When adding an initial drive to a storage pool I get the error "incorrect function"
System: Proliant ML110 G4, Windows 8 64-Bit, 4GB Ram
I have a 160GB drive installed on the motherboard's controller which hosts the OS. I've installed a single 2TB drive on a 2 Port PCI Express Internal SATA II Controller Card (JMB36x). As soon as I create a pool using the 2TB drive I get the error "Incorrect Function" and the drive becomes RAW.
The drive id's are unique. It's worth pointing out that the system without the new controller can only support 2TB max of SATA drives, but this is bypassed by the controller card I added?
Windows 8: I have 4 drives assigned to a raid1 and a raid0 storage space. A power plug broke off of one of the drives. I ordered an exact replacement hdd pcb for that drive. It spins up, bios sees it, I'm 100% sure no damage was done to the data as the drive was off when the power plug was broken. windows sees it but storage spaces thinks it is a new drive. So spaces is still showing the raid0 offline and raid1 in lowered resiliency mode. I am assuming something on the logic board, maybe hdd serial# or guid or something is now different for the repaired drive.
In powershell if there is a way to tell storage spaces that the repaired drive is in fact the one that it thinks is offline?
I've been using storage space for around a year with pool and raid functionality and I just realized the numbers don't add up... I have 7x 2TB all parts of a single pool with parity. Now here's the numbers:
Physical space: 14tb Storage Space size (user set): 12tb Used Storage Space size (according to windows explorer): ~6tb Used Storage Space size (according to storage spaces): ~9tb Individual drive used % (according to storage spaces): ~75% each
Storage spaces tells me to add a drive, low capacity... So I know how normal RAID5 works and it really shouldn't use 50% of the total used space as shown by the numbers above (6tb + 3tb assumed to be parity = 9tb). Also, if I need to add another drive, this means I'm almost full at 6tb/14tb?! This is worst than MIRROR RAID...
I am setting up a new home PCServer and decided to use Win 8.1 since I needed to upgrade to at least Win 7 Professional to use Disk Mirroring. Now I find out Win 8.1 has Disk Mirroring (From Disk Management Console) and Storage Spaces.
My question is which one is better and faster. I just want to mirror two drives (RAID 1) to store my pictures so if one drive fails I have a copy. I'm not interested in expanding this or adding drives that Storage Spaces seems to support.
I setup a parity storage pool with 2x500GB drives and x1 1TB drive then started transferring data, i noticed that they were getting full so added a 4TB drive and carried on transferring data however the x500GB drives are full and it will not let me transfer anymore data(currently about 2TB) the 4TB drive only says 18% full. Is there a configuration or command to move the data around the disks so they are all the same percentage eg 60% full? I have since tried moving data off the pool then transferring it back but I'm not sure its making any difference to the way the data is stored.
I have x1-500gb x2-1tb x3-2TB and x2-4TB drives with about 12TB of data i would like to store. Am i better off having multiple Pools with matching drives ?
I've just been migrating data to my new Storage Space on Windows 8. I had to do this in stages because I had a limited number of disks available to me. I had 2x 2TB disks in a nas box, and wanted to move them to a new server, and also added 2 more 2TB disks. Due to the nas being quite full, I started with a 4-disk pool consisting of 2x 2TB and 2x 500GB disks, and made a parity space.
My process was as follows:
Create parity space with the 2x 2TB and 2x 500GB disks Copy all data from one of the disks in the nas to the space. Remove 1x 500GB disk Allow the space to repair Add 1x 2TB disk from the nas into the pool Copy the contents of the other nas disk to the space Remove the 500GB and add the 2TB Allow space to repair
The space is thinly provisioned at 4.85 TB which is what the GUI defaults to when I create a new parity space using all 4 disks. (I don't actually create the additional storage space). This is also what I calculated it to be (1.81*4*2/3).
Now the end result is very uneven disk usage and a low capacity warning, despite having what I think is about 57% total utilisation!
Here is a link to a screenshot of the space's setup:
1) why it thinks there is low capacity?
2) How can I rebalance/redistribute the data evenly over the 4 disks?
This video tutorial demonstrates how to clean install the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, which was released to the public on February 29, 2012 and expires on January 15, 2013. The Windows 8 Consumer Preview is an open beta test presentation of Microsoft Windows 8, the successor to Windows 7 and next-generation client operating system from Microsoft Corporation.
In this demonstration, you will be shown how to free, legitimate copy of the Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview, with product key, and install the operating system in a clean environment. In this video, the installation of the 64-bit version is demonstrated.
