Do you want to remove the data from the drive and store it on the server?

Like no-control said, if you add it to the drive pool it will wipe out any data on the drive.

As mentioned if you add it to the pool, it will be formated, however you can just add it as a non pooled drive ( it will ask you if you want to format it, you choose no) then it will not be formated. Now you can RDC and copy data off the drive to your pooled drive, then remove the drive using the Console then add the drive back to the pool. This way you were able to transfer the data into the pool while physically having the drives attached.
