Re: "not enough space" with "data raid0"

[no space left on device ...]

Ok - it happens only with 2 disks/Partitions?

I've continued playing; added a 3rd partition/device and then balanced:


# btrfs device add /dev/sdd1 /mnt/btr
## 73 + 146 + 146 GByte

# df

Filesystem             1K-blocks       Used  Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdc1              358432300  225400136   59842800  80% /mnt/btr

# added about 70 GByte (all together more than 3 times the smallest partition)

# btrfs fi show

Looks as desired, the 3-disks-system contains more than 3 times the  
smallest disk.

Balancing hasn't redistributed the contents - no problem.

By the way: you should name the prefixes in the NIST way for powers of  
2: KiB, MiB, GiB. Or change to decimal prefixes.

Viele Gruesse!
