File placement question #2


Here is the scenario. I have 3 drives. I am using File Placement Balancer to fill the drives in order from drive 1 then 2 then 3 and only fill them to 95% full before moving onto the next empty drive. I also tell File Placement rule to put folders a, b and c into drive 1 only.

The problem I'm having is that the folders/files I have marked to reside in drive 1 end up in the other drives some time. How can I configure it so that drive pool moves folders/files not flagged specifically for drive 1 into another drive in order to make room for folders/files flagged for drive 1?

* By default, this plug-in will override any folder based or pattern based file placement rules. In order for folder based 
  or pattern based rules to take priority over this plug-in you can change the balancing settings on the "Settings" tab 
  as follows:
    * 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 sure that you've done that.
