Migrating From Pre-Release Drive to New Drive

Question

I have a 100TB drive that is a "Pre-Release" drive and is currently separated into multiple 32TB partitions.  Are there any legitimate worries in continuing to use this drive, or should I begin the process of migrating to a current drive?  The provider is Google drive.

For the migration, I'm thinking that I use drivepool to pool my current drives, and that I create another set of drives with a new connection, then I add both of my pooled drives into a nested pool.  Would that slowly duplicate my data (about 30TB) from the old system into the new?

No, there shouldn't be.   It mostly means that the drive was created with a pre-release version of the software, and may not include all of the latest features. 

This shouldn't impact usability, but I would still recommend recreating the drive, since there are more options (especially related to data integrity).

Thanks Christopher.  So follow up question, what is the best method to create a separate disk and begin moving the data to the new drive?

I initially thought that I would create a new clouddrive (H:) (pooled partitions of 25TB), and then create a "master" pool that consist of the old clouddrive (E:) and the new cloud drive.  I would then change the drive letter to represent the initial drive letter of the old drive (E).  I'm assuming I would then move my data folder in the pool folder on drive E:.  I tried this, but Plex had an issue with it.  I reverted to the config of a single clouddrive.  I'm down to 1TB of free space left, so I need to come up with a solution.

 

Thanks!

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you!

 

The simplest way would be to create a new disk and move the data over directly.  However, if it's in a pool, the ... simplest way would be to add the new disk to the pool and just remove the old disk from the pool.

OK, so I've been moving my data over to the new disk, but I've run into an issue.

I setup a new disk of 25TB partitions and placed them in a pool.  I then setup another pool that consist of my old drive and the new drive.  The problem is that the old drive is now full, and I don't know how to setup drivepool correctly.  I have the "Super" pool setup to duplicate data, so that data would be copied to the new drive, but as I download more things, the old drive eventually filled up.

I've attached some images to help explain my setup and see if anyone can help me out of this.
