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 its 75% through its 18 Hour Data Scrub.

My question is the capacity that is currently displaying. It shows only 4 TB / 5.2 TB currently. Not even close to the 10 TB with 4 TB for Protection the SHR RAID Calculator advises. The Status during the 3rd and 4th Drive Install is attached in a screen grab.

I did locate the below.... must this be done or is it automatic? I assumed it would display automatically....

For DSM 7.0 and above​

  1. Go to Storage Manager > Storage and select the volume you wish to expand.
  2. Click the

    icon > Settings.
  3. Go to the Modify Size section and enter the new volume capacity in the Modify allocated size (GB) field, or click Max to automatically fill in the maximum capacity available.
  4. Click Save to finish.

You have to do this manually once the parity checks/build is completed.

Thank you for the confirmation...... Just another small bit of key information that is missing from all that I read from Synology on just the replacement of Drives.... at least what I could find.
