Raid5 array showing twice as much used space as actual?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've got a question. Recently my 3-TB raid5 array had a drive drop out, and had to rebuild. Since then, in windows explorer it shows the array as nearly full, when it was actually about half full. I had about 700 GB on it, and now it shows that I have 1540 GB on it. What's the reason behind that? I'm sure I could take everything off, format the array, and move it back on, but that's a lot of trouble and I lose redundancy for a few hours. How can I make windows explorer show the actual usage again?

See the screenshot, it's drive D:

Thanks

Well somehow it fixed itself. Isn't that something?
