  1. Hi, I know it's been asked before but I'm still wondering if we can expect NVMe "smart" support in the future for these drives. In Direct I/O everything is a red cross except the "SSD" part with every option, combination of options and specific methods. The devices in question are listed as "Disk # - NVMe Samsung SSD 960 SCSI Disk Device" Using Scanner version and Samsung NVMe Controller driver. CrystalDiskInfo and some other software can get the data.
  2. I have an Icy Box IB-1816M-C31 USB 3.1 Gen 2 enclosure containing a 512GB Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD, for which Scanner cannot read the SMART data. This enclosure uses a JMicron JMS583 USB-NVMe bridge, and shows up as a UASP device using the ASUS UAS Storage Driver (removing this driver and using the default driver, which takes it out of UASP mode, doesn't change anything). CystalDiskInfo is able to read the SMART data, as is smartctl when run with the -d sntjmicron option to correctly identify the USB device. -d sntjmicronC:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin>smartctl -a -d sntjmicron
  3. Based on the feedback from the community, here is how to get your ESXi Host to pass on SMART data for Scanner in your guest VMs. All you need to do is the following and then any disk (not USB) you plugin in thereafter will be available for RDM: In the ESXi Console window, highlight your server Go to the Configuration tab Under Software, click Advanced Settings Click RdmFilter Uncheck the box for RdmFilter.HbaIsShared Click OK Used the Advanced Settings for StableBit Scanner to enable "UnsafeDirectIo" to get the SMART data from the virtual controller: http://wiki.covecube.com/Stable
  4. Hey, I recently bought my first USB 3.0 enclosure for my old HDD and noticed with the Scanner running on my HTPC (Win 7 x64) on the last stable version and the newest beta 3103 (with no WMI and no unsafe IO) that the SMART attributes could not be read: According to the LOG, I think it somehow chooses to use the ScsiPassthroughJmicron method: Scanner.Service.exe Information 0 [Disks] Creating disk... 2018-04-14 09:25:14Z 66476300502 Scanner.Service.exe Information 0 [DiskInfo] Opening ATA pass-through... 2018-04-14 09:25:14Z 66476301483 Scanner.Service.exe Information
  5. Hello everyone! Another happy user of Drivepool with a question regarding NTFS compression and file evacuation. A few days ago I started having reallocated sectors counters on one drive. Stablebit scanner ordered drivepool to evacuate all the files, but there was not enough space so some of them remained. I bought another drive, which I added to the pool, and tried to remove the existing one, getting an "Access is Denied" error. Afterwards, I tried to force evacuation of files from the damaged drive using the appropriate option in the Stablebit scanner. This triggered a rebalance opera
  6. So I just installed the Scanner after using Drivepool for about 15 days now, however, with both of my disks I get "The on-disk SMART check is not accessible on any of your disks". Also, this http://prntscr.com/7a7lgz. However, smartctl seems to give me SMART data. Any ideas on how to fix? I'm currently using a HP Proliant Gen8 Microserver. I tried unsafe DirectIO but that did not seem to work. Any help would be much appreciated
  7. I was wondering if this is a blip or not, the drives are installed in my server 2012 r2 essentials and have never given me any issues , I am not 100% sure but i am guessing it is to do with the samsung magician software as i had previously had rapid mode enabled. however it appears to be glitchy with the new version on this system. I am guessing that this would explain the 26% . Or should i actually be worried at this point in time? Server motherboard is supermicro X10sat Chipset Intel® C226 Express PCH SATA SATA3 via PCH w/ RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 S
  8. Interesting article from backBlaze on SMART info Not definitive but interesting Wish they would learn how to present stats and % properly as it makes it difficult to figure out what the numbers mean! https://www.backblaze.com/blog/what-smart-stats-indicate-hard-drive-failures/
  9. Building a new server, primarily for media serving, and having some problems getting Scanner to read S.M.A.R.T data Current configuration: Asrock Z97 board with Pentium G3258 (at stock speed) running Win 7 Pro 2 x Highpoint RocketRaid 644L Controllers (I know these are the problem!) 2 x External 4-bay Enclosures 4 x Samsung 500GB in one enclosure - Attached to 1st RR card 1 x Seagate 8TB in the other - Attached to 2nd RR card Latest Highpoint Driver Latest Highpoint Bios The RR cards don't play nicely together if you install more than one, and the advice from Highpoint is to dis
  10. My pool consists of four, green WD 2G hard drives, and in general, I remove old drives after 2-3 years, even if they're still indicating healthy. But I'm starting to not trust Scanner's AGE report any longer. In the attachment, the two bottom drives (the ones ending in -00DC0B0) were installed at the *exact* same time. Now scanner is reporting they were replaced ~4 months apart. The top two drives (ending in -19D8PB0 and -00D8PB0) were installed almost a year apart, yet scanner reports *exactly* a three hour difference. What am I doing wrong? Should I stop trusting Scanner's age information?
  11. I have no SMART data for drives connected to my Rocket Raid 2320. All other drives show SMART fine. Other drive analyst software shows the SMART data OK and I have changed the settings file for UnsafeDirectIO to True. (is there a way to know this stuck?) Any ideas ?

    Migrating to New HD

    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. Hey, I have the Stablebit Scanner for over a year and I really like it . Last week I changed my backup HDD to a bigger size when I noticed a strange bug. The HDD is a Samsung Spinpoint M8 1TB and it has a standby time of a few seconds (when I check "automatic stanby" in the disk control menu). The normal standy timer seams to have no effect. Although I checked "Do not query if the disk has spun down", I heard the starting of the HDD motor every minute! The Power option only changes between "Standby" and "Active" when I enable "Query power mode directly from disk", but then there is
  14. Hello. I have DrivePool working great on my server and am in the process of getting Scanner configured. After the initial installation all my drives are seen by Scanner, but I'm not getting the SMART info to pass through. Here is my setup: 3 local drives (Sata) (SMART info is showing on each) 24 local drives connected to an Areca ARC-1680ix-24 controller with BIOS 1.51. 38 external drives connected from 2 systems, each with an HP SAS expander connected to a 2nd local Areca ARC-1680ix-16 controller with BIOS 1.51 Both controllers are set to JBOD and both have the SMART polling cu

    WHS2011 Alert

    I am getting an alert on my WHS2011 dashboard saying "a disk is suspect". It says to open the dashboard and open stablebit scanner and select the overheating disc. None of the disks show any SMART or overheating error. How can I determine what is causing the alert.
  16. Hi Guys, on and off over the last couple of months I have been getting sporadic emails from my server telling me that one of my disks is about to fail: StableBit Scanner S.M.A.R.T. Failure on 'SERVER' One or more disks are expected to fail within 24 hours: WDC WD20EFRX-68AX9N0 ATA DeviceYou are receiving this message because you have set up email notifications to be sent to this address from the StableBit Scanner. When I go to the Stablebit scanner tab in my WHS2011 it doesn't show any warnings and all drives check out. I have even ran a full disk surface check in the past and the ema
  17. Hi, I am getting conflicting SMART warnings on one drive in a WHS2011. When I check the drive everything is ok, but 15 minutes later a warning pops up. The drive isn't that old and CHKDSK shows no problems. I am using Scanner version Any advice would be appreciated... Thanks.
