Reducing Cache Pool To 1 SSD

Recommended Posts

I am having lots of issues with my VM stuttering and showing 100% disk usage in W10. I have already tried a full format of the vdisk and new install of W10 with no improvement. I have also tried Ubuntu install and same issues with stuttering etc. I have run Trim on cache and no improvement. I have 2 SSD's in my cache pool both 240GB. I ran balance stopped array and removed one from pool, now I have 1 but it is showing as unmountable. Please advise.

Did you consult the V6 FAQ sticky at the top of this subforum? Lots of good stuff there about managing cache pool.

I followed the instructions and went back down to 1 SSD cache and I am still having issues with my VM. I am not sure what else to try.

If your cache is unmountable you will either have to try to repair its filesystem, or format it.

The cache is fine, the instructions worked. I am still having issues with my VM as per the first post. I went back to 1 SSD to eliminate the 2nd newer ssd being the cause of the issue.

Perhaps the disk allocated to Windows 10 really is full? Why do you believe it isn't telling the truth?

I was thinking of the vdisk because you've presumably confirmed that the SSD has free space on it. But either would be a problem, of course.

They both have space available. The vdisk is 100GB with a fresh windows 10 install. The SSD is 240GB and has room to spare.
