Goal

When a disk is dropped, the disk group is rebalanced by moving all of the file extents from the dropped disk to other disks in the disk group. A drop disk operation might fail if not enough space is available on the other disks. The best approach is to perform both the add and drop operation with the same ALTER DISKGROUP statement. This has the benefit of rebalancing data extents only one time and ensuring that there is enough space for the rebalance operation to succeed.
