been running a Windows node for a few months. A small one, like a hobby thing. So far so good. However, neither the computer or the physical drive are dedicated to Storj. I have tweaked my install some, and now I am in the process of moving the data directory.
Not reinstalling the node, just tweaking config.yaml in order to move the actual payload data to a more convenient disk - namely a virtual disk.
Even my small 650GB node seems to have almost 4 million (!) files, and (robo)copying it is quite a chore for my setup, just because there are sooo many files.
So I was planning to put the data directory on a VHDX in case I need to relocate the data again. Seems much simpler - and a lot faster - to just shut down Storj service, detach the VHDX, move one large .vhdx file to a different physical drive, reattach the .vhdx and restart Storj service.
Planning to try ReFS for Storj on the virtual drive.
