    • Union Filesystem wont move to new drive

      Hello all, I have a union filesystem setup which pools all three of my drives together as show below

      So currently I have 1 drive with all of the data on it and it just hit max capacity, so in theory the files should now be sent to one of the other two drives but that's not happening. When I try to move a file over it says I'm not out space and doesn't even try to move it to the other drives.

      sdb1 is the main drive of the union filesystem and the new files should be moving to sdbc and sdd but they're not

      Anyone know why?

      Thank you.

      Sorry if this is the wrong area to post this.
    • Tell us what the directory structure is on each of your drives and which directory are you writing to in the pool that isn't sending data to the other disks.

      Or if you don't understand my question and you just want to get it working in a less organized manner, then change the policy to Most Free Space.

      Ok, changed the policy to Most Free Space, and I still get the issue where I run out of room.
    • You still aren't telling me where you are writing the data to.

      Your pool is defined in fstab as:

      /srv/3c2df203-083b-45b3-a52e-a589fc07a21b

      Is that a shared folder that has a user friendly name?

      When you created the pool you named it nas. If that's the shared folder defined by /srv/3c2df203-083b-45b3-a52e-a589fc07a21b, then you must write the data to that target directory or shared folder if you want it managed by the UnionFileSystem.

      The shared folder is the bottom one in this image right?

      I am writing data to that

      Sorry if that's not it, im fairly new to omv and don't understand the terminology.
