Just added two new 8TB HDD to my pool. All seemed OK before the addition.

After the addition, balancing will not start and I have a "Duplication inconsistent" message.

Here is what I have tried so far:


1) Settings -> Troubleshooting -> Reset all settings

2) chkdsk /f on all pool drives (everything was OK)

3) Ran duplication check within drivepool.

4) Multiple reboots


None of these have helped. What can I try next?
