Volume resize not allowing for capacity of full drive

Just replaced a mirrored volume to go from 2TB to 6TB. I initialized first drive, set my secondary, initialized second drive, set as primary and removed both 2TB from the mirror. When going to resize the Volume, it's only giving me the option to set the max size as 2TB instead of the 6TB of the new drives.

Do you still have any older 6.x release? There is a resize bug in 6.2. You do not need to install the driver for the older version, just run it, resize, then quit. (6.0.5 or 6.1 would be best)

I do not, updated straight from 5.8.4. Is there a link to older version?

Thanks! The option is showing the correct max capacity now. How long does this usually take and can I use the volume while its resizing?

Resizing larger, should be almost instant.

Is it not done yet?
