WHS HP EX470, 1 x 500GB and 1 x 1TB disks. The 500gigger got about 80% filled, and then I added the 1TB. After a couple months, the current state is that the 500gigger is filled, and the 1TB is about 40% filled. So, on Thursday night (this is now Saturday morning), I started running the tool. Before starting the tool, I shut off all the backups to the WHS, and to my knowledge, none of the computers on the network have had interface with the server.
Upon start, the tool took up about 500 more GB of the remaining 600 GB on the 1TB drive, and the tool has been running ever since, approximately for the last 36 hours. The DOS window on the tool keeps saying:
Drive 0 is 75% done.
Going to sleep while data is being moved ...
Total Disk Throughput: x MB/s (where x ranges from 0 to as high as 12)
[it then cycles thru approximately 12 of the Total Disk Throughputs and then says]
DE Service being restarted due to low disk activity for 30 seconds ...
Restarting the Drive Extender Service ....
and then it starts again
As I said, this has been going on for 36 hours or so. Is this normal, and if so, a) how much longer should I expect it to run and b) if I want to shut it off, can I safely do so without corrupting anything?
