  • Hi, Just reading all the comments on the wd greens and I have to say I haven't had problems with mine at all I have 24 of them mixed 2tb & 3tb they all run very cool average 25c across all the drives the load cycle times and low the oldest driv…
  • Hi Ron Glad it works did the reds show up right with the old card in I don't have any reds test mine with might be the port multiplier I have greens in my array and they all show up fine 6gbs Lee
  • No problem let us know how it goes Lee
  • Lol we must have posted at the same time lol Anyway it will support the 16 drives and more they work by using port multipliers the 2722 will support over 200 drives using port multipliers in a daisy chain setup
  • Hi Ron I can't get near a computer at the moment so I'll try my best on the iPhone The controller I have this http://www.scan.co.uk/products/highpoint-r2722-sas-sata-6gb-s-2x-external-mini-sas-(sff-8088)-connector-with-8-external-ports-via-p Th…
  • Hi, Ron There are a few cheaper cards that support 1 external input only from high point I think I'll have a look later and post I would like to know what outputs the 16 bay has to make sure I give you the right advise also it may not be just the c…
  • Hi, Sorry to hear you also have the same problem as I had there is no workaround for it there is nothing wrong with your setup your just gunna have to think about the best way to do it raid or none raid. In raid the adaptec controller will take go…
  • Hi bud Yeah I tried that but the adaptec controller was having none of it, that's why I switched also to a rocket raid with a port expander that works great. That's what I was trying to explain using a raid controller for none raid and trying to …
  • Hi, jaz Just looked at your screen shot your drive temp is very high mine run at about 27 max lowest is 22 all 24 of them that high temp can't be good for the drive just a thought Lee
  • Hi, Having a server to tinker with is great fun and you won't have any problems once its all up and running they are also easy to expand and there are lots of cheap server parts on eBay I built mine for about £300 but retail puts my kvm console alo…
  • Hi, If you have a drive with data on it partition it 100mb is enough then if you initialize it should leave the data intact and accessible at least that's how it works on my asr-52445 if memory recalls you will only see the partition the initialis…
  • Hi, It's hard to say but I doubt it adaptec controllers tho extremely good can be a little difficult I have the 5xxx 24port raid and I had to replace it with a cheap high point hba and a chenbro 36port controller My reason for this was in order t…
  • Hi, I have had my client backups running fine for over a year whs11 + dp they have been problems in the past this is how I got my backups to work Used the standard folder and made a full backup of all client pc's then once that had finished used…
  • I have the same kind of problems the drive removal side of drivepool seems to be very temperamental tho I did notice the more data on the drive the more likely it will fail to remove normally once you have tried it 2 or 3 times it does work. It we…
  • Hi, Drivepool is not really designed for what your trying to do your trying to switch of all the functions of drivepool and do it all manually. While I am sure it is possible to do what you want I doubt it will be as straight forward the software …
  • Hi Navigate to the the scanner c:folder not sure of the full path and look for the config file scanner service config then set Unsafedirectio to true save and restart I had the same problem with drives smart not showing worked for me if you start t…
  • I would also like to see parity added to drivepool since many dp users use it to store movies duplication is a waste of expensive space since we can now create multiple pools. it would be great to be able to have 1 pool for movies protected by parit…
  • hi phil,Thanks for the reply i was thinking the same the only problem is scanner flags the drive as damaged even tho like u say 1 bad block is nothing and has prob been remapped.As a result scanner wants to move all the files off the drive the only …

  • Hi Tom Never realy noticed the dashboard being slow then again mine has never been fast either lol tbh tho once it's setup I don't see it being a problem for you I may log into the dashboard once a month if that on that note if you have to use it a…
  • Hi There is another way to get the client backups on the pool follow my above steps and perform the client backups with the folder off the pool once the backups are done add the folder to the pool and check to see if the backup works I have tried…
  • Hi cheat Once your pool has been set up if you had to do a new install of whs and reinstall drive pool it would pick all your folders and files up with no need to mess around. I know this because I have tried it with about 17 tb of data on a 24 tb …
  • Slow ! I stream BD rips to 6 different rooms while accessing the server from 2 more computer's and transferring another 300gb of rips to a 24 tb pool without any stutter I would hardly call that slow I also have to say having being a beta tester si…
