Adding a drive does not mean that you can not store data outside of the Pool on that drive. The Pool data is located in a hidden folder (PoolPart.*). I think you want to move the data outside of the Pool on that drive into the Pool. This is called seeding and how to do it is described here: https://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_DrivePool_Q4142489

As Umfriend says, adding a drive to the pool doesn't add any files that are already on that drive to the pool - those files stay where they are. You can do the seeding Umfriend describes or you can simply "cut and paste" them from the physical drive to the pool drive (less work for you, more work for your drives, and requires enough "free" space on the pool).

Either way just be sure you don't copy any PoolPart.* folders from the physical drive into the pool.
