I would love early access to this preview.  I have been having issues lately and have been thinking over moving over to a qnap system..would love to not have to do that!

Same behavior on Win 10 x64 as on Win 8.1 (accessing network share):

Folders are moved successfully, nothing shows up in the URB => desired behavior.

(Just for completion: Local target drive may be NTFS or ReFS, both works.)

1) In the Log-File the old version is shown "v1.0.0"
...
Which log file?

4) I noticed, also on the previous version, the SMART monitor option to "Enable" the Monitoring on a specific drive sometimes disapear. (see Attachment) If once configured all drives to enable this function, after a time some are not enabled anymore and I don't know why. Most of the times only my SSD keeps the option enabled, for all other drives the option is gone later the day. Currently all options are enabled as expected, but only on one HDD drive it is gone.
SMART will auto disable if querying the drive for it fails more than 10 times.

Very nice. So far, everything seems resolved except:

- In the dashboard (see attached screenshot), the individual files statistics of the discs have particular sectors permanently enlarged (e.g. the purple one for "HD103Server"). In contrast, the dynamic resizing occurring for the pool chart does not happen here.
- The readability of the individual files statistics is worse compared to the pool chart (maybe use the same design? This is not a bug, but a suggestion).
- After I had collapsed the chart for "HGST3", uncollapsing it gives my an empty panel as seen in the screenshot.

Sidenote:
The log file with the old version number is the NZFS Service Log:
"NZFS Service Start v1.0.0 2017.01.28"

I also still see slight rearrangements on the dashboard as described in http://bug.flexraid.com/view.php?id=388.

Despite that, as reported earlier, the data on the RAID Monitoring tab does not look reasonable to me, for I have mostly Read Update and always 0 percent Write Update.

The charts are all different and convey different information. This is on purpose.
The disk charts show both data size as pie chart percentage and file count as relative wedge size.

For the pool disk, the pie is different as it only shows data size percentages.

There is no way to control that on small screens. Readability improve with screen size.

Please add a bug report to the bug tracker.

Yeah, still unresolved.

That's a good thing. ;)
You want the least amount of Write Update.

A Write Update is one where the same data is being rewritten due to parity stripe alignment.

Just found a folder with 200-300 GB of files to be just empty. Any ideas on this or earlier posts regarding the same issue? Nothing in any bin and I surely didn't delete it.

Don't remember nor understand this issue.

A had a folder with some hundred GB of video files (only .mpg, no subfolders). Now the folder is just empty both when I access the individual tRaid drive and the pool.

However, if I sum up the amount of data in all folders, it's about 500 GB less than the reported used space of the tRaid drive. Looks like the data still is somewhere. Maybe I should look at the source disk?

Adding up the reported files after a file statistics run gives 2251 GB, the used space in the drive properties is 2.76 GB. The difference would be about the amount of files missing.

Just did a scan with ReclaiMe File Recovery: This tool shows all the files (526.8 GB) in the correct spot.

tRaid Log show does not show anything; permissions issue should also be excludable, as I'm using an administrator account and accessed the data just yesterday.

Note that filesystem is ReFS.
