Converting a multi-volume file system to a single volume file system

Because data can be relocated among volumes in a multi-volume file system, you can convert a multi-volume file system to a traditional, single volume file system by moving all file system data onto a single volume. Such a conversion is useful to users who would like to try using a multi-volume file system or SmartTier, but are not committed to using a multi-volume file system permanently.

See About SmartTier.

There are three restrictions to this operation:

  • The single volume must be the first volume in the volume set

  • The first volume must have sufficient space to hold all of the data and file system metadata

  • The volume cannot have any allocation policies that restrict the movement of data
