Disallow changing the cache settings of Shares (appdata) in certain situations

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.

 

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

And after the Docker service has been disabled:

This means it is not possible to change from "Prefer" to "No" as long files are present on the Cache. The user must select "Yes" and execute the mover first (this explanation should be part of the help text of course).

 

Maybe this could be even used for all Shares?! Not sure if some users intentionally use "unlogical" cache settings.

They DO.  There is a Use Case bought up in the past for having the Use Cache set to No with files deliberately kept on the cache.

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.
