Videos skipping cache drive, smaller files not?

Recommended Posts

I have a 250gb cache drive in my machine, and have noticed this morning that for my TV Shows share, nfo and tbn files (~50kb) are being saved to it, but mkv files (~1.1GB) are going straight to the array instead. I have Min Free Space set at 40,000,000 (40GB?) and have 241GB free space, so don't understand this behaviour?

What version of UnRAID?


I just recently setup my first UnRAID server (specs below). I precleared then added just data drives, setup my shares, then copied my data over from my other systems. Then put in my parity & cache drives (these were in use in another system holding some of the data), precleared & setup as cache & parity. I had to go back into each share to change the "Use cache drive" to Yes. Since then I have copied over multiple files (including mkv movies) & the cache drive was used.
