  • I have been using Drivepool since the Beta started with no loss of data and a real amazement of the simplicity of recovery from the many Beta issues that go with early development involvement. I have 4TB of data now on an HP MSS EX485 and feel that …
  • I moved 2.5 T in a single folder and did a size compare and everything is fine. Checked several other folders with the same results.
