  1. as ghetto as this sounds, i dont bother with putting SSDs in drive cages. I hot glue em whereever i want em in the chassis.

  2. It's not like you have to worry about damping vibrations, I guess.
  3. Pretty sure there is a balancer for tiering, but I've never used it as I've all platters. :iono:

  4. With DrivePool, it would always be in the same spot regardless of its underlying disk location...
  5. drivepool does hardlinks or something?
  6. Advanced File System
    • StableBit DrivePool features CoveFS, an optimized file system specifically designed for disk pooling.
    • It has a virtually unlimited pool size (many Petabytes).
    • It's compatible with existing applications*, and is designed to function like NTFS.
    • It's a 100% kernel mode implementation. No user mode service dependencies or any such hacks are involved. It works like a real file system.
    • Advanced features:
      • Alternate stream support and extended attributes.
      • Full NTFS security.
      • Full Windows disk caching support. Read-ahead and lazy writer caching supported along with memory mapped files.
      • Full oplock support. Oplocks improve network share performance by allowing a network client to cache files on their end.
      • File change notifications, for applications that watch directories for changed files.
      • Sparse files.
    • Completely parallelized:
      • Reads and writes to duplicated files happen in parallel.
      • An optimized fast directory listing algorithm queries all the disks at the same time and combines the results in memory to return the list of files and directories, in real-time, as they come in from all the disks.
    • Zero dependencies on any external metadata:
      • Plug in any pooled disk to any system running StableBit DrivePool and it is instantly visible on the pool.
      • No special RAID-like format, no "tombstones" and no SQL-lite databases are involved. Everything is just plain old files.
    • Always shows the actual free space on the pool**. No need to reserve imaginary free space that you can't use.
  7. Did you remember the Hellman's for your AMD chip, @Valve1138 ?

    gee and my little brony gravied this.
  8. Dukes Mayo or GTFO.
    Mrs. Valve and Jehannum gravied this.
  9. Mr. Asa and my little brony gravied this.
  10. adi and my little brony gravied this.
  11. Are you sure @Duke appreciates being milked in that way?
  12. Yes. Yes I am.
  13. Better you than me, pal.
  14. Who doesn't like being milked?
    adi and Valve1138 gravied this.
  15. Im being milked right now!
    Mrs. Valve and adi gravied this.
  16. This joke was handled poorly
    Take your time and move things around til you have a joke with some teeth
    adi and fly gravied this.
  17. I find jokes without teeth are the best for milking purposes.
  18. @fly Have you messed around with Stablebit CloudDrive at all?

    I got a three pack of all their products for $60 and it's included. Looks interesting. I could have really important stuff synced automagically to one or more cloud storage solutions.
  19. I started to, but there was something that I didn't like about it. Can't remember what it was since it was 1+ years ago.
    Valve1138 gravied this.
  20. Trying the up and over. Every port and slot is still useable at this point.

    Now to try the drive cage.
