Move Data is outputting to wrong drive

Hi all,
In the past whenever I've wanted to 'drain' a drive on our Windows TSM Server (SP8.1.5) I've simply updated the device class, and changed the 'directory' value so that this drive is no longer listed, and this has always worked.
But today I wanted to drain all existing drives to a single, new drive, call it X:
So I updated, directory=X:\TSMDATA\POOL and I can see this in Q DEV
I'm running move data commands and sure enough, some of them are going to X: but some of them are also going to the old drives, which should no longer be valid targets. This is really strange, any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,
If there are volumes in 'filling' state, then they will be used first.
Next time, set all volumes that you want to move to readonly.
