Hi, I am looking for at solution to encrypt my storage drives that I am using for drivepool. How is the easiest way to do this? I have read this forum through over and over again, but I cannot seem to find a newer guide to how to setup bitlocker (I would rather use something like disktryptor instead but if bitlocker is the only encryption software supported, I can live with that). Does anyone know how to encrypt the disks I'm using for my drivepool storage? I don't have a TPM-module so I'll need to use a USB drive. Also, I am not going to encrypt my system drive, so how do I manually start drivepool (I don't have a problem manually activate things at each startup as my server is seldom restarted). Any help would be much appreciated! /MaxIImus
Hi, I am trying to pool 2 x 1.5TB drives into a single 2.xTB partition on Windows 7. I have converted the two disks to GPT disks for starters (to get around the 2TB limit the resultant DrivePool drive will be greater than). I then formatted the two disks as NTFS partitions and then added them to a new pool in DrivePool and I get a 2.72TB partition like I want (which I alloated to Z:). FYI both disks are plugged into a USB dual-bay hard drive dock (so dynamic volumes aren’t an option for me as I’m sure many would know). I already use TrueCrypt, however I cannot get the DrivePool-created drive (Z:) to be encrypted in TrueCrypt. I have tried the following: 1) Created the DrivePool as drive Z:. It is mounted in the o/s like a normal drive. In TrueCrypt: 2) Selected "Tools" -> "Volume creation wizard" 3) "Encrypt a non-system partition drive" 4) "Standard TrueCrypt volume" 5) "Select device" -> "Z:" 6) "Encrypt partition in place", click "next" and get "Incorrect function" dialog, I click "OK", then I receive an error about the disk being damaged: http://stablebit.com/Content/UploadedAssets/Images/f314147d-53eb-435c-92a5-6a2b464372c0.jpg I click "OK" and another error about not being able to access the volume appears: http://stablebit.com/Content/UploadedAssets/Images/bbb6614c-51f8-4602-be3f-6ccf15f018b7.jpg So, instead of “Encrypt partition in place”, I chose “Create encrypted volume and format it”, “Aes” (default), default size, enter password, “Yes” to files over 4gb (Default=no), shows it’s selected “NTFS”, move the mouse around, click “Format”, click ”Yes” to proceed, a second or two later I get an error telling me it can't dismount the partition: http://stablebit.com/Content/UploadedAssets/Images/5b7ff999-63e0-4f9f-97fe-b16f2c53f41b.jpg I click “OK and then I receive and I get a final error saying it finally failed to create a volume: http://stablebit.com/Content/UploadedAssets/Images/76ec2bb0-3384-450b-85a2-bec383328970.jpg And I click “Cancel” to abort and that's where I am at. Can anyone tell me what needs to be done to get the encryption working? Thanks for any assistance anyone can offer.
