    Yeah i think you can do that.

    Turn off drive balancing but still enable cascade mode. New files with auto be written to the first pooled HDD until it fills up, then files will be written to the subsequent drive. Existing files will not be shifted around.

    The only issue i've found is that I cut (moved) a directory of the pool and into a seperate non pool drive. windows explorer left the directory structure on the drive with the thumbs.db still being there, but the directories otherwise are empty.

    Drive bender is working well however I have a feeling it is not letting my drives sleep.this is an issue as I leave my htpc on to download torrents and I want all my storage drives to spin down.

    easy way to check is just to open file explorer then try and explore the drive. If they are powered down there is a 2 second delay before you can read a file or navigate up the directories. Sometimes windows caches the first or second directory tree.