I'm having trouble getting windows 8 to detect my RTL8188CU after installing the Windows 7 x64 drivers from realtek on Windows consumer preview. I had the exact same issue in developer preview and I was unable to solve it. I'm not sure wether doing a fresh install would solve issues rather than an upgrade to keep personal files.
I have Windows 8 consumer review installed on a dual boot machine with 2 SSD's. I am using a mouse and keyboard. How do I put a quick start icon for Windows Media Player on the desktop, not on the task bar or on the metro screen. Windows Media Player is not currently installed on Windows 8.
I am working at a desktop pc with Win 8.1 installed. When typing, spaces appear randomly (also in the middle of a word - it is not as if the space key had got stuck). Nevertheless I got a new keyboard but the same problem occurs. I removed the keyboard driver - did not work. The keyboard is not wireless, plain USB. Seems though, as if the fault appears only in programs of the MS office suite.
how to dis-associate the file associations in "all my storage" There are associations that stop me from associating my own files. I have a hunch it's a way to make you buy the full version. what a croc microsoft.
I have an installation file of windows 8.I downloaded, its name "Windows 8".I want to know which version of windows 8?(windows 8, windows 8 pro, windows 8.1 or windows 8.1 pro).I want to find product key before installing it.t
I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Windows 7 and noticed my USB 3 WD Passport external hard drive stays powered on as well as my round LED's (Lock/Start/Reset). With Windows 7 I just enabled EuP in the bios and that powered everything down when I shut down including the LED's. Now with Windows 8.1 that function doesn't work. They all stay on. I tried disabling all the power functions in Power Management for the USB but still, the power stays on. For some reason the EuP enable function does not work like before. I believe its related to Windows 8.1 since it worked fine with Windows 7. For some reason they locked USB power after shutdown.
PS: I already tried resetting the bios to no effect.
I am looking to make some adjustments to my system and have been advised to use the "Change PC Settings" button on the charms bar. I do not have touch screen so all my taps are with a mouse. When I open the gear icon on the charms bar all is ok and all choices are shown. The only one that doesnt work is "Change PC Settings". When I click on it nothing happens except a small jump of the screen.
I built a very high-spec gaming PC last August and installed Windows 8. I upgraded to 8.1 later and did not experience any problems until I needed to reinstall Windows 8.1 in February in order for USB devices to function properly (restoring or refreshing Windows 8.1 wasn't an option because that function is currently broken (sort it out Microsoft!!))
Since then, a unique problem seems to have developed. My CPU is an Intel-4770k, so when I first boot up the PC from shut down, or when I press the hard restart button on my computer case, the computer boots up very quickly and with no problems. However, when I click 'Restart' from Windows, the interface shuts down, and my PC remains active, but nothing else happens for a good 2 or 3 minutes. After that time, I see two red LEDs on my motherboard flash (I guess that is the PC posting) and the computer starts up.
I am clueless as to why the Restart function has such a massive delay. I followed the steps on one thread which told me to go into msconfig and disable all start-up applications and to do the same in task manager, but after doing so and restarting my PC, the problem persisted. (The thread : [URL] .... )
I want to disable my function key abilities completely so games or other apps can use them normally. Windows seem to take over these functions with the stuff like brightness, sound, turn airplane mode on/off.. what i need is a registry hack or something to to fix this. There is a app in control panel that allows you to access some, not all of these functions.. Windows Mobility Center - but still you cannot turn them off at all. I do not need or want any of these features on my function keys.
These are shortcut keys manufactures started putting on keyboards a few years back.. They used to be called Multimedia keyboards - these functions were never standard for a keyboard. I feel like MS has some nerve taking over my function keys like this in a way where i cannot easily turn these off.
have a Registry hacks section. I used to use another forum - forgot it's name for use with XP.
My computer lock-up after 2 secs log into windows (due to drivers problem). I need to boot my computer to safe mode directly and use driver sweeper to fix the problem. However, I'm not able to get into safe mode. (F8, Shift+F8) doesn't work neither.
How to change Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation ISO to Windows 8 Enterprise? Because i think that the Evaluation is very annoying, thought i couldn't activate it in anyways. How to change it? I don't want to download the new ISO again.
I am currently running win 8 with a pool of drives configured in storage space about 10TB. I want to build a new computer with Win 8 and move the current drives to the new computer without losing the data is the possible?
I bought a legitimate copy of Windows 8 Pro Upgrade version about a month ago. While doing a clean install on my desktop computer, I found out that you cannot do a clean install from an upgrade version of Windows. I figured out how to do a clean install of Windows by following the steps on this website: [URL] .....
When I open the Windows Store App, I can't find the option that lets me update to Windows 8.1. Is there anyway I can legitimately update my copy of Windows to Windows 8.1?
