Another day, another new beta version of the Windows Home Server Drive Extender replacement StableBit DrivePool released – this time its build 3262.
- 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:
* Fixed the annoying issue of folder names being upper cased. This fix should stop it from happening in the future.
* Fixed bug in code that takes a file out of service.
* Incomplete file repair task now correctly detects files that were out of service and were brought back into service. It now correctly removes the out of service tag.
* Out of service files are not repaired.
* Incomplete file repair task now correctly repairs incomplete directories as well (they were being detected but not repaired). Security / attributes / access times / alternate streams are of course preserved across repairs.
* Fixed unduplicated file detection to not throw up an error if the file part being opened is taken out of service.
