I created a new backup system and initially tested everything with a 2.5TB disk. Once the idea worked out, I went to increase the disk to 7.5TB. I increase my volume on the SAN, then increased the disk in VMWare to 7.5TB. Then, went in to
gParted and increased to 7.5TB but now im still seeing only 2.5TB total size on the disk when I do
Here are the outputs of some needed information:

Im running this on a Centos6 system. It looks like the disk is actually storing data properly but it won't go past 2.5TB even though everything else is showing it is set larger. Any ideas on this issue would be greatly appreciated!!!
