Now I have server on Ubuntu with PostgreSQL only. What will happen when the HDD's space runs out?

If I'll add one more HDD will data will be writing in it? Will it increase the available space?

  • if you add HDD's and format them into the same partition it should add more space – Budget Tech May 15 '19 at 22:27
  • I have one hdd now - /dev/sda1. I need to connect one more hdd and it's space plus to /dev/sda1. Yes? – picKit May 15 '19 at 22:32
  • yes, from what I know that should be it. But I have never had my own server so do it at your own risk – Budget Tech May 15 '19 at 22:35
  • ok. thank you very much – picKit May 15 '19 at 22:36
  • If you installed the OS using LVM, then see Adding Disks With LVM. Otherwise, things will be more complicated (you can't really "format them into the same partition"). – steeldriver May 16 '19 at 2:27
