I actually have a server with two instances, one on disk D, and one on disk E:

I've added a disk F, that's twice as D, and I'd like to move the whole instance from D to F.

What is the correct procedure?

Thanks in advance

The easiest and safest way is, I think, to duplicate the database using RMAN:
