  1. I have requested this feature in the past. I figure since DB sees all file create and delete within the pool it could easily do something like a SQLite DB type catalog of pool drives and files on those drives. It would then be trivial for a user to view this DB using SQLite Expert Personal. Seems that something like this would probably be a requirement for large commercial type installations.
  2. Sounds like you're good to go!
  3. Yes, both the pool drives and the laptop drive are physical 2.5" HDD's and locally SATA attached on their respective Mobo's
  4. Don't know for sure, but I think stopping and starting DB should clear these, or maybe a reboot of your DB computer.
  5. I've brought up how slow Drive Bender is to the developer before. In my case I have my music library on a DB Pool drive and duplicated, 2 2.5" SATA on the motherboard. I also have a copy on my laptop on a single 2.5" SATA internal 2nd drive. The software I use to play and manage my music scans all my music files and builds a database of Artists, Albums, Tracks, Genre, etc. I use the laptop as backup, both the server and laptop use the same software. Here's the stats from a full scan on each. Server; Laptop; As can be seen in the total time (last line of scan details) the scan from the pool drive takes almost 4 times longer than the scan from a non-pool drive. The only thing I can suggest is that you open a support ticket with the developer and you can reference this thread. Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support
  6. Wonder if you would be able to assign a drive letter using diskmgmt.exe?
  7. You might want to open a support ticket with Div-M too. This will ensure that Anthony gets this information. Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support
  8. Sorry to hear that you're having a problem. The only thing I can suggest is that you open a support ticket. And sorry that Anthony was unable to get @mcfloydsquared away, but I will mention that there is only one developer and he has been the developer since day one. He's in Australia and it's the weekend so it may be a couple of days to get a response. Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support
  9. I contacted the developer and he has not played with Win11 yet. he is in the process of getting DB v4 going and thinks it should be ready for beta in the next couple of months. He said they wait for the Windows releases to get closer to general availability before they get serious with compatibility work. As we all know beta software is a moving target, but thanks for the heads up.
  10. I was not aware that removing a drive would delete the data from the drive. Since it has a drive letter you should be able to look at the files on the drive and verify that they are on your pool drive. If this process is non-destructive (as I believe it is) it would make the process restartable in the event of one of your questioned failures types during the drive removal process. Of course @Anthony would be able to tell us whether I'm blowing smoke or not. ๐Ÿ˜
  11. Hopefully you've got some time left in the trial period. The developer is in Australia and is a one man operation. He will get to you.
  12. Don't know the answer. I'd suggest you open a support ticket with the developer. Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support
  13. Have you opened a support ticket? Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support (division-m.com) Be sure to include specific info. The developer will probably ask you to set some type of logging to collect relevant information.
  14. Are you saying your forum UID / password and your signin credentials on the support page are different??
  15. If you message Anthony (not a forum post) it is private so you should be able to send the order # via private message. It sounds like you may have recorded your key # incorrectly.
  16. I did contact the Developer and got a response. He said that if you don't put in your key you get the 7 days however, if you put in your key that's in use you will be given 90 days even though the key is currently registered to your old install. Hopefully Anthony has released your key.
  17. The keys are not OS specific. Since you reloaded with a fresh OS you should have received a full 7 day trial period in which DB is fully functional.
  18. Interesting, I was not aware that drives had an incorporated LED either.
  19. You should open a ticket with the developer. Not sure what a "SAS Card is flashed to IT mode" is?? Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support (division-m.com)
  20. Have you enabled Drive Idle in the DB settings? This is experimental, but is touted as a power saver so I guess it will down the pool drives when not in use. I understand why not to use the same drive as the system for a regular pool drive. However, Doesn't a LZ drive get cleared on a regular basis to make room for more data? I would think that primary (and duplicate folders/files) are pushed off the LZ to regular drives. There is a file loss exposure if the LZ drive fails, but this is the case regardless of whether it's a partition on the system drive or a dedicated LZ SSD. You can always open a ticket and ask the developer for some specific guidance on using a portion of the system drive as a LZ. Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support (division-m.com)
  21. Yes, the licenses are not Windows OS specific. They should work on Win7 and up.
  22. I don't know if the drive idle change is with the version since the release info in the Announcements section of the forums doesn't mention it. You could open a ticket and ask the developer. Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support (division-m.com)
  23. Have you opened a support request? The developer can tell you exactly what logging he'll need for your issue. Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support (division-m.com)
  24. Almost sound like the target drive has gone to sleep. You should open a ticket and see if the developer has any hints for you. Submit a request โ€“ Division-M - Support (division-m.com)
  25. Sorry I'm so late to your party. Have you checked the manual, it's in the DB program Files directory? In my own case the only thing I have on my DB drives is well known so knowing what's where is no big deal for me. It would really be nice if DB kept a "catalog" of files in the pool so that questions like this could be easily answered. I've submitted this as a request before. Maybe if we get more people to suggest it...
