    GBs of logfiles?

    There should be a max of 10 sil files, and a similar number for the other logs (can't recall the exact number, need to check). Let me look into this... we are just finishing dev work DB v3, so if there is an issue we would want it sorted before it's release.

    GBs of logfiles?

    I have 27 FILES on the Logs folder, going back 1 month. Total size is 367MB.

    Problems with big files

    I opened a case with support and they asked me to capture logs - unfortunately I've had so much on I haven't been able to get round to this yet but perhaps it's something to consider doing. Hope fully I'll get round to it at some point but Division-M do seem willing to investigate. As an aside though, I did add an SSD to my system which I now use as a landing drive and I expected that this might fix the problem - it didn't.

    anyone ever solved this problem? i have an intel nuc with storage connected via usb3. everything works great. except one large vhdx file, which is located on the pool drive, when i use this it gets disconnected when much writing is done.

    You should definitely open a support ticket with this question https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new I would tend to agree that we should be able to shut this off.

    GBs of logfiles?

    Hi Anthony (et al), I've noticed DriveBender is storing lots of large (>200mb) log files in ProgramData. The filenames are "HealthMonitorAudit", and they're totalling 2.6GB going back 3 months (to late March). This seems like a bit of a waste of SSD space since I have DB set to no logging - is this happening by design and can I turn it off via a standard setting I've overlooked? If not is it something that can/should be adjusted? Cheers for any insight.

    Pool passthrough to hyper-v vm

    Just from a sys admin background I would say you don't want to setup this way. Your Hyper V host should be only that, not running anything else. You can pass disks directly through to a VM if you want, but MS don't recommend it and there is no performance or other benefit over just creating a VHD on the disk the maximum size and assigning this to the VM. There are benefits to a VHD over pass through disks around portability and recovery and there is no issue mounting a VHD on any Windows system to view the files if required. In saying that I have passed the disks Sounds like you should look at having one VM for managing the storage, running Drive Bender etc. and another for running Plex?

    Pool passthrough to hyper-v vm

    I think I'll work on moving this to a vm this weekend. I'll create a new pool on one of the vm's and then start removing 1 drive at a time from the original pool. Once the data is moved off the drive I'll put the drive offline and add it to the vm. I'll copy as much data as I can to the new pool and then rinse and repeat 10 more times.

    SONOS LIBRARY in Drive Bender Pool

    Yes that is a SONOS function. That's how SONOS knows what is in the library to be able to play by album, artist, genre, playlist, etc. It happens automatically once you point SONOS to the content folder.

    SONOS LIBRARY in Drive Bender Pool

    When you say you "indexed" your music folder is that a SONOS function, Windows indexing, from the local DB machine or a remote machine? Did you try it without indexing?

    SONOS LIBRARY in Drive Bender Pool

    SONOS restriction (as far as I know) when you are assigning a music library on a remote machine (PC, NAS, etc), is that you need to specify the literal path and cannot use a mapped drive letter. I know the path I constructed was correctly formed since I was able to use the same construct to map the drive locally. When I installed the SONOS app on my DB machine, it was then a local folder in the Pool. That all worked well, until I indexed the music library folder and rebooted the system. That's when DB could not find the mount.

    SONOS LIBRARY in Drive Bender Pool

    I know little to nothing about SONOS, but I have my music library in my DB pool and access it using Logitech Media server with no problems. Does SONOS have restrictions on using a network drive. I do know that there's a limit on the size of a music library that SONOS can handle or have they now added an interface to go through iTunes?

    Pool showing up with two letters

    I think you can delete one of the pool drives using the Drive Bender manager using the "Remove redundant pool(s)". When you defined your pool DB would have removed the drive letters for the K and L drives so it should be just fine for Windows to assign K to another drive.
  19. Anyone running Drive Bender to host their iTunes library and having SONOS Windows App index that library for playing thru SONOS? I recently tried that and was unable to have my Laptop running the SONOS app configure SONOS for accessing the Drive Bender Pool Folder. SonoS rejects the valid network path \\NASPC\ODRIVE\iTunes\iTunes Library. After several attempts at that, decided to load the SONOS app on the same machine as Drive Bender. Then assigning the iTunes library as a local folder, SONOS indexing began, and appeared to work (SONOS could play music). However, after rebooting the Drive Bender Machine, DB failed to find the mount point and pool and I was getting a dialog box to find the pool via "local host" and port 9885 (like a remote connection). Essentially the DB Manager showed no drives at all. I performed a Windows System Restore on the Drive Bender machine and restored it to prior to the SONOS install - everything returned to normal. I have since decided to have SONOS use a back up folder of iTunes on a separate Western Digital MyCloud machine for its indexing function. Was curious if any other SONOS users have come across this problem, or are operating w/o any issues. My Drive Bender machine is Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.17134 Build 17134
  20. I started a pool using drive K and drive L and called it M. Now the pool is listed under m but also listed under J with same info and everything. I plug in a drive that is not part of the pool and it is now listed as K. Is it ok for the pool to be listed as M and J.
  21. In that case, if I was you, I would raise a Support Ticket.

    Way to combine pools

    I want to have at least two pools but is there a way to combine the pools at some point if necessary and also is there a way to create a pool from within a pool. I was reading about other programs and you can combine pools and create pool from within pool. I like the idea in Drive Bender about merging files when adding a drive to a pool. I am trying out the trial. Thanks.
  24. Are you trying to add disks on your NAS into a DriveBender pool ?? If so, that will not work.
  25. Yep that's what Ive done, to confirm permissions and owner appear OK. At least some of the problem files appear to be stored on the NAS where the permissions are as below (and confirmed on the files) Owner: WADENAS01\Admin Administrator (Domain): Read, Write Domain Users: Read, Write I can browse directly to the NAS drive like for instance: \\wadenas01\disk3\{FAF3890C-4CFC-4F52-A094-3A14E39344C4}\Shares\TV\... and open the files there OK, but when I try via the shared TV folder from the DriveBender mapped drive I can't view the permissions or open the files. This includes new files I have copied to the Drive Bender folder that have then stored on the NAS drive which has the most space free tonight. Just on another thing that mismatched folders have fixed up it appears, DB was performing a check for a fair while and created missing folders on each drive.
  26. You could add a drive letter to (one of) your discs and see if you can access the files via File Explorer. That would either point to, or rule out, DriveBender. NB. Do not make any changes to the files though, as this could lead to problems within the pool.
  27. Hi Yes, have mounted all the local drives and browsed to the network ones to make sure from the {FAF3890C-4CFC-4F52-A094-3A14E39344C4} folder and set to replace owners on all subfolders as well as confirm permissions. Like from that view (mapped drive to volume)\{FAF3890C-4CFC-4F52-A094-3A14E39344C4}\movies\movie\movie.mkv the permissions look right, its only under the Mount Point drive letter that only media files cannot view the security permissions for at all.
  28. Have you made sure you are the owner of the files / folders in the pool? Here's how to check and take ownership https://www.windowscentral.com/how-take-ownership-files-and-folders-windows-10
