Can I plug a new SSD into an existing Umbrel setup?

Hey there!
Is it possible to plug in a brand new SSD into an existing Umbrel setup? I don’t mind downloading the blockchain again, just wanted to make sure the configurations and lightning channels would be kept. Thanks!

An new SSD will create/cause a new umbrel setup. You could use same setup information, but its a new umbrel account with new see phrases.

A new micro SD change does not do this, but you asked about switching SSD.

Thanks for your reply. So if I got this correctly, the node and lightning channels information is stored on the SSD, right?

Hence the use of SSD carbon-copy clone style apps for when users need to transfer their node into new storage.

From my current experience every time or anytime I have touched the USB port it has forced full resync.
