Increasing EBS Volume disk size created a 3rd drive on Windows Disk Management

0

I have 2 EBS storage volumes attached to a Windows EC2 instance. The volumes were 40gb and 100gb. I increased the 100gb disk to 300 gb, and RDP'ed to the EC2 Windows box ran disk management to allocate the new space to the D drive, but this is what I found instead:

It shows a new drive W that isn't formatted, but has 200gb unallocated to it. Now if I look at the total amount of space available I'd have 40gb (C:/) + 100gb (D:/) + 300gb (W:/)= 440gb!? But in the AWS console I show only 340gb total between 2 EBS volumes. Which brings up the issue that if I format the disk I might be overwriting data because there isn't 440gb allocated. I've tried rebooting the box without success it still shows this extra drive. And I can't find any information about this situation or how to fix it.

Hello,

Thanks for your post. If the instance type supports instance store volume then it is possible that 3rd drive is "Instance store" [1] volume. You can verify instance type information here [2].

To verify the exact issue, I will request you to open a support case with the resource detail. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/awssupport/latest/user/case-management.html
