As far as I know, you always have to format the new volume for the correct size to show up.

this mean new things are possible but not working properly.
if you have 1TB data and disk is full and you have to add a new volume. then format it ?
in this case windows is best whats your opinion. low administration and proper workout. full support and documentation. this really hurt me.
