    I tried with 3 x 500 GB and added a 2 TB drive, the same happens it works fine.. But on can only put the data % drive that os left on the drive with lowest space left, on the 4'th
    Cause there is no kind of rebalancing the drives after adding more drives

    Only way as i said is to copy data from the drive to the drive after you have added a new hdd. To rebalance your data in % out on your drives. Please confirm if moving works to if anyone try it

    Yes, Rebootas is correct. The balancing in SS is not great.

    In the end, I could not recover the Storage Spaces, but Elena at Reclaime.com used her firm's software to enable me to get access to the files in SS and solve my problem. However, I am staying away from SS, as I do not believe it is ready yet for ordinary consumers.
