Adding New Drive to Synology Volume(s)


Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I did some searching but could not really find an answer to this question.

 

I recently replaced my 2 disk Synology NAS with a better 4 disk version. To start I just bought 3 disks thinking that I could do RAID 5 or SHR and then add another disk later. On my previous NAS I had 3 volumes so that I could easily map their contents to root. I had "Files", "Music", and "Time Machine".

 

I wanted to replicate this scheme on my new NAS but am wondering what happens when I decide to add the 4th drive?

 

The new NAS automatically formatted itself to one volume with the new btrfs file system. I know how to reformat it to recreate my 3 volume scenario but if I add the 4th drive will I only be able to add it to one of the existing volumes or can I divide it up and spread it between the 3 volumes.

 

Thanks for any and all opinions!
