My RAID is over 16TB. Why do I get an error when adding new HDDs to the RAID to increase the size?

This limitation only applies to Legacy volumes (volumes created on Legacy NAS models or on Firmwares 4.0.2 and earlier).

Adding new drives/capacity expansion is not supported for RAID volumes over 16TB. You must backup your data and build new volume from scratch.

For volumes created on newer NAS models and firmware versions, there is no such limitation.

Applied Models: All NAS Series
