Bigfoot65 requested me to add to this bug report.

Im on Amahi 8 though. But I installed a new 4TB disk and used the Disk Wizard. It allows for LABEL names with SPACES, causing the system to not completely reboot. because it cant mount LABEL names with spaces. I changed the label from "WD RED 4TB" to "WD_RED_4TB" and everything has been working great since. Other then that the wizard was great.

This might be known or not but I'll add it here because this is where it should be documented.

As I first noticed here: (includes fpaste of greyhole troubleshooting which might be useful), disk-wizard doesn't mount drives that are added.

I further confirmed this with a clean install. Here are my steps:

1. Install Amahi 11 with default partitions
2. Install Disk-wizard
3. plug in new drive
4. install through disk-wizard by formatting it
5. disk-wizard returns that drive was mounted at "\/var/hda/disks/blue4tb" (Idk why the extra backslash but it was there)
however, the I only found the blue4tb folder at /var/hda/drives/blue4tb
6. run: df -P /var/hda/files/drives/blue4tb | tail -1 | cut -d' ' -f 1
which yields: /dev/sda4 which is the docker partitions

As a side note, I noticed that when I run the disk-wizard, the terminal prints: "kvm: disabled by bios." Not sure if that is a problem.

Update: Now that I've thought about it, the drive had a GUID partition table (I wonder if that is shown by the extra backslash?). That might be why disk-wizard couldn't deal with it. In that case, the wizard should be able to identify that as an issue and redo the partition table in the formatting.

The app has been moved back to BETA due to all the issues user have had over the past several months.
