Moving to new HDD without reinstall





I have XPEnology with DSM 5.2 Update 5 running on a HP Gen8, with 4 HDDs. The first HDD, where DSM is installed, is a 1TB WD Black, which I want to change for a new 3TB WD RED. Is there a way to just "clone" the info on the old drive to the new drive (including the DSM installation) so I don't have to reinstall, just plug in my new 3TB HDD and be good to go?

DSM is installed on all your 4 HDDs. Just remove one of uour drive and replace with one bigger one, then wait for rebuild. After rebuild is finoshed continue this with other hdds until you will change all of them with bigger ones. After you changed all then you can extend your volume to the max size.


LE: this is available for SHR, Raid5 or SHR2..
