dear,

im a happy pro license user, very hppy, might add.

i have 9 disks currently, some ssd & HDD mixed with an ssd cache. works wonderful - 14.8 tb total and 3.25tb free 

 

now, im getting notifications that a disk is about the be full (91% or smthg thereabout) but why does the system norify me about?

why doesnt it just write on another (free) disk?

 

allocation method is "high-water" (means that if a disc is full, it moves on to the next, right?)

 

thanks in advance for the replies

Unraid consider the Allocation method as you said. but it also consider the Split level of each share.

 

It is possible that the configuration split level prevents unraid to switch disk.

could you tell me which option i would need to check and how it would need to be set (in order to have a "best practice" config) ?

much obliged
