Version 2 Beta on Windows 8
I'm new to DrivePool and have just installed it with Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. I'm migrating WHS V1 data from the DE Folders using the guide that seems understandable except for a couple of areas the selections don't quite match up with Windows 8, but close enough to get that worked out. The problem I'm having is with the interface and the instructions in the migration guide:
My questions are in Red below each section of the guides instructions. Thanks.
Now that any wayward DE permissions have been (hopefully) dealt with:
* use Explorer to rearrange your folders, files, etc, on the drivepool drive to your liking, e.g. you might want to move everything under \Shares\Videos into \ServerFolders\Videos - and you don't have to keep the Shares folder if it ends up empty - or you can just leave it all as it is if you were happy with how you had your old WHS folders set up
* you'll be warned if you attempt to move, rename or delete a shared folder - HEED THIS WARNING
I see no ability to interact with folders in the Dashboard. How do I do that?
* use the Dashboard to "Add a folder" (NOT "Add a folder to the Pool") so you can "Browse" to the folders you want to share with your network from the drivepool drive I don't see anywhere in the dashboard to add folders. The console has a large pie chart, the ability to add drives to the pool, start duplication, etc, but nowhere do I see the ability to add folders.
* use the Dashboard to enable duplication on the shares that you want to have it
I'm assuming it's all or nothing on the duplication. If you only want some of your data duplicated, what is the best approach?
Thanks very much. I did search the forum, but was unable to answer these questions.
