  • You cant just pull a drive from WHS without causing yourself problems.

    You need to go to the Console, select the drive you want to remove, tell it to remove, wait while WHS checks whats on the drive and then moves (assuming there is enough room on the other drives in the pool) all your data. Then you can switch off and pull the drive.

    Also, you cannot remove the system drive, only additional data drives.
