Recovered data from missing drive using Snapraid, now the data is marked as "Other" in Drivepool

Question

I had a drive go bad, so I pulled it and replaced it.  I removed the bad drive and added the new drive back to drive pool so it would create a .PoolPart folder, then used SnapRaid to recover the data on that drive.

 

It all worked fine.  No data loss.

 

But now, all the used space on the newly-replaced drive is marked as "other" data is DrivePool.  Everything on the old drives is still marked a Unduplicated (I don't enable any data duplication).

 

Is this a problem or should I just ignore it?  

 

Thanks.

I may be wrong but I think you just need to re-measure the pool.

 

I recently manually added some files to the hidden pool folder & they showed up as other until I re-measured the pool.

This would be normal, as StableBit DrivePool isn't "aware" of the data (or the drive really), as the data was not previous measured (at least not on that disk), and it wasn't added via the driver (pool). 

 

Remeasuring will usually fix this sort of issue.
