    w3wilkes reacted to CBers in Restricting pool access to authorized users   
    Welcome edo.

    To be honest, I'm not sure what the answer is, as I only have single accounts on the servers where I run DriveBender.

    Have you checked the permissions within DriveBender?

    It may be possible to create a separate folder mountpoint and grant access to this mountpoint only to your HTPC user.
    Have you read through the FAQs for DriveBender - https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/categories/201693583-Knowledge-Base-Drive-Bender

    If none of that is possible, and in lieu of any other answers, you could raise a Support Ticket (https://support.division-m.com) and get the devs involved.

    Let us know how you get on.

    w3wilkes reacted to Dave in Well it took a while but Im converted at last.   
    Ok I have to admit that ever since the WHSv1 and then WHS2011 days I have looked at Drive Bender (and tested for a short while back in the day) but opted for DrivePool at the time. Now all these years later I have finally seen the light. 
    Drivepool has destroyed my carefully created and non fragmented archive drives for the very last time. Then having messed with Storage Spaces for a few days I abandoned that quickly. So it was time to revisit Drive Bender and I'm extremely happy. 
    "Cascade Mode" is all I have ever been looking for.
    Thanks Anthony.

    Have you rebooted the PC since setting up the DriveBender pool?
     
    Which version of DB are you using?
     
    There's always the option of raising a Support Ticket (https://support.division-m.com) and getting the devs involved.

    1- You should release the license for DriveBender on your old server
    2- Remove disks and install on new server
    3- Install DB software
    4- when you reboot after installing DB it should recognize the pool and all should be well
    5- reregister your DB license on the new server

    So all of your old drives are in the restored pool on your new server?
     
    You may have to remove the drive letter from the pool disks as for some reason, they get assigned a drive by Windows and DB doesn't remove it on a restore.
     
    Once all your drives are found by DB and the pool is restored, you can add new drives to the pool.
     
    If that still isn't working as you think it should, then please raise a Support Ticket.

    For some reason this periodically resets to a very bogus number. This time I have 14.34TB used of my 4TB pool! I've reopened a ticket.

    I've closed the ticket. No trouble found in the logs. I manually went through and turned on duplication for each the sub-folders that didn't duplicate. New sub-folders duplicate as they should.

    Problem solved. Anthony (DB) directed me to run HealthCheck on the pool and it fixed the pool utilization display discrepancy.

    w3wilkes got a reaction from CBers in Duplication Problem   
    I recently got rid of my small (as in MB size) drives in my pool and replaced them with two 2TB 2.5" drives. These are plenty of space to hold all my backups and a DB duplicated music library. My music library is comprised of a root folder of "MP3 Music" with subfolders for each artist and album folders for each album under the albums artist. I use Synctoy to copy the library so that folder/file date and times are preserved rather than being stamped with the time the data was put on the pool drives. Part way through the copy I realized that I needed to turn on duplication for the main "MP3 Music" folder so I selected the main "MP3 Music" folder and said to duplicate the folder and all subfolders. So far so good, the remaining folders/files of the copy were duplicated in the pool as they were copied. The next day after the copy was complete I looked at my "MP3 Music" folder and found that the stuff copied before I turned on duplication still hadn't been duplicated. At this point I manually set duplication on for the main "MP3 Music" folder using the all subfolder to be included option. DB churned for a while, but did not duplicate the non duplicated stuff. I then went to each artist folder that still showed as not duplicated and set duplication for the artist folder. This works for all the album folders under each artist.
    It appears that DB can't handle duplication when there's more than some number of folders/files greater than some amount (in my case it was about 12,000 songs across many artists/albums that needed duplication). Or was the problem something to do with turning on duplication for a folder while subfolders/files were being created in the top level folder?
    I have open a support ticket.

    w3wilkes reacted to CBers in Cannot delete pool file.   
    I have seen a couple of times that when you delete a file, it doesn't delete and then when you try again, you get the permissions message.

    Rebooting does seem to release some kind of lock on the file and it is then deleted.

    I would suggest raising a Support Ticket for the devs to investigate.

    w3wilkes got a reaction from CBers in Find all duplicated primaries in main pool   
    I would have thought that a reboot would have brought the drive back into the pool as long as it's still functional. In the case where you merged it as an existing DB pool drive I'm not sure what to do to clean up the dups. It would be good to open a support request.

    w3wilkes got a reaction from CBers in Primary files > Duplicate after removing hard drive   
    Sound to me like you have plenty of spare space that removing (or having a failure) a drive should be no big deal and the repair should do the job provided there's enough free space on the remaining drives to handle the amount of used space on the removed/failed drive.

    Not currently no.

    Perhaps raise a Support Ticket and see if there's any way of getting it added, as I have 2 pools as well and could possibly utilise separate settings.
