  2. I will keep you guys posted. Ticket submitted
  3. thanks for the info- yes I have reviewed the FAQ. Also I have created the separate mount point M:/ for the MEDIA folder, however the point P:/ remains accessible from the HTPC account. I will contact the devs.
  4. Welcome edo. To be honest, I'm not sure what the answer is, as I only have single accounts on the servers where I run DriveBender. Have you checked the permissions within DriveBender? It may be possible to create a separate folder mountpoint and grant access to this mountpoint only to your HTPC user. Have you read through the FAQs for DriveBender - https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/categories/201693583-Knowledge-Base-Drive-Bender If none of that is possible, and in lieu of any other answers, you could raise a Support Ticket (https://support.division-m.com) and get the devs involved. Let us know how you get on.
  5. hello folks, I am new to DB so please be patient with me. I have some permissions issue that I can't resolve. Here is my setup: I am running a windows 10 PC which doubles as (1) the home theater computer and (2) as a backup server for all family / work files. The pool consists of two 6T drives running from an external enclosure connected via a USB 3.1 port. No RAID configs. The pool is mapped to the letter P: (I know, I am not being too original here...) The PC has two accounts: The HTPC account is limited used by everyone in the family to watch movies, etc. It is logged in automatically at startup, requires no password and has a disabled UAC. The media files are stored under P:/MEDIA The Admin account used to configure the backup program which runs a service in the background. The backup files are stored under P:/BACKUP The idea is to make the HTCP account only see the MEDIA files and not the BACKUP files. Now, here is what I did: when logged from the admin account I navigated to P:/BACKUP folder and used properties/sharing/advanced sharing to set the permissions allowing read and write access to the admin user only. In contrast I allowed the HTPC user to access P:/MEDIA files. I then logged into the HTCP account and mapped the MEDIA folder to letter M:/ so all my media files became accessible from M:/MEDIA so far so good - this is what I thought.... But here is the problem: the entire pooled drive P:/ remains visible from the HTCP account including full access to the BACKUP files. I am unable to remove the mount point P because it then also removes the mount point M. The sharing on the P drive doesn't seem to work at all. What I am missing and how to restrict the HTCP account from seeing the BACKUP files? Thanks and sorry for somewhat detailed posting Ed
  6. That's sounds strange Marcelo. Have you rebooted the PC since setting up the DriveBender pool? Which version of DB are you using? There's always the option of raising a Support Ticket (https://support.division-m.com) and getting the devs involved. Keep us updated.
  7. Ok I have to admit that ever since the WHSv1 and then WHS2011 days I have looked at Drive Bender (and tested for a short while back in the day) but opted for DrivePool at the time. Now all these years later I have finally seen the light. Drivepool has destroyed my carefully created and non fragmented archive drives for the very last time. Then having messed with Storage Spaces for a few days I abandoned that quickly. So it was time to revisit Drive Bender and I'm extremely happy. "Cascade Mode" is all I have ever been looking for. Thanks Anthony.
  8. I'm testing drive bender ... I mounted the server and made a pool I can delete, save, read, modify, but I can not copy the file Has anyone had this problem ??
  9. You have right. Scan for Drives und delete the other Moundpoint solve the problem. Server now finish and works great with drive bender. Thanks for the help.
  10. Earlier
  11. So all of your old drives are in the restored pool on your new server? You may have to remove the drive letter from the pool disks as for some reason, they get assigned a drive by Windows and DB doesn't remove it on a restore. Once all your drives are found by DB and the pool is restored, you can add new drives to the pool. If that still isn't working as you think it should, then please raise a Support Ticket.
