Use the disk with more space in a Pool

Hi,
I have some Iscsi disks, some have 10 tb and others 5tb in a Pool of disks.
Sometimes I have more space on the disks of 10 tb like 2tb, but the disks of 5tb are full on that moment, like some 100 gb free.
But BackupExec always insist to use the disks of 5 tb with low space.
*Life Recicle is On and working.

There is a way that change something for it use the disks with more space first?

Re: Use the disk with more space in a Pool

See the section in the BE 16 Admin Guide entitled "Specifying a default selection method for a device in a storage device pool" on page 414.

You need to use BEMCLI to change the selection method of the storage pool. e.g.

Get-BEStorageDevicePool -Name "<name of storage pool>" | 

     Set-BEStorageDevicePool -SelectionMethod MostFreeSpaceFirst

Ok, thanks for your help.
I have another question about it, supose that I change the selection method for MostFreeSpaceFirst, if the disks that have more space are not avaiable, the Jobs Go to the others disks on the Pool?

It will pick whichever available disk with the most space
