It says "Waiting to scan (bus saturated)" , or "bus busy" or the like?

 

If so, that's because by default, we only scan one drive on the same bus, to prevent flooding the connection and impacting performance.

 

If you wish to allow scanner to scan more than one disk on the same controller/bus, there is an advanced option to do so:

 

Do this:

http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Scanner_Advanced_Settings

 

Find the "Scanner" section, and set "ScanMaximumConcurrent" to higher than "1" (or set to 0 to scan all disks).

Then, under the Throttling tab, make sure that you have unchecked the "Do not interfere with other disks on the same controller" option.

 

Restart the system (or restart the StableBit Scanner Service), and it should scan both disks in the enclosure at the same time.

As far as I remember it was just "Waitint to scan" nothing more. Maybe there was a tool tip?

In the GUI there is a scanner setting: "Don't interfere with other disks on the same controller". This was unchecked. What is the difference to ScanMaximumConcurrent?

the Throttling setting is for any disk activity (scanning or normal access).

The "ScanMaximumConcurrent" setting limits how many disks can be scanned on the same controller. The default is 1, to eliminating any possible performance issues with the controller.

 

 

If it was just "Waiting to scan", and the other disk was scanning, then it was because the "limit" is set to 1, and a disk is already scanning.
