Changing connection type on external storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 3 drives enclosed in cases that have both USB and SATA connections.  The drives are currently connected to my WHS via USB, however, I want to change that so all 3 drives are connected via eSATA ports.

    Can I make this switch easily - i.e., without first backing up the data and readding/formatting the drives?

  • You could just try changing one drive over, but personally, I would do it one at a time by using the system to remove a drive, allowing it to transfer any data to the remaining drives - if you have the space, then change that one drive to SATA and re-add it to the pool.
