Issue with adding more storage space to owncloud



I run a home server with owncloud installed over Ubuntu server 16.10.
Initially I had only 2 hard disks, a 500GB for the operating system and a 2TB for owncloud. Recently I have added a 3TB disk with the intention to increase the storage space for owncloud. I used mhddfs to merge the two partitions from the 2TB and 3TB disks into one single partition of 5TB. Then I changed the data directory in config.php to the new partition and everything was ok in the sense that owncloud is running fine.

However, if I go in my owncloud admin interface and give a user 3TB of storage this is not correctly shown in the user interface. When the user opens its own interface, a different number, way smaller (for example 1.6 TB only) is shown.

I paste below the outputs from fdisk, lsblk and df.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Has ownCloud right permissions for the new storage/ partition?

chown -R www-data:www-data /path/to/your/new_mnt_drive


Yes, all partitions involved in the storage have been granted with the right permissions.

Below is my output from ll in /mnt. The initial installation has been made with /mnt/disk2t only. Now, owncloud is set on /mnt/virtual5t after I added /mnt/disk3t and merged the two partitions with mhddfs.
