I've added a new drive to my pool and I'd like to spread the files in the pool over to the new drive. I realize this isn't the default behaviour so I've added the "Disk Space Equilizer" balancer into my system. At the moment it's the only balancer I have enabled and the system STILL isn't moving the files (and therefore balancing the space).

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Is there a log or something that I can check to see why it's ignoring the only balancer present?

Check the main balancer settings page.  

 

try changing it to "balance immediately", and uncheck the "not more often" option.

 

Also, try moving the balancing ratio slider to 100%, as this will make it aggressively balance.

 

 

If that's still not helping, then try grabbing this beta:

And if that doesn't help, let me know
