When to Use

If you need access to perform diagnostics or file recovery and need access to the NTFS pooled files that are stored on a drive that is part of the pool.

Warning

Normally you should not access your pooled files from the PoolPart folder that is located on a disk part of the pool.

Only use this as a means of diagnosing problems or performing recovery.

Access your pooled files from the pool drive letter.
