If data is on single disk passthrough instead of PCI passthrough of the whole HBA to my Unraid VM, what is the cleanest way to migrate data after?

TLDR: I am just starting out!

My HBA is a few weeks out and at the moment i have single disk passthrough (3 disks in total) to my Unraid VM with no data. I anticipate there will be some data by the time HBA comes in as i continue to iterate on my new system.

What would be the cleanest way to migrate the data before or after i install the HBA?

Bonus: I currently have a server with just ubuntu and bunch of docker vms. The drives are in no array or anything, i just manually add content to them. What would be the best way to migrate that data over to my proxmox host and subsequent drives?
