Disk 2 only showing 100gb of total avalaible space in windows explorer

Hi, I received my new EX2 almost 2 weeks ago my data transfer was to first fill Disk 1 . I’m using JBOD mode.

Now i’m ready to fill Disk 2. Shares are created, some data are on some of them. The problem is that I have only 100 gb of total available space on it. Trying to copy a directory containing more than 100Gb of data and I got a "not enough space avalable on the drive error msg.

In windows explorer, where i did map

some permanent network drives with the net use command, it really show all of them that are physically located on disk 2 with 36Gb used on 100Gb…


In windows disk manager, the main data partition in identied as RAW but healthy. I suppose the RAW status in normal since it’s formatted with linux  ( I connected the disk through  a usb 3.0 interface to have it connected directly to my pc to see the status…). I’m getting the sames status data with Acronis Disk Director 12… and I inserted Disk 1 in the usb interface to compare it.  The infos i’m getting is identical to the one for “culprit” Disk 2.

Any Idea guys ??


I just reseted the unit… same situation… :frowning:

In Smartware, Shares that are on disk 2 (volume2) are reporting 2.2 Tb of free spaces… Should be ok. but…

Maybe you should try contacting WD’s Technical Support about this. You can do so either by phone or email.
