    Available Space of Volume 2 is fragmented... Help?

    I received a message saying that my volume 2 is fragmented and that I need to expand storage capacity. Storage manager says all my volumes are healthy, and volume 2 is only 55% full. What does this warning mean and what is the best practice to fix it? I am using snapshot/replicate with this...

    On my 920+ I had been running three, 3 TB Drives in SHR Mode..... I now added two 4 TB Drives as one of the 3 TB's may have been on its last legs. I deactivated that third suspect drive, Installed the new 4 TB in its place and allowed it to REPAIR and DATA Scrub. I then added the 4th 4 TB and...

    Expanding a volume

    How to fix a stupid mistake replacing old volume with new

    On my DS2411+ I had 2TB drives in use and started seeing more and more failures, more often from newer drives than the old ones. So I bought myself some 4TB Red Plus drives to replace them. I went from 10x2TB to 3x4TB given most of my data is on my other NAS now. I had migrated (or at least...

    DSM 7.0 DS920 newly added 3rd drive has not expanded the volume !

    I have a DS920+. Installed 2 x 12TB wd’s. Then I decided to add another. All accounted for after 3 days of whatever the system was doing. The Storage Pool shows 21.8 TB, but Volume 1 (the only volume ) still shows 10.5GB. So now I have 3 bays filled, but still only 10.5GB is showing in the pool...
