Ordered File Placement - Config wrong?


I've got the following setting for the Ordered File Placement but it does not seem to be filling up the drives lower in the order.  I do have some File Placement rules set to put d folders only on drive "d232f" (as it is a Hitachi 8TB HDD, the rest are Seagate 8TB Archive Drives).  I presume I've got some setting wrong.

If you're using both the "Ordered File Placement" balancer plugin, and the File Placement rules, you need to set:


* 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."

Make these changes, and see if it helps.

Thanks - but same effect (though I no longer get the yellow warning).  A side effect of this issue is that when I then try to add a new rip, DP will try to add it to one of the the disks that does not have enough space so I get a windows warning saying the drive is full.
