    OK, I've now upgraded to v3.0.9.0. All seems OK at the moment.

    LOL Glad to hear it's running OK. I think I might take the plunge and upgrade mine today

    Beta v3.0.9.0

    I knew who it was, I was letting you off the hook. 😉 So far it's running fine for me. I'm waiting to see how Backup cleanup runs tonight with the 2nd round of backups on my PC's. For @spaceboy Can't say as I have no remote drives.

    Network Drive as Part of Pool Issue

    hi, i just wanted to confirm that this still appears to be an issue in 3.0.0.9 beta. same symptoms, when i try and access from a 3rd pc a file in the pool but physically located on a network drive then i get told i have the wrong username / password. fine on the db PC that has the pool

    Beta v3.0.9.0

    @w3wilkes That might have been me. The current version and the previous version both use the same virtual drivers, so you don't need to uninstall to upgrade. Keep us up to date with your progress, as the last beta screwed with my config and I had to start afresh, although @Anthony said it was a problem with the firewall, which has been fixed. Looking for people's views on this version before upgrading, as I don't want to have to re-create everything again 😀

    Beta v3.0.9.0

    3.0.9.0 up and running. I'll let it soak in the default configuration for a while. I'll make sure that the backups performed by my WHS2011 server running Drive Bender of my local PC's run successfully and also the weekly backup cleanup task runs successfully. @Anthony One question... I saw a previous mention of a user who installed and said they had a problem, they then uninstalled their prior version and then installed the new release. I've been under the impression that we had to first uninstall the prior version before installing the current version, has that requirement been dropped?

    Beta v3.0.9.0

    Oh, and my drives are way bigger now (I have only a total 8 TB's in my pool): EDIT: Getting even bigger... hope this is not a bug which leads to crash: EDIT 2: Restarting DriveBender Service gets it back to normal, but still rising: EDIT 3: I also experience some kind of "micro stuttering/freezes" on the machine running drive bender when heavy IO is happening (e.g. extracting large archives ~12 GB on the pool drive). This def. is something new.

    Recently updated to 3.0.9.0, my WD Red Pool is lightning fast now : Seems to be some Error while measuring the activity of my surveillance software (BlueIris): Regards Daniel

    very high CPU usage

    https://imgur.com/a/6Tbhl8k i am only allowed to attach max file size 0.05MB, so i uploaded the screen capture to imgur above. my problem is, after some hours, drivebender will become consuming the complete CPU core, although there is no transfer of data going on. i need to restart the PC to make it normal again. i dont have file balancing nor drive firewall enabled. i do have driveidle enabled. i was on 3.0.0.0, and i just installed 3.0.9.0, i will monitor if this is fixed in the latest beta.

    Thanks Anthony. Does this fix the firewall issue I had?

    Beta v3.0.9.0

    Release v3.0.9.0 beta (2018-11-09) [ b ] Further improvements on Drive Idle performance. [ b ] A number of bug fixes on the Drive Idle feature. [ n ] Drive Idle now defaults to disabled. [ n ] Added notification options to the Pool Firewall. [ b ] A number of minor network share related issues. Download here Pool firewall configuration - We have posted a "How to" on the Pool Firewall, you can access via support at https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000366936 Important - We have now set the Drive Idle feature disabled by default (you can re-enable under setting -> performance). Due to the amount of time it is taking to resolve performance issues seen by some users, we are planning to release Drive Bender with this feature disabled. Once we have these issues resolved, we will release an update.

    Network Drive as Part of Pool Issue

    hi anthony, i am running v3.0.0.0. no problem, as i say i have removed the nas network drive from the pool for now. let me know if there is anything i can test if that would be helpful
  17. Anthony

    Beta v3.0.8.0

    Our main release is being held up by some performance issues with the new Drive Idle feature... seems, for some users, this is causing slow folder enumeration. So we can get the v3.1 release out, we are going to disable this feature by default (users can enable is they like)... then, once we have it performance sorted for all users, we'll do a point release that enables this feature by default. FYI - We are planning one more beta, v3.0.9.0

    Hi Anthony. I believe Spaceboy is running the original v3 beta. I'm sure he'll confirm soon enough. Thanks.

    Network Drive as Part of Pool Issue

    Thanks for the info... just want to confirm you are running v2.8? I can say we are chasing a network permissions issue for network shares ATM (we are trying to get it sorted before the v3.1 release), I suspect this is related.

    Network Drive as Part of Pool Issue

    Yes, everyone has full control of the Z Drive at the root level. The Z Drive is also shared with other PC's on the network

    Network Drive as Part of Pool Issue

    What permissions does your pool mountpoint (Z:) have? Does everyone have FULL access to it? Is the Z: drive a share under Windows?

