Add-In: StableBit DrivePool v RC

StableBit DrivePool for WHS 2011, SBS 2011 Essentials, Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials, Windows Server 2012 Essentials and Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials has had an update.

StableBit DrivePool v RC

Version RC has the following change log:

  • Added DE, ES, FR, IT, PL localizations.
  • When adding a RAW disk to the pool it would disappear from the disks list for a bit, which looked odd.
  • Pooled disk list was not being resorted automatically.
  • Creating partitions was failing on x86 systems. As a result, adding a blank disk to the pool was not working. This was due to a bug in .NET’s COM interop. A workaround is now in place.
  • Do not show the performance UI when creating a new pool.
  • Fixed issue where error reports were being written out after updating.
  • Before duplicating a file, update the task status so that the correct folder is shown in the tooltip.
  • Minor file duplication service tweaks related to the timing of things.
  • When clicking save on the balancing window, the overall settings are saved first before each balancer’s settings are saved. This is to ensure that any changed triggers and the balancing time are processed correctly with the new settings.
  • Added UI_NoVersion to the UI .config. This will hide the version number from the UI, which is useful for taking demo screenshots / videos.
  • [D] Changed the part of the read striping algorithm that passively calculates the speed of each disk to work correctly with concurrent I/O.
  • [D] Fixed synchronization and a division by zero error in the read striping disk selection algorithm.
  • [D] Fixed crash due to race condition in file create.
