Move data to a partition

Question

I created a smaller 55TB partition from my 250TB cloudDrive volume, can I move the data I have in the 250TB volume to the new 55TB partition without having to reuploaded it?
Thanks

Volumes each have their own file system. Moving data between volumes will require the data to be reuploaded. Only moves within the same file system can be made without reuploading the data, because only the file system data needs to be modified to make such a change.

thanks for the answer, do you think it is better to have a single 250TB volume as it is already using or is it better to divide it into multiple partitions and then unify it in a pool?

I think that it is better to keep any single volume less than the 60TB limit for Volume Shadow Copy and Chkdsk. Any volume larger than that cannot be repaired in the inevitable eventuality of minor file system corruption. Chkdsk is relatively essential in order to maintain an NTFS volume. So I would suggest splitting the volume. Note that if that volume isn't actually full, you can shrink it to add additional volumes of the appropriate size.

There is no appreciable performance impact by using multiple volumes in a pool.
