  1. Windows 10 says the flash drive has no errors. Oh it booted once right after I upgraded and no luck after that. (Rebooted again for the system couldn't find my last four drives)
  2. Ok so I stopped the 4TB parity drive just right before it's going over to the next phase of writing zeros and the stuff. Stopped it at 99% of pre-reading and..... the parity is still valid!

So stupid of me I know Question is, it's still in pre-reading phase right now so.. can I cancel it and still be able to use the parity drive? What I'm doing right now is that I want to use a new Toshiba HDD for the parity. I'm using unRaid version 6.0.1 and preclear version 1.15.
