With black friday coming up, I plan on buying whatever 2tb drives are on sale. But am thinking of turning off duplication for every thing and just turning it on for my photos, personal documents, and pc backups. I only have around 6tb but with duplication on for my video files, my usable space is pretty small.
So before I add the new larger drives (and swap out some smaller drives that are currently being used) should I turn off duplication before or after ?
I am looking at swapping the larger drives in, then when WHS claims a drive is missing, I simply remove them from the WHS console? Does that sound right? I shouldnt lose any data if I have duplication on prior to removing the old drives, correct?
