RAID-F on Windows / Re: Latest Version of Raid-F?

Agreed, steer well clear of 2.1; I had to roll-back.

Very concerned that we've seen no bug fixes

Haha. Yeah. Thats right.  Further more, I wouldn't suggest you touch any of the 2015 releases as from what I have seen they all have some serious bugs..  :-\

RAID-F on Windows / Latest Version of Raid-F?
« Last post by stepmback on March 27, 2017, 01:33:03 pm »
I have not upgrade my version of FlexRaid in a couple of years.

Is this the latest FINAL version of RaidF -2.1 Final (2015-11-01)? http://www.flexraid.com/download-try-buy-raid-f/

Am I reading this right? This version is from 2015? No other recent updates?

General Discussion / Re: Failed Disk, attempting to replace

What's the best way to find the actual failed drives? I have 20 or more drives, i have a hunch of which 2 failed, but I don' t know how to find out for a fact.

Also, if I stop the flexraid, am i screwed? Will it loose the data of the failed drives?

I wish I could pay flexraid to fix all of this for me
This is the part where properly labeling the disks is critical.

You current options include:
1. Use the SMART feature.
2. Using the disk "Poke" feature (right-click on physical disk in Web UI and choose to Poke the disk) to identify working disks and work your way to the failed disk by process of elimination.

When I've run into that error before - I was just about to have a disk failure.  SMART didn't pick it up either.  The disk died a few weeks later. 

Interesting. So you actually were able to pre-detect a disk failure by file system corruption?

You have to delete it yourself and I'm not aware there is an upper limit on the amount it will hold.  I just go in there and hold shift and delete whatever is in there.  Today I deleted about 200 gigs.

Other than that - make sure to run verify/sync consistently.  Really you should have your entire Raid run through at least monthly.  I have 44TB complete every 10 days.

General Discussion / Re: Folder re-appears after deletion
« Last post by Method007 on March 25, 2017, 10:30:26 am »
In this case I mean stopping the Raid, rebooting, deleting the raid, giving the drives each a drive letter, accessing each drive (in an effort to try to figure out an unrelated issue I ran disk scan and defrag on each of the drives), remove the drive letters, reboot and rebuild the Traid from scratch.  I assumed because I was making a brand new Raid, my accessing the drives wouldn't do anything detrimental.  Let me know if I'm wrong on that.

Thank you for the reply on disabling the "Storage Pool Caching" inside of Storage Pooling Options.  Currently I have it set to "META_DATA_ONLY".  I will change this to "None" and see if that fixes the problem.

General Discussion / Universal Recycle Bin Questions
« Last post by sgrantca on March 24, 2017, 10:37:35 pm »
I have a few questions regarding the Universal Recycle Bin in tRaid.  I know where it is located on the storage pool, how to access it, and how to enable and disable it, but I'm wondering about the following questions:

1. What is the proper procedure for purging the recycle bin contents? (is just just manually browsing to the folder and deleting?)

2. What is the naming convention for files stored in the recycle bin? I've noticed that deleted files of the same name receive numbers padded to the filename.

3. How long are files stored in the tRaid universal recycle bin until they are removed automatically? (if it is automatic?)

4. How much space will the bin use? Is it a set or configurable % of overall storage pool space?

Thanks,

Shane
