Unraid to Drivepool 101 - need help to start the process



Two servers. Drive pool user since 2015. Unraid since 2020.

Drivepool has given me zero problems, so much so, that I forget that it's even there.  Unraid on the otherhand,  is problem after problem with difficult to diagnose and complex fixes.

The last straw was today I bought a 2.5gbe switch and two 2.5gbe nics. Windows recognised the new card instantly but Unraid was a different story and I've wasted a whole day.


I want to move the 2020 Unraid "backup" server to a new DrivePool.


So far:

-  I have removed the Unraid USB and installed Windows to the SSD.

- the 2.5gbe nic is working in both machines, transfer at 280MB/s from my fastest drive.

- I can see the 15 XFS drives in disk management.


But where do I go from here???

How can I transfer the files from the XFS drives to the new, NTFS drivepool?
