Is there an allocation method that prioritizes writing data to disks that already have share data unless space has run out?

What I'd like to do is prefer using disks that already have share data on them until they are full and only then start writing to extra disks. Basically I want to limit unnecessary spin ups.

 

I'm looking at the docs and I don't think I can do this. I can set include to only use the current disks but that won't automatically use others when it runs out of space.

 

I thought fill up might do this but it sounds like that just goes for the lowest number disk with free space.

That is correct, and there's no other way I know off other than limiting the disks for that share, but like you mentioned, you'd need to change once it gets full.
