Hi folks: Simple request and just seeking an understanding of which "concepts" I should be looking at in the user guide to accomplish what is needed. Retrospect Windows Pro 9.5 on Windows 7 Pro. My 1TB drive used exclusively for backups is almost full so I bought a 4TB drive to replace it. My naivety suggested that a simple copy of the drive (sadly, Acronis that came with WD drive was useless in that regard) and... voila! Doesn't appear to be the case. After doing a simple drag-and-drop of the backup folders, as an alternative to a disk clone, from the old drive to the new and plugging in the new. No "voila". I rebuilt the catalogue files (don't know if I needed to but Retrospect wasn't seeing the same old backups on the new drive but, after the rebuild, it did see them and backups now appear to be working on the new drive with the backups as previously configured). However, the size of the available room for backups has not expanded to meet the new, larger drive capacity. So, what is needed (conceptually) to make 4TB-ish available for Retrospect backups and not just the 1TB-ish that it presently sees (and has almost filled)? I had a quick look at the backup set configuration and saw no way to simply increase the size. I saw that I could "add a new member" and, perhaps, I could add a new member in the remaining 3TB of the 4TB drive but that would be a poor second choice to simply giving the current backup set more room. Thank you for your thoughts.
