Scanner File Evacuation & not moving Dup files
I have a question regarding Scanner + Drive Pool and how the file evacuation option "Move Duplicated Files out of Damaged Disks" works. If you remove this default option and have a bad disk when does the other Dup file get replicated? Does this occur immediately or during a drive balance?
I'm concerned with this option attempting to move a file that resides on a bad sector and then having a corrupt file. I've been burned too many times not knowing a file was corrupt and choosing the wrong file when there was a conflict. I would rather not have Dup files on a bad disk moved and instead rely on the secondary file that resides on other disks. But I want to make sure that if Scanner starts a File Evacuation and I have the option unchecked that my now non-duplicated files immediately get replicated to secondary disks.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
