Hi, I have this problem:

I have a DS918+ with one volume almost full. I created another volume and I want to move/migrate a couple of shared directories from the old to the new volume. I see that in Control Panel > Shared Folder > Edit > Location option I can choose the volume but I don't know if this is what I want. I am the only user and is a home installation, I don't need high availability or anything similar, just want to move the shared folder as simple as posible. Thanks in advance.

Maybe you could have also just extended the size of your volume...?

moving of the Shared folders between any volumes is common and safe operation
Thanks, I'll try it then.

Why not expand the existing volume? Multiple volumes on a 4-disk machine aren't often necessary.
I am planning on expanding the old volume, not just yet. I just want to move some things that i don't mind to have no redundancy out of the way while I wait for a definitive solution.
