Determining Share Sizes

#1

How do you determine the size being used by your individual Shares? I am considering upgrading my FS to a 5N2, and I need to figure out how much space is being used by the shares, so that I can figure out where to move the data before I blank the NAS disks when I migrate them to the new server. (As I understand it, if I just move the drives as-is, my ‘drive-pack’ will remain at the FS level, not the 5n2 level as far as speed and total potential volume.)

Also, when looking at the capacity used, does a TimeMachine Share occupy the total volume that you specified when you first created it, even if it isn’t full?

Thanks in Advance!!!
