  1. (I am sure I saw the answer to this but I can't find it, so apologies if this is answered already) Hi there, I have a pool with 4x2TB spinning disks and 2x1TB SSDs, with about 3TB free. The pool is only for large (legal!) media files and is now pretty much read-only. Should there be any new writes I would like them to land on the SSDs first but I _don't_ want the SSDs to be completely evacuated. Instead, I want to keep a certain % of the SSDs free, but the rest of the space should be considered fine for long term file storage. Using the SSD plugin gives me the "write first to SS
  2. 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 2.5.4.3216 and Samsung NVMe Controller 3.0.0.1802 driver. CrystalDiskInfo and some other software can get the data.
  3. I run windows server 2016 with 10 hdds and 4 small SSDs - 15TB total usable DP pool with 2x3TB hdds parity using snapraid. The really stupid thing is, I’m only sitting on 2tb of data. I plan on repurposing the drives into an old Synology NAS and keep it as an off-site backup. So, I’m just wandering if anyone has done the following and can give me advice: Create 2x Raid 0 between 2x 1TB SSDs = 4TB in total between 4 drives using stablebit drivepool (will only be mirroring a couple of directories) and then have 2x 3TB parity drives with snapraid. Goals: 1. Reduce idle wa
  4. ok so I now have a 10gb network and I can saturate the setup I have... I had a pool with 3x 2tb and 2x 4tb - sata drives. All WD Blacks... I added an ssd cache and installed the optimizer and I guess it works for copying files TO the pool. However I do a lot of retrievals and just ordered 2x 6-2.5 hot swap bays. first setup I bought didn't like and returning.. second one will be here in 4 days... so I have some time. new pool will be 12x 500gb crucial ssd - Pool 1 (6tb) 2x 4tb and 2x 2tb (for now) wd black and 500gb ssd optimizer - pool 2 (12tb) my thinking is...
  5. Hi Guys, this week i got my first damage error via launchpad notification from my system SSD (Kingston 60GB). There were not much free space on it since months, so i was planning to swap it with a bigger one (WD 240GB) in any case. After file scan there was only one file damaged, which was not important, so i deleted it, run chkdsk /f on it and clone the whole partitions to a newer bigger SSD. Actually everything is working fine but the damage message is still present in launchpad's notification window and the old kingston drive is unplugged lying in the cubboard. I know from o
  6. Hello! I am in the midst of moving server and I have configured my new target according to attached image. The settings are quite clear an intuitive. My intentions are to fill up the drive sequencially, not in parallel (parralellelly? ). However, as the picture shows the drives are filling in paralell. It feels like the system is putting the files on whichever drive has the most absolute free space. There are no strange file placement rules in place. Any help is much appreciated! UPDATE I activated my license, specified another drive as SSD and rebo
  7. I have DP setup with 8 HDDs and one SSD. The SSD is configured to be the first location for all files and seems to work as such. The issue I am seeing is that as part of the balancing, it competely fills the SSD, and then offloads them them onto one of the drives. One day I will check it and the SSD will be full, the next it will be empty. This has been going on for weeks (months?), and seems very inefficient (in terms of power and wear). Just to be sure I looked at the content of the SSD (S:\) and the files are old ones, not any that would have been newly copied to the SSD (which sh
  8. I'm not sure if this belongs in General or Nuts and Bolts but here goes. Basic scenario is I have 4 "drives." 1.) Operating system SSD (not part of the pool.) 2.) SSD landing zone (SSD-optimizer places all new files here for speed.) 3.) HDD 'scratch disk' (folder placement rules place my "temp folder here" when the SSD is emptied in order to hide it from SnapRAID) 4.) Archival drives (folder placement rules migrate my "archival" folders here from either the SSD or scratch disk. This is what SnapRAID sees.) The issue I'm having is that when balancing occurs, files
  9. 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
  10. I'm using Stablebit Drivepool 64 (non-beta) on Win 64 with the SSD optimizer. (Great product by the way!) I've got a single SSD for the optimizer and 5 archive drives. I'm running into an issue where files copied into the pool are properly being written to the SSD but they are marked as grey "Other" files. (Note - these files are copied into the pool, not directly onto the SSD.) Because these are other files, the automatic balance doesn't trigger and they just sit on the SSD. A manual remeasure will properly turns these grey "Other" files on the SSD into light blue unduplicated files a
  11. My original plans for a new disk layout involved using tiered storage spaces to get both read and write acceleration out of a pair of SSDs against a larger rust-based store (a la my ZFS fileserver). This plan was scuppered when I discovered that Win8 Does Not Do tiered storage and I'd need to run a pair of Server 2012R2 instances on my dual-boot development and gaming machine instead. I'm currently using DrivePool with the SSD Optimiser plugin to great effect and enjoying the 500MB/sec burst write speeds to a 3TB mirrored pool... but although read striping on rust is nice it doesn't yield
  12. I'd like to pool 1 SSD and 1 HDD and with pool duplication [a] and have the files written & read from the SSD and then balanced to the HDD with the files remaining on the SSD (for the purpose of [a] and ). The SDD Optimizer balancing plug-in seems to require the files be removed from the SSD, which seems to prevent [a] and (given only 1 HDD). Can the above be accomplished using DrivePool? (without 3rd party tools) Thanks, Tom
  13. I set aside 2 SSDs in a RAID0 configuration for my 80TB pool. I moved the SSD Balancer to the top. My past experience and understanding is that it acts as the landing zone for new files but once the activity stops (i.e. over night), it should move those files to the archive drives. My concern is that the RAID0 is not safe and I don't want to lose files located on it when it breaks to find out that they didn't move to the archives. Any thoughts?
  14. I have an 80GB SSD and 8 1.5TB drives in my pool. The SSD is also my OS drive so I want to just use it for initial writes, but I expect DrivePool to balance the pool out by eventually moving the files to two of the spinners. I only have about 20GB free on the SSD normally which puts it right at the 72% limit that I have on the drive for new file placement. The problem is that a few older files have one of their copies sitting on the SSD taking up space so DP thinks that there is no room to put new files on the SSD. The other drives are all set to 0% for new file placement, but when I move new
  15. As the Boot drive of my WHS2011 server is slowly dying, I want to replace it by an SSD to gain some speed. Is it possible to use the remaining part of the SSD (all the space excluding the C:) as a feeder disk? (e.g. just the D: partition)
  16. Hi all, I've been trying out the Archive Optimizer on my Drive Pool installation. I find that after a couple of hours the Feeder disk (SSD) becomes full. The pool remains in a 100% healthy state even though the bar graph beside the Feeder disk indicates that it has exceeded the limit. I guess the first thing is understanding what I expected the Archive Optimizer to do and if this actually aligns with its implementation. I would have expected that with Balancing settings configured to allow for immediate balancing, any data on the SSD Feeder disk would be scheduled for archive to t
