  1. Why do drives spool up every hour?

    Without knowing what else runs on your PC, it's hard to hazard a guess. Check your Task Scheduler and see if anything runs hourly. What setting do you have for a screensaver? Is it set to start after an hour of inactivity? Loads of things could cause disk access. My disks are on 24x7.
  2. Pool passthrough to hyper-v vm

    A good question. Might be worth raising a Support Ticket.
  3. I just had to do the same with a failing 3Tb, but fortunately I had sufficient space in my pool, so I just force removed the drive, added a drive letter to it and then copied the files back into the pool. Once completed, I pulled the drive and replaced with a 6Tb. Job done.
  4. DB for Synology

    I'd raise a Support Ticket and ask.
  5. Why do drives spool up every hour?

    Balancing is controlled by you, via the GUI. See what it's set to and adjust accordingly. Also, check what else could be accessing the drives.
  6. Unless your primary and duplicated files were on the 2 failed discs, then DriveBender will re-duplicate anything that doesn't have a duplicate.
  7. I would do something a little different to w3wilkes's suggestion I would force remove the full drive from DriveBender. Then physically remove it from your PC and put in 2nd PC. Add the new bigger drive to the 1st PC, format it and add it to DriveBender. Then copy the content from old drive direct to the pool (across your lan). Only the content, not the DriveBender folders etc. Your choice of how you do it and then only if you're happy doing it all.
  8. Yes, that was a suggestion I was going to make based off the answers I asked for. Providing the OP is comfortable working at this level.
  9. No. DriveBender would think you had 5 drives in the pool with one missing and probably put it into read-only mode. Do you not have enough to room on the other 3 disks to take the contents of the disk you want to replace? Do you have another PC that you could add either the new or old drive to? There are options based on what your answers are.
  10. So you should be able to remove the drive letter for each drive, leaving just your mountpoint as P:, like you had before?
  11. Your mountpoint is P: isn't it? The others are drive letters aren't they?
  12. You could move your content to the root of each drive, delete the DriveBender folders, create a new pool and then add/merge the disks in again. Not a simple task, but I've done it a few times when things have gone wrong. I wouldn't recommend it if you not totally sure what you're doing. First up though, wait until the Support Ticket has been answered.
  13. Patch v2.8.2.2

    Famous last words [emoji23]
  14. Patch v2.8.2.2

    I would suggest that you raise a Support Ticket, do the the devs can take a look at your logs.
