Programatically detecting when WHS is "Balancing Storage" RRS feed

  • Question


    I've scanned briefly through the WHS DLLs and googled for "Balancing Storage" but I've not found anything yet on the subject.  Does anyone know of a way to determine when WHS is "balancing Storage" (i.e. API, registry, event, process, etc).

  • The information you're looking for isn't exposed through the WHS APIs, I'm afraid. "Balancing storage" can mean a number of things. One is that DEMigrator is busy creating/maintaining shadow files on secondary drives, but it could also mean that CHKDSK is being run, or any of a number of other things.

    Anyway, there's no WHS notification for the event.
