Ok, I'm a bit of an idiot, and I have had a total drive failure - how can i tell what was on the failed drive?



So yea, as per the title, one of my drives has totally failed on an aging system... Its mostly stupidity on my part, as i did see some warning signs, but i wasnt able to get around to addressing them in time before the drive went kaput.

I had a fairly small pool, only 3x3TB drives, and one of the drives is now completely unreadable by windows :(

For the most part, everything on the failed drive is replaceable, so its not the end of the world - but what i'm hoping to be able to find out is what folders/files in the pool were residing on the now failed drive

I had a quick search on these forums, and most of the suggestions seem to rely on all the drives being readable, and then you can run script that tells you which files/folders live where.. but sadly its too late for that

I'm just hoping theres some kind of log file or some such that can tell me which folders in the pool may have had stuff on the dead drive, and i can then work on restoring them

Thanks in advance 🙏

DrivePool keeps rolling logs in "C:\ProgramData\StableBit DrivePool\Service\Logs\" but the only reason any files/folders might appear therein would be if DrivePool encountered an error accessing them (which is not necessarily the same as an error accessing a drive that contained files/folders) and then perhaps only if you had enabled Troubleshooting -> Enable File System Logging from the GUI (which is not recommended for normal use); I'm not certain of the specifics there.
