    Beta v3.0.9.0

    Still good here - 2 days of backups, weekly scheduled backup cleanup successful and music server working fine.

    Beta v3.0.9.0

    I knew who it was, I was letting you off the hook. 😉 So far it's running fine for me. I'm waiting to see how Backup cleanup runs tonight with the 2nd round of backups on my PC's. For @spaceboy Can't say as I have no remote drives.

    Beta v3.0.9.0 up and running. I'll let it soak in the default configuration for a while. I'll make sure that the backups performed by my WHS2011 server running Drive Bender of my local PC's run successfully and also the weekly backup cleanup task runs successfully. @Anthony One question... I saw a previous mention of a user who installed and said they had a problem, they then uninstalled their prior version and then installed the new release. I've been under the impression that we had to first uninstall the prior version before installing the current version, has that requirement been dropped?

    DB creating folders with same name as existing file.

    Any chance you've installed the MS Windows 1809 fall update? Hope not. It's known to have errors. Some users have reported files/folders being deleted with that update. Other than that the support ticket is the way to go.

    Pool Statistics Empty

    I'm sure that the DB developer will want to know what diskmgmt.msc shows for your current physical drives.

    Pool Statistics Empty

    That almost looks like DB is looking at a bogus pool that has no drives defined. You should opena a support case https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    Drive Bender v3

    If I understand the blog correctly it sounds like I would be able to create a pool with just a single drive on my laptop for my data files and then I would have the ability to define what applications can write/update/delete the files on that pool by file type? My laptop currently has 2 physical drives, a small 128GB SSD for the system and applications and a 1TB HD where all my data resides.

    GBs of logfiles?

    You should definitely open a support ticket with this question https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new I would tend to agree that we should be able to shut this off.

    SONOS LIBRARY in Drive Bender Pool

    When you say you "indexed" your music folder is that a SONOS function, Windows indexing, from the local DB machine or a remote machine? Did you try it without indexing?

    SONOS LIBRARY in Drive Bender Pool

    I know little to nothing about SONOS, but I have my music library in my DB pool and access it using Logitech Media server with no problems. Does SONOS have restrictions on using a network drive. I do know that there's a limit on the size of a music library that SONOS can handle or have they now added an interface to go through iTunes?

    Pool showing up with two letters

    I think you can delete one of the pool drives using the Drive Bender manager using the "Remove redundant pool(s)". When you defined your pool DB would have removed the drive letters for the K and L drives so it should be just fine for Windows to assign K to another drive.
  15. Have you made sure you are the owner of the files / folders in the pool? Here's how to check and take ownership https://www.windowscentral.com/how-take-ownership-files-and-folders-windows-10

    Why do drives spool up every hour?

    Drive balancing isn't the only thing that will wake up the drives. Here's something in the DB FAQ's you might be interested in https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/333757024875-How-do-I-disable-all-internal-scheduled-tasks- Be sure you understand the implications.

    driver bender service @ 100% cpu

    The best thing to do is open a support ticket with the developer for guidance. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    Not showing proper space

    Moved this to the correct place. This was posted in Xtender... I've seen it take up to a couple of days to report correctly. Don't know why. If it doesn't straighten out you can open a support ticket.

    Temporarily remove drive to swap in new drive

    Since you have other PC's you can use why not just pull the drive to be replaced, put it in another PC along with the replacement drive and do a full copy of all contents from the old to the new drive, label the new drive to DB <whatever it was> and then put the new drive back in the DB pool machine and bring it up.

    Temporarily remove drive to swap in new drive

    I wonder if you could uninstall DB, remove one of the DB drives you were going to keep, install new larger drive, do a disk to disk copy of everything from the drive that is being replaced to the new drive and make sure to label it the same as the volume label of the drive being replaced. Bring the system down. Remove the drive being replaced and put the other drive back in. You should now have basically the same drive configuration you had when you uninstalled DB. Now install DB and then boot the system. Seems to me that this should work. I would open a ticket and run this past the developer to see if there's a "gotcha" here that I've missed. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new EDIT: I think you might have to unregister your DB software before uninstalling it and then reregister when you reinstall it.
  21. Have you uninstalled DB and reinstalled? This won't touch the data on the drives so it should be a safe thing to try. If that doesn't do it I'd really recommend a support ticket as I suggested earlier.
  22. Judging from the space used reported on your display it appears that the data is still on the drives. What does the folder structure on the DBn drives look like? What happens when you reboot the system? You might want to open a support ticket if you can't figure it out. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  23. There have been a couple of reports of a permissions problem in the last few days. I would suggest you open a ticket with the developer. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    This is the 2nd report of a permissions problem in the last few days. I would suggest you open a ticket with the developer. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    Disable Parallel Folder Structure for Landing Zone??

    Sorry, When you posted this and nobody had responded other than me on your other post I just figured you would open a ticket.
