Adding additional storage
I'm running a pseudo-distributed cluster on a single machine and I would like to use a larger disk (mounted and ready to go of course).  I don't mind transferring to the new disk (as opposed to using both disks for the hdfs which seems much hairier), but I'm not sure how to transfer a hadoop cluster to a new disk...or if its even possible.  Even if I simply copy the entire directory where the hdfs is emulated, I still need to somehow switch the namenode to know about the new disk?

Is there any way to do this that beats manually "getting" the data, throwing away the old cluster, making a new cluster from scratch, and reuploading the data to hdfs?...or is that really the only feasible way to migrate a pseudo-distributed cluster to a second larger storage?
