Seeding CloudDrive to duplicate Drivepool



I'm trying to create a hybrid pool with my existing drivepool.  My existing drivepool (F:) has duplication turned on.  I've added my existing drivepool to a hybrid pool (H:) comprised of F: and two Google Drive CloudDrives (I: and J:).  

           H: (hybrid)

               /       \

      F:(local)    I:, J: (cloud)


I followed the seeding guide (https://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q4142489) and moved some non-critical data from one of the local drives into the hidden folder.  This was successful (I think) because that data was actually see by H:.  This is what I see in Drivepool.   


Despite the data being seeded, the duplication on H: isn't working.

I have a couple ideas a to why.

1) Seeding F:, while making the files visible to H: doesn't enable duplication. Solution: seed the files to the root of the H: drive (but there is no "H:\PoolPart.xxxx\Files" to paste into).  

2) This did all work, but I need to set duplication to "3" rather than "2" across the H: drive.  

My end-state is to keep two copies local and one on the cloud as a redundancy.  The hybrid pool solution seems like the best path, but I'm struggling to make it work the right way.  

What am I missing?
