My take on the state of DrivePool right now
As of right now, we have M3 out for a while, I think that the basic functions that we've been testing in M1 and M2 are mostly working as expected.
There are still some sporadic issues with moving folders. I think the ultimate solution for this would be to implement transactional NTFS. This would mean that even if you pull the plug during a folder move, everything would go back to the way that it was the next time you boot up. It's a bit of work, but may need to be done.
There are multiple open issues with the newly introduced client computer backups feature. Service startup issues are cropping up in the latest builds related to this. Issues were expected, it's a large leap to put backups on the pool, that's why this feature was held back until now. We have to get through these, it's really the #1
priority for DrivePool right now.
Of course there are other smaller issues too, but those are the two major problems on my mind right now because they have the potential to affect many people.
Thanks everyone for reporting issues. It moves testing along and gives me a better picture of what works and what doesn't.
In other news, the first BETAs of Scanner 2.0 are coming any day now (that's why I was away from the forums for a bit). It will run on the WHS 2011 family of OSes.
After Scanner 2.0 BETA is released, we'll wrap up any remaining issues with DrivePool M3 and move on to M4.
