Adding drives after reinstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I attemted to move the OS to an SSD, which didn't go well.  So after reinstalling it on the SSD, I now face the hurdle [for me anyways] of tring to keep the data on my backup drives, get them added without a format to save me days time of restoring a backup from my Western Digital DL4100.  So if anyone has an easier way to do this to save me time and give me [easy] instructions on how to do this it would be geatly appreciated.

  • Rename the shared folders on your existing disks to something like Musicold. Then using the Dashboard move Music from wherever it is to the drive containing Musicold then remove the Music folder and rename Musicold to Music. Reboot and you should be good. Repeat for other shared folders.
