    Commvault v11, SP6, all hotfixes.
    Client server is Windows 2012 R2.
    Application size for that subclient shows 8TB for the last synthetic full.
    Drives have a software encryption that we're wanting to remove now that our SAN hardware has self encrypting drives.
    My plan thus far:

    1. Restore files/stubs from backup to new drive and verify folder permissions are all accurate.
    2. Remove all windows shares pointing to old drive/folders.
    3. Use compare tool to validate all files/folders are on the new drive and copy any that are missing.
    4. Add new windows shares that point to the new drive/folders

    Does this sound like a good plan and would there be anything you'd change/improve?

    What do we do going forward with the subclient for that system?

    Do I update the existing subclient to point the new paths? Will this show as new data and basically double my application size?

    Do I create a new subclient pointing to the new paths and disable the previous subclient? How will this impact my job retentioning?
