Help expanding storj node with windows install


Need some help expanding my storj node. I installed with the windows installer on a 2tb drive but only told the node to be 1tb. I’d now like to expand it to use the entire drive but not sure how to achieve this!

I’ve searched for the forums but only found info about how to do it with docker i think:

But as I said I used the win installer. If I install docker can I then use the advice above or is there a specific way to do this with a windows install?

The parameter you should change is storage.allocated-disk-space:


Wow, nice and simple! Thanks!
