Hi, I have whs2011 and 4x2tb drives in a drive pool, used only to back up several pc's. That is, the drive pool is fed data from whs2011 backing up all the hard drives of my other pc's. I only have 1.5tb free space left distributed across the 4 drives. I would like to remove one of the 2tb drives and replace it with a 3tb drive to increase space. The problem is that the I have no more free sata ports so can't just add another drive without removing one, and not enough free space to clear one drive without adding more storage. I do have 2 non pooled drives, being C (OS) and D (non-pooled data from C)
Could I remove a non pooled drive (lets say D), install the new 3tb to its sata port (NewD), add it to the pool, remove all data from one of the 2tb drives (Z:) and swap to NewD, then pull the now empty 2tb drive (Z:), and put the 3tb (NewD) in its port? Or is there a better way. Maybe if I delete the duplicated data in whs2011, although not super confident of that as it is all auto backup stuff, so not sure if better to delete it off the normal PC's so it gets removed, or try to remove it physically from the back up files themselves.
Any help appreciated. Overall it is a great product.
