Hi List,

i just upgraded from 3.5.8 to 3.7.8 and want to convert my existing VM
Images volume to a shard volume now:

gluster volume set dis-rep features.shard on
gluster volume set dis-rep features.shard-block-size 16MB

How are the existing image files handled?
Do i need to start rebalance to convert existing files?

Or is it better to start with an empty volume?
If so, why?
