No more "Explicit" storage pool merge mode???? Help.
« on: January 03, 2018, 05:29:20 pm »
I've just updated to version [2.1-Final-2017-11-22] and am having issues with starting drive pooling. Since 2012 I've been using Explicit merge mode with my own, custom directory structure in there. Now there is no option for Explicit mode, my storage pool isn't starting (the UI gets stuck on the progress window when I click on "Publish/(Re-)Start" button.

What has happened to Explicit mode? Any way to switch that on, resurrect it? I have way too much relying on the folder structure I've built.. Urgently need help.

Edit: found other posts of people complaining about Explicit mode being removed. Well, this sucks. I now have to try to go back to 2012 version and hope it installs OK after I removed newest one.

P.S. I would really recommend not simply removing functionality, but moving it into "advanced" section..

Correct. Explicit Merge has been temporarily removed.
Too many non-advanced users were troubling themselves with it too much. It will be brought back later in FlexRAID One.
