Shrinking a Shared Folder

Shrinking a shared folder decreases its maximum capacity.

  • Users and applications will be unable to access the shared folder until the operation is finished.

  • For a thick shared folder, the freed space is returned to the shared folder's parent storage pool.

  1. Go to Storage & Snapshots > Storage > Storage/Snapshots.
  2. Select a shared folder.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. Select Action > Resize Shared Folder.

    The Shared Folder Resizing Wizard opens.

  5. Specify a new smaller capacity for the shared folder.

    Capacity can be specified in megabytes (MB), gigabytes (GB) or terabytes (TB).

  6. Click Apply.

    A confirmation message appears.

  7. Click OK.

    The Shared Folder Resizing Wizard closes. The shared folder's status changes to Shrinking....

After shrinking is finished, the shared folder's status changes back to Ready.
