Error resizing volume
I have a RAID 5 array. It was filled with six 6TB drives for a grand total of 30TB. I recently upgraded all the drives (one at a time, rebuilding as I went) to six 8TB drives hoping for a grand total of 40TB.
However, when I go to resize the volume in SoftRAID, I get the error "Error resizing volume." It says the maximum I can expand it to is 30TB. Am I missing a step?
All drives show up with no errors and show 2TB available.
Do you still have 6.1 or 6.0.5 of SoftRAID?
Use that to resize. Do not install the driver, just run the app, resize, then quit and go back to 6.2.
There is a resize bug in 6.2.
I don't have any previous versions. Is there a link to download either 6.1 or 6.0.5?
Scratch that. I had an older version backed up in Time Machine. That did the trick.
Requires Big Sur, yes. Let me see if I can find you an option.
Do you have another computer, just to resize?
