Hi, can someone be kind enough to explain what is Downstroking? this effects my SSD config. It happened when I had configured 1x 1.92TB SSD and changed to 2x 960GB SSD (can’t), and forced me to configure to 2x 1.92TB SSD instead. 

TIA.

Hi @david.chan 

Downstroking option is to account for poor garbage collection by providing extra 80GB buffer.
Try giving the following article a read
