    I presume you opened a ticket as @CBers suggested in reply to your prior post. What was the reply?

    CBers got a reaction from w3wilkes in Old unsolvable I / O error problem still here   
    @JohnDoe Have you updated the ticket from #1 above, requesting further information?

    I would suggest raising tickets for #2 and #3, so that the developers are aware.

    Thanks.

    You will need a target drive to receive the data from the pool. The easiest way would be to have DB active so you can access your big "K" drive and then just copy from the big "K" drive to your target location.

    Once you've copied all your relevant files from "K:\" to another drive or PC, you can uninstall DB and just reformat the individual drives in the DB pool like any normal drive.

    CBers reacted to w3wilkes in Swap Drive Without Erasing Old Drive   
    I would think the @ruralcricket approach should work and leave the contents on the original drive intact. One thing I'd do different is stop the drive bender service before I did the copy to prevent drive bender from possibly altering the contents of the drive being swapped out. And just to mention that if DB has removed your pool drives drive letters you will need to use Diskmgmt.msc to assign drive letters so you can do the copies.
    You might also want to open a ticket and refer to this thread and ask the developer if this will work.

    CBers got a reaction from gethin in replacing (cloning) boot drive. ANy issues?   
    On a clean install, once you start DriveBender, It will see the disks that you previously had in a pool and ask if you want it recreated. 
    You say YES and it'll do it. 
    Nothing needs copying from an old install. 
    I've done this many times over the years.

    Just did this a couple of weeks ago. I did have to release my license and then re-establish it. Mine was a fresh install rather than a clone. As far as my pool went it made the transition just fine to the newly installed system drive.

    CBers reacted to Sulphy in Windows 10 build 20161 - DB service stuck starting - cannot mount pool   
    Update - So, i decided to try StableBit Drive Pool on another pc with windows 10 (Iron Branch build 20161)... and that also doesn't work. Reading their forums, same issues with newer Iron Branch builds...... guess we will have to wait until a new DB version comes along, or MSFT fixes it!

    CBers reacted to Sulphy in Windows 10 build 20161 - DB service stuck starting - cannot mount pool   
    Just curious if anyone else has had this issue?
    Updated to Windows 10 build 20161, the pool wouldnt mount, DB service is stuck on starting... so i yanked my ssd out, put a spare ssd in installed a fresh build of Win10... installed DB, attached my drives, and it found a previous pool, offered to bring it online... i said ok. Nothing happened... 
    Rebooted, and the DB service was stuck again. Deleted the mount point, and tried to create a new one. The DB service is running fine, but the Add mount point task is stuck on 0%... nothing happening.
    I have raised a ticket for this, but just wondering if anyone else has had this.. or knows how i can get my pool back.... this has happened to the last 2 builds of Win 10 insider...
    Worst case, i install the old ssd, and revert to previous build of Win10 that still worked.
    Edit: It must be an issue with the Iron Branch of Win10 then. old SSD has Manganese on it, build 19635 ... that works 100% fine. as soon as i hit the Iron branch... dead.

    You'll need to switch on advanced I/O logging for this particular case and then email the logs. All the details should be here:

    https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/333757012755
    Have you got an open support ticket? I expect you'll need one if not. To prepare you, these are the questions that were asked of me:
    What sort of file sizes are we talking about? Do you have enough free space on a/each drive(s) in the pool? Are you able to replicate this easily? How many drives do you have in the pool, and what is the free space on these drives?

    Just wanted to report back.  I got help from someone over at the Snapraid forums.  One of the users pointed me to this article to mount the drives into a folder.  Then, I enabled the setting within Drive Bender for snapraid and everything worked great from there!

    @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.

    Personal feeling is I've not really seen a performance difference between versions of DB, they're slower than JBOD copies. That being said you can open a support ticket and ask the question about stopping the copy / updating DB / restarting the copy.

    I'm guessing you really wanted this in the DB section and not the Anvil section??

    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.

    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.

    From either the Pool Management tab in WHS Server Folders or Drive Bender Manager after you've added the SSD to the pool click on the "Show detailed information and options for this drive" icon (furthest right from the drive) and in the dialog right under "File Placement" there's a drop down. Select "Landing Zone".

    Glad to hear you got it running. I was going to suggest you delete the drive configuration from the registry and reboot. Drive bender will tell you it's rebuilding from drives.

    CBers reacted to kim8 in Replacing drive in pool issue   
    All is well again! I went ahead and reinstalled DB and it indirectly prompted me to replace the old drive with the new one, and afterwards, restored the pool on its own. Another plus is now I am on the latest version. I was dreading this step but it turns out it was the most simplest way forwards. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.
