(Solved) Sub shares directly to specific disks

I have my shares write to specific disks.  I prefer this and it works good, except for my movies share.  I have directories in movies I would like to write to specific disks.  For example, movies\non-animated I would like to use disk 1 and 2, movies\animated use disk 3 and movies\other to disk 4.  Anyway to do this?  Thanks,

You would have to make the directories shares then under share settings for any particular share just set Included disc(s) to the disk numbers you want to use.

 

i.e. movies/other include disc 4.

 

Kevin.

No that won't work. there is no such thing as sub-shares.

 

Maybe what you meant was to make 'other' a share and restrict it to a certain disk. But it wouldn't be part of the 'movie' share.

Thanks everyone.  I think my question was answered, it can't be done.  I can't use split level because I want certain 'split level' directories to go to certain disks.

If you set your split level and manually create the subfolders and files on a certain disk, then subsequent files will go to the same disk because of split level.

Thanks that makes sense.  Would I pick "manual, do not split directories"?  How would it work when say I have (2) disks with share movies\non-animated and I tried to write to that share?  How does it know what disk to write to?  Whatever the allocation is set for?

Yes - with manual Split Level and a folder that exists on more than one drive then the allocation method determines which drive to use.
