Upgrading to larger cache drive

5 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Im looking at getting a single 1TB SSD to replace my crucial 240GB SSD which is used as cache drive and also hosts my appdata folder.

 

Is there any benefit to keeping both drives as cache disks or should I simply swap it out?

 

If creating a cache pool do both disks need to be the same size?

You will want to make sure they are comparable for speed and such, otherwise you will have strange slowdowns and speed ups that will be hard to explain...

But this might help:

Will stick to single cache drive, as I don't need a raid0 cache pool and appdata can just be backed up to my array.

Got my 1TB ssd, just to confirm the swap process.

Stop docker
Stop VM
Move appdata to array back up folder
Stop array
Swap SSD
Assign new cache drive
Start array
Move appdata back

Then all should be set?

So I actually never actually upgraded as the delivery never came and price went up.

Now got a Crucial 1TB SSD delivered today pretty sure I read people using a smaller SSD as unassigned drive for appdata / vm image etc

Is this a better option then just swapping out the cache disk and putting appdata back on the larger SSD?
