Adding a New Drive - just to clarify


Recommended Posts

My array has been working well with:

 

Parity Drive/ Data Disk 1 / Cache Drive

 

Now I have a new 2TB so I want to expand my media user share on data disk 2.

 

Are there any complications to how my shares will be organised or is it all good? Secondly, shall I pre-clear the disk or just add it to the array? I don't want my array to be offline because my Dad's smashing prison break.

Always a good idea to preclear a drive before adding it, especially if you want to avoid 8+ hours of downtime.  I don't know how your shares are organized right now, but adding a new drive should be pretty straight forward.  As long as you leave them on default settings, your shares will span both drives as needed.  Do you have any specific questions about specific share settings?

Sorry that was phrased really bad.

 

Basically, under Media user share I have:

 

Included disks: disk1

 

I want ALL my disks to be used for the media share. Shall I take out disk 1 or shall i just keep writing in a new drive each time? disk1, disk2 etc.
