Unusable for duplication


Hey Guys,


 42.8TB Pool


 Unduplicated: 1.13TB

 Duplicated: 38.1TB

 Other: 14.5GB

 Unusable for Duplication: 4.18TB


 Until this point I thought I understood the unusable space, I added a 5TB drive on Saturday, told it to recalc, and rebalance- and afterwards, unusable ballooned.


 Now this morning, it is telling me that file placement is not optimal, so I have it balancing again now, but that will take some time (I increased priority) but will still take a couple hours minimum. I have no idea if this will help whatsoever.


 Any thoughts on what the issue could be?

No problem, it was a long weekend afterall :)


I can't grab the service logs until morning.


I have noticed as well, that no matter what, the balancing never finishes. It will stop, but always says File Distribution is not optimal.


Attached is the screen shot.

What is the status of this issue?


See this too here on Windows Server R2 Essentials (just moving over from WHS201).


Thanks and have a nice day!



You've said that you've just moved over, from WHS2011.

Depending on exactly how, this may affect the balancing. 


Could you post more details about your config (or images)?
