MultiHD on a Hetzner EX42-NVME

Hi all,
I've been running an EX42-NVME from Hetzner for about a year, and all is well.
Increasingly though, I'm running out of disk space; sufficient that services are failing to run. Annoyingly, it seems that SabNZBD isn't clearing the /incomplete and /downloads/sabnzbd directories.
I can clear them myself, but I'm having to do it often in order to ensure services continue to run.

When I set up the server, I didn't set up MultiHD and it seems from the output below that only one of the NVME's is useable - am I right?

If so, is there now a way to use the 2nd disk?

Thank you

Just create a cronjob which clears /mnt/downloads/sabnzbd/* every 1m for files which are older than 60m
