Extra space not useable RRS feed

  • Question

  • WHS ver 6.0.2030.0 with PP1 installed. Not a RAID setup on drives, all drives independent on Intel SATA ports. Primary C: on 160 GB SATA with two 1.5 TB SATA drives for the inital install. recently added forth drive a 1.5 TB, and added it to the pool. Server Storage in console reports:   Total Size: 4.24 TB Free Space 1.48 TB. All drives: Healthy. I attempt to copy 7.3 GB movie to Video shared directory it will not copy. Have I missed a step on adding new drive??

    Firstly update your WHS to PP2 as PP2 had some fixes in including one that solved the problem about large file copies going to the system partition first.

    I suggest you upgrade to PP2 and try the copy again.
