    Is this possible with Drive Bender?

    Your current raid 10 array would have to be broken to remove 2 of the 2TB drives and replace them with 2 10TB drives. Seems like you'd have to do something like install one of the 10 TB somewhere outside your raid 10 array - copy the data on the array to the 10 TB drive - shut down the array and reconfigure the 4 drives to JBOD (regular drives) - replace 2 of the 2TB drives with the 2 10TB drives (1 of these drives would contain the data you copied from the array) - install the DB software (you will find the DB manual in the install directory "Drive Bender Manual.pdf" you should read the manual before proceeding) - on page 12 of the manual it talks about converting a drive to the pool. You will want to use the convert method to "import" the 10 TB drive to the pool that you copied all your data to. You can then add the 2nd 10TB drive to the pool using the initialize/format option. You should then have a pool that contains your 2 10TB drives. Then using the Drive Bender manager you would define what gets duplicated. Depending on what you're thinking you could then add the 2 remaining 2TB drives to the pool or just use them as regular drives. The key is to really read and understand the manual! Once you have your pool up and running and decide you like the DB software you can buy the software and input your license key. For the 60 day trial period the software is FULL Function.

    empty pool but files are there....

    Have you checked the drive bender logs for errors? I suspect this is worth opening a support case.

    will it be possible to use Drive Xtender with the existing DriveBender pool? Or is the pool structure different? Trying to figure out how much work and how risky such transition would be.

    Copy failed drive to pool?

    Why can't you put the cloned drive in the pool with a new drive and then drain the cloned drive? Seems like this should get your files squared away in the pool. Then you can put the cloned drive back in your NAS.

    Drive errors

    If this is coming in small batches, I've been told by the developer that this is the smart monitor noise from a known but. Try disabling the smart monitor sevice.
