  1. Haven't seen any subjects on this... Is there a plan or any way to get deduplication for CloudDrive? Considering CloudDrive can be nested with DrivePool I'm assuming it's just a way to emulate a block device on various cloud providers, and with that I should be able to do dedupe effective as long as it's inline dedupe (Windows scheduled dedupe doesn't really help save me space being as it's already allocated on Google Storage and there is no way to "free" it as far as I can tell, plus Windows dedupe takes a massive performance hit). If it would work: is there any plans for CloudDrive to support this natively? If not, does anyone have recommended tools to provide inline dedupe for Windows on top of CloudDrive?
  2. Hello! I'm fairly new to StableBit, but liking the setup so far! I've got a few pools for various resources in my server. In case it's important, here's a quick idea of what I've got running: Dell R730 running Windows Server 2019 Datacenter, connected to a 24 disk shelf via SAS. Each drive shows up individually, so I've used DrivePool to create larger buckets for my data. I'd like to have them redundant against a single drive failure, but I know that means duplicating everything. I will eventually have a pool dedicated to my VMs, and VMs deduplicate very well since each one requires essentially a copy of the base data, and while I will have backups of this data, I'd still like to have a quicker recovery from a drive failure in case that does happen so they'd also be duplicated... (Scanner currently tells me one of my disks is throwing a SMART error, but i don't know how bad it is... I'd like to run it into the ground before replacing it to save money on purchasing new hardware before it's actually dead...) So, I know deduplication isn't supported against the pool itself, but I was curious if people have deduplicated the physical disks, and if windows dedupe sees the pool data and tries to deduplicate it? I noticed this thread, unfortunately it's locked for further comments as it's fairly old, was talking about deduplicating the drives that a pool uses, but I don't know if they meant the files that weren't part of a pool, or if they were talking about the files from the pool. If possible, I'd love to hear an official answer, since I'd rather not run this in an unsupported way, but I'm really hoping there's a way to deduplicate some of these files before I run myself out of space... Thanks for any info that you can provide!
  3. Hi I' use the MS deduplication and DrivePool both since the beginning. I never had any major problem with them, aside some calculation glitches with older DP releases. Now I'm in troubles. The deduplication of Windows has changed a bit since the build 16299 or so. A disk previously deduplicated with Win10 or Win server 2016, after being touched by a recent W10/Server 1803/1809/Server 2019, will be silently upgraded and the deduped files become inaccessible by older incarnations. So downgrade/dual boot is not an option. DrivePool (I tested even the latest beta) will fight with the dedup filter and while DP itself still works, the deduplication does not. Before you ask, yes the option to skip the FS filter is correctly set, as usual, in my case This is what I get from powershell with a simple Get-dedupstatus (after DP installation and a reboot) This Is what I see in the deduplication section of event log Sorry messages are in Italian but I think are still pretty clear. So please fix DP asap to not ruin the good reputation of your product (and also to make my life easier ) P.S. FYI Drive Bender 2800 has the exact same behavior
  4. The only topics I've seen on this are a little old. It seems to me that it might work to enable Server's Data Deduplication tasks against the raw disk volumes instead of the main drivepool partition? does this sound like it would work? Thanks! -everyonce
  5. I was reading the changlog and I read; * [issue #13517] When the "dedup" file system filter is installed, "Bypass file system filters" is overridden and disabled. This allows pooled drives that are utilizing data deduplication to work correctly with StableBit DrivePool. Is this for the Windows Server 2012r2 Data Deduplication Service? It's been a while and I've been using mhddfs and I was looking into swapping my server back to Windows for ADDC, and some other stuff that is easier to do in windows. Right now I do a hardlink of my Finished folder to another folder called Sort. I then move all the Finished data to Deletable. I can then sort the files in Sort into other directories without issues caused by renaming. This lets me seed to 2.0 in peace without space waist. I was wondering how DP would handle this. So how does DP handle hardlinks right now? Before it gets asked, I'm using Snapraid instead of DP's duplication system. A 2-disk parity saves a lot of space. If I can hardlink and/or use Deduplication that would further save space.
  6. Anyone here tried this, http://www.quantum.com/products/disk-basedbackup/dxiv1000/index.aspx, could it be used with Drivepool?

    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
