Unraid is filling up first drive only, where other have enough place.

High water marks are based on the largest drive, in your case 8TB.  Once there's less than 1TB available on it, then it'll start filling disk 2,3,4 & 5 until there's 500GB available, then start over again until 2,3,4,5 have 250GB, then 2,3,4,5 until 125 GB, then will start putting files on 1,2,3,4,5 once there's 62.5GB.  Assuming of course that disk 5 isn't excluded in the global share settings (Settings tab)

Sounds like, but after changing High Water to Most Free it won't balance data itself....Now need to find a way to do some house cleaning...

What has been written won't be redistributed.


When trying to redistribute data manually, make sure you don't accidentally move files between disk share and user share because you will lose data. Due to that risk, it's better to just let thing slowly correct itself over time as more data is written.


There is an Unbalance plugin that can help.
