    Hi Everyone,

    Been running 4x 2TB HDD In Parity mode within storage spaces.

    I have just added 2x 2TB more to the storage pool. Which went fine.

    So i now have a total of 6x 2TB drives.

    question i have is the 2 new drives are empty. I thought storage spaces would move all the data so all the drives are in sync.

    at the moment the 4 old drive have the data and the new drives dont have any.

    Of course i understand this but point using storage spaces is if a drive fails i can replace it and not lose any data. if there not all in sync this wont work right ?

    Am i missing something ?

    thanks alot all

    I dont have any personal experience with Storage Spaces, but I'm guessing a new sync didnt trigger because you already had more than three drives and havent yet added a seventh.

    this is the only way it seems to spread to new drives :(
