Hi, I have an RN104 I just upgraded to 6.4.1. I had four 3tb drives and I swapped them for four 6tb drives. My drive space pre-swap was about 9tb, and I was expecting the new usable storage to be about 18tb.
I was using X-Raid, Raid5; So I had backed all my stuff up and one by one swapped out the drives. I was under the impression that the X-Raid would be vertically expanded on its own. But it seems like it only happened during swaps of drive 2 or 3.
So for some reason after swapping four 6tb drives, I only have usable space of about 10tb, which is not what I was expecting at all. Am I missing a process or will I need to rebuild all 4 drives to get the 18tb?

Re: RN104 triggering vertical expansion in X-raid
As far as I can tell, the box is idle now. I've restarted twice since. Nothing is displayed in the front. Nothing displaying active in the UI (like nothing is in progress) and I have email notices that the last disk upgrade It has since changed from RESYNC to ONLINE.
Since then, I upgraded from 6.4 to 6.4.1 and restarted twice more.
I will restart again but this will be the third time.
