Hello friends of OMV!
Can someone explain to me in simple terms what setting I need to make in mergerfs for creating new files?
I really tried to figure it out using THIS site but I'm just more confused.
I have 5 hard drives of different sizes. One is an SSD for the OS.
Now I want to use ALL of the 4 remaining disks. I have no need for redundancy and am aware of the risks. The OMV only serves as a backup NAS.
I would like the data to be saved in its entirety and NOT split across multiple disks. In the event of a failure, I could swap the disk and rsync would re-save the missing data.
I wouldn't have to save EVERYTHING again.
Now I wish that the data would be stored evenly distributed on all disks. So the individual hard drives should all be filled to the same percentage.
I chose "Existing Path - most free space", but my rsync job is currently writing everything completely on the largest one of the discs without using the others
Even if the disk is filled so much, that the others have more space left...
Is it possible to change the data writing policy for the mergerfs plugin after creating the file system? And what would be the right policy for my needings?
Thanks very much !!
