Speed up file moves between pools on the same drive?

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that file move operations between pools take the same amount of time as one would expect when moving between drives. However, behind the scenes Drive Bender might be moving it from one location on the disk to another on the same disk.

If if both pools share the same drives and duplication settings, would it be possible to perform a "rename" operation instead, similar to when windows moves files on the same drive?

Right off the top of my head I wouldn't have a single physical drive (multiple partitions) be in 2 pools. If the drive fails you will have to recover both pools.

With that being said, it seems that copy (move) has to be done since this would be between partitions. I don't think you can have a single drive (partition) be in more than one pool.
