after rebooting my hda. i already had a usb drive connected to my amahi and when i opened up my share tab and under the storage pool section my root share had "grown" by a lot of space. but when i clicked on my disks under the storage tab the disks down up as two separate disks. also when i vnc'ed into my amahi i was unable to access nor safely remove this USB disk as i am getting an access denied error.

I did not tell Greyhole to merge these drives into one single drive. it did it automatically from what i can gather.

Greyhole does not do that.
Drives should always appear separate in the Storage Pool page (I see my 7 drives in there).
The only thing I know of that could 'grow' a partition would be LVM...
Did you, by any chance, have that USB drive connected on install? Maybe you create a LVM volume with it in it, and that's why it doesn't appear in the Storage Pool page.
Shows us the result of the "mount" command to confirm.
