(re)Ordered File Placement on HDD?



I'm running a Plex server currently with 8 HDDs in 2x4 bay boxes. I have some hard drives allocated to TV, and others allocated to Films.

I'd like to have files written to the drives in consecutive writes to reduce fragmentation and to begin filling drives one after the other. What's the best way to do this?

Just bought a new 18TB drive to add to the Films pool. I'd like to start by filling it up with content currently in the pool, and then begin to fill up the next highest capacity drive, and so on.

How can I optimize this going forward?
