How to prioritize scanner


I am using drivepool and scanner on 2 computers.

The main one is running 16 hours a day, then goes to sleep automatically at night.

The backup computer is only running a couple of hours per week; I am lead to believe it is insufficient running time to get the drives scanned.

What settings can I change so Scanner can perform its scan much faster ?

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to get that to happen.  The scanning is a slow process that can take roughly 5 hours per TB.  

That said, there are a few things that may help.  Try disabling the throttling settings.:


Also, there is an advanced setting that will allow StableBit Scanner to scan multiple drives on the same controller at the same time.


It's the "maximum concurrent" setting. Try setting that to 0.
