DrivePool keeps "checking"

Question

I'm using DP on a new Windows 2012 R2 Essentials install.

 

My DP is 2.1.1.561 which, I believe, is the latest official release.

 

I've noticed that every time I go into the Dashboard it says that DrivePool is "checking". These checks take a long time and appear to use a fair bit of disk throughput to complete so I'm wondering why they a happening all the time.

 

My previous install (I just rebuilt the OS) didn't seem to do this although maybe I missed it.

 

Any suggestions?

That's definitely not normal.

 

Do you have any flaky disks in the system? 

If you're not sure, you may be able to check the Event Viewer (run "eventvwr.msc"). Check the "System" section under "Windows Logs" and see if you have a lot of disk, or controller errors.  if you do, it may be this that is causing the constant checking, as this can happen when a disk goes missing and returns. 

 

 

Also, try resetting the settings and see if that helps:

Or try upgrading to the public beta build (as there are a lot of fixes in it, especially in regards to measuring and the like).

I keep,getting reports that new drives are being added to the server. These appear to be Hyper-V images that are being mounted so server backup can back them up.

 

Would adding these drives to the system (and not the pool) cause a recheck?

 

I'll try some upgrades.

I don't think so.

 

If you're backing up the pool drives, then yes, this *could* trigger that behavior. But aside from that, no, it shouldn't. 

 

If you know when this is being triggered, and the above didn't help, then could you do this:
