Duplicate folder being created

I am currently using Liquesce to pool 5 drives (D - H) together in order to have a single mount point (J drive) for my HTPC software (media portal). After playing a movie, I have noticed an empty folder being created on my D drive even though the movie folder and file are on a different drive letter (H drive). My assumption is that during playback a temporary file \ or time stamp is changed on the source movie folder. When looking at Liquesce systray icon -> show free disk space, the D drive has the status "alternative disk to write on" I believe that rather than writing or changing the time stamp on the physical drive letter, Liquesce is causing the system to create a new folder with the same name on the D drive. Is there any way to avoid this or settings I can change ?

More info regarding my setup.

I have

D:\Movies E:\Movies F:\Movies G:\Movies H:\Movies

D:\TV E:\TV  F:\TV G:\TV H:\TV

I am mounting the Root of each drive D:\ E:\ F:\etc   So that I end up with J:\Movies and J:\TV

What mode do you have the mount set to?

Priority / folder / space

I would try the folder mode, as this should keep updates to the same location.

Folder mode has been selected from the start, it is the default setting.  Though I beleive I see the issue.  I am working with mkv files 10+ GB each.  I will try increasing the “HoldOffBytes” value
