  • Shane - understood and very much appreciated.  Now I get the differences very clearly. So are you running the last Release or the current RC flavor?  I guess I can wait a bit for an official "Release" with NFS. While I'm thinking about it - any exp…
  • ok, I just stumbled into the BLOG section and see a posting from mid March on 1.3 Final release and Beta.  How does a fairly new use go about deciding what version he/she should be installing/upgrading to?  Does the 1.3 "final" release hav…
  • OK, will try later.  Assuming the different data is to avoid cache issues?  I use TeraCopy also.  I'll report back.

  • Thanks Shane, So I migrated everything over and like @tlsrulz, I had duplication turned on for most of my data - so not sure how long DrivePool will (a) take to recognize this (and presumably skip trying to duplicate files already duplicated) and/o…
  • Just want to make sure I understand the moving process - hope these aren't dumb questions... 1)   When you say "add at least one Data Drive to the pool" - is this a drive from the old server (with the DE folder ad data on it) or is this a new (empt…
