Build 1665 of StableBit DrivePool is available for Windows Home Server 2011.
This beta release of the Drive Extender replacement, includes the following changes:
- Expiration updated.
- Drive removal now takes priority over open handles. This means that if a file is open with no proper share access, that file will be force closed if the drive removal task needs to work on it. This is contrary to the old behavior of the drive removal task being safely aborted.
- Read-only files on duplicated shares would prevent drive removal. Not any more.
- When there is any kind of I/O error during drive related tasks (e.g. Drive removal), display the file path causing it.
