  1. Drive Bender crashes several times a week. Here's one entry from the application logs: General: Faulting application name: DriveBenderService.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x557959a9 Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.2.9200.17366, time stamp: 0x554d16f6 Exception code: 0x0eedfade Fault offset: 0x00010192 Faulting process id: 0x%9 Faulting application start time: 0x%10 Faulting application path: %11 Faulting module path: %12 Report Id: %13 Faulting package full name: %14 Faulting package-relative application ID: %15 Details: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event"> <System> <Provider Name="Application Error" /> <EventID Qualifiers="0">1000</EventID> <Level>2</Level> <Task>100</Task> <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2015-07-06T15:11:39.000000000Z" /> <EventRecordID>30875</EventRecordID> <Channel>Application</Channel> <Security /> </System> <EventData> <Data>DriveBenderService.exe</Data> <Data></Data> <Data>557959a9</Data> <Data>KERNELBASE.dll</Data> <Data>6.2.9200.17366</Data> <Data>554d16f6</Data> <Data>0eedfade</Data> <Data>00010192</Data> </EventData> </Event> any ideas? Thanks!
  2. With v2.3.7.0, my home server still crashed when trying to do a file balancing pass. But it worked with v2.3.8.0! Hooray!
  3. hehe, excellent. I see that the change log that I was viewing now has a redirect link. http://www.division-m.com/drive-bender-change-log.html I'll update and see if that helps!
  4. I have v2.3.0.0 installed. There's one later version available, but there's no entry for it the change log.
  5. okay, I've scanned all of the drives. Then I re-enabled file balancing and did an on-demand balance. The whole server cashed again. Here are my notes from the scans: Upper 2TB - Check, fix errors, an surface scan - no errors DB1 - Check, fix errors, an surface scan - cleaned up 89 security descriptors on step 3, no other problems found DB2 - Check, fix errors, an surface scan - no problems DB3 - Check, fix errors, an surface scan - no problems BD4 - Check, fix errors, an surface scan - no problems
  6. My home server is crashing. At this point, I've narrowed it down to happening only when Drive Bender balances files, when it actually starts to move files. I disabled file balancing a few days ago, and have had no crashes since. But if I enable balancing and do an on-demand balance, I the server will crash once it starts moving files. What can I do to further diagnose (and hopefully fix) the issue?
  7. Thanks to the both of you. I ended up doing it through the manager. It's processing now! A design note: With their down arrows and position above a list, "Pool Options" and "Mount point options" look like column headers, which I guess is why I didn't even see them or perceive them as dropdown menus.
  8. I ran a file health scan, which said that there were some orphaned files, and that I should run a pool repair. I can't find the feature. I found this help article: http://files.division-m.com/drive_bender/online_help/repair_a_pool.htm It says that it's in "pool dashboard, under advanced settings", but I can't find that either. I'm running Core version v2.3.0.0. Could someone help me find the feature?
  9. Well, I did start a ticket, and luckily there was that trial key on the main download page (which eventually worked). But really, the software shouldn't behave this harshly when the copy protection fails. I also shouldn't have to contact Division-M if, say, my server crashes and I need to reinstall Drive Bender.
  10. I am very angry, and suppressing the use of expletives. Drive Bender deactivated itself. It says that my existing key isn't valid. So after a lot of wresting and Drive Bender crashes, I eventually restarted the computer, and now it accepts that the key is valid, but won't reactivate because it is already activated... on that computer. Really? Is that how Division-M is going to treat its customers? First the software fails, and now I can't fix it myself? This is people's *data*. You can't have your software forgetting that people are entitled to access their own data. Of course, Drive Bender also unmounted my pooled drive, which confused the file synchronization software that I'm using, so that will be a headache when Drive Bender is working again. Plus I have users' folders pointed to the drive pool, so my server is paralyzed. This is not acceptable.
  11. That doesn't seem to be compatible with Windows Server 2008 R2.
  12. I've been doing more things, and the problem is definitely in the rapid deletion of folders. I'm not sure if it's relevant that the folders are nested, but I could see a strong case for that being important. I ran another (partial) sync of a my documents folder, which attempted to propagate the deletion of hundreds of nearly empty nested folders, and the process only got do a few hundred. I pressed cancel, and came back later (an hour-ish), and everything was back to normal. However, on the off-chance... what's some good S.M.A.R.T. related software? Could Drive Bender have these kinds of diagnostics built in?
  13. I don't suspect that one of the drives is malfunctioning, since I had no problems with Windows Home Server. The nested folder structure that I'm describing is the .metadata folder of an Eclipse workspace. I deleted them from one computer, and then synced the result to the drive pool using SyncToy, which deleted each folder (300 per workspace at maybe 5 workspaces) individually.
  14. I've been running an intensive file copy of gigabyte-size files totalling 3TB, and so far it's doing perfectly. Before the transfer I added a 3TB drive to the pool, so I saw the 3TB drive fill up until it's free space was equal to the other drives, and now Drive Bender is continuing it's algorithm (as I have surmised it) to put a new file on the drive with the most free space. Super cool! Anyway, it's been working all day, but what's the cause of the problem?
