Just coming back to update, I took the approach of a force removal, adding the new drive to the pool, and then copying the files back over the LAN. It worked just fine, although it took a full day to copy the 3TB over wifi and verify the transfer. Thanks for all the help.
Thanks very much for the responses. I don't have space in the pool to redistribute the files (I'm about 2TB short of being able to do that). I do have other PCs I can connect the new (or old) drive to which are networked to the server with the pool. If I add the new drive as a networked drive to the pool in the first instance, then remove the old drive (balancing the files from the old drive onto the new drive), can I then migrate the new drive to a local drive in the server? I do have duplication enabled for some folders, but I could probably disable that temporarily if needed. I'd be a bit reluctant to start removing/reinstalling DB as I've had some issues bringing the pool back online in the past when doing things along those lines, so I'd prefer to leave that as a last resort.
Hi all, Wondering if anyone can advise whether this is safe or will cause issues. I have a four drive pool which is very close to full. I want to replace drive 1 with a newer, larger drive. Can I pull out one of drives 2 - 4, temporarily replace it with the new drive, swap the new drive into the pool, then remove the original drive 1 and replace the removed drive 2 - 4 back into the pool, without causing issues? Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.
