Failing HDD Move Databases to a new volume

We have a Hard Drive that is starting to show Smart Errors and would like to move the databases off that drive to replace it. I am wondering what the best method / practice is to go about vacating that disk is. I am leaning towards removing the databbase coppies that are on that volume and reseading to the new disk or to one of the spare volumes that is in the chasie.

Hi,

 

a fast and simple approach: move your active databases on the failure hard drive to a new/other one or set the mailbox databases active on another node.

Be sure that you have a copy of every mailbox database on another hard drive / node. Remove the database copies, replace the disk, re-configure the mailbox database copies again on the new disk.
