1) Disable circular logging

2) get lagged copy parameter Get-MailboxDatabaseCopy copyname | fl name, ReplayLagTime

3) remove lagged copy https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd298164(v=exchg.150).aspx

4) replace the disk

5) add database copy https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd298080(v=exchg.150).aspx

6) set lagged time again  Set-MailboxDatabaseCopy copyname -ReplayLagTime copied in 2

7) enable circular logging

No need, just give the new drive the same drive letter than the old one and once you add the db copy it will automatically copy it

Do we need to seed the Database with the Active copy after adding the New Database ?

And how to seed the Database with  passive copy  rather than seed from source Active copy?

By default seeding will be done automatically when you add a db copy, however if you want to specify a seeding server you need to use the SeedingPostponed parameter to the add-mailboxdatabasecopy and then use the update-mailboxdatabasecopy command with SourceServer parameter
