Extending existing volumes to newly-added node(s)

Let's say I have a 3-node cluster with a volume called /storage. I then want to extend the disk space available to the cluster, so I add a 4th node, and then begin copying more data into the /storage volume.

With replication factor still set to 3, how would MapR and the existing /storage volume behave in this scenario? Will the space available to this volume expand (or be rebalanced) when adding the new node?

In short, I need the ability to add future nodes and expand space available to an existing volume, rather than create new volumes.
