  1. I recently ordered some new hardware from a supplier I've used for many years and when looking back through my order history, I noticed that I had purchased four 2TB Samsung HD204UI drives from them 10 years ago - three of these drives are still going strong in my file server! I've had numerous drives fail on me over the years, yet these ones just keep going! This got me thinking - how old is the oldest drive you have in your PC/server? Whilst I now know these HD204UI's are 10 years old, Stablebit Scanner reports them as around 7 years 300 days old, so I assume that's been their "power on
  2. Before I start, let me say that I did my best due diligence and read through and utilized these three related forum posts but none of them helped me resolve my issues: http://community.covecube.com/index.php?/topic/92-some-drives-not-recognized-by-drivepool/ http://community.covecube.com/index.php?/topic/1061-some-external-usb30-drives-not-recognized-by-drivepool/ http://community.covecube.com/index.php?/topic/1112-usb-hdds-no-longer-showing-in-drivepool-ui/ I am running the trial and doing extensive testing in a virtual machine before spending the money on a license for the DP so
  3. Greetings, I have two NAS devices, plus a few local hard drives, and I'd like to aggregate them all together in one Pool (ie, so that they show up as a single drive in Windows). From reading through the website and forum it seems like this may be possible, but in my initial experiments with DrivePool and CloudDrive I'm having trouble achieving this. I can create a pool of the local drives in DrivePool, and I can create a drive of a shared folder using CloudDrive. But I'm not seeing that CloudDrive location show up in DrivePool. From my initial looking I think I'd prefer to just use Dri
  4. This isn't really a DrivePool question directly, but my comp tends to have drive overheats, which isn't good. Obviously the real fix is hardware, (fans, etc) but in the interim, would it be better to have DP fill my biggest drive, then the next, then the next, etc. instead of having it spread across all the drives, allowing the smaller/older drives at the end of that list to be unused and idle and not generating heat in the case, OR.... is it best to spread it out among all the drives evenly even though the case seems to have trouble keeping up. If that makes sense. Which it may not. B
  5. I had maxed out my nearly 4 year old 8-bay Calvary enclosure (EN-CADA8B-SD) with 2TB drives and was beginning to have issues somewhere in the storage chain (eSATA port multiplier card, drivers, eSATA cables, Calvary enclosure, etc.). After troubleshooting off and on for a couple weeks or longer, I was ready to replace it with something less problematic that wasn't limited to 2TB drives. I didn't however want to spend half a grand for something that came with RAID functionality I knew I'd never use. For the time being, I wanted to continue using my existing drives and just replace the enclos
  6. I've gotten this message a few times, and am just curious, when it happens, what should I do? I'm still testing DrivePool out, and I love the concept, but just want to make sure things work the way I expect before purchasing it and "moving to production" with it. So, ignoring for the moment "why" it happens, when it happens, should I reboot, or disconnect/reconnect the drive, or what? Also, when it says "ST2000DM 001-1CH164 SCSI Disk Device (S/N: --------) 34°C - 1.82 TB (Pool: DrivePool (R:\))" is missing, what's the recommended way of me determining which physical disk that is given
