Issues with whs disk space issues but loads of free space RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi guys

    i may have missed a topic about this but all the forums and articles ive read on this doesnt describe my issues, so i am sorry if i have missed a relevant one

    i have a whs with a 500gb primary disk with 3x 1.5t drives, the first drive is split to a 20gb for the os and  445gb free

    when i try and copy something to the data drive which reads disk size 445gb and then free space is 3.75tb


    it keeps saying im out of disk space ? its very annoying as i got rid of my movies from a share it got rid of the error as i was told im not to transfare directally to the whs usb ports i was told to use the shared drives ? is this right ?


    would anyone know of a way i would stop this as i have borrowed someones hard drive to temp put my stuff on


    thanks for reading

  • You shouldn't be doing anything directly to drives. They become part of the pool and should only be written to by using the Shares.
