StableBit DrivePool for Windows Home Server 2011 Beta released


- Advertisement -

There has been another beta build from CoveCube! StableBit DrivePool development marches on – now its version


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:

  • Folder duplication changes will now only perform a background duplication pass over that folder instead or the entire pool (in most cases).
  • Retired DrivePool’s folder size tracking. Folder sizes are now all reported using Windows Search.
    Folder sizes are not used by DrivePool for anything internally, they are only reported to the user.
  • [D] Implemented a 100% kernel mode file size tracking solution. It’s even faster than the old one and is directly synchronized with the file system.
    – Full pool access even while re-measuring. Size modifications are kept track of.
    – Keeps track of file size changes directly in the kernel with no user mode services involved.
    – Saves pool part file sizes in the pool parts themselves, so sizes will even migrate between OS re-installs.
    – Synchronized with background duplication (when changing the duplication level of a folder).
    – Synchronized with re-balancing.
    – Will need to re-measure the pool:
    – After removing a disk.
    – After accidentally unplugging a disk while the system is running.
  • [D] Retired hybrid kernel / user-mode real-time file size tracking.
