Question, I have a WHS 2011 server (beginner with DrivePool!) - this currently has 1 drive as I am getting this all setup. Drive 1 is near full - using the WHS folders (Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc).
Now that I've installed DrivePool, I am ready to move this into a pool and continue to add drives.
Do I first add my drive (C: is the system drive) to the pool ... then, go to Server Folders and individually move these folders to the Pool (guess this will be G:)? Will this add all current data from my drive?
Then, moving foward, will I install a new drive and immediately add to the pool? Since these will be empty, I imagine it will prompt to format?
Just making sure I'm setting this up correctly and adding these in the right manner! Again, I've installed DrivePool, so now I am just getting everything else in place with my drive, folders and subsequent drives. Unfortunately, I won't start with duplication until I get larger drives - I'm at 5TB data on 8TB of storage once it's loaded, so, until these are 4x 3TB/4TB drives, I'm limited on storage space ... but, that's the later step!
