  • Question

  • I've run out of room on my WHS and cant add any more hard drives.  I'm planning on swapping a couple of 300gb drives for 1.5tb drives.

    whats the best route to take?

  • The best route is to add the new drive to server storage (use a USB bridge like one of these if you have to), remove the old drive, and physically swap the new drive for the old drive.

  • so when I add the new drive theres the functionality within WHS somewhere to move the files on the old drive to the new?

     

    whereabouts would that be?

    thanks!

  • When you remove a drive from server storage in the console, Windows Home Server automatically moves files to other drives that are still in your storage pool.
