For quite a bunch of seldom used files (photos, audio and
video) I want to replace a scsi-disk by an ide-disk. SYS and
apps like Groupwise shall remain on scsi-disks.

Is there an easy way to i.e. place the empty disk in the
server and start something like VCU to copy all data from
the old disk to the new including trustees, deactivate the
old disk and activate the new one etc.?

Are the any concerns about speed and reliability of
ide-disks? I never tried this in one of my netware-servers
