    w3wilkes reacted to CBers in Change Log?   
    I'm sorry you feel that way.
    It's not a mess, just issues that can't be fully tested in a development environment, especially when new enhancements are being added.
    Whatever the issues have been, Anthony has worked night and day to fix them.
    You're on v3.2, so you're not that far behind.
    I am now running v3.6 on 5 different servers, all running without any issues.
    Anthony has posted about the "Recent issues with releases".
    I see you have posted elsewhere about Cloud Xtender, so I won't answer here.

    w3wilkes reacted to Anthony in Recent issues with releases   
    Hi All,
    First up, I would like to apologies for all the recent updates. The last couple of releases (mostly v3.3 and v3.4) of Drive Bender have contained a very allusive "Access Denied" error (this was a timing/cache problem exposed as a result of improving I/O performance). In addition to v3.2 having an problem with the FolderWall module not disabling correctly, and displaying odd errors... In all, we have not covered ourselves in glory 😬
    .We are confident we are on top of these issues now with v3.6, and will be looking at our regression testing, and making some changes to ensure we are delivering a better product to our faithfully users!
    For those that had problems... thanks again for your support and, in some case, access to your machines to help diagnose issues 👍

    Hopefully you meant Windows Home Server 2011. As far as I know there is no WHS 2010.
    On client computer backup it sounds like you have an error in your backup catalog. Have you tried doing a repair function on the client backup database? Here's a link with instructions for doing a repair.

    I have had an occasion a couple of years back where I ended up having to delete the whole client computer backup folder and re-setup the backups for my PC's since I was not able to get a successful repair.

    Have you considered upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 10?

    According to this page, DriveBender supports Windows XP, but you could raise a Support Ticket just to confirm.
     
    FYI, v3.4.0.0 has just been released.

    You should open a support ticket and ask the question regarding switching drivers. You should also include the info about DB being much slower and refer to this thread. The place to open a ticket is;

    Be sure to let us know what DB says.

    With this type error I would hope that you've opened a support ticket;
    https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
    They will probably give direction on setting some log levels and have you submit logs with the recorded data.
    Not an excuse, but the developer is in the Sydney Australia area and may be hampered by the devastating wildfires.

    I've got an open issue on this. I think the problem is that DB is expecting to see the Anvil product which is separate. I've not seen any problems though.

    There is a new version of DriveBender available, v3.2.0.0.
    Anthony will announce officially once the website has been updated over the next few days, but he asked that we let all users know.
    The new release is available from here.

    Did you try doing the old fashioned Control Panel -> Programs and Features and then do the uninstall from there? Did you reference this thread in your ticket? I can't speak for the response, but Anvil isn't their only product. I think the developer does this work part time and where he is in Australia it's currently the weekend.

    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.

    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

    w3wilkes reacted to CBers in Move Drivebennder Disks from a old to a 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.
