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?

I understand that you would like to leverage the data into 4 disks averagely.
Regarding this, I'm sorry that it's not supported for Rebalancing for storage space.
Parity configuration only works for new added data. Currently, I suggest we copy the data to another disk and copy back for balancing or add another two disks directly. Thanks.
