Hi,

Now I have a 320Gb hard drive (7200rpm) for datastore and vm for my esxi.

 

Is it possible to remove this drive and move all data to another disk?

hyper-v? Actually, what I want is to remove my 320Gb hard drive  (witch is my actual datastore) and replace it with an SSD. how to do that?

I assume you don't have vCenter. If you do then you can just migrate from one datastore to another using the usual UI.

 

If you don't have vCenter then you'll need to do the following. Plug in the SSD but leave the HD connected. Create a new VMFS datastore on the SSD. Start the SSH daemon and copy all the files from the old datastore to the new datastore. Remove the HD. Power up again and add all the VMs on the SSD back into the inventory.

oks! I´ll try!!

One question more... with a SSD it will improve the performance? in other case I could use a partition or something form my 5TB drive.

It will be the same upgrade as if you had swapped a HDD for SSD on a regular PC so yes.
