Hi all, I currently have a 18.6TB Stablebit Drive Pool consisting of 6 drives running on WHS 2011 on a HP N40L Micro Server. I have run out of spaces for new disks and need more CPU power so will be putting together a dual Xeon tower server. The new Sever will have Proxmox running a VM of WHS 2011 on an SSD (rather than on the very old 120gb hdd in the N40L). What is the easiest way to move the pool/files over to the new PC. 1) Do a fresh install of WHS 2011 & Stablebit Drivepool, then remove one drive from the N40L, install in Xeon Server, make new pool, copy as many files as possible, repeat till all drives are done - very time intensive! 2) Fresh install of WHS/DP - move all drives over, would Drivepool see the existing pool and use it so I don't need to copy any files over? 3) Clone WHS (inc DP & any other software obviously) from the old 120gb drive into the new VM and then move all drives over, would Drivepool see the existing pool and use it so I don't need to copy any files over? If anyone has done this sort of thing before or has any input please let me know. My number one concern is obviously not losing any files, but I also want to make sure I do it the best way to be time efficient! Thanks for the help :-)
