  1. Thanks! what is "the predefined order on the archive disks" though? Is that just the order they are in in the 'drives' section? essentially, I want DP to sequentially fill my drives (as per the ordered file placement balancer), but to use a SSD as the temporary storage space for newly created files. IE: new file in pool (copy from network, etc) ---> SSD ---> Archive disks, and fill in a set order
  2. Thank you for the reply! I would like to try this, but I don't see "ordered placement" in the SSD optimizer... am I just overlooking it? I've pulled the SSD for now, that's why it doesn't show up in the list ATM. Thanks again!
  3. Thank you for the reply! That all makes sense. So far, so good! I also have an SSD I would like to use as a cache drive. I added it to my pool, and installed the SSD optimizer (at the top of the balancers). However, it doesn't seem to use the SSD when I copy files to the pool. Is that because 'ordered file placement' is taking priority? What I would like is new files to go to the SSD, then moved to the appropriate drive in the background/when balancing occurs. Is that not how this plugin is supposed to work? Thanks!
  4. additionally, I'm not sure if this is related.. but what is "unusable for duplication"? it seems like it is taking up a lot of the pool. I have no files or folders flagged for duplication (that I know of)
  5. Hi, I just purchased drivepool and have just started using it. So far, I have 2x 10TB drives in my array, and I'm copying data from my 16TB qnap (ext4) to my pool. I have about 40TB of additional hard drives to add, which are all full, essentially 100%. I have the "ordered file placement" plugin, as I'd rather the files be placed sequentially on each drive so that in case anything fails it's easier to replace the data on one given drive. My question is this - how do I add my full drives so that drivepool doesn't move files around on that drive/in the pool, and just leave them where they are? Do I just move each new "full" drive to the top of the "ordered file placement" plugin? I'm just getting used to the software and I'm not entirely sure how to configure everything properly. Thanks! ** oops wrong forum... can this be moved to the drivepool forum?
