Changing HDD's




I have a pool consisting of 3 HDD's. Nothing wrong with any of them but I'd like to upgrade 1 HDD with a higher capacity one and use the lower capacity one for something else on another computer...

What is the best/fastest way to move files from one hdd (in the pool) to another (not in the pool) without messing things up for DP?

include new one in pool? clone disk? use explorer & move? etc?

By design you'd add new drive and press removal on the old which will move things out of it safely.

You can copy the hidden poolpart folder to the new and then replace them while it's off or the service stopped, but it's not clean if there's activity on the pool while you do it.
