Wow, this program has got to be 10 times better then FlexRaid. It's easier to setup and it actually works when the system reboots, rather then having to build the software raid EVERY time the system turns on.
For those of you who don't know, my home server was having networking issues, nothing fixed it shy of reinstalling Windows on my OS hard drive. Seeing as only my temp downloaded files go onto my OS drive before moved to my storage drives (or pool) reformatting and reinstalling windows wasn't an issue (backed up sickbeard, couchpotato and sabnzbd settings before doing this). I then installed Drive Bender, deleted the default pool it creates when you install it, after that I restarted Drive Bender and it found my existing storage pool, including all of its settings. I didn't have to do a thing, not make a new/recover a pool or add drives to the pool, all this was done automatically.
If you are looking for software pooling your drives or software raiding I can't recommend this product enough. It's on sale for 20$ and has a lifetime usage for the machine its installed on. If you need to move machines, you release the cd key on that machine and move it to a new one.