  12. okay, thanks for the first instruktion. Today the delivery arrived me with the Caddy for my DL380e Gen 8 Server with HP Raid P420i in HBA Mode. I have easy release the license from the old server and install the new drivebender version on the new server and setup the lisence there. Next i created some drivepool with the letter e : switch them online and add some empty drive. After that i shutdown booth servers and put out the diskdrive physicaly from the old and put them into the new server. Then i start and boot the server and the most HDDs was detected fine Frist i have mapped my BD-Rom Drive to D : And with the Diskmanagement tool i switch the letter to i : but two of these create a new drive letter. On Drive H : and F : there are some DriveRepairfiles like: DriveRepair-170625184148.csv What should i do with that? After this i open the drivebender and convert these two drives to a pool drive but the drive letter does still exist. I deleate that in drive manager with removing the letter right? It is Drive 13 and 15 So then i performed an pool restore with the connected drives. That shows good and some files are accessable, but the drive H and F are not be a part of the pool! Why? There is a many Datas stored on this drive. I test some around but i didnt find anything to solve this problem. Can you please help me out? Log Drivebender.txt
  13. 1- You should release the license for DriveBender on your old server 2- Remove disks and install on new server 3- Install DB software 4- when you reboot after installing DB it should recognize the pool and all should be well 5- reregister your DB license on the new server
  14. Hello, i'm using dirvebender since a clouple of years very succsessfull under Windows Server 2012R2. But now i have buy some new Server with Windows 2016. The Server is installed great and i will use drivebender again in future. In the old server i have configured a very great diskpool. Now i have to take all these disks out from the old and put in in the new server. One option that i try is, to remove the disk from the pool. The data will be move on the other Disks in the pool. Thats okay, but take a long time for 4 TB disks. Is it possible to easy take out these disks from the old server to and put them to the new server and mount them to the new server pool? If it's possible how can i do that and what things must I consider? Greatings
  15. You should open a trouble ticket and ask the developer about the cbfs driver and if it has been tested and known to work or not with Server 2019. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  16. I recently upgraded from Windows Server 2016 to Server 2019 on my home server, which is running a DriveBender pool. Once upgraded, I was unable to start the Windows Deduplication service (which enables native Dedupe capabilities). I don't use the dedupe features on any drives that DriveBender touches, but I do use it on another drive which stores File History backups for my PCs, which provides for massive space savings. Thinking that the problem was with an in-place upgrade (which Microsoft to be fair barely recommend themselves), I did a fresh install, but ended up in the same situation. Delving deeper into what was causing the problem, I ran the "fltmc filters" command and discovered that there was a driver listed as "legacy" called cbfs6.sys. This is of course the driver that help DriveBender do it's stuff. On uninstalling the driver, the dedupe role immediately started working (after a reboot). I am hoping that the most recent CBFS driver (available https://www.callbacktechnologies.com/download/) will work, but of course I don't think I can just go ahead and use that trial version. Is there a way to test the most recent version of the filesystem filter driver? Thanks, - Russell
  17. Apparently, it's fixed for the next release.
  18. This happened to me as well I had to follow this to get it working again https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000568955-Hard-resetting-Pool-Firewall-rules hardly ideal when it's unclear what causes it (I'm on the May 2019 Windows 10 update).
  19. No, I wasn't sure if this is normal behavior so I came here first.
  20. Have you opened a support ticket? https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  21. I have two identical machines (they're file servers, syncing over the internet with Resilio.) One is running DriveBender, the other running DrivePool. They're both running Windows 10 Pro, each with Windows Search (Indexing) service disabled, each with Virus Scanning disabled for the pooled disks. The DriveBender machine has non-stop pooled disk activity, where the DrivePool machine sits 100% idle for hours on end. The DriveBender dashboard says no scheduled tasks are running, but the Windows 10 Performance monitor shows the DriveBender service is the only thing accessing the disk. I've disabled the SMART health checks / reports in the DB dashboard, as well as disabled the SMART DB service to no avail. There's no real I/O happening (MB/s) but it's like DB is indexing files start to finish, but never ending. The box has been running for >1week, and it's not stopped. Is there anything I can try to let this machine idle? The machine needs to be on 24/7, and the constant disk access is no good.
  22. Got a reply from Anthony. He said it's been reported by several users and he's working a fix for
  23. I also have the same issue and have a call open. In my case it looks to have occurred after a large change of data occurred. In this particular instance after a clean up of WHS backup data.
  24. For some reason this periodically resets to a very bogus number. This time I have 14.34TB used of my 4TB pool! I've reopened a ticket.
  25. I've closed the ticket. No trouble found in the logs. I manually went through and turned on duplication for each the sub-folders that didn't duplicate. New sub-folders duplicate as they should.
