Automatically Move Data to balance drives?

Recommended Posts

For the past few years I have been using unBALANCE to handle this whenever I replace a drive with a larger drive and want to distribute the wealth across the array. Are their better ways to do this, more specifically a more automated way?


For example, I just replaced a 4TB drive with a 14TB drive. My array consists of 4, 8 and 14TB drives. Now that I have 15TB free on my server of 82TB total, I would love the ability to click a button and distribute that evenly among my 13 drives in the array, basically giving each drive 1TB+ free.
