Months ago, I was able to obtain a copy of Windows Server 2003. Afterwards, I set out to create a home media server consisting of (4) 2TB hard drives. Using Windows Server 2003 set-up, I created a small C: drive partition for system files and a large D: partition across spread across all 4 hard drives for media storage. Recently, I began to get messages stating that my D: drive was out of storage space.
** (See attachment; Screenshot 1) **
D: properties lists 4.65 TB of free space, so the system is seeing the amount of free space across all 4 hard drives. However, the "Capacity:" only lists 1.79 TB as if the system only sees the capacity of the first 2TB hard drive.
Using a partitioning tool, I can view the following:
** (See attachment; Screenshot 2) **
From this I can see that D: partition on the first disk has been labeled "DATA" and the remaining partitions spread out across multiple hard drives are labeled as *:DATA. The D: partition on Disk 1 is full. The other disks have plenty of free space. I am confused as to why Disk 1 is storing the majority of the information and giving the out of space message when the other disks have plenty of free space.
I do not believe that I set the system for hard drive redundancy (However, I cannot find a way to go back and double check).
I have searched the internet, but I wasn't find any information regarding a scenario which resembles the issue I am facing. Is there a way I can make it so that all of the free space available of the D: partition is made available and thereby get past the out of storage space messages. Any help would be appreciated.
