If you have mounted the volume on the new peer, and are trying to access
the files through the GlusterFS mount, you should face no problems. You
wouldn't have the best performance possible owing to GlusterFS's general
behaviour with small files, and the additional load of the heal replication
You should never directly access files of a GlusterFS volume from the
backend brick directories.
