  1. Awesome, cant wait to see if my transfer speeds increase!
  2. I'm currently using a HighPoint RocketRaid 2680 for a JBOD interface, this card can support up to 8 sata drives http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816115057 However there is a newer one that supports 3TB drives which will probably be my next purchase. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816115100
  3. I removed the drive, then in Windows drive manager deleted the partition, recreated a partition with a quick format and set it to a new drive letter. I then was able to get it added to the pool with no problems. Not sure what the exact problem was but its working now.
  4. Yea, I did this a few days ago and my drive still says its pending drive add. Also when adding a drive to the pool I'm using the option to format it. Should I just try and remove the drive, then merge the drive back in? I just dont want to cancel the process if it will eventually finish.
  5. Well its going on day 2 and my third drive is still pending adding. I'm not sure if this is normal or not but I have 2 2TB drives in the pool currently and I'm trying to add a 3rd 2TB drive. So there has been a little yellow exclamation over the 3rd drive along with the drive state saying 'pending drive add'. Is this normal? Also my log files have continued to grow, I've got 8 100mb log or .sil files and the latest one continues to keep growing in size. I also cannot create or copy any files to the pool, it just says 'you need permissions to perform this action' Hopefully someone can help me figure out what is going on as I also have an open ticket for this issue.
  6. Hey w3wilkes, What type of drives are you using and are they connected to your motherboard or a separate drive card?
  7. I may have to try and disable Log Me In when I get home, I'm currently having an issue adding a drive to the pool. There is a yellow flag on the drive saying 'Pending drive add' and its been like that for over 12hrs now. I've also tried to copy a file to the pool and it says 'you do not have the correct permissions to do this'. I do have a ticket open for this, hopefully shutting down LMI will fix the issue.
  8. Actually WHS 2011 is based off of Server 2008 Foundation, which is stripped down a lot. My only reason not going with WHS 2011 is that it only supports 8GB of RAM.
  9. Sounds like I've got the same issue. I was never a beta tester so I have a new license and when I try to active it locks up the drive bender manager. I have to kill the process and then open it up again to see drive bender. I currently have an open ticket for this but the logs are reporting the error. So I'm not sure whats going on with it.
  10. I ran into this issues a couple of times but only when clicking their site from a search engine. After they updated their site it was doing a redirect to live.drivebender.com (i think) which now shows nothing. Anyways I havent had any issues recenlty.
  11. Ok that makes sense, well hopefully I'll be able to test some more file transfers soon and post some better results. Currently its adding another drive to the pool. Next test will be transfering a file from my OS drive to a 2TB drive not in the pool. Then the same file to the 3 2TB drives in the pool.
  12. So when you copy to a folder with duplication its twice as fast? Is this from within the pool or from another drive to the pool?
  13. Just curious, but I was wondering what everyone's transfer speeds are? Mine seem pretty slow and was wondering if its normal and want to know what everyone's speeds are. DB Version HighPoint RocketRaid 2680 with latest firmware 4 2TB drives Seagate 5900rpm (no raid) Transferring from one of the 2TB drives to the pool which currently has 2 of the 2TB drives = 25mb / sec. (Reason im moving files instead of merging the drive to the pool is because I want to be able to turn on duplication.) Going to test transfer speed from one 2TB drive to another 2TB drive not in the pool. Will post results when some files are finished moving. Do these transfer speeds sound right? System Specs: MB: Asus P8B-WS CPU: Xeon E3-1235 MEM: 16GB Kignston DDR3 OS: Win7 Ultimate - Raid1 on 2 500GB WD 7200rpm RocketRaid 2680 - MiniSAS 8087 to 4 2TB Seagate 5900rpm drives (non-raid)
  14. Ahh, I assumed when they said it would be officially released that it included everyone and not just beta testers I wish they would reopen the registration, I want to build my new server with WHS2011.
  15. I'm trying to figure out how to purchase DriveBender but cant seem to find out how? Per the website it says Is this something only beta testers have access to? Can I not purchase DB?
