Post subject:  Additional MOVIES storage

In Download Parser I set the location of the "MOVIES" folder. The problem I have is that I have let MCM re-download my library since I got a 4K tv for Christmas. and It quickly filled a 4 terabyte HDD. So I got another 4 terabyte HDD. It would be great if the software could automatically split the library and store nearly equal amounts of data on each drive.

I did add the new drive to the Download Parser screen. Then added both locations to the scan folders. But it leaves one drive mostly full and one nearly empty. Yea I could copy over half my movies to the new drive, but MCM will only put new movies in one location.
Can a feature be added to have a secondary location and store the library on both please.

I came here to post a similar request, but would like the ability to determine storage based on file name.
For example, I want to be able to send all 1080p and lower content to one drive (a clouddrive), and 2160p to another (a nas). The clouddrive works great for 1080p content, but just cannot reliably handle 4k content. There's currently no "easy" way to handle this other than having to do it manually.
