  1. @gethin No reason why you can't stop and restart the copy of you're doing it in Windows/File Explorer. I'm running v3.7 on my 2 servers without any issues. The latest versions have a faster enumeration of folders, so you may well see a speed increase.
  2. Not sure why an SSD would drop out as a landing zone, as I have one in my system. I would raise a Support Ticket and ask the developers. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  3. FWIW, I upgraded from v3.6 to v3.7 on 2 separate servers without any issues.
  4. There is this 3 year old post, but doesn't really tell you how to set it up: https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000392423-What-is-SnapRAID-mode-and-how-does-it-work- Alternatively, you could raise a Support Ticket: https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  5. Can I suggest that you raise a Support Ticket to ask that question. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  6. Can I suggest you raise a Support Ticket, as there may be something MS have changed/added that may conflict with DB. https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  7. Yes, you can remove it manually. Might be worth raising a Support Ticket so that the devs can ask for any logs surrounding the issue.
  8. Glad to hear you all back up and running.
  9. I would uninstall DriveBender, then reboot and start the DB install again. If that still doesn't work, then uninstall and remove all entries in your registry relating to DriveBender, then reboot and reinstall. You can map letters to your drives via Disk Management.
  10. Apologies, the GUID folders aren't hidden. In the root of the drive, you should have 1 folder and 3 files. The folder is where your content is stored. You could move everything from that folder to the root of the drive, then delete the folder and files, so all you have in the root of the drive is your content. If you do the same with all of the drives in your pool, then you will be back to before ever creating a pool. Delete the pool from the DB UI and reboot your PC. Then once it's back up, start from the beginning again, create a pool and add the drives one by one to it. This is how I have done it in the past when DB got "corrupted". Hope that helps.
  11. You copied all of the hidden GUID folders that reside in the root of the drive? This is the manual way of swapping drives: https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/214025823-How-do-I-manually-remove-a-drive-from-the-pool- I would first have tried to SWAP the drive via the UI, but looks like you've gone past that. You could delete the pool, move the content on the drives to the root of the drive, remove the hidden GUID folders and then start afresh, by creating a new pool and adding your drives one at a time to the new pool. That's one way of getting it up and running and something I have had to do a few times, but it all depends on how confident you are and know exactly what you're doing.
  12. Did you follow the procedure for swapping a drive, or do it within Windows? You should have added the new drive to the pool and then removed the old drive, which would have moved the contents and then removed the drive. You may have to out the old drive back into your PC and restart and see if the pool comes back. How many drives do you have in the pool, without the new one?
  13. I've had the "requires admin" message a few times myself iver the years and a simple computer reboot seems to resolve it. Which version are you on?

    SMR Drives?

    I lieu of a response from Anthony, you could always raise a Support Ticket, but I doubt there will be any issues.

    Beta v3.6.5.0

    Thanks Anthony.
  16. @oj88 Once you release the licence on your old server, the pool will stay online until you reboot, and even then, it may still run for 60 days, as that is how long the evaluation licence is for. When you install DB on the new server, you will again have 60 days evaluation until you have to apply the full licence. So really, you could set up your new server, move the disks and utilise the 60 days, without having to release the licence on your old server, just in case you need to move back. When all is OK on the new server, then release the key, wait for the support people to release it and then apply to the new server.
  17. You can force remove it once you've pulled it from your server.
  18. Nice to see another Emby user here 😀 You would need to have ANVIL installed on each PC in the chain and only permit certain programs access to certain folders. You can run ANVIL without DriveBender, they are separate products, but DriveBender does have a Folderwall built-in now, so you probably don't need Anvil on the PC running DB. Hope this helps a little, otherwise it might be worth raising a Support Ticket. Could you not consolidate the process onto one PC ? Just a thought.
  19. I have asked Anthony to respond to your comments/questions.
  20. 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.
