I went to open Calibre and an error message popped up and said that the calibre library location isn't available. I then noticed that there was no drivepool. I opened Stablebit drivepool and noticed that one disk went bad, but instead of having all of my other 7 disks I don't even have a drivepool. The Stablebit DRivepool program was asking me to start a new drivepool, which should not have happened. I decided to just begin another drivepool, but as I added the disks to the drivepool, none of the folders and files were being shown. The disks look like they were all wiped clean. Windows Disk management reflects the same thing. I would like to recreate my drivepool, but I guess the pool configuration information cannot be located or indexed. Is this fixable? The disks only show a poolpart file and nothing else. I have a very good hard drive restore program, should I just scan each disk and try to recover all of my files. This looks like a nightmare at this point. I did notice that when I discovered I no longer had my files I did notice that the stablebit service was not running. I re-started the service, which still resulted in not being able to see any of my files or folders.
Hi, I am posting here to see if anyone has any similar experiences when trying to upload data to GDrive via Cloud Drive using a similar setup. First, I have two hard drives connected, which are used as my cache disks. Not sure if the size matters, but one is 1 TB and the other is 1.5 TB. They were created about 1 year ago using the default allocation sizes, so the maximum each cloud drive can be is 32 TB each. I also use DrivePool to pool the Cloud Drives created on GDrive into one combined 64 TB drive. This is on an I5 2600k 3.6 Ghz with 16 GB ram on a Windows 10 Home OS. I have been having trouble recently while trying to upload from the local disks in that it seems that the PC needs to have the user logged in and active in order to upload anything. This isn't ideal because while I have a "decent" connection at 1 Gbps down, I only have 50 Mbps upload. I can usually achieve close to 50 Mbps during non-peak times, but throughout the day / busy hours, I usually max out around 30 - 35 Mbps. For this reason (and others), I typically try to let any data upload overnight while I'm sleeping. However, recently as in the last 3 to 4 weeks or so, I've noticed that even though my connection appears to be uploading throughout the night, the "To Upload" figure remains pretty close to what it was prior to going to sleep. For example, last night it said I had 199 GB left to upload to the cloud. I left my computer unattended uploading for 12+ hours (combined sleep and running errands throughout today) and when I checked just now, it says there is 184 GB left to upload. It seems kind of odd that I would have only uploaded around 15 GB in over 12 hours. My connection was steady throughout the night and no errors reported by Cloud Drive. Something may be related is that prior to going to sleep, I had cleared cache on the drive and the "To Upload" data (199 GB) and "Local" data (201 GB) were very close, around 2 GB difference. Upon returning to my computer, as mentioned the to upload was 184 GB, but my local was now at 534 GB. It almost seems as if the difference between 534 GB and 201 GB is what my connection should have uploaded during the 12 hrs, but for some reason it did not happen. This is not the first time something like this has happened either, it seems much more prevalent over the last several weeks, but I am not 100% sure when this behavior started. At first, I thought I was doing something wrong somehow, which still might be true. However, I think I found the pattern of this potential issue. It seems that when I "lock" my computer and am away from it, the issue described where my connection uploads, but doesn't actually upload much data will occur. It seems like this issue does NOT occur if I log on to the PC and just leave it unlocked and "active". I am doing a test now to see if this is true. To be clear, I am NOT logging the user out of Windows prior to letting it try to upload. I am simply locking the computer so it prompts for a password when someone tries to use it. I am also aware of the 750 GB max upload to GDrive per 24 hours. I don't think my upload speed is fast enough for that to come into play, but I have also tried waiting a few days by pausing the upload and the same thing would happen. Has anyone experienced anything remotely similar to this? If so, is there anything that can be done? I don't understand why it would upload while I am active on the PC, but not upload while its locked. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Hello everyone: Not sure if this is the correct Forum for this, but I just wanted to let you all know about what I consider to be a fantastic deal on some 4TB Drives at Newegg. Drashna, you can move it if you need to. To save everyone’s time, I’ll just give you the stats: · Brand: Toshiba · Model: MD04ACA400 (Bare Drive) · Capacity: 4TB · Size: 3.5” · Speed: 7200RPM · Connection: SATA 6.0Gb/s · Cache: 128MB · Warranty: 5-Years from Toshiba · Seller: Newegg · Item Number: N82E16822149644 (Newegg) · Shipping: Free, 3-Day Fed-Ex · Price: $93.49 (That’s $23.37 per TB, Delivered!) IMPORTANT: When you do a Search for the drive on Newegg’s site, do so using only the Newegg Item Number. The drive does not come up with an ordinary search, but the same model from GoHardDrive.com DOES come up for $93.00 or so with a 3-year warranty. If you want, you can just try this direct link to the Newegg offering: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822149644 Newegg says they are discounting the drive from $205.99 (55%). I found the Newegg offering quite by chance after I had to return BOTH the drives I purchased from GoHardDrive.com due to numerous bad sectors right out of the package. ALSO, the GoHardDrive units have Manufacturing dates 18-24 Months ago and GoHardDrive is providing the warranty themselves. The Newegg drives I purchased were made in Feb, 2018. I just finished running them through extensive testing and they are both in Perfect 100% Health with no errors at all. I have verified the 5-Year warranty by Serial Number directly on Toshiba’s website. Here’s the link for that (not easy to find): https://myapps.taec.toshiba.com/myapps/admin/jsp/webrma/addRequest1NoLogin.jsp?Action=NEW These seem to be good quality drives. When I bought them, Newegg was advertising them as Enterprise Drives. I already knew they weren’t however and I bought them anyway. 5-Years is a SUPERB Warranty! Now in the new listing, they dropped “Enterprise” and just say “Good for Servers”. Hope I’m not wasting your time. I did do a search on the Forum to make sure no one had already said something and I didn’t see anything. If you’re interested, don’t dally on it. Enough people already do know about them that they are selling like crazy. Newegg told me they are already on their second order of 10,000 drives! Hope this helps someone, GDog
If I have a small-ish hard drive, say around 120GB, really just for my OS and a couple of apps, can I use StableBit CloudDrive to create a really large, say 2-4TB, cloud drive, even though my physical hard drive is much less in size? In other words I believe, if I understand your features correctly, that I can create a very large CloudDrive and not need that same amount in physical storage....is that right? And if so, is there some sort of relationship between the cloud drive size that the physical hard drive StableBit is running on for caching purposes - like for every 1TB, best practice is to have 50GB in physical cache space? Is there a user manual online - I could not find one??? Thanks!
