I was getting jet.jit.cache errors related to flexraid somehow, i was running an old version from 2014 so i installed the latest.

I assumed it would auto scan my system, i looked for my key before i installed the new build.
Brahim, can you PM me and find my key by my email address, full name, etc.

That key is buried under 5 years of emails.. Im not sure why there's not just an option to update.

btw im running whs 2011.. ive been up and running without an issue since 2014, the last 3 or 4 days my server has crashed to a non responsive state and i need to power off and restart

it wont even allow me to use the program as a trial, wtf

i followed YOUR wiki directions to just uninstall the old program, install the new one.
thanks for the heads up that my server would get fucked in the process.

why design a program that cant store its own key or update itself?
really pissed off that i cant even run a trial


i guess i need premium support to get a simple question answered around here.

i guess i need to clone my OS to another drive, remove the ssd to simulate a failed drive, then see what options i get.

but as far as replacing my 4tb ppu with a 6tb ppu then using the 4tb as a ddu after i format it.. dont wanna risk losing that backed up data..
but if i understand correctly it wont matter cause once i chose the 6tb as a ppu, id rebuild the entire array
maybe then i can remove the partitioned drive myself.

alright then
i'll figure this out myself :)

Sorry if this question has been answered many times, i find flexraid pretty confusing still.. Ive had a full purchased version for maybe 2 years now, but never any real issues that have forced me to figure out how to use it.

Im running low on space again, i currently have 4x4TB hdd's, and rather than add another 4TB to the pool which ive done before.
Id like to add a 6Tb> hdd and make that my PPU drive, then allowing me to use the current 4TB ppu drive for storage, and until i need more space, then i can add 6TB after that.. since the ppu cannot be smaller than any drive in the pool.
Im pretty sure this is simple enough, and i just need to rebuild the pool..

Also, i made the mistake of adding a partioned 50gb drive space into my pool, and i cant seem to remove it. Its the remaining space of my ssd which has WHS 2011 on it.. so if i ever need to change that drive.. i know i shouldnt have added that 50gb partition into my pool. But i did, oops.

thanks for any help

edit: also to note, im using cruise control, and i cant physically remove the drive i want to remove, since its a partitioned piece of the OS ssd.. maybe i can just format the partition in drive manager? theres really nothing on it that im worried about losing, but it would be nice to see/know how to remove its contents onto a drive with space.

I tried that..

Let's say they're hdds A, B and C..
C is parity
B is full
A is free

Only c and a show up currently after spanning b into a
I need to have another look. I didn't get to spend much time on it as I'm out of state now.

I noticed I was missing files. But they were still on a physical drive, so I assumed it was a pooling issue.

It was either cause by media browser, plex or flexraid, I'm not sure nor am I pointing fingers at all.

But I need to fix more of a user created problem now.

I use 3 4tb hdds, one parity and 2 ddru
1 hdd is 90% full, one is barely full.
Problem is I spanned them into one trying to fix my missing files issue.
This only made me lose 90% of my files.
But the drives still full so it's still there.
I was going to physically remove the drives, plug in externally and try to manually fix it. Like copy the entire contents to a bare drive and start over.
I'd rather an easier fix.
So if I try to do a new configuration now, I only see 2 hdds obviously
Can I "unspan" what I did?
