Will have to reserve judgement about this. Using an add-in to address basic storage issues seems a little risky to me. However, if this puppy works, there will be many very happy v1 people out there.

I will probably go to the Dark Side and set up RAID5, but might very well use this type of pooling as well to use old leftover disks.

I wish the developer well and hope this works out!

Jim

I have been testing Stablebit Drive Pool with an EX485 using an E5400, 4 gig of memory, EX495 Modded Bios and WHS 2011. The system after some starting problems has become very stable. I have copied over 3TB of data including movies and have been using the system to playback movies on Windows 7 MCE and it is going very well. Not all the function is in Drive Pool yet but it is looking more and more promising. Right now it seems much better than WHS V1 as far as performance and function. I have put everything in the pool except the system 60 gig C: drive which right now gives me 6.5 terabytes of storage with the potenial to go to 12 TB using 3TB drives without any external drives. I have created folders in the pool and have some duplicated and some not. The developers are very responsive to issues and provide fixes very quickly that are effective. Much more responsive than the average Microsoft issue. Don't get me wrong - this is not the place to be if you can't afford to lose your data but I'm sure when testing is done you will all be very surprised at the stable nature of the system and function that will be much easier to use than WHS V1.

Have you had any issues streaming videos?

I finally set up WHS 2011 this weekend. Don't know whether I am going to test out Stablebit or Drive Bender first

So far all I've done is opened up large blue ray movies from windows 7 MCE and played them and they play flawlessly. Usually with WHS V1 there is some studdering on occasion depending on whats going on with the server. So far with WHS 2011, I have seen no problems at all.

Good to hear. I will test out Drive Bender first and see if I can get the same results with streaming my BluRays
