    Network Drive as Part of Pool Issue

    Ok, I need a diagram. A) You have PC1 that has some local disk, a landing zone disk/ssd, you have also used the "Add Network Drive" feature to include the NAS in the pool. B) you have a NAS that is part of the pool. C) you have a Radarr box that stores it's content on the pool using the Pools drive letter. I don't understand why the Radarr box is even looking at the NAS. The raddar box shouldn't know that it's writing to the landing zone as that is DB's job to manage. This is what I'd do. On PC1 lets assume the DB pool is assigned drive letter P: and the raddar content is to be dropped into P:\downloads\raddar\ If you haven't already I'd create a user ID on PC1 for the raddar process e.g. raddar_user. I'd then create create a share called PC1\Raddar by going to the P:\downloads\ directory, right click on the raddar folder and select "give access to" or Share (depending on the OS), lets call this share "raddar_drop". I'd give the PC1 user raddar_user full acesss. (I'm limiting it to the p:\downloads\raddar folder so malware is limited to the raddar folder on PC1. Back on the Raddar box, I'd configure radar to access the \\PC1\raddar_drop share and use the user/pw for pc1\raddar_user for authentication. So during the writing of files to the PC1 box the network traffic will be Raddar-box > PC1 but later after the landing zone clears (hours latter) the traffic will be Radar-box <-> PC1 <->NAS.

    DB creating folders with same name as existing file.

    Nope, still on 1803
  3. Running v2.8.0.0 on Windows 10 Pro. I've submitted a support request, but wonder if anyone else has seen this? I'm getting an error report from DB: The Drive Bender server (Z420) has sent the following notification: A folder is missing from one of the pooled drives. - FolderName: "\{FB7F0C47-7844-40ED-BCD9-16A5D8756DBF}\DL\fonts\Font Collection\Font Collection.zip". This is the 2nd time the pool has generated a FOLDER on the pool drives for a file. I do not have any duplication enabled. I've attached the DriveBender log screenshot. It is clearly trying to create folders with the same name as the .zip file. The pool view shows just an actual .ZIP file.

    GBs of logfiles?

    I thought I'd share my stats. Some files are very old! File Type Total Size (Bytes) # of files BalancingAudit 131,660,860 11 BalancingQueue 122,365,643 11 db.sil 809,987,510 10 HealthMonitorAudit 7,519,760,428 11 Grand Total 8,583,774,441 43 Row Labels Max of Date Min of Date BalancingAudit 11/27/2017 11/26/2017 BalancingQueue 11/27/2017 11/26/2017 db.sil 6/13/2018 6/12/2018 HealthMonitorAudit 6/10/2018 4/6/2018
  5. Drive Bender doesn't keep a database of files in the pool. There is a function to check duplication status. I think the only way to do this would be to get a directory listing of the current pool and your backup and compare them. On your local pool it could be as simple as Dir /s /b /a:-d | sort > sortedfilelist.txt

    Temporarily remove drive to swap in new drive

    Added to what w3wikes stated, you could disable the DB service instance reboot. the pool should be gone but the drives visible. Since your drive 1 is to be replaced, shut down and remove one of the drives 2-4 and replace it with the new larger drive, and reboot. Copy the content of drive 1 pool folders to the empty new drive. re-enable the DB service. shut down and swap out drive 1 for new drive put in the removed drive (2-4) boot. you should be good. If you are not, you can still put back old drive 1 and be back where you started.
  7. Do the drives still have the {nnnn-nnnn etc} folders on them? Why did you issues the remove command?

    Drive Bender 2.8 Normal CPU Usage?

    Db sometimes has higher CPU when managing any io. Servio may be doing indexing or media lookups. I have Plex on my db box. I'll check later when I get home.

    Landing Zone Disk Size checks

    Did you review the setting in balancing? The default is to clear the landing zone once a day or when it gets to disk full %. I thinkmyou need balancing enabled as well (but not sure). I bet the landing zone needs to be larger than the largest file.
  10. I needed more SATA ports so I added a Dell H310 raid controller, flashed to IT mode. All the disks attached to it are recognized by the OS and by Drive Bender, but Drive Bender's SMART software is not seeing the SMART data. I also had this issue with Crystal Disk Info, but resolved it by enabling ATA Pass Through. Using command line smartctrl.exe from www.smartmontools.org using the command -d SAT enables smart data collection. e.g. smartctl -d sat -a /dev/sda or smartctl -d ata -a /dev/sda Any way to enable ATA pass through? The HDSentinal site says the H310 is compatible: https://www.hdsentinel.com/compatibility_disk_controllers.php Also the trial version of HDSentinal Pro does report the drives attached to the Dell H310 card.

    Dialog box spamming

    I agree. I think you should also post this in the Feature Request section. I'll up vote for you!

    copy of files stops after 2 GB

    No, i thought the op is on a windows insider build. But I'm wrong anyway as 1709 isn't insider. My bad.

    copy of files stops after 2 GB

    Ok, you are the 2nd person reporting issues with the latest insider build. Do open a support ticket.
  14. Yes, open case. Just noticed you are on the latest insider build. https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2017/12/19/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-17063-pc/#d28WAIm5cFGfFCiF.97
  15. Gonna need a bit more info. First, you should not have lost any data as the files will still be on the underlying drives. You may need to enable viewing of hidden files to see the {xxx} folders the are the pool. What version of DB are you using? I'm on and have no issues o. Win10. Can you check the Windows system & app event logs for errors during install and start up? In Services, is the Drivebender service running?
