Upgraded from 1.x to 2.x, some folders are not in pool

Question

Hello all,

 

This all stems from having issues with the background service not running suddenly in 1.x on a WHS2011 install.  I couldn't get drivepool to run and all of the pooled folders were showing up empty.  I saw that there was a new 2.x version when I went to download an update hoping that would solve my problem.  Anyway, I went ahead and removed 1.x and installed the new 2.x.  Drivepool is now working but I have a few folders that aren't in the pool and are empty.  Drivepool is still "checking" @ 16.3% so could it be something with that?  I find it unlikely though since other folders are showing correctly. 

 

Under server folders, the ones that are filled with data are correctly showing under the pool drive "I", whereas the ones that aren't working are under "K".  However, "K" is actually one of the actual drives mapping designation and is being shown as a part of pool "I". 

 

Hopefully this all makes sense and there's is an easy fix.  There are some screen shots attached for reference.

 

Thanks!

Oh and I just remembered that when I was having problems with 1.x, I tried to do the "missing folders" function (didn't work).  I can't remember which ones I did it to but could this be a possibility why they aren't in the 2.x pool?  Hopefully, doing that didn't royally screw me over.

In another turn of events, I was looking under the pool options at the folder duplication.  It seems that there are "x2" (I assume this means duplication) for some of the folders that are showing up empty as described above. There is definitely data within those folders.  Is there a way to re-path them to look at the correct location?

Do you mean that some of the shared folders are not in I;\, the pooled drive at all? That they're missing from that drive completely?

 

And from the looks of it, they may be residing on the K:\ drive instead. It looks like you may be able to use the dashboard to just move the folders back into the pool.

 

However, if those folders are empty, and the actual full folders are still in the pool, try using the WSS Troubleshooter. It should force the WHS dashboard to use the DrivePool folders for the shared folder.

And yes, the x2 means that the folders are duplicated (just x2 though)
