File Over-Writes - Always on the Same Drive? [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

Say split level is set to separate large ISO movie files evenly across all drives in a 'least full' distribution.


If a file is over-written with one having the same name - will it always be over-written on the same drive, or is there a chance that the replacement file will be written to a different drive?


It appears that the old version of the file is deleted before the new is written, so that if the new version copy fails for whatever reason, then the file disappears from the array completely.


I wondered whether where the new version gets written is only determined by the fact that the drive where the previous version of the file is deleted before the new one is copies just happens to be the drive with the least content because the old one was deleted, or whether it is actively targeting the same drive.
