  1. From the information at the top of the Drive Bender Change Log file: SOFTWARE: Drive Bender PLATFORM: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 (x86 and x64 support for all the specified platforms). ...so it's officially supported, at least, in answer to your basic question.
  2. Checking on my system, I have 1023 files, all created within the same minute 7 days ago. Out of curiosity, I shut down and restarted the server but the files within the WIP folder and subfolder remain the same.
  3. Just watch for posts, Betas are available to anyone when announced.
  4. You didn't mention it, and I would expect some external notification if it were related, but I've been told that the license needs to be released and reapplied if the OS is reinstalled... (Don't know if this would apply if one were running pre-licensing, tho...)
  5. Ahh, thanks for that extra info, @w3wilkes, I hadn't know that last bit re: reinstalling the OS. Good to know.
  6. Drivebender will find and identify your pool & its drives from their internal content, irrespective of connection changes. What you WILL need to do is release the license from its current system (not sure how it is identified to DB, but likely a combo of CPU, etc) before migration of the system hardware, reinstall DB (if necessary) on the new configuration, and re-apply your existing license to the new configuration...I'm pretty sure that's all that will be needed.
  7. Reminder to all: It's very useful for support folks or other readers if one includes the version of DB they are running, as well as the type of OS they are using, on their problem questions... It gives us all a "mindset" to where the problem is occurring, as well as a point of reference in case we know where a fix may already have been provided. Many find it useful to append their operating environment on their posts by placing it in a Signature File via user profile settings... (The only difficulty with this is to remember to update it when your DB or system level has changed! (Mea culpa!)
  8. Clients seem to run fine on Windows Technical Preview (aka pre-W10), but my DB is on a WHS 2011 server.
  9. Wilkes, there's a link in his post which in turn links to a statement (somewhere) from @thesmith indicating support, but I'd feel a lot more comfortable with a statement in that regard in these pages!
  10. Of course, with the 8-port card you'd have to get a couple of mini-SAS to SATA adapter cables, which aren't cheap... a couple of 4-port cards would be cheaper if you have the slots.
  11. @w3wilkes: Just clarifying, guess I'm getting to old and picky! BTW, you and the other helpers do a terrific job here. (I too am from the West, just transplanted mid-career.)
  12. <<For those of us constrained by American-English, "sorted" seems to mean "solved/fixed" in the Mother tongue's metaphor...>>
  13. Touch?! Corrected my personal oversight...
  14. Forum header says "Drive Bender v1.4.5.5 has been released." Should be "" if it's going to be kept specific...
  15. Thanks @JazJon, I've had that problem in the past with my TRM5B but hadn't pursued it further! I will rest easier with it in the future.
