Hello again guys,
Its Manny bothering you again!
Hey so I’ve been doing some reading here on the rockstor forum and I’m wanting to replace my 4x2tb SMR drives for 4x4tb CMR drives.
Similar to what Hooverdan was trying to accomplish in this post here
But my approach would be a little different and I’d like to run it by yall to see what yall think.
So first my current mobo has 8 sata ports on it, I’m currently using 7 of the ports. The drives that I’m wanting to replace are more important than the “other three” (plex, random data drives).
My idea is:
- Temporarily unplug the “other three”
- Mount the new 4x4tb drives
- Set up a new pool with new drives
- Copy data from old pool to new pool
- Remove old pool and replace with “other three” drives
Would there be any issues with this?
Like Always TIA!
