Storage space and affinities

Hello,

we've got 75tb XSAN with one volume consisted of three storage pools. We've got three folders (i will name them here folderone, foldertwo and folderthree) where each folder has its own affinity. I will name pools storageone, storagetwo and storagethree here.

Storagethree has 21TB of space. Folderthree has affinity tied to this storage pool. Two days ago there was 4TB of space left on storagethree pool. After deleting more than half data from folderthree freed space in XSAN admin hasn't changed.

Ive seen threads here on this forum where people have experienced similar issues, but i wasn't able to figure whats going on still after reading them.

If free space on storagethree pool hits 0 will people be able to write to that folder?

How to fix this issue if this is an issue at all?

Thanks in advance!
