My question is, do I need to move the data off the drives to do this or is there a easy way?

Yes.   A format will remove any existing files/directories on the drive.

 

So you will need to copy the contents to somewhere else, reformat a drive and then copy the contents back onto the newly formatted drive.

Can "somewhere else" be another drive in the array? Example:

 

1. Use terminal to move data from Disk1 to Disk2

2. Format the drive1 to XFS

3. Add the drive back to the array?
