i was mining fine with my 49hdds for the last 6 months and always using to the latest version. Since a week or so, i noticed it sees only 46 hdd and after 2 days only 33. I am using win 10 and chia 1.3.5. I checked in windows all hdds are fine and all files are readable. I rebooted. I removed all directories from the program, and started to add them again. It added them in 2s each until no 26. From there no matter which one of the rest drives i select, i doesnt do anything and remains like that. Even in confyg.yml i see it has only 26. I maually added the rest in config and still sees like before now only 245 TB out of 350TB. I did refresh plots and restarted the pc again. Nothing. I am afraid now to uninstall the program and reinstall it like i did 2 months ago to solve another bug, and it took me 10 days to sync it back! Please tell me you are not that behind with development and there is a solution to this without costing me 10 days again?
It was windows10 not Chia 135
last thing before closing this evening was to chech from disk management in windows as i once found that a disk wasnt seen in Chia and when i checked in Disk Management the mounting location instead of my c:\alldrives\2 was a recycle bin path with weird characters and i removed it and mounted it again in the same no 2 folder and it was ok.
Now last thing i checked again all mounting locations. All the drives mounted with letters were fine. However 6 of the hdds mounted in folders had no mounting location anymore even though i could see them in their specific folders! However in my c:\alldrives\ i still had 25 folders and each ware accessible and i could start to copy a file from each of them and it worked! Those were the disks with no mounting path but still looking in my computer as mounted fine:
Whenever i added the plot dir from the app it would get stuck at no 3 of course. I could continue to add others but the faulty ones didnt showed up in the list. I wanted to re mount all disks mounted in folders, but as i am lazy i did instead only mount the 6 faulty ones to folders starting with no 31 to 36. It worked. Now it sees again all my 350tb. In my computer looks like i have extra 6 disks as those 6 look like they are monted now in 2 folders but i can open a beer now and watch Spiderman :))
