Ok sounds good! Yes my movies are in it's own folder:
Can't Hardly Wait/Can't Hardly Wait 1998.mkv
Pulp Fiction/Pulp Fiction 1994.mkv Pulp Fiction 1994.srt
Some movies I have the srt file that need them.... this would be ok right? the two files will stay together even doh they are being spread around hard drives?
You guys are making me understand this correctly.... I wana do this right the first time.

You are correct. If you set split level to 1 for your movies share then both of these files would be on the same disk. Split level 1 means that the contents of any folder at level 1 will all be placed on the same disk.
So in the example below if you have the split level set at 1 the .mkv and .srt files would be on the same disk because the both reside within the same folder at level 1.
/Level 0 / Level 1 / Level 2
/movies/Pulp Fiction/Pulp Fiction 1994.mkv
/movies/Pulp Fiction/Pulp Fiction 1994.srt
Oh and I just couldn't resist - Can't Hardly Wait together with Pulp Fiction -

@wsume99 How do you have yours set to? is it also ok for movies to be at 0? how does your array look like?

I have my shares arranged as follows:
Movies share split level is set to 1. Individual movies are forced onto a single disk. Directory structure is:
Movies/Movie Title/Movie Title.mkv
TV share split level is set to 2. Individual seasons are forced onto a single disk. Directory structure is:
TV/Show Name/Season #/Show Name S##E##.mkv
Music share split level is set to 2. Individual albums are forced onto a single disk. Directory structure is:
For all my shares I have all disks included. All my spindown timers are set to 15 minutes. I also use the most free alocation method with the min free space set at 30000000. The only thing I do that is a little unusual is that when I add a movie to my movie share I manually place it on the disk I want it to be on. So rather than creating a folder in //Tower/Movies I create it in //Tower/disk #/Movies. The reason I do this is so that I can put all my kids movies on one disk and all the grown-up movies onto a different disk. I suppose I could have just created two different shares but I like having all my movies in one share. The reason that I split them up this way is becase I noticed that my disks were being spun up and down a lot on days my kids would watch movies. This was because they would watch a movie that was on disk 1 and then the next movie might be on disk 2. So by putting all their movies onto a single disk now I don't have that problem anymore.
Personally I don't think there is a right or wrong way to setup your network shares. It really depends on your own situation and what makes sense to you.

The WD is 2C less then the Hitachi. But the the Hitachi during preclear is about 20 MB/s faster then the WD.
So at idle this this morning the Hitachi is 27C and the WD is 25C
