Drive swap interrupted


Recommended Posts

Swapping out old drive for new. I don't know why but the process stopped. I now have a third of the files on the new drive 2/3rds on the old.  What's the best way forward?

I asked this question of drive bender support last week but heard nothing. Not sure if the product is still supported or if my licence is too old or what

I'm not sure the drive is ok. I had some funky stuff going on (different drives being offline in the pool), but I noticed this one was made in 2012 so I thought I should swap it out for a newer drive to be on the safe side.  (I also swapped the PSU out and I think they system seems happier).


So if I force remove it can I manually copy the remaining folders back to another drive that is already part of the pool?  Do I need to rebuild the pool after that?

If you force remove it, assign the removed drive a letter in Windows and manually copy/move the files from it back into the pool.  

Force removing the drive will keep the pool online. 

You can add a new drive before copying/moving the content from the old drive back into the pool, if you have one.

This is all providing you can still access the removed drive.
