Data redistribution after adding a disk to a storage pool.


  • Hi all... I'm experimenting with storage spaces.  I started with a three disk pool and a parity virtual disk.  Later, I added a 4th physical disk to the pool and I expanded the virtual disk to include this new disk.  I now see the disk activity is limited to the original three disks; the 4th disk is mostly idle.  Is there a "reallocate" or a redistributrion that will spread out the data and balance it across all four spindles?
