Add warning to "Use cache" share settings and disallow change for appdata share

Recommended Posts

Very often new users (me too ^^) do this mistake:

- install Docker Container

- change appdata Cache setting from "Prefer" to "No" or "Only"


And as the files are spreaded across SSD and HDD the docker container fails.


Because of that I like to see this the following enhancement for the appdata Share:



This means its not possible to change the setting as long the docker service is running.


And in general for all other shares it should return a warning depending on the location of the files:

Even for the appdata share?


Ok, then it should be possible to select, but it should contain a check/warning:



What do you think?


I like the idea of adding a warning - needs some server side code to implement it but may not be too hard to do.

Why would you need to disable the docker service to change the appdata share settings?

this is frequently recommended as any file being held open by a docker container (or the Docker sub-system) will be ignored by mover.  Disabling the Docker service means you will not encounter any problems while files are being moved between drives.
