I'm not 100% sure what your situation is but here is what I do when I replace a hard drive with a larger hard drive.

I have a USB hard drive dock connected to the system. Something that you can stick a hard drive into.

  1. Have a 3-2-1 backup setup and verified
  2. I turn the system off
  3. I remove the old hard drive you want to remove
  4. Place the old hard drive into the USB dock
  5. Place the new hard drive into the spot the old hard drive was in
  6. Turn on the system
  7. Verify that the drivepool pool is still working
  8. Add new drive to drivepool pool
  9. Rebalance the drivepool pool
  10. Click remove in Drivepool for old hard drive.
