Author Topic: Upgrading my RAID 5 drives - Volume size will not increase  (Read 2415 times)

Hello all,

I currently had my DNS-343 configured with 4 1TB drives at RAID 5 which was working fine.

I want to upgrade all four drives to 2TB to increase my storage space. I was trying not to wipe the whole volume and copy all my data to a newly created one. So I started replacing one drive at a time letting the RAID array rebuild each drive. This is working however, the volume size is staying the same and not increasing with the larger disks that I am using which is somewhat redundant to why I am doing this.

Is there anyway to resize this volume via the Web UI without wiping it and starting with a new one?

I have all my data backed up onto another external drive just in case I lose the RAID array in the process.

I am currently running with FW ver. 1.04

Thanks,

buckshot169... ???

The firmware does not support growing RAID 5 arrays.
