[SOLVED] Free Share Space Doesn't Reflect Newly Added Drives

5 posts in this topic Last Reply

unRAID Version 5.0b13 - I recently added 3 - 750 GB drives (6 drives total, Plus Lic), pre-cleared and added to the array and have started and formatted and everything looks fine. I can write to them as disk shares, but when I look at the shares page, the free space shown, doesn't reflect the added 2.25 TB the added space. It still shows the free space that was indicated before I added the additional drives. Thoughts? Thanx!

Did you define the Shares with Include Disk only specifying some disks?

If so, you'll probably need to update the shares to include whichever one(s) of the new disks you added.

 

Just a thought.

 

Can you post your share definitions?

None of my shares have anything in the "Include Disk". I have always let unRAID simply use whatever space it needs to based on highwater mark, but it has always shown the total remaining space spanning all the drives, until I added these three drives. I'll be happy to share the definition...not at the house at the moment and I know if I go by memory I'll end up lying.  ;) So, when I get home I'll post that info. Thanx!

As part of adding 3 drives, I also had to add a SATA host controller so I would have enough ports for the drives. Took a bit to get the card to work because I had to update the bios on the card, so I had rebooted the thing what seemed a million times as part of getting everything configured correctly. So if you had asked me if I had tried rebooting, I probably would have said, of course I have!  :)  But after you said to try rebooting...I couldn't really recall if I had or not...so went ahead and rebooted and all is good! Couldn't believe I didn't already try that. Thanx a bunch!
