volume amount on 628x

Hi,

Im confused as to why my storage ammount doesn't seem match my drives.

using xraid and have 7 drives installed: (6)- 10tb ironwolf pro, (1) - 12 tb ironwolf pro.

system is showing tht my total = 45.46 tb.

Does this look right?

Hi @drivethebus,

6x10 and 1x12 TB gives in xraid (which is raid6 in your case) 45.4 TB, which exactly is what you observe.

You might want to use the Netgear RAID Calculator to verify.

Re: volume amount on 628x

@Retired_Member confirmed the size for you - I'd like to add that you aren't able to use all of the 12 TB drive.  To do that, you'd need 4 of them in the array (because it is dual redundancy).
