    Anthony got a reaction from CBers in Anvil has landed   
    It has been a while coming, but Anvil has finally landed! First up I need to apologise for the delay, we are well behind our intended release date... but so goes the software engineering game.
    So, what's what? Well... the best thing to do is head to https://portal.anvil-fs.com and register. Once you've registered, you can install Anvil via the web interface.
    To get up and running, check out https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000860976-Installing-Anvil-File-Security and then https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000861716-Getting-started-with-Anvil (which, is incomplete... but I'm knackered).
    Over the next few days, I'll be posting here and on the blog... in addition to writing up more articles on different aspects of Anvil, so stay tuned. In the meantime, If you have any question, direct them to support - https://support.division-m.com, and we'll address them ASAP.

    Anthony got a reaction from CBers in Primary files > Duplicate after removing hard drive   
    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Important - This beta release has been heavily tested (in fact, the most rigorously test beta we have ever released), and expect new/updated features to be solid. 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).
