  1. Hi, running Drivepool and Scanner on Windows 2012R2 with 4 * 3TB drives. Added the disks to a pool and set for (2 *) duplication. There is currently no other data stored on any of the disks. I was adding VHDX files to my Virtual Machines yesterday, storing them on the Drivepool drive, and noticed that as I was adding them the value of “Other” was going up under the Drivepool interface. Looking in My Computer I have used about 0.4 TB of space on each of the disks, so in total 1.60TB of data. Looking at the Pool disk in My computer shows I have about 1.59 TB of data on it (so those 2 figures just about match). Also a DIR /s *.* of the Drivepool drive shows a total of 812GB if data, so ½ of what’s shows above, so that all matches. However looking in the Drivepool interface, I see that it says: Duplicated 1.33TB Other 279GB (I have run Re-measure a few times to be sure) which in total equals 1.6TB. I understand that “Other” includes non pooled data on the disk (which I have none of), and stuff such as metadata and “slack space”, but 279GB is quite a high figure, and quite close to the total size of the VHD(X) files on the Drivepool at about 234GB. I think the VHD(X) files are however being duplicated, as I have a VMBackup folder with 4 VHDX files in it, and under the pool folder on E: & F: I can see 2 of the files on each of the disks, and under the pool folder on G: & H: I can see the other 2 files. So it seems they are being duplicated, but showing up in the interface as Other. Any thoughts.
  2. Hello all, Drivepool user here, just trying from yesterday and loving it! But i've found a problem that's a deal breaker for me: i'm using Hyper-V on Server 2012 R2; if i create a VHD on the volume that is created by drivepool i get this same error no matter i do. Has anybody found this error and has a solution for it? Thanks all.

    Server 2012 Questions

    Hi, I have some Questions about using Drivepool with server 2012. i'd like to duplicate a lot of files and some Hyper-V VHDs. The files are no Problem, but what can i suppose on VHDs? Can i store vhds on my pool without worrying about the data, which is written in a vm? One vhd can get a size of 500Gb or more. What happens when i enable the automatic balancing with the vhds? Do they get balanced without shutting down the vms? Can i exclude the vms/vhds from the balancing process? What happens when i remove one disk from the pool? What happens, when i create a vhd which is greater then the free space of the volume on which it is stored? Can i use the integrated per-volume-deduplication feature of Server 2012 to reduce the data, which is stored on one Volume? Can Drivepool still read the deduplicated files? Thanks for the answers best reagrds
