[Gluster-users] Adding larger bricks to an existing volume

I have a 10x2 distributed replica volume running gluster3.8.
Each of my bricks is about 60TB in size. ( 6TB drives Raid 6 10+2 )

I am running of storage so I intend on adding servers with larger 8Tb
My new bricks will be 80TB in size. I will make sure the replica to the
larger brick will match in size.

Will gluster place more files on the larger bricks? Or will I have wasted
In other words will the 80TB new bricks ever exceed 60TB?
