The main problems I had related to the fact that I wasn't simply adding a disk, I was replacing a disk.
First of all I used a free box that I had to run live NAS4Free and setup the disk. The sequence for encrpyting a disk in NAS4Free is as follows:
- Add Disk
- Create your encrypted volume using the previously added disk : This step will automatically ‘attach’ this volume
- Format this encrypted volume
- Add a Mount Point using this encrypted volume
Once the disk was added I was able to transfer the data, the next step was waiting 24hrs.
After all the data had transferred it was time to remove the old drive and replace it with the new one.
Before removing the drive physically I deleted the following:
- CIFS/SMB shares
- Mount Point
Next step was to physically remove the drive and replace it with the new one. Once the drive was in I had to do the following steps to get everything up and running:
- Add disk (note it is encrypted)
- Remove previous encypted disk information
- Add new disk to encryption list (NOTE: DO NOT INITIALIZE)
- Create Mount Point (NOTE: I had to fsck/check-disk first, as I was receiving errors when mounting)
- Add CIFS/SMB share
