Hello, I am trying to switch to DriveBender, but having some serious problems. I've googled around and can't find anything, but hopefully this is a quick fix. I have all of my source files on a single 4TB drive, they total about 2.8TB. I created a pool of 2x 2TB + 1 1TB and copied them over. After the copy they totaled ~2.9 TB in the new pool. I then turned on duplication for another 990GB in the pool and let the duplication processes finish, then restarted the pool. Now the pool shows a way smaller size than expected for primary (lower then expected), and also a high non pool size (which I would expect to be zero). non pool - Expected: 0, Actual: 2.21GB primary- Expected ~2.9TB, Actual 1.5TB duplicate- Expected 990GB, Actual 21.89 GB If I open the pool in windows explorer and manually size the files, it returns the correct size (~2.9TB), so it's' mainly the pie chart in the Drive Bender client that is wrong. It is still incorrectly impacting the free space because of the inflated non-pool usage. Is there a fix process that I can run to put it back into order? I've tried repair and validate. In fact, the validate runs every time the machine restarts, I'm not sure if that is normal. Thanks for reading.
Hi folks, first of all I have to say that Drive Bender is a fantastic tool and has been the ultimate solution for building my home server some years ago. I spent much time in planing and came to the solution that the features Drive Bender offers me a superior than any raid mode. Anyway I have some questions, but first my setup: Setup: Win 7 64 bit (Sandisc SSD), 8 GB RAM, Intel Core i3 T, 18xHDD (Seagate, WD, Hitachi = 71,8 TB net), one mount point with drive letter X, balancing every 30 mins, duplication on everything History, which leads to my questions: I have built up the server approx. 3 years ago and have been adding a new HDD from time to time. I have always used Drive Bender v 184.108.40.206 and have never done an update (never touch a running system) because everything was fine. Some days ago, I had to merge a drive because the server case is full now and I replaced an old 3 TB drive against a new 8 TB drive. I have only used the "merge-function" from Drive Bender and everything seemed to be good. After the new drive has been in and the old one has been out, I decided to perform an update to v 220.127.116.11. Then some strange things have occured. From that point on, Drive Bender showed me newly added Data as "non pool used" space in the stats. I don't know why and how to end this. I fear that balancing and duplication won't function correctly with this data in the "non pool used space". So that's my 1st question. The new Drive Bender version does almost anytime a pool health scan. My HDD space is huge so that takes some time. In Windows I have set the drives to spin down after 15 minutes. But that does not take any effect at any time. I think Drive Bender prevents the drives from doing so. I would like to spin down the drives (power consumption is around 150 Watt at any time), so what could I do? There does not seem to be any option to set the interval for doing a pool health scan in Drive Bender? That's my 2nd question. After the first pool health scan has been finished, Drive Bender gave me a notice that there would be approx. 94000 orphaned files. I don't now how this could happen and what that means for me file safety. I am doing a pool repair at the moment I'm writing you. Hope that will fix this. So that's my 3rd question. In the old Drive Bender v 18.104.22.168 I had set the balancing mode to aggressive. Is there any way to do so in v 22.214.171.124, there seem to be only some time intervals like 5 minutes ...? That's my 4th question. Drive Bender allows me to do file duplication. I use file duplication for the whole drive letter X, so everything is duplicated with every child folder (I hope). Is there any way to set the interval duplication? That's my 5th question. v 126.96.36.199 offers me this new "landing zone" feature. I can set a time interval but don't understand how to determine the landing zone. So that's my 6th and last question. Many thanks in advance and excuse me if my English is wrong at some place. Many greeting from good old Germany. Regards. Kim Petersen
