Thank you everyone for testing the BETA. Information on a DrivePool discount for existing BETA testers will be available soon.

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.

  1. Exceptionally well designed program. Works as described. Seamless integration into the dashboard. Flawless technical support (at least during BETA). Cant wait for final version.

  2. Been using Drivepool since November now in my WHS 2011 box. I have it managing 9 drives in a pool (all my shares have real-time duplication enabled) and it has been an awesome experience.

    One of my favorite parts is the recovery. I have messed up some stuff on my server several times, and re-installed the OS. To recover all my data and shares I just re-install Drivepool, reboot the server and in seconds it recognizes all the pool drives and is up and running again. Another very nice feature is that all the data is stored in the actual folder structure on the drives. If anything were to ever go wrong with the server it is SUPER easy to simply hook the drives to another PC and access any data on them. As someone who tries to keep my PCs and data modular this is something I really appreciate.

    Additionally, it has been very fast and stable for me. While there were some minor hiccups in the beta, they were very quickly fixed by Alex, so I would have to say support will probably be top notch for this product. Also, as far as transfer speeds go, I can copy files to the pooled drive just as fast as copying to a non-pooled drive. This may seem small, but since all the pooled drives are being duplicated in real-time, it is actually duplicating the files at the same speed the non-pooled drives are writing only 1 copy of the file. So, imo, performance drops are a complete non-issue with the current M4 release.

    If you have been hanging around on WHS v1, I think the WHS 2011 + Drivepool combination is easily as good if not better. I would highly recommend trying this product out, as it is very stable now.
