[Gluster-users] what happens when adding a pre-populated brick?

The use case is that we have a multiTB data partition that we would 
like to glusterize.  Could we add that store to a gluster volume and 
have it explicitly rebalance across the gluster volume?  Or would the 
existing files/layout be ignored?

this would be a big selling point in justifying gluster to owners of 
large existing data stores.
