DrivePool File Distribution Algorithm
Here's an interesting question.
What type of file distribution algorithm do you guys think DrivePool should use across the pooled drives?
Remember this is not a RAID like solution with stripes. It's actually writing real files to NTFS.
Right now, it's very dumb and just picks the drive with the most space to put your file on (or more than one in case of duplication). This is really easy to code and very fast. But is this really the best thing to do?
I can think of a few alternatives, what do you think?
