If you ran the Update task while on 2.1, you will need to rebuild parity if going back to 2.0.
So, delete the configuration, quick-format the parity disk, and reconfigure anew.

I personally, think you should have stuck to version 2.1. What's causing the pool driver to not properly update will eventually be found.
In fact, if you go forward with 2.1, PM me with access to your system to have a look.

I would have stayed on 2.1, but i cannot get the pool to start and therefore have no access to my files. I can't afford to have much downtime. When a fix comes in place i will gladly implement it. Just for reference i am running the following:

Windows Server 2012 R2

Hardware:
Asus B85M-G (https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/B85MG/)
Intel i5
32 GB RAM
5x Western Digital 3TB RED drives (2 bought a little over a year ago, 3 within the past few months)
   3 DRUs
   2 PPUs
1x 250GB SSD (OS)

Provided the re-create works i will just stay posted on the updates to 2.1 and implement it later.

All those affected, please state:

1. What OS?
2. Do/did you have a Paragon product install/ed?
3. What disk tool you have installed (Acronis and others)?

okay getting "Step 0 install has failed" when trying to start pool...figuring this may have to do with driver install

Also pertinent info...when i upgraded to first version of 2.1 my password and username no longer worked and it had just defaulted to empty password and username

Now my username and password are needed again

PM me remote access if possible.

The latest release now properly migrates login, email configuration, and few other things that were missed.

to keep you up to date...i will save trying pool again for a complete reinstall of the os...I went to do a parity calc since it didn't run last night due to scheduler losing its schedule...kept on giving me a dru 2 is unavailable...definitely was still there and i run two different smart tests on it and its fine.  Downgraded back to 2.0 and other than the background and formatting for the web ui being messed up, parity calculations are working again.

Windows Server 2012 R2 latest updates, as always.

I don' think so. Does not ring a bell.

I only have Acronis Drive Monitor installed as far as disk monitoring goes.. but i have had it installed before i put flexRAID on my server a year or more ago.

You are using the old driver. The very very old driver. Don't.
In the Web UI, go to the System Control panel and find the option that speaks of using the old driver and disable it.
You will also need to delete all current Pool or CC configuration as they are now bound to that old driver.

1. What OS? Windows Server 2012 R2
2. Do/did you have a Paragon product install/ed? No
3. What disk tool you have installed (Acronis and others)? I am making use of Intel Rapid Storage RAID 1 system drive, Microsoft Storage Spaces for another RAID 1, Veeam Endpoint Backup for the system drive.

Will try the new update when I have the chance.

Installed the 2.1 R2. Same issues persist. Able to start pool, but doesn't show in explorer.

Question: If I manually uninstall the driver through Preferences and Settings > Storage Pool Merge Configuration, should I not be able to Start Storage Pool?

I ask this because I did that, and I was still able to Start Storage Pool. Both before and after a reboot. Just throwing that out there to help troubleshoot our issue.
