GSuite Drive. Migration\Extension

Question

Hi all. 

I've got a 10TB drive in GSuite that has the following details;

NTFS Version   :                   3.1
LFS Version    :                   1.1
Number Sectors :                   0x000000009fffeeff
Total Clusters :                   0x000000009fffeeff
Free Clusters  :                   0x0000000009f31f08
Total Reserved :                   0x0000000000000400
Bytes Per Sector  :                4096
Bytes Per Physical Sector :        4096
Bytes Per Cluster :                4096
Bytes Per FileRecord Segment    :  1024
Clusters Per FileRecord Segment :  0
 

However, when I try to extend the volume, by another 10TB, windows reports back that 

"This volume cannot be extended because the number of clusters will exceed the maximum number of clusters supported by the file system.

Anyone encounter the same?

 

 

Also, is it possible to do migrate data from one cloud drive to another without reupload?

thanks,

A 4k (4096) cluster size supports a maximum volume size of 16TB. Thus, adding an additional 10TB to your existing 10TB with that cluster size exceeds the maximum limit for the file system, so that resize simply won't be possible. Volume size limits are as follows:

Cluster Size

Maximum Partition Size

4 KB

16 TB

8 KB

32 TB

16 KB

64 TB

32 KB

128 TB

64 KB

256 TB

This is unfortunately not possible, because of how Cloud Drive works. However, a simple option available to you is to simply partition your drive into multiple volumes (of a maximum 16TB apiece) and recombine them using DrivePool into one large aggregate volume of whatever size you require (CloudDrive's actual and technical maximum is 1PB per drive).
