Windows 2012 DRS Replicatoin and Mount Points

When our Windows 2012 server we built they we setup to use mount point since are file server are very large and use up alot of drive letters. The problem we have now is that we need to move data to new backed volume but when we add another target it wants it in the form of a UNC path which will not work becuase we would need to change our share mapping names going forward.

We were hoping to use DFS replication to easily move the date from lets say D:\data to new volume F:\DAta on the same server an other servers.

Any suggestions

I 100% agree the replication idea was suggest by one of my senior coworkers that did not end up being a good idea..

I did end up open a support case with MS and there only concern is the face are share referenced by DFS are in a failover cluster and when the new volume is present it will have a new GUID and might be a problem with DFS...

Any one present a new LUN to a DFS names space before to replace a existing one?
