you don't have to hide the drive via registry you just don't give them a drive letter or remove the drive letter from disk management (drive pool access the NTFS volume directly not via drive letter) make a folder on C drive called drivepool and most add all your drives as folders in there so you can use snapraid on onto each disk not just the pool, as using snapraid on the the drivepool letter won't check the duplication drivesThis is exactly what i just did tonight. I wiped out my VM and reformatted the drives, then switched over to Drivepool+Snapraid. It was very easy to setup. Did a sync and a scrub on some files as a test. Then i created a registry key to hide the original drives in Explorer. Haven't automated syncs or scrubs yet, but I plan to.