    Network Drive as Part of Pool Issue

    perhaps i've been too complicated in my explanation. Looking further i can see radarr isnt the issue, i get the same in windows explorer from any third PC. i can answer Cbers Q: i agree normally but because i can access the nas from a 3rd PC as a UNC or mapped drive independently of the DB pool i can see what is on there. i can see it has the complete pool folder structure but only files in some folders. i can see all my problem files are on the NAS. there are no issues accessing anything on the NAS through the pool from the DB PC, its only when i bring a 3rd PC into play i have the issue then ruralcricket: so lets forget radarr, lets just use my laptop as the 3rd pc, from which i am writing this. AFAIK the laptop knows nothing of the NAS, it just sees the DB pool at z:\. but some of those files physically reside on the NAS as explained above. if i navigate to the file through z:\ i can't do anything with it, play it, delete it rename it etc. if i go through the unc or mapped drive direct to the nas at say W:\ then i can do all these things. I can't see anything else that explains this other than permissions. so excluding radarr and just thinking about windows, do you think the scenario i have described above should work? i'm absolutely no expert at any of this but it seemed to make sense to me and i can't see anywhere i could change anything to fix this. there are authentication fields in DB for remote drives but DB had and has full access anyway because i previously mapped the nas drives from the DB PC, but i also filled these in, it didn't seem to change anything. for now i removed the network drive from the pool as i understand there are other drawbacks to this, variable speeds for one. but if it is possible to fix i'd be interested in re-testing this. cheers

    Network Drive as Part of Pool Issue

    WRT your comment in the post above about "when the landing zone is cleared DB moves the file to another pool drive, in this case the nas", there's no way of knowing which "physical" disc the file is moved to, unless you directly access each disk to find the file, so I'm not sure how you can make that statement about the LZ clearing and moving to the NAS. I believe, it moves files to the "physical" disc with the most free space on. I've never used network drives in my pools, so not 100% sure of any permissions that might be needed, if at all. Does the NAS share that you added to DB have read/write permissions to all users?

    Network Drive as Part of Pool Issue

    Ok, I need a diagram. A) You have PC1 that has some local disk, a landing zone disk/ssd, you have also used the "Add Network Drive" feature to include the NAS in the pool. B) you have a NAS that is part of the pool. C) you have a Radarr box that stores it's content on the pool using the Pools drive letter. I don't understand why the Radarr box is even looking at the NAS. The raddar box shouldn't know that it's writing to the landing zone as that is DB's job to manage. This is what I'd do. On PC1 lets assume the DB pool is assigned drive letter P: and the raddar content is to be dropped into P:\downloads\raddar\ If you haven't already I'd create a user ID on PC1 for the raddar process e.g. raddar_user. I'd then create create a share called PC1\Raddar by going to the P:\downloads\ directory, right click on the raddar folder and select "give access to" or Share (depending on the OS), lets call this share "raddar_drop". I'd give the PC1 user raddar_user full acesss. (I'm limiting it to the p:\downloads\raddar folder so malware is limited to the raddar folder on PC1. Back on the Raddar box, I'd configure radar to access the \\PC1\raddar_drop share and use the user/pw for pc1\raddar_user for authentication. So during the writing of files to the PC1 box the network traffic will be Raddar-box > PC1 but later after the landing zone clears (hours latter) the traffic will be Radar-box <-> PC1 <->NAS.
  25. Hi, let me start by saying that i understand this is probably very much an edge case but i'm hoping there is a solution. i will try and describe what i think is happening: i have three machines in play here, we have a PC with DB on it, a NAS that that forms part of that pool and a pc on which i have a number of web services including radarr. the pool works fine from the radarr has downloaded a file, which once complete it moves to the DB pc, initially the landing zone when the landing zone is cleared DB moves the file to another pool drive, in this case the nas later radarr rescans the directory it thinks the file is in, looking at the pool and using the permissions it has for the DB machine however the file is now on the nas, and although the radarr machine has separate permissions for the nas it doesnt know that it needs to use them, as far as its concerned it can just see a network share so radarr can't see the file and re-obtains it. but it can't replace it because the the db pool sees the file. i think i proved this by, from the radarr machine, navigating to the same file, both through the pool and directly on the nas. it plays fine when going direct but not through the pool. i see precisely the same when accessing from any other third pc, eg my laptop on which i'm typing now, i can play from the nas directly but not from the pool. i hope this makes sense! is there likely any solution here? am i even right in my thoughts? thanks!

    I stand corrected... obviously DriveBender needs some time to cache the whole shebang. Works pretty cool, thanks @Anthony. @fattipants2016give it a try!

    Unfortunately yes... accessing folders with greater content [files or subfolders] takes up to 2 minutes for the first time, access after that is faster, but still takes 1 minute or slightly more.
