Drive Balance RRS feed

  • Question

  • I Have 4 drive install on my Windows Home server and the data is only stored on 2 of the 4 drives.  I thought the data was going to be added across the drive pool.

    Thanks

  • Hi,
    'Balancing' is a bit of a misnomer. WHS doesn't actually balance the proportion of files across drives. As detailed in the drive extender documentation, it tries to keep associated files together and to do so, utilises the drive with the least available space consistent with with this requirement.
