Using SSD Cache and keeping some files on SSD?

Question

Hi all

Bought a 1TB SSD (MX500) for games and I am just using around 100GB of it atm. Thought about using it as a drivepool SSD cache, but would like to keep and run those 100GB of games on (from) it, as its much faster than gaming on spinning rust.

So here is my question: Is it somehow possible to use a SSD drive as cache (with the plugin I guess) in DrivePool, but still keep those files on it? Can I somehow mark a folder as "keep in cache" or something?

Thank you very much

You have to tick "Balancing plug-ins respect file placement rules" and un-tick "Unless a drive is being emptied" in the "File placement settings" category on the "General" tab of the Balancing settings.

I will try this. Thank you very much.
