    Drive Bender v3.1.0.0 released

    Thanks everyone, and a happy New Year to all 😀
  4. First of all, I would recommend upgrading to v3 (v3.1.0.0), balancing has been much improved in v3. If you have turned off duplication (and let it finish), then map a drive letter to the pool (see - https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/214027203-How-do-I-map-or-remove-a-drive-letter-to-one-of-the-drives-in-the-pool-), you can then use Windows Explorer to search for folders called "FOLDER.DUPLICATE.$DRIVEBENDER"... you can simply delete these folders if there are any left (use shift-delete so they don't end up in the recycle bin). Also, we need to ensure the clearing zone is being cleared before we re-enable duplication (let me know if this is not the case)... the file count should sort itself when the next file check is performed.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Beta v3.0.8.0

    We have determined this is a firewall issue... when DB starts, it decrypts the firewall values for each mount point using a unique key. If this fails, it defaults to read only... this is to prevent a bad actor simply deleting, or modifying the firewall value. This seems to have happened, and we are just trying to understand why.

    You are 100% correct! Are you seeing a performance issue?

The only "if" we have is around the performance of the Drive Idle feature, something difficult for us to test, as it needs a wide range of hardware. If you experience any performance issues with folder listings, please let us know (you can disable Drive Idle via settings).

    Beta v3.0.0.0

    Some good news, we have solved the Drive Idle issue... just performing some final tests and should have a new beta out in the next week.

    Beta v3.0.0.0

    Hi all, Just a quick update on the next beta. We are still trying to nail down an issue with Drive Idle... we believe we have sorted the performance problem, however, there is still an issue with files not displaying on occasions. Problem difficult to sort, as it can take days before it shows up. Anyways... stay tuned!

    Beta v3.0.0.0

    Hi All, We are seeing a number of performance / general issues with Drive Idle, so we are holding off on the next v3.x update.
