RAID-F Feature Requests / Return to old sharing mode in Flexraid 2.1
« on: September 29, 2015, 12:55:20 pm »

Can the old folder sharing mode from 2.0 become an option again? I do not want to share the whole flexraid pool using cruise control in version 2.1. I would like the ability to select which folders I want to share and share them only.

Thank You,


I am running the 9-24-2015 2.1 release. I have setup 2 shares via windows (properties/sharing/share/share) on the storage pool & backed up the storage pool shares in the cruise control home screen. Unfortunately after restarting the PC,  the shares are not configured anymore. Is there something I am missing?

This is a Win7 pro x64 PC.


Snapshot RAID / DRU4 has failed or is offline--except it is fine
« on: September 24, 2015, 03:06:54 am »
Hi All,

Since switching to version 2.1, I am receiving the following error message when trying to update: DRU4 has failed or is offline, Please bring it online or recover it. The drive is online, I am able to browse to the data on the drive.

Troubleshooting I have applied:

1) Ran a check disk on each individual drive in the array
2) Copied large files to each drive in the array to see of there was a difference in throughput (which there was not).
3) Tested each of the seagate drives with seatools-nothing found wrong.
4) Deleted all existing parity off of my parity drive
5) Recreated Parity

I am still receiving the warnings after recreating the parity.

I have attached the most recent log. Can you please advise?

Thank You,

Snapshot RAID / Recycle Bin, snapshot RAID--Newbie question
« on: June 07, 2012, 05:07:26 pm »

I have been reading on the wikis concerning the recycle bin in snaphot RAID.  In Understanding the limitations of snapshot RAID, we are told that we must have the recycle bin enabled and do the deletes from the storage pool, otherwise we will not be able to have a correct recovery (bad parity data).  In my attachment, the recycle bin is set to false--I did not change it from the initial cruise control setup.  I am assuming I need to change this to true.  Are there any more changes regarding the recycle bin in flexraid that needs to be done?
  How about the normal recycle bin properties (desktop)?  Any modifications that need to be done there?   I currently have the flexRAID recycle bin set to false & the normal recycle bin set to automatically delete anything on the storage pool permanently.
Once again, please confirm the settings on both recycle bins.

Thank You!

Snapshot RAID / Stop Storage Pool before an update

Do you need to stop the storage pool before a scheduled or manual update with snapshot RAID?

Thank You

Snapshot RAID / Stop snapshot update
« on: June 05, 2012, 08:54:00 am »
I have a snapshot update that has been running for a long time (8hrs).  Not much data has been changed since the last snapshot. I would like to stop the current running snapshot & recreate the parity drive.  Can someone explain how to do this if it is possible?


Storage Pooling / slow write speed to storage pool
« on: June 03, 2012, 06:20:15 pm »

When copying or cutting a file to the storage pool, i am only getting a speed of 15MB/s. Before a created the storage pool, i was getting 26 MB/s?  Is there a workaround? This in on a WIN7 machine.

Thanks Newhaven

Snapshot RAID / Flexraid PPU
« on: May 14, 2012, 12:37:26 pm »

I am new to flexraid--so please bear with me!   According to the flexraid wiki how to's your parity drive only needs to be as large as the largest DRU?

I am using 2 3TB hard drives in a storage pool (I was planning on making each a DRU).  Each has 1.20TB of free space.  I want to use the snapshot raid portion of flexraid.  Before I purchase the drive, i would like to verify the size of the drive.  According to my current understanding, I would need to purchase one 3TB drive to use as the parity drive, correct? OR am i missing something?

thanks for your patience--Newhaven
