  2. DB for Synology

    Hey guys, Had a hunt through the forums, and didnt really find much info. I recently got a 4 bay Synology NAS, and realised what a pain it is having to use RAID again, especially when I want to upgrade / swap out disks. Is there any chance there may be a DB for Synology planned? Would be awesome to be able to tag a disk for removal, as easily as i can on my home server. Wanted to use the Synology as a backup device. Appreciate any thoughts / comments!

  4. Patch v2.8.2.2

    I am going to try this patch out now since I had another episode of my Landing Zone having a few Gigs of data that never cleared. I also discovered that my Primary file count and Duplicate file count rarely matched any more. Clicking on "Perform a file system health check on the pool" seemed to do two things: 1) cleared the Landing Zone and 2) ran whatever process it is that makes the Primary count = the Duplicate count. I followed the instructions to install the patch, but the DriveBenderService wanted to keep re-starting after killing the process, so I had to go into Services and Stop AND Disable the both the Drive Bender Service and the Drive Bender SMART Service, then, kill the Drive Bender Service once and for all in the file manager. After a re-boot, I confirmed the 2.8.2.2 version in the notification/alerts section. If anything new happens, I'll post again. I appreciate your work on this Anthony!

  6. Licensing server issues

    Thanks for the update Anthony.
  7. Hi all, We are experiencing licensing server issues which is 1) Preventing new license keys being sent to new users. 2) Preventing license key activation. The problem relates to DNS... and getting sorted is proving to be very slow (we are now fed up and have move providers). In the meantime, we are manually sending new key, and user wishing to activate can do so manually (see - https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/214026283) Otherwise, it should be working again in a day or so.
  8. There have been a couple of reports of a permissions problem in the last few days. I would suggest you open a ticket with the developer. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  9. Permissions network shared drive

    This is the 2nd report of a permissions problem in the last few days. I would suggest you open a ticket with the developer. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  10. I have 4 drives pooled on a dedicated PC. Created a drive letter mount point and shared it using the standard Windows Network Share properties. The shared drive is accessible by other computers in the network and I can change, remove and edit all the files i merged when adding the drives. However dragging new files into the drive (using the networked computer) or changing any newly created files/folders results in a permission denied warning. When I click any of the newly created files and view the security tab it says "You must have Read permissions to view the properties of this object". Should i be sharing the drive in some other way, or change the permissions? I tried searching the forums and found some people having permission problems but none using a network shared pool drive. Any info/help would be appreciated.
  11. Cloud Xtender Improvement Idea

    Duplicate.
  12. Patch v2.8.2.2

    Yes for sure... there may be some small tweaks based on user feedback, but this will be in the v2.9 release.
  13. Team, I have a suggestion. Could your development team create a "reverse remote" option in CX so our external storage resources (one drive, google drive, etc.) don't fill up so fast. In other words, we would host our data internally on our own servers / workstations and have access to it via a ghost image that pulls real data from our internal servers / workstations instead of the current option which allows your to host the real data on the external storage resource and only have the ghost image, or a true mirror) on the internal server / workstation. Thoughts?

  15. Adding to this now that I am still tinkering with it . . . If I right click on a folder to show the folder properties, then go to sharing tab, click on the button that reads, "Share . . . ." under Network File and Folder Sharing. Then, once the File Sharing dialog box appears, I have the option of two buttons: Share and Cancel. I click on Share, and the progress indicator shows up and all seems to work fine and I am able to copy from one computer to the other. Any ideas why the folder somehow loses this setting? Thank you.
  16. Hello Everyone: I'm relatively new, licensed user of Drive Bender. My set up is that I am copying files from one desktop computer over a wired home network to another desktop computer with a fresh install of Win 7 Pro with Drive Bender pooling seven drives with the eighth drive partitioned as OS/Programs/Landing zone. I am using SyncBack Pro to mirror the data on my main desktop (source) to this new computer (destination) with Drive Bender on it. This new computer has me as the administrator, as well, i.e. the user accounts are mirrored. The seven drives are pooled and just contain the "mirrored" data from the main or source computer. I have been rearranging files and folders on the main computer then running SyncBack Pro to mirror the changes to the destination computer on the pooled Drive Bender drives. This is basically > 5 TB of files that I've been sorting and then attempting to mirror. Unfortunately, I've started to see permission warning boxes pop up on the source computer that basically halt any transfer of files and folders. Yes, I have read several threads on this forum about sharing and security permissions, but don't know what's going on or how to fix this. Images are attached to this posting. I really don't know anything about permissions and whatnot. I just hoped that simple copying wouldn't cause such a hassle. Any help from the community is greatly appreciated. Is this a network problem? Is this a Drive Bender problem? Is this a Windows 7 problem? Is this a SyncBack problem? Thanks in adavnce.
  17. To assign folder to one drive?

