Is this Placement rule possible?

Question

Hey guys,

 

I was wondering if this set of rules is possible:

 

1. Place all new and existing files in Folder AA to drive 1. Other files and folders can also go into Drive 1, but ALL files in Folder AA must go to drive 1.

2. After Drive 1 fills up, remove files/folders as needed to accommodate new files being placed into Folder AA.

3. Adhere to the drive fill up rule of Ordered File Placement plugin. The only rule this plugin has is to fill up drives consecutively instead of evenly.

4. Adhere to Stablebit Scanner rule of removing files on problem drives.

 

I can't seem to get all 4 of these working together. Any help would be appreciated.

First, open up the Balancing settings, and on the main tab: 

  • UNCHECK "File placement rules respect real-time file placement limits set by the balancing plug-ins."
  • CHECK "Balancing plug-ins respect file placement rules."
  • UNCHECK "Unless the drive is being emptied."

If you're using the Ordered File Placement balancer and the File Placement rules, you need to do this, otherwise both will keep on trying to move files back and forth.

Thank you for this setting. It works except for:

 

My drives are now being filled up to 100%. I need there to be a certain amount free on each drive.

Check the settings of the Ordered File Placement balancer. This is what should be controlling how much free space is left on each drive. 

 

Also, check the file placement rule, to see if it does allow placement on other drives or not.
