ssh Posted July 30, 2020 Share Posted July 30, 2020 (edited) Just installed a new WD 8TB RED WD80EFAX hdd in my system. Ran a preclear (zeroing) with the preclear plugin. Stopped the array, added the new disk to the array, started the array, formatted the new disk (as xfs). The overview now shows that 56GB of the 8TB of that new disk is used. Investigating the disk with the terminal shows it contains 1 folder with 16 small files (between 1 and 250KB in size). I know there always is some os overhead, sure. But 56GB? What could be going on here? Edited July 30, 2020 by ssh Quote Link to comment
