Switch from HDD to SSD

I tried setting up my node with an HDD because I already had a 5tb but that was taking absurdly long so I just switched to SSD. The problem now, is that when I go to umbrel.local it just asks me to create a username and password. It does not give me the option to log into the account I have already made. Can I still access the original account now that I have switched from HDD to SSD? And if so, how?

If you know how to copy data between ext4 drives, then yes. All data is on the external drive, so it’s impossible for Umbrel to remember your account when switching that out.

There’s nothing really stored in your “account”. All that matters is the 24-word seed phrase. After you create a new password, it will give you the option to restore your wallet (but that’s only really important if you’ve already put sats on it).


Thanks - This was what I was thinking of but it hadn’t occurred to me to do. It worked.
