    Have read already from that. But I wasn't sure if drivepool work with mount points. Now I tried it and seems to work fine. Thank you you made me to try it ;)

    I use drivepool - I have about 150TB on one server driven through drivepool using mount points so all should be good :)

    Yeah drivepool works great. I used it for a bit with Windows Home Server 2008R2. I liked the interface alot, but I just didnt want to go all in for the software. Must say, they seem well organized, the program is stable, and the software looks beautiful.

    I use it in all my storage servers except my (FreeNAS box of course). Main reason is there is no scenario with Drivepool where you lose all your data. Also, Tech support is second to none. They stand behind their products. I have 5 licenses and about to buy another. At 30 bucks, it's a real deal.

    Ah, that cool Fritz. I debated between making it my main drive software for my data. After I started reading up on zfs, I eventually decided not to use it fully due to the element of no full parity. I must say, the software works great though and risk of loss seems low. I might re install on a small box in Win 10 and play with it again.

    Been using it as well, with 2 ssd cache drives + ssd plugin. Only thing missing is a option to specify a cloud drive as backup.... Using second pool with cloud drive & freefilesync as backup method for files...

    I originally looked at Storage Spaces but rejected it because I value my data. I then tried Drive Bender and ran into problems. tech support was all but useless so I dumped it and went to Drivepool. I really like the feature set and the fact that it's rock solid stable. it's also totally forgiving of drive glitches. More than once I had issues of some drives not showing up after a reboot. Drivepool will tell you if drives are missing but as soon as the drives show up, all is well again. There are no BS hoops to jump through like you have with totally inflexible MS crap.

    Also, Drivepool doesn't restrict you to same size drives like ZFS does.

    Right! that is a great feature of Drivepool. They allow different size drives. I thought that was cool of them to do, and that's smart too, because mostly everyone has multiple drive sizes.

    License is permanent right? I took a quick look at the website, and seems like they are running a discount total of $55 dollars for their StableBit bundle, that's all three products together (Drive Pool, Drive Scanner and Cloud Drive) Seems like a decent deal if you use all three.

    I remember at the time, I was looking at unRaid vs Drivepool and I remember thinking that if I had to choose, I would do Drivepool.

    If I had seen this earlier I would have gotten one to replace my MDS600.

    The seller that nephri listed above has dropped their price to $399 for anybody that is interested. Looks like there are quite a lot of them as well since more than 10 are available. According to the ebay page they removed the hard drives from these enclosures just like the EU seller.

    Could be a very good buy if interested.

    $429 - HGST 1ES0034 Drive Enclosure - 4U Rack-mountable - 60 3.5" Drive Bay w/ Carriers - got this seller to add local pickup.
    $ 399 - HGST 1ES0085 Storag Enclosure Rackmount - 4U60 60 x 3.5" Drive Bay w/ carriers

    TBH I want one of these fairly badly but am in 40" racks right now so they will not fit.

    Does anyone have dimensions with rails? Is it really 38.75 inches? That will hit a zero U PDU in a 40" rack. @Mirabis any idea about depth with just rails and without the cable management?

    Perhaps I should make that with a non-EU flag.

    I bought one off the $399 listing for a $300 OBO. The depth of the chassis gets quoted at 33.5" in the installation guide: http://www.colfax-intl.com/nd/downloads/4U60-Storage-Enclosure-Installation-Guide.pdf

    Going to have me a SuperMicro 45 JBOD vs. HGST 4U60 duel soon :D

    Sure thing, when it gets here I'll take measurements and put some pics up with it racked. I'm a little worried about the clearance with my 0U PDUs too...

    Only thing is no shipping info yet and it's crossing over to the East Coast ground, so it's not going to be here till next week.
