Drive Failure & Stablebit UpdatesHey guys, I'm currently trying add/replace another drive to my as my current drives are 3-4 years old and getting to the point of potential failure, despite Stablebit Scanner saying nothing. (Just me being paranoid and thinking ahead). Now, I've added, and removed drives before without any issues but what are the best practices for drive failure to get everything back and running. Current pool is 1x 4TB 1x 3TB 2x 2TB All at 2x Duplication, so 3.83TB left free of 10TB Pool. Anything I should do/tweak ahead of time? Also, I know y'all are working on getting CloudDrive up and running, but do you know when the next stable release for DrivePool is going to be? It seems I've been running on 126.96.36.1991 forever but I'd rather not roll my dice with the Betas. Thanks!
Remove from Pool vs Drive Usage LimiterI'm replacing a single drive in my pool with a larger one. The drive currently contains duplicated data only, as it was showing some errors. I'm curious, for this use case, is there a difference between these options? Option 1 Click Remove to remove the drive from the pool Wait until that finishes Physically remove the disk Option 2 Under Balancers->Drive Usage Limiter, uncheck both Duplicated and Unduplicated Optionally wait until that finishes Click Remove to remove the drive from the pool Wait until that finishes Physically remove the disk
