Optimal settings for Plex


I've bought the full StableBit suite a couple weeks ago and I must admit my money were well spent. Now I'm running a Plex media server with these specs:

Xeon E3-1231v3

16GB ddr3

2x4TB drives

1000/1000 mbps dedicated connection

Everything is running smoothly, but reading some threads on the forums, doubts started arising on the fact my settings are not ideal and since I still haven't uploaded much data, I'm still able to create a new drive and upload everything again easily. My main concern is that when I've setup the drive i chose 10mb as chunk size instead of 20mb, which I see many are using and I wonder whether there are any major differences between the 2.

Also i'd like to know which settings you're using to get the best out of CloudDrive and Plex.

Thanks! Sounds like this is handled without needing a reupload of these files, right?

I'm still on the fence because I don't know that I like the idea of losing control of the volume on which specific files/folders end up being stored.

Correct. Nothing needs to be reuploaded to just move the data around on the same volume. Note that you can still control the placement of files and folders with the DrivePool balancing settings, though not quite as granularly as you could with a single volume.
