Add-In: StableBit DrivePool v1.3.0.7534 RC


The beta build of StableBit DrivePool has had an update for users of WHS 2011, SBS 2011 Essentials and Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials.

Version RC has the following changes:

  • [D] Fixed CoveFS update reboot reminder not showing up sometimes.
  • Fixed folder / drive detail panes not showing up sometimes.
  • Optimized the Windows Search query algorithm to get folder statistics quicker, for folders with a huge number of files.
  • Offloaded the non-pooled total folder size Windows Search query onto the background value provider.
    It was generally very fast, but sometimes not instant, which was causing a slight delay in the UI.
  • Added background computation and caching value providers. Implemented folder pie chart computation using the new value providers. A folder pie chart computation expires every 5 minutes.
  • Finalized all translations.
  • Optimized WPF animations for terminal services. May reduce Dashboard CPU usage by a factor of 10 on low-end systems, when showing animations.
  • Optimized animations to reduce unnecessary WPF rendering cycles.
  • COM continues to pump paint messages on the UI thread when it’s waiting on a lock. This was a change introduced in Vista to minimize deadlocks. This causes a deadlock if a paint message results in the acquisition of the same lock, on the same thread, which is very possible. This is now turned off to prevent random Dashboard freezes.

[D] = Driver was modified (reboot required after update)
