Disk Space Usage showing incorrect size

#1

Post by StevenWendal »

First of all... please advise if this is in the wrong area

I've just upgraded a 4 drive (soft raid) raid5 from 1tb drives to 4tb
to avoid reloading all the data, I added each drive to the existing raid and let it rebuild between each add.
once the finial drive was in, it extended to 12tb as expected.... except

on Status > Disks, it shows RaidFive 12.00TB
on Disks > Mount Point > Edit, it shows RaidFive: 12.00TB
on the System Information page the Disk Space Usage still shows 2.9tb (Total: 2.9TB | Used: 2.18TB | Available: 490.73GB)

I've tried several things to update this... removing and re-adding mount points, upgraded to latest version 12.1.0.4 - Ingva (revision 7854)

could someone advise where this reference is coming from and how to update it?
..or where to fix the reason is shows this value?

Regards,
Steven

Although the capacity of your RAID has changed, the partitions and the filesystems containing your data haven't changed.
