How do I set file placement rules only for NEW files?


I actually assumed that's how they would work, but apparently not.

I have an SSD that I want to add to the pool, but only have new files placed there.  As soon as I create the '* > SSD' rule, DP starts filling up the SSD.  What am I not understanding?

The File Placement rules doesn't handle that. It only handles the file names. 

That said, it sounds like you want to use the SSD Optimizer balancer plugin. This sets all new files to be placed on the SSD drives, and then later moved to the archive drives.
