I added another ndf file within an existing Filegroup on another drive.
I allocated about 3 GB as an initial size.
The new file is still not filling up.

No data is going to the new file only to the old file.
The old file has not grown much not sure if this is why it is not filling up the new file.


Any input would be appreciated

Thanks In Advance

as per above post, it is normal for user DB -- try to limit SIZE of old file

also adjust as needed  auto growth settings for files
