I am in the process of migrating all the data from one (1 TB) volume (not C:) on an AD server to a new 4 TB one. I have copied all the data including the FolderRedirection and Profile stuff as well as some large shared folders.
There are about 25 shares pointed to the drive E: (the 1 TB one), all with complex permissions setup. I have copied all the data to the same folder structure on my currently G: (the 4 TB one) volume.
What I am looking to do is to change the drive letter assignment for E: to, for example, H: then change the drive assignment of G: to be E: so that all the existing shares remain but pointing to the data on the new drive.
In testing on Windows 7 this process works fine, however I want to know if anyone has tried this on Server 2008 R2?
Given this server is an AD controller and i am working remotely i don't want to crash AD in the process of doing this but I need to make the swap over the weekend and I am running out of time.
Any one tried this before?
