CBers reacted to edo in Restricting pool access to authorized users
I have received the following response from Anthony. Alas.:(
Hiding a drive letter based on the logged-in user is not possible, as the drive letters are mapped at the system level (and are not "user aware"). The only solution I can think of is to flag the backup folder as hidden... but then its not visible to anyone, but still accessible if you know its there.

CBers got a reaction from w3wilkes in Restricting pool access to authorized users
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.

That's sounds strange Marcelo.
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.
Keep us updated.
CBers 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.
CBers reacted to Spitzbube in Move Drivebennder Disks from a old to a new Server?!
You have right. Scan for Drives und delete the other Moundpoint solve the problem. Server now finish and works great with drive bender. Thanks for the help.
CBers got a reaction from w3wilkes 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.
CBers reacted to w3wilkes in Move Drivebennder Disks from a old to a new Server?!
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
CBers reacted to w3wilkes 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.
CBers got a reaction from w3wilkes 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.
CBers reacted to w3wilkes in Duplication - Setting to Ignore/Individually Configure Duplication
I would suggest that you also open a support ticket, sometimes the devs miss requests in the forum.
CBers reacted to w3wilkes 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.
CBers reacted to Anthony in Anvil has landed
It has been a while coming, but Anvil has finally landed! First up I need to apologise for the delay, we are well behind our intended release date... but so goes the software engineering game.
So, what's what? Well... the best thing to do is head to https://portal.anvil-fs.com and register. Once you've registered, you can install Anvil via the web interface.
To get up and running, check out https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000860976-Installing-Anvil-File-Security and then https://support.division-m.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000861716-Getting-started-with-Anvil (which, is incomplete... but I'm knackered).
Over the next few days, I'll be posting here and on the blog... in addition to writing up more articles on different aspects of Anvil, so stay tuned. In the meantime, If you have any question, direct them to support - https://support.division-m.com, and we'll address them ASAP.
CBers reacted to 1971camaroguy in I can't read or write to my pooled drive or folders
Anthony replied to me last night, there was some steps I could try in re-installing drive-bender that seemed to fix the issue.
Apparently there's a little bug, that he said someone else had issues with too
But I am good now
Thanks for everyones replies
