  1. Hey Guys - I've used Stablebit DrivePool and Scanner for at least a couple of years now and love it - thanks for the great work. I do, however, have one issue that I haven't ever gotten resolved... Issue: Disappearing / Reappearing Folders I've had this issue for well over a year now and have been using a workaround which will no longer work due to new scripting I'm putting in soon. I have a fairly large pool (stats below) which mostly contains media files. The issue I'm experiencing is only in one folder / path and it happens to be one which has the most folders within its root coming out to about ~3,500. Sometimes (cannot reproduce at will) when I or a script copies a new folder into this path, it does not appear in Windows Explorer or when I list directories within the command prompt. I've found that if I know the name of the folder, I can change directory (cd foldername) from the command prompt and successfully enter it and list files within - but even after doing so it still doesn't appear in Explorer or a directory listing of it's root. The folder will eventually appear as normal, but usually only after 1 sometimes 2 reboots and waiting a bit (waiting for a balance job perhaps?) Before posting, I reviewed the logs, but they make no mention of the folder whatsoever nor any error. Since this started, I've had my scripts put the new folders in a temporary dedicated folder while they are being accessed somewhat frequently, then have a Windows task nightly move all folders older than 7 days to the primary folder (one with the issue) as if they disappear for a while at that point, it's not as big of a deal. I'm on the latest version of DrivePool with a pretty much default configuration except that I use the SSD plugin for new writes. Since this has occurred, I also have performed an OS reinstall which obviously included reinstalling DrivePool then importing the pool, but found the issue remained. Has anyone seen this behavior before and / or have suggestions? Thanks!

  2. Hey Guys - Over the past few years, the size of my pool has grown dramatically in size where I'm getting to the point where upgrading requires going from 4tb disks to 8tb ones instead of adding a new disk. The pool is in my primary PC (specs below) which I use for everything you can imagine including work, gaming, VMs, personal web hosting, scripting, and more. I'd really like to have the pool offloaded from this PC to another device. Unfortunately, I'd probably have to sell my truck to afford an 11 disk NAS or similar enterprise-level device. As I still have another case, I'm instead considering purchasing an inexpensive motherboard, CPU, etc then migrating the pool (disks + RocketRAID card) over to it to build my own dedicated pool device. Given that, I have 2 questions, please: 1. If you had to build a dedicated system like this, what hardware / OS would you use that you would consider the most stable yet still offer same features? 2. Given my pool, what are the minimum specs I would need to do this? I'm not trying to be cheap, but have some slightly older workstations around here and would be great if I could use their guts and possibly do this all for free! Thanks!!!
