Problems Increasing size of Volume
#1
RAID 5
4 - 5TB Drives

I Deleted a volume to increase the size of a new volume, but SR will not allow me to increase the size. I can only make a additional volume of the same size as the one deleted.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Tim

All volume free space must be contiguous, or together, to be able to expand a volume.

How many volumes are on your disks and what order did you create them?

I see. I have 6. They are not in order.

We do not like moving data around disks, which is why it is not working in your case. You would have to delete the volumes at the end until the area you want to expand is freed up.
