Mover, is it running?


Recommended Posts

Is there any way in the GUI to see if mover is running, and if it is, roughly how long is left, as a rough time or as a percentage?


I've set all my shares to exclude 2 disks because i'm replacing them soon and kicked off mover. I'd like to see when mover has finished moving the files from those disks over to other drives.

Mover isn't going to move those files just because you excluded them from your user shares if that's what you mean.


Mover only moves cache-yes from cache to array and cache-prefer from array to cache. It never moves files between disks in the array.


And in general, user share settings only apply to new writes. Nothing is ever done automatically to existing files, except as I described in the previous sentence about moving between cache and array.
