Low free space on pooled drives -- is this a concern?
« on: September 24, 2012, 05:51:56 pm »
As in the image below, two of my pool's three drives are pretty close to full and WHS dashboard is giving me a low free space warning (1 of two DRU's and 1 PPU).
Is this a concern? If so, how do I address it with FlexRAID?
(using cruise control snapshot)
Thanks,
Ari

If you had set a higher reserve space in FlexRAID, that would have taken care of it.

You could hijack the drives and move the data around, set the reserve higher, and run update.
Obviously, this is all cosmetic and you could just ignore the warning.

does leaving it cause problems, like more errors, shorter drive life, slow r/w, or higher fragmentation rate?
how does one hijack the drives?
