Does remove a drive move backups off that drive to another or delete them? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I tell WHS to remove a drive from the storage pool will it migrate any backups off that drive to other storage pool drives, or will it delete them?  I assume it'll migrate them, but wanted to check first just in case before I actually do it.

    Removing a drive through the Console moves everything stored on that drive (share data, pieces of the backup database, etc) to another drive (room permitting of course).
