  • also, drivepool in my experience will not automatically reconnect your shares with our running the StableBit DrivePool Utilities, found here. http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Troubleshooting.   so going back to your steps, Install whs 20…
  • thanks Shane, I'm training my wife to deal with the duplication changes, I'll see if it shows up in the next rev or two of the WHS version, I like the dashboard integration, I'll give it some time, I'm very patient, 
  • well, I changed my duplication settings to later, while its not ideal for both pools, just needed to test my setup,  I'm now able to use the two slow a$$ drives as intended (essentially a raid 1 with delay for new data),  for duplicated data, I am n…
  • after you push your drive pool letter down a few notches, you might want to look into mounting your data drives as NTFS Folders, then you don't have to worry about windows hijacking your alpha characters. 
  • That's good to know.
  • Hi, I installed DrivePool and all was well. I then needed to move my data drives to another server. I used the tool provided to recreate the shares and the tool did it well. But I discovered I have permissions problems. Anyone can access any folder …
  • have you tried this tool?  changing your drive letter is similar to an OS reinstall,  http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Utilities. 
  • so if i have 3 drives and removed two drives out of the pool does this mean cos i only have one drive the data will not have duplication?How do i remove 2 drives out of the 3 making sure it is not duplicated and i dont lose any data?Thanks Backup, B…
  • the release notes for 1.2.1.7123 list the following Retired DrivePool's folder size tracking. Folder sizes are now all reported using Windows Search. Folder sizes are not used by DrivePool for anything internally, they are only reported to the user,…
  • Depending on your backup program, I'm not using the built in windows backup for this, but you would only need to back up the shares themselves, no need to worry where the data is actually stored on your server.  You could also use a file sync progra…
  • shane, does it really matter what the drive letters are or even if drive letters are assigned?  Would it be simple enough to uninstall drive pool, reinstall and then use the Wss.Troubleshoot_1.0.0.159.exe utility to reconnect the shares to the pool.…
  • yep, I'm also running perfect disk, I'll turn off the auto schedule, and do some more looking around, thanks for confirming DP is not the issue. 
  • this post got me to thinking about the drive power states, while I can confirm that I have the drives set to turn off after 30m under the power management options, they don't spin down, ever, I've also tried setting up power managemane in scanner, b…
  • Thanks, that worked out nicely.
  • Thanks for the information,I have an N40L collecting dust that I'll setup as a test server, but I need to locate some old drives to play around with.  From what I can tell, changing my current drives to NTFS folders will require that I create new …
  • They work well together as saitoh183 says. Couple of tips; Mount the drives as NTFS folders so they dont appear in Explorer. (unless you like drive letters for all drives)If a drive fails and you need to recover using flexraid, simply uninstall dri…
  • Yes, it's for you, you setup it and you never look back, there's low activity on this forum for a reason, while there are a few that run into issues, but for the most part, there's minium work required after you set it up,  you get speed and reliabl…
  • thanks, I put my order in today. As side note, you have a lot going on with your server. 
  • Just wanted to confirm folks that folks are still having good luck with NOD32?  Newegg has version 4 for $20, and then you get a free upgrade to 5 from ESET,  before I pull the trigger, just want to confirm it's working for everyone.
  • tuns out, Comodo AV works fine with out drivepool installed, so it looks like a compatibility issue between the two, Anyone recommend an AV?
  • ok, figured out the source of the problem, Something to do with the antivirus, I was able to duplicate it on another system, no issues before the install, after installing comodo, the modified dates were changing again, uninstalled the program, and …
  • OK, explorer.exe is listed as the "write file" operation a number of times, there's also tons of "read File", then there "create file" by searchprotocolhost.exe. listed a number of times as well.  698 entries related to the file in 4 seconds.
  • Thanks for the suggestion, here are the programs that show up in the resource monitor when I select a file, Explorer.exe, cmdagent.exe (comodo AV), system, searchprotocolhost.exe.  I assume its searchprotocolhost.exe that's causing the issue, and it…
  • Also I am planning on skipping WIN8. I don't like the new start menu, and it does not offer anything over win7 that I am interested in. In addition I don't like that they are taking Media Center out and making it an extra cost that can only be appl…
  • I'm running  perfect disk 12, Comodo AV, Backup4All, and the addins are lights out, Drivepool, and Awieco remote launcher.  I did install a couple of other backup tools after identifying their was an issue  The only thing I can think of is that I d…
  • well, I was just in windows explorer of another system I've just built with out drivepool, and I'm not having any issues as I just described above with the modifed dates changing by just highlighting a jpg/file.  I can only assume my permissions are…
  • The Issues seems that every time I click on a file in a share with in the pool the system updates the modified date.  I'm looking in Windows explorer, and If I just hight light a picture, the modified dated is updated to the current date and time,  …
  • I'm hosting the card in the server.   Recordings are being made locally on the HTPC's, but there's an auto archive feature in WHS/WHS 2011 that transfers the recordings back to the server.    there are no setting to adjust the auto archive, but I th…
  • I think your spliting hairs comparing the two hardware solutions.  The EX495, assuming you haven't upgraded has the E5200 CPU, so your going to have a little more horsepower,  or a lot more if you upgraded the CPU, and you have PM on the esata, what…
  • If moving the disk from whs v1, are you deleting all the hidden folders that were part of the whs v1 implementation? But also, you may end up with serveral disk with the same share folder, so I would think you would need to do one disk at a time.  k…
