tRAID on Windows / Re: Anyone upgraded to Windows 10 build 1803?
« on: May 24, 2018, 01:57:17 pm »
If you want to be safe, setup a VM and test there first before committing to your production system.

It is likely that you have a disk corruption. Could be just a sector or could a bit more.
The best thing to do would be to:
- Stop all arrays
- Hijack all your disks by giving them a drive letter each
- Run chkdsk on each disk

News and Updates / Re: linux (tRAID) release

No ETA. New release in the work though.

What issues are you having with the current release?

Is there any software you installed recently that you can think of that could be interfering?

Check the Windows event viewer for additional clues.

Expect some updates in a couple of weeks.

tRAID Bug Reports / Re: Scheduler strangeness

The sizes of the PPU disks certainly have no effect on the scheduler.
Certainly a coincidence.

This can happen during small data writes and is normal.
What likely happened is that a larger chunk of data had to be read for the read/update when only a few bytes of data were being written.

RAID-F on Linux / Re: Ubuntu Transport Endpoint Disconnected

How many files you do you suspect you have in the array?
If you have had the array for quite a while, rebuilding the parity anew will help out with too heavy fragmentation.

Are you referring to adding both volumes to the Pool?
Nothing should prevent you from adding both to the pool. So, do post screenshots of the issues you are seeing when trying to.

Tips & Tricks / Re: Adding drives with data - to a Hyper-V Flexraid
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:30:56 pm »
That should work just fine if the end result is a physical RDM as explained here:

I don't run Hyper-V to tell you conclusively if it is or not.
If Hyper-V hands you virtual RDMs (as opposed to physical), it will work but you will not be able to pull SMART information out of those disks.

Snapshot RAID / Re: Swapping out two drives at the same time.

It will be best to delete the current configuration, regain control of all your disks, create a new configuration with your new desired layout, and compute parity anew.

Which version are you on?
Is the Web UI still accessible when this happens?

Please check the logs for potential clues.

General Discussion / Re: New trial of TRaid - All previous data gone!
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:19:24 pm »
Great that you are back on track.

You can start the tRAID array with a smaller set of disks and expand as you go. See:
Note however that, rather than doing many RAID Expansions, it will be simpler to migrate your data unprotected to individual drives first and then create the tRAID array using those drives in one go. Basically, RAID Expansions/Contractions have a certain risk in all RAID systems. So, you want to minimize how often you do them.

You can request for your trial to be extended by emailing sales at flexraid dot com. You will need to provide your trial ID in the email. The trial ID is provided to you in the message when a trial request is denied on the Web UI.

tRAID on Windows / Re: How do I change the log level?
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:09:24 pm »
In the Web UI, select to edit the host and you will see the option to set the log level for the host.
It is likely set to TRACE. Change it to WARN or ERROR.

You can make those changes without having to stop and restart anything.
