    Thank you for your replies.
    I was also thinking the same way you are, that it should save a file to the drive which has the most space available at that time.
    Is there a way now to have the files being distributed evenly between the drives automatically or do I need to recreate the pool from scratch?

    No, I don't. Here is an ls of all of the drives including the Pool for referens.

    cesar@nas:/srv$ ls dev-disk-by-label-DISK2
    Logs Media snapraid.conf.bak snapraid.content.lock

    cesar@nas:/srv$ ls dev-disk-by-label-DISK3

    Thank you for your quick reply.
    The Create Policy I selected was and still is "Existing path, most free space". Here are also the options: defaults,allow_other,direct_io,use_ino.
    I thought that this would spread the load between the disks, as it would use the harddisk with the most space available at the moment.

    I have installed latest OMV and configured SnapRaid and MergerFS.
    I have an external harddisk which I have all of my backup stuff.
    So I started by creating an MergerFS pool and created an RSync Module pointing to a location on the pool.
    I then copied the files with Rsync from the external backup harddisk to the pool.
    I have a pool of four harddisk in the poo,, but it looks like only one of the harddisks was mostly used for the the files as now one of the drives is almost full while the other are not yet half full.
    Is this how it should be?
    Is there any command to adjust the imbalance and spread the files more evenly between the drives?

    Here is also a notice I get about this issue:

    Resource limit matched Service fs_srv_dev-disk-by-label-DISK1

    Description: space usage 99.4% matches resource limit [space usage>85.0%]

    Hi All,
    Thank you for your all replies.
    I had IPv6 disabled already through the WEB-GUI, so that should not be any issue, if I did not need to disable it in any other way?
    I changed the SMTP server to the mentioned address and it is working now.
    Problem resolved. Thanks.

    I am trying to use Google mail smtp-server to send all my OMV notifications.
    Bellow is my configuration:

    With following settings:
    SMTP Server:
    SMTP Port: 587
    Use SSL/TLS: On

    A window pops up when I click on the button "Send a Test Mail" saying it was sent successfully.

    But when I look at the log file /var/log/ it says

    Jul 29 19:43:59 nas postfix/smtp[16154]: warning: relayhost configuration problem
    Jul 29 19:43:59 nas postfix/smtp[16154]: AE17B4CB92: to=<>, relay=none, delay=4780, delays=4775/0.04/5/0, dsn=4.3.5, status=deferred (Host or domain name not found. Name service error for type=AAAA: Host not found)

    I can do a "dig", so the is no issue resolving the DNS-name.

    cesar@nas:/var/log$ dig

    ; <<>> DiG 9.9.5-9+deb8u13-Debian <<>>

    ; EDNS: version: 0, flags:; udp: 1280

    Any suggestion on how to fix this?
