StableBit DrivePool for Windows Home Server 2011 Beta 184.108.40.20678 released
There has been another beta build from CoveCube! StableBit DrivePool development marches on – now its version 220.127.116.1178.
Here is how CoveCube describes this application:
- 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.
This beta version’s change log:
* Sometimes VDS was being queried too often.
* After removing a drive, sometimes a full duplication pass was scheduled. This is not necessary unless you specified to duplicate later in the remove wizard.
* When DrivePool creates new partitions, it will now properly align them on sector / cylinder boundaries. This was a problem when formatting advanced format disks and was caused by a bug in one of the Windows APIs (IVdsPack::CreateVolume).
* Added option to switch the unit type of the file distribution bars on the folder detail panel. 3 unit types: * By Bytes * By Disk Usage Percent * By Percent of Shared Files Not shown for folders stored on a single disk.
