    Question Passive Voice

    Hey guys
    How does the following sence look like in passive voice:


    Someone (doesn't matter who) moves the files to another disk pool during the day.


    Technically, it would be'the data is moved to another disk pool' right?
    However, this sounds better to me:


    The data is being moved to another disk pool during the day.


    Which one is correct?
    I'd like to sympathize the action, rather than WHO did it.
    Please help me out.

    I'd like to sympathize focus on the action, rather than WHO who did it.
