    Hey,

    I went to run my update today (after adding a couple hundred gigs of data) and got the error in the title. I'm protecting four 1TB drives, the parity drive is a 1.5TB external drive with 400+ GB free.

    Here is what happens:

    c:\Users\Chris\Desktop\disParity>disparity update
    Beginning "update" command at 1:36 PM on Friday, January 22, 2010

    I'm noticing it's saying 0 for everything, but it's complaining about parity disk space? I just deleted something, ran it again, it processed the delete, but gave the same error about space.

    Am I overlooking something?

    EDIT: Apparently I am, reading someone elses post, I see that it must always put that line in, since there's said "Additional parity disk space required for update: 70.59 GB" .. I must have never noticed it put's it there when there is nothing to update.. I wish there was a delete post option lol

    As the admin I can delete posts. Want me to? :)

    Because of changes I made to the update algorithm, you won't see this message anymore in the latest version of disParity.
