Replace system disk

edited March 2013 in DrivePool

I'm getting a SMART warning on my system disk (SSD)

So to be on the safe side im looking to replace it.

I have a drivepool setup over 4 disks.

Is there a best practice to migrate the entire drivepool to a fresh install of the systemdisk?

    0. If any drive on the system disk was part of the pool, remove it from the pool.
     (on a standard WHS 2011 install, this could only be "D:" drive)
     (on e.g. Windows 7, it could include "C:" drive and others)
     (if step zero fails, do not continue these steps until the problem is resolved)

    1. Have only the new system disk connected during the OS install.
    2. Reconnect the data disks, then install DrivePool. Reboot. It should detect the pool.
    3. (optional) Change the pool drive letter to your preference.
    4. (for WHS) Run the WSS Troubleshooter tool to repair shares and permissions.
