Synology Hybrid Raid - how to get access to spare space


I originally had an 8TB drive in my Synology NAS; I just added a 14TB drive to the pool, and of course, the volume size is 8TB now. I assumed that Synology’s hybrid raid would let me allocate the spare space to create a new volume/pool, but I can’t do that.

Is there a way to make that spare space usable?

Unfortunately you cannot (at least through DSM)

You would have to put a 14TB drive in the place of the 8TB drive to get the extra 6TB
