Double or Triple "Cache" pools

Just determined this would be really useful for my setup, because I was having terrible array read/write performance not being able to use the cache as a normal cache drive utilizing the mover function.

 

I have sense moved all my cache only data to an unassigned SSD device, so I could use a larger 6TB drive for the array cache.

 

My problem is even with a 500GB or 1TB SSD, I would easily write more then 1+ TB of data to the cache per day, causing the mover to have to invoke early. A 6+ TB cache drive solves this and will allow the mover to run normally, but that means I cannot load my "appdata" folder on it as guidance suggests.

 

There needs to be a Protected Array Cache that can use the mover, that way we can use your typical spinner drive for large transfers and a secondary Cache only array for apps/vm's.

 

This is my desired setup... I currently make it work with unassigned devices, but this is not ideal....

Another OS update, another disappointment from lack of inclusion of a wanted feature in an already wonderful product....

I was honestly thinking about how I want to do security cameras but want a separate cache drive to fill up that I don't care about and would rotate out. Would be so nice..

Why not use an Unassigned Device drive for this purpose?    Only reason for it being a cache drive would be ift you wanted the data to be part of the User Share system and from your brief description that does not sound like it is something you want?
