  1. Okay, this is very weird. I got a replacement drive for the one that had SMART errors (which I have also told not to store unduplicated data on until I trust it). I put it in and tried playing around with the balancers again. Even though I would now have almost 4 TB free, enabling "Disk Space Equalizer" still wanted to put unduplicated data on drives where the higher priority balancer "File Placement Limiter" had been told NOT to put unduplicated data on the drive. As per the screenshot, and as continues to be, there is a red tick mark below the graph showing how much space is being used o
  2. If I disable Disk Space Equalizer then everything is okay. If I enable it, even as second priority, and having the option to only use "Equalize using duplicated files", it still wants to place unduplicated files on that drive unless I leave the "try not to fill a drive above xx%" at 99%, but then it doesn't equalize the drives. No combination seems to allow me what I want to do. The end goal is to have the drive space equalized by percent used, but to not put unduplicated files on a specific drive or two. There is plenty of space to allow this to happen, it just seems like the Disk Space E
  3. The File Placement Limiter setting was the issue, however I don't understand why that causes the issue. That sounds like a requested option, but shouldn't override my direct request to NOT put unduplicated files on these drives. There is plenty of space to move duplicated files to these drives and keep the unduplicated on the other 7 drives. Now that I set it to 99%, it rebalanced and did remove the unduplicated files, however the drive is at 54% filled, whereas my other drives are 88-92%. Most of my files are duplicated, so there should be plenty to move around to balance. I do have the
  4. Currently, I have 202 GB of unduplicated data on that drive. I have 1.6 TB free across all my drives, and 3.4 prior to removing the 2 TB that has SMART errors. It still had the same behavior. Is there no way for me to absolutely prevent unduplicated data from being on that drive?
  5. Hi everyone, I have a WHS2011 server with 8 active pool drives. I have one drive that's very old and I don't trust. I'm using the add-on balancer "File Placement Limiter" and it's the top priority. I've told it not to store unduplicated files on this drive. The little red arrow shows my setting of "Unduplicated file placement limit 0.0%", however it's currently balancing and shows an unduplicated target of 108GB of files to this drive. I have never been able to get it to adhere to these rules. The other day I had a drive develop SMART errors and I have the "StableBit Scanner" balancer as
