine to monitor my Western digital RED HDDs 4TB (x4 in a drivepool using Stablebit). Long story short that pc is acting very very weird,slow, not loading half the time, and its freaking me out because my entire media collection are on those drives/pc. Seems that the motherboard and pc do not fully work right with Windows 10, so i guess i have no other choice but to format entire windows Dri
  9. I've searched but cannot find (perhaps I missed it) whether it is possible to back a WHS 2011 to a Drive Pool. I created a pool and it was listed in the Server Backup options as a Virtual Disk. But when I selected it I received a dialog box telling me that I had selected a drive that was on multiple disks which would be reformatted and all data lost. Since I had existing data, I stopped. Is there some change in procedure needed? I'm trying to reduce the frequency of physically carrying my backups off site by creating a larger drive to receive the backup files. Thanks.
  10. Hey all! I'm still on my trial of DrivePool but am overall liking it quite a bit. However, I've run into one major problem I don't know how to solve and I'm hoping someone here knows a solution. I use the paid version of Macrium Reflect to backup my entire gaming PC. It writes a main image that's a full backup (it usually comes out to about 1-1.3TB after compression) and then writes up for 4 incremental backups after that, then rotates those out, always keeping no more than 5 backups. My DrivePool lives on my home server under my desk and I run the Macrium Reflect backup set to a share I h
  11. What are you guys using for an off site incremental backup solution for your drive pool?

    Hello, I'm currently receiving SMART warnings for my main SSD, so I'm looking at purchasing a new one ASAP. I've already made a backup of my main drive using Acronis True Image 2015, so I'm ready to go there. Should I expect any wonky effects with my pool itself upon restoring my main drive from a backup? Any precautionary measures I should take before I make the switch or while restoring? Currently using Drivepool x64 v on Windows 8.1. Thanks!
  13. Hello, I have been using stablebit drivepool since may of 2012 and have been happy as a clam. No problems to speak of. I finally have a reason to register and post, I have have a HP N40L, with 5 drives. a 250 gig for os, 2 750 gig drives and two 1TB drives. Recently I removed a 750, and then added a 3TB drive. I formatted the drive by remote desktop as one large 3TB drive. Added to the pool and was working great. Now I see that my server backups are failing. (I backup to a 2TB external drive) The failure shows as \\?\volume{e and a bunch of numbers (assuming drive id) Do I
  14. Hello there, I am using the register Scanner v2.5.1.3062 under Windows Server 2012 R2 x64, running some HyperV VMs. Whenever Windows Server Backup performs backups (during the Shadow Copy phase I think), I get lots of errors in the Windows logs like this: The Harddisk and volume numbers keep changing, and do not correspond to a real HDD in my setup. From what I read, WSB temporarily mounts virtual drives to perform backups. Those errors (~ 10 per backup) are raised by the process Scanner.Service.exe from Stablebit Scanner. I suspect that the Scanner sees those virtual drive
