  1. Basically I'm going to have to use a split system - DriveBender for my non-virtual stuff and then MS Storage Spaces for my virtual world. Really not the way I wanted to go
  2. Because it's now down to the last drive in the pool then I think the only way forward is to uninstall the DB software, add a drive letter back on to your drive (so it displays as normal again) and then cut/paste the directories back into the root of the disk. Although it sounds quite a lot to do, it's actually very easy and only takes a few minutes or so (the files don't actually get moved as it only has to update the FAT entries on where the directories are). NB. Just a small "gotcha" though - after you've moved your files back into the root directory, you may have difficulty deleting the
  3. Although I am very happy that time and effort is being spent on new products such as the Cloud Extender, I am also disappointed as, on the face of it at least, it seems that effort is now being spent there rather than on outstanding "tricky" items such as VSS support. If DB manage to crack VSS (and although I know it's difficult, there are enough products out in the market place to show that it can be done very successfully) they have a huge selling advantage over the competitors. Purely on a personal basis though, I need to understand whether VSS is officially dead or not so I can sta
  4. Release the license on your current server - move the drives and install DB DB should recognise the pool(s) on the drives and re-attach everything correctly Once you are happy everything has worked ok then re-apply your license key
  5. I've gone for an LSI card in mine but this one is definitely cheaper and seems to have some good reviews. Cheers for the heads up!
  6. Merry Christmas to everyone too! Thanks to Anthony & co for the hard work on DB giving us a great piece of software and hope we all have a fantastic 2015 ... and that DB gains VSS support, obviously! (Sorry Anthony - couldn't help myself )
  7. ... and yet another for the "working well" group
  8. Yes, ReFS is supported http://support.division-m.com/entries/22836386-Is-Microsoft-s-new-Resilient-File-System-ReFS-supported-
  9. I know it doesn't help but still @ 160Mb this morning here so pretty stable for me it seems (the pool is accessed for both read and write 24x7)
  10. Running 2170 here and currently @ 160Mb on my server. No idea if that's good/bad/changing though ... will look again tomorrow morning and see if it's different!
  11. I don't think DB puts a drive to sleep, it's just the OS and drive settings themselves (and possibly the controller?) that do that, I.E. if there's no access to the drive for more than x minutes then it will sleep. However, there are a number of things that can stop a drive going to sleep - the drive itself (you may need to change the settings on the drive to enable power saving), the OS (check out the power saving settings section) and then potentially any application software that could be accessing information on the drive (including DB - especially the balancing settings etc.)
  12. Nice script ShaRose - very useful!
  13. Aha - that sounds more like the set up I want. I'll go away and see if my motherboard supports TPM 1.2+ - cheers for the heads up!
  14. This was one of the blockers for me too - if I used TPM I couldn't see the point in the encryption anyway (although TPM seems to protect against someone removing the drives and trying to do something with them, if someone simply steals the whole computer then it would boot up and allow access?) and if I used a USB Stick then I'd have to keep hiding the USB after each boot and hope the potential thief didn't steal it as well as the PC
