Add-In: StableBit DrivePool v2.0.0.332 BETA


StableBit DrivePool for WS2012 Essentials has been updated.

Version BETA has Windows 8.1 support, a duplication tag check and other fixes. Here’s the full change log:

  • Duplication tag consistency check now also works with legacy pools (pre 1.3).
  • Converted the duplication tag consistency check to a pool task. It will run when each pool arrives, and not on service startup.
  • Changed "Duplicating…" to "Checking…" in the pool organization bar when we’re not actually duplicating anything.
  • Added a comprehensive duplication tag consistency check and repair. Every time that the service starts up it will traverse all of the existing duplication tags on each pool and ensure that each tag on every pool part folder (and sub-folder) is consistent with all of the other pool parts.If a conflict is found it is resolved by examining both tags and constructing a new repaired and valid tag from the contents of the existing tags. Then both tags are overwritten with the repaired tag and a full duplication check is then scheduled to be immediately run over the entire pool.
  • Fixed a race condition in the code that was turning off CoveFS tracing. This was generating error reports needlessly for those with CoveFS tracing enabled permanently.
  • [D] Fixed memory leak when pool part find files errors out. This happened if one of your disks dropped from the system unexpectedly.
  • Incorrect disk names were being shown in the tooltips when the StableBit Scanner was not installed.
  • Performance UI now remembers its expanded state once again.
  • [D] When setting a duplication count, always write through the number to disk before considering the set successful (i.e. bypass the cache) (port from 1.X).
  • [D] Changed how pools are enumerated at boot time to get rid of the 1 second delay between when the virtual disk driver is loaded and when it spawns its disks (port from 1.X).
  • Put error handler around background duplication size change reporting (port from 1.X).
  • [D] Fixed drive removal issue where volume manager would not let DrivePool read the pool part ignore tag due to the pool part being marked for deletion. This would cause a removed disk to remain in the pool until a reboot (port from 1.X).
  • [D] Implemented MDL based read / write requests. Protected MDL writes are disabled.
  • [D] Fixed crash with race condition in internal buffer management, as reported.
