We was watching a movie that was stored in the flexRAID storage pool when it just quit, when I went to check on the server I find the share/drive is gone, I then try to open the web UI to try and restart it and it fails to open. I was still on build 8 so I figured it must have expires and I should go ahead and update, so I backup my configurations run uninstall(which seemed to do nothing but make it self go away) I try to install buld 11 and it tells me flexraid is already installed, I check programs and features again, flexRAId is still gone, I find there's still an uninstall in strat menu but it just goes away, so I delete the entire install directory. I see it still shows flexRAID and flexRAID disk manager in services but they're not running since their paths are gone but I still get flexraid is already install message when I try to re-install, if I choose to continue the installation fails because it can't start the windows service/already exsist. So what can I do now to get this working again and what can I do to prevent this sort of thing later?

That doesn't help, there's no longer any flexRAID in programs and features nor uninstall on start menu, I was unable to run driver uninstall under advanced tab since I there was no way to access the advanced tab(i think this part of the current problem).

stop FlexRAID and FlexRAID Disk Manager in Administrative Tools > Services and then delete these services in the registry and then restart

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\FlexRAID
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\FlexRAID Disk Manager
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\FlexRAIDD

also delete the C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenEgg.org folder

Thanks, the registry entries made it work. I was worried it might not, because I still got the you already have flexRAID installed.

It would be nice if I knew the version I was running was about to expire, granted I've read on the forum that they're good for 6mo however that doesn't help when you don't know the release date, the build 8 I was using was the newest one when I tried out flexRAID for the first time a couple of months ago.
