So I have 2 old desktops one is running FreeNAS and the other is just a windows one. the FreeNAS machine is in a bigger box and I am in a situation where i want to move it into the windows box. They are old dell optiplex desktops so i cannon change out the motherboards. so pretty much I want to move my drives over to the smaller box, can I just move everything and just boot from the USB again or do I have to go through the whole setup process again. please help

You can just move it all over and as long as the hardware is compatible it will work.

thanks, i tried that and it worked. now i just cant activate any plugins, in the old box i never had any problems with them not turning on, but recently ive moved house and had it shutdown for a while, when i tried to get it working today it wouldnt turn any on so i thought that moving the systems will help it fix that issue but nope, im still having it