    It's possible. You add an empty file called "FOLDER.TARGET.$DRIVEBENDER" to the folder on the PHYSICAL DISK you want the folder to reside on, and manually change the "Balancing Method" string in the registry to 1, 4 or 5 for most space, even or cascade balancing. There's no gui support for these options, touching any of the balancing options in the gui will override this ^^ registry setting, and subfolders completely ignore the rules, which means the empty file above ^^ must be in every single one. Here's the original blog entry.
  18. Disable Parallel Folder Structure for Landing Zone??

    Sorry, When you posted this and nobody had responded other than me on your other post I just figured you would open a ticket.
  19. Patch v2.8.2.2

    I've installed the patch to 2.8.2.2 on my second server running Windows 10 Pro 1709 and everything just runs fine.
  20. Disable Parallel Folder Structure for Landing Zone??

    I'd assumed Division M wanted people to petition the community for help before burdening their paid customer support staff, but I guess I got it wrong.
  21. Disable Parallel Folder Structure for Landing Zone??

    Did you open a ticket as I suggested in your other post. That suggestion would apply regardless of your post being in the Cloud Xtender section.
  22. I mistakenly posted a question to the Cloud Xtender subforum a few days ago and it doesn't look like the mods are going to move it for me so I'll repeat my most pressing question here: I'm trying to use DriveBender's landing zone so that downloaded files are are collected on an internal drive throughout the day, and my external enclosure only has to spin up to accept the day's files in one go each night. Problem is, DriveBender's duplicate folder structure means that although the new FILES are being placed the landing zone, it spins up all 8 of my external hard drives just to create the new folders! Is there a hack / tweak / registry setting I can employ to defeat this folder/file structure from power cycling my poor drives?
  23. Drive Bender 2.8 Normal CPU Usage?

    Db sometimes has higher CPU when managing any io. Servio may be doing indexing or media lookups. I have Plex on my db box. I'll check later when I get home.
  24. Drive Bender 2.8 Normal CPU Usage?

    I think I figured it out. It's odd, though. I am running Serviio media server as a service. Even though the Serviio process rarely shows up in task manager on my Windows 7 Pro machine (1% every so often), it must be doing something behind the scenes to make Drive Bender do "something." I don't know what Serviio is doing in the background that would cause Drive Bender to activate. Maybe Serviio is scanning folders for new files My pool configuration . . . I don't know how to explain that. I've got a Crucial MX500 500gb SSD partitioned into thirds (Win7Pro/Data/DB Landing Zone). The rest of the pool is 7 spinning drives of various makes and models between 1 tb and 2 tb. Gigabyte mobo, 16gB ram, AMD A10-6700. Finally dumped Windows Home Server V1 and am using Drive Bender to make it a HTPC/Backup machine. So far, so good! So, back to the issue. Turning off Serviio service makes my CPU usage bounce around at 1% and that makes me happy. No case needed.
  25. Hello, I managed to disable some security settings and now I'm able authenticate the Dropbox into Cloud Xtender. When I create a drive in the local machine and sync it to Dropbox, the drive is telling me 0 bytes free of 4 gb. How am I able to use this drive? Also windows giving me error that a drive has low space. What is wrong please?
  26. I did already after I created this post and they replied already. Thanks.
  27. Drive Bender 2.8 Normal CPU Usage?

    That CPU usage seems high to me. What CPU do you have and what is your pool configuration? You might want to open a support ticket, https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
