Include remote drives in your storage pool

You can include remote drives in your storage pool, if you want. To do so, you simply need to create a .greyhole_uses_this file in the storage pool drive. This file will be used by Greyhole to differentiate a mounted drive from a missing drive.

Example greyhole.conf: storage_pool_drive = /mnt/airport/gh, min_free: 200gb

Create a .greyhole_uses_this file: touch /mnt/airport/gh/.greyhole_uses_this

You'll want to make sure you mount remote storage pool drives before you start Greyhole, or it will complain about missing drives, and start a check_pool each time you reboot.
