Can I not wipe drive to add drives to WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi


    Im new to WHS, I have installed it onto a HP ProLiant MicroServer with 4 disks. To add the disks it says I need to add them which formats them. The problem is each of the drives I want to add already has data on (4TBs worth) I dont want to lose it.

    Can I add them without having to wipe them?

  • As far as I am aware, "No", not without copying the data somewhere else first. You could just copy one of the disks, add it to the server pool and copy data from the 2nd disk to the server etc finally copying the data from the first disk to the server. I assume you are using WHS1?
