StableBit DrivePool for Windows Home Server Build 1836 Now Available
The latest beta version of the Windows Home Server Drive Extender replacement StableBit DrivePool build 1736 has just been released.
- Combine all your hard drives into one big storage pool (except the system drive with the OS).
- Add and remove drives from the pool at any time without re-partitioning or manually moving folders.
- Create duplicated folders on the storage drive pool that are protected against single drive failure. If a drive fails on which a duplicated file was stored, the contents of that file will remain readable even without the drive.
- All your data is stored in standard NTFS files. You can always access your files even if the Windows Home Server completely crashes or this add-in can’t be used.
The changes in this version are:
* You shouldn’t be able to perform repair tasks on disks that are not in the pool.
* After trying multiple notification techniques (WMI, Powershell, Direct WHS), scrapped existing notification system and rewrote it from scratch. All notification are now in real-time with no interaction from the clients. This fixes the client computer monitoring error. It can take up to 6 hrs to replicate the new settings to the client computers.
* Do not notify about incomplete files while a disk is being removed.
* Individual drive free space was actually the capacity.Download Stablebit Drivepool build 1836 here Learn more about StableBit DrivePool here
