Hello,

I have one account that has 500GB of data, mostly emails, and one Wordpress website.
I have to move it to another drive. Will there be any downtime in the process of moving data from one disc to the other one.

Thank you!

Hey there! The only downtime would be at the end when services get reloaded to update the configuration files to list the new home directory path for the account. This should only be a few seconds, or the time it takes Apache to restart.

As with any work, I would always recommend planning this type of thing during non-peak hours for your server and users just in case.
