How do I upgrade HDU size and move all my data to the new drives? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I built my WHS with an 80 gig for OS and two (150 and 300 gig) data drives.  Now I want to upgrade to 1 TB drives.  How can I get WHS to move everything so the old drives can be removed?

    1. Physically install a new drive.
    2. Add it to the storage pool using the console.
    3. Remove an old drive from the storage pool using the console.
    4. Physically remove the old drive.

    If you have duplication turned on, repeat the above with a second drive. Don't worry about upgrading the system drive. 

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
