600px-Stablebit_drivepool_screen_thu[2]

  • 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:

1.0.0.3267 ———-

* Renaming a folder to the same name would make it disappear from Dashboard.

* Regenerating files would sometimes throw a null exception.

* Access denied on folder duplication change could un-share the folder.
