Observe we will see the status is Updating
As you increase the storage capacity of your Amazon FSx file system, Amazon FSx adds a new, larger set of disks to your file system. New capacity is available for use within minutes. When new storage becomes available, you’ll only be charged for the new storage. Amazon FSx runs storage optimization in the background to migrate data from old disks to new, larger disks. For most file systems, memory optimization takes hours to days, with a significant impact on your workload performance.
You can also monitor the storage capacity update action from the Monitoring tab using the Free storage capacity utility. The extension will show a big increase in free storage once the update action is complete.
