I have a drive that is acting odd. What is best way to mark it "read only" including empty space so DP doesn't add files to the drive?

Marking a pooled drive read-only may cause drivepool to not write to the pool at all? EDIT: can cause it to complain that the disk is write-protected if an operation on the pool involves that disk.

My suggestion (assuming otherwise defaults) would be:

  • Manage Pool -> Balancing... -> Balancers tab -> Ordered File Placement plugin -> move the problem drive to the bottom -> select "Only control new file placement".
  • Manage Pool -> Balancing... -> Settings tab -> tick "File placement rules respect real-time file placement limits set by the balancing plugins"

This should still allow other disks in the pool to be written.
