I understood from a post on this forum that currently the share sizes cannot be set ( http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-My-Cloud/Share-Size/td-p/763262 ). So they are somehow set automatic. But there has to be a way of knowing at least how large a share is. As I like to know how much money I have left in my pocket, I like to know the same thing about my space left on a drive. I’m a pretty meticulous person so this unclear sizing baffles me.
I set my drive on JBOD as I like having all space available without mirroring/backup. And i created 3 shares on one of the volumes. I tried copying a bulk of folders from my computer of ~65GB. On one of them it told me I need an additional 13GB and it cannot copy. On the other it worked. I’m puzzeled here. I seem to not have any control over their size.
What is the algorithm behind share sizing? There doesn’t seem to be a standard chunk of XGB given to a share as my copying worked on one share but failed on the other.
Is there still space on my drives that is “unallocated”? I need to make some more shares to have it available?
