All shares are gone. Drivebender failing to start.

Recommended Posts

Installed the latest on WHS 2011.

Activated online with my purchased key.

Converted three drives to the pool.

Set duplication on some of the shared folders.

All seemed ok.


Tried accessing the shared folder from another computer. There were no shared folders anymore.


Ok, I though. Perhaps a reboot is required.


After the reboot the Drive Bender service just hangs on startup. All shares are gone as well as all drive letters.


Tried rebooting again, killing DriveBenderService.exe and manually start DriveBender, but nothing helps. The service just hangs on "Starting" for a long time before giving up. There are nothing in the eventlog except a message from the service manager DriveBenderService hung on start up and it has given up after a long time.


Uninstalled DriveBender. Added drive letters to the disks, re-added all the shared folder and cleaned up unwanted duplicated folders. So at least my server is back online without any missing files.


I could not have my server in an inaccessible state, otherwise I would have left it until I got some feedback.


Any thoughts?
