StableBit DrivePool BETA Build 1588 M2

Announced back in February StableBit DrivePool for Windows Home Server 2011 is now in open beta.

StableBit DrivePool Hard Drive Pooling

StableBit DrivePool is an add-in replacement for Drive Extender, which as we know was removed in WHS 2011, and provides the following features:

  • 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.

WARNING: This early BETA has the potential for bugs. Because of the nature of this add-in there is potential for data loss. Only serious testers should consider downloading and installing this current BETA build.

Your data integrity can be compromised with this test build. Use at your own risk, and only with non-essential data!.

If after this warning you are still going to beta test StableBit DrivePool, then you will need to prepare your system to collect crash data in case of a system crash, and you can download the add-in for WHS2011 from here.

Thanks to WeGotServed for the heads up.
