Restoring to different drive sizes/manufacturers? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My 500GB Samsung SATA hard drive just crashed, and I am wondering what are my options for a replacement restore drive that will work with WHS.  Can I change sizes/manufacturers with the replacement?  Do I need to get a 500GB Samsung SATA drive of exactly the same model to replace it?  or can I get a 1TB WD SATA drive and WHS will happilly restore to that?

    This is on one of my computers connected to WHS, not WHS itself of course.

    Thanks

  • The drive just has to be equal or bigger than the old disk to restore to. There isn't a requirement for specific models
