hard drive – How to get Windows Storage Spaces warning message

In what must be one of the stranges UX decisions ever, Windows tells me that one of my physical drives in a Storage Pool has a warning – but that’s it. Bad S.M.A.R.T. values ? Unstable read rates ? High error rate ? Nobody knows, and Windows does not seem inclined to tell me. Surely that information must be available somewhere, any hints ?

sessions – Private tempstore storage contains data for previous anonymous user

I have an issue with private tempstore storage that I wasn’t able to solve. I’ve implemented a webform handler, which populates data in this storage and then I’m creating tokens out of the saved values. This works fine, however, when anonymous user comes to page where token value is used, he/she sees last value saved in to the storage, before his/her session has been created.

This is strange, because setting a value for anonymous user should create a session for user, if it doesn’t exist, yet: https://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/core%21lib%21Drupal%21Core%21TempStore%21PrivateTempStore.php/function/PrivateTempStore%3A%3Aset/8.6.x Do you have any idea why this happens, please? Should I use module https://www.drupal.org/project/session_based_temp_store? Should I consider using Sessions directly (https://drupal.stackexchange.com/a/246268/7580)?

Getting 503 Service Unavailable on Google Cloud Storage requests

Google Cloud Status says everything is ok.

But it’s been past 30 minutes and I am getting 503 to my requests to GCS, read or write (everything was working before).

A sample url where this is happening: https://www.googleapis.com/download/storage/v1/b/hassets/o/s26%2Ffresh-props.json?alt=media

Is there anything I can do to raise an issue to google on this, or do I have to pay to get such support?

hyper v – Storage Spaces Direct and Virtualization Architecture

I’m trying to figure out the best way to architect a 2 node fail over cluster with the Hyper V role installed. I can really use some input and suggestions from others who have already been down this road.

All in, I have a 4 physical machines with Datacenter 2019 installed on each. On machine 1 and 2 I have installed 1 VM each and clustered them together as a network load balancer. This work great, no problems here.

On machines 3 and 4 I want to create a Storage Spaces Direct Fail Over Cluster. On these 2 machines I also want to virtualize many services in VM’s. Sql Server, A File Server, Email Server etc.

What I am not grasping is as follows. Should I create the Storage Spaces Direct Failover cluster on the Host level or at the Hyper-V VM level? Obviously I need the data replicated across both machines should one machine go down.

I am not sure what the best approach here is.

Thanks in advance.

Insufficient storage space & Insert SD card

I’m using a Meizu M6, and a newly bought Sandisk Ultra micro SD XC 64gb.
Internal storage is about 1.67 gb free out of 16gb.

For the record, I have already checked the wiki tags and similar topics, as well as format, remount, cache clear, and/or reboot, but none of them worked.

So my phone and desktop can detect my SD, but:

  1. everytime I tried to create an empty, new folder on my SD, it gave me the “insufficient storage space” message… despite being empty as a clean slate.

  2. everytime I tried to use the camera, it gave me the “insert SD card” message… despite being able to detect it earlier.

Yet I can create new folders and move items to my SD if I connect it to my PC with some card reader.

What might caused this? Any pointers?

file system – Images and Videos not loading after transfer from ‘Internal Storage’ to ‘SD Card’

So I moved my files from Internal Storage to SD Card. But after that I found the files having errors in loading both on my file manager and my gallery. I have tried deleting the .nomedia but it still won’t resolve. Can anyone please help me with this?
