  • Any reason why you would want to use ghost?  The included server backup/restore works really well. B-)
  • Just wondered how u are getting on with this!
  • I totally agree. Such a balancer would be great. All files belonging in a folder staying on the same drive. Video file, metadata, folder art, nfo... Etc
  • Absolutely no problem lol.. Dont know why they disappeared tho, I have nver had an issue like that .
  • Im glad it worked.. Its really strange why you had initial problems. My pool is currently at 17.7TB. Some folders are duplicated and others not. Im pretty sure i have never had an issue with duplication .I should add, i actually mean the folders tha…
  • Hey sorry.. its been a long day at work lol.. I should have read your post properly. :-(I have never had your issue.. A possiblity is to actually deselect duplication for the folder. Reboot server and duplicate folder again... Other than banal thoug…
  • Yes they are... You need to go into control panel, folder options.From there click the "view" tab.. about 8th or 9th item down i think, is "show hidden files and folders."Select that and u will then see on each of your drives "serverpoolpartfolders"…
  • Do you have show hidden folders enabled. if so, are your  videos on the pooled drives?
  • Im glad you got your system up and running again. I should have mentioned, after saying about storing as little critical data on the remaining O/S drive partition in case of having to reinstall. My solution was exactly the same as yours. In my case …
  • Welcome over from the dark side :-) So now the only question remaining is how long will it take Microsoft to make storage spaces as reliable and fast and DrivePool. Sure it may work out of the box, but i think its gonna be a long while before we see…
  • I would have thought u would still be ok with an ide drive. But to be honest its MANY years since i used an IDE. Maybe someone who knows a little more about IDE could chip in. It just bothers me that if you store any data on the remainder of the 2TB…
  • Sorry. I did mean to get to you yesterday. I did mean to tell you to move your stuff out of the serverpoolparts folders then delete, if you were planning a reinstall. I gotta say 3 drives with bad sectors is just unlucky. Are they various brands? I …
  • Yes.. Move all those to the root of the drive.. Then when the serverpool part folders are all empty, delete them. Then reinstall your server. Basically you will be starting from sctach.. Your best option imo. Then do the reinstall.. Then follow my e…
  • http://mypkb.wordpress.com/2007/03/28/how-to-non-destructively-convert-dynamic-disks-to-basic-disks/ Never used it, so at your own risk. It is totally free however and says it runs on Server 2008 Have u had a look at this yet??
  • Personally i would firstly drag all the individual server folders to the root of the 2TB drives and also migrate the data on the 500GB drive to the larger drives. Ensure u drag the individual folders and not the entire "ServerFolders" as this will l…
  • No worries... And regarding the other question.. My server runs 14 Hdd's and an Ssd for the O/S. 10 out of the 14 drives are in the pool.I decided to reinstall the other week. When u put drivepool back on after the reinstall, it simply sees the serv…
  • Yes... Ensure you unplug all drives except the install drive..If u have needed data anywhere on the physical install drive, migrate that off too. WHS2011 will wipe the full drive regardless of any partitions u have set up. I should add tho, that Sha…
  • Exact same now happening here... Drive pool service crashes when copying files to the server... Have rolled back to the last stable and still having issues.. Will try uninstalling totally when I get home, do a registry clean up then reinstall the st…
  • Hi mate. Basically what u have is the latest stable release. The update it offers you is a beta/bug fix release. They are located in a seperate area. http://wiki.covecube.com/DrivePool_Development_BETA
  •   So according to the twitter feed 1.0.1.6008 was released on April 10th. That is almost 2 months ago. Are there any plans on getting a new stable release out the door? It seems like (according to twitter) new beta releases come out several times a …
  • Well im sure kman wouldnt be offended, because he had never made any other post on the forum.Indeed he created his profile an hour or so before he made that post. (In a similar way to yourself). He too was obviously an avid DrivePool user and withou…
  • Becareful doing this. I just went from drivebender to drivepool and then had to go back because of problems with drivepool. Just make sure drivepool is working for you correctly before moving. LOL, good one! Yep.. Thats the funniest post i have rea…
  • Can i just add that if u are to have any issues, which as datageek says is unlikely. You could always convert to ISO files with Imgburn or similar. Especially as there is now an add in for WHS2011 that deals with ISO files
  • , so please don't chastise me for trying to do the right thing. Not really sure where anyone had done that!
  • Well not very happy. I waited for this to be released and installed with excitment. Only to find it slow and then after a day my server had a bsod. Now it wont boot. Off to do a rebuild, thanks. So why rebuild? About 25 minutes to do a server resto…
  • pure software elegance. What a great and apt choice of words
  • Well im hoping for porting to Windows 7. If that comes i will have no interest in Windows 8 and storage spaces.
  • "in comparison to the other crap drive pooling solution." Said with such feeling, but oh so true. There is no comparison on ease of use, there is no comparison on price
  • There is no need for a wizard. Its already pretty simple and DP is built like rest of WHS setting in the Dashboard I couldnt agree more.. There is no confusing terminology such as add drive or merge drive as is the case of a rival product.
  • $20.. That is ludicrously cheap. WHS2011 is now a useable product with DrivePool installed . Shame there is no donate button anywhere. I could buy two licences even though i only need one. But the donate button would allow people to show gratitude f…
