  1. Thank you! My Parity drive is 1TB, I was intending on converting the Parity to a 2TB drive and using the 1TB and add it as an additional member of the array.
  2. Excellent! Thank you that helps out a lot, also one more question. If I add more drives other drives (of different sizes) would UNRAID throw a fit? I purchased a license 3 years ago to do just this, I just never done it since I had no room to expand. Again, thank you for answering my question.
  3. Hello, Let's start this with the standard, I am a bit of a novice when it comes to UNRAID so by no means am I an expert. I have been an UNRAID user since 2011 and have been running it on an HP NL36 Micro server, this little guy has been running like a trooper and without any major issues, in January I replaced a faulty PSU and this system has since been running flawlessly. About 5 months ago I purchased a Proliant ML10 server with a Xeon e3 1241 processor, to use as my ESXi Host for my home lab. Needless to say I have had lots of issues with my ESX host and had to rebuild it a few times, I have finally come to the realization that perhaps it is time to upgrade my NL36 server to the Proliant box. So here are my questions, - I am going to do the upgrade, my real concern is my data from the Micro server to the new server. If I physically take the drives out from one server to another, does the new hardware recognize the drives and data? It can't be that simple can it? - Since I have not had the horsepower to run VM's on my micro server I am not familiar how the VM environment of the OS would be. I am sure several people here are running this setup, would you mind briefly answering, whether it runs great or there is some work to get it to run. - My setup would mainly be used to run media applications, such as Plex, Airsonic, DelugeVPN, as well as HomeAssistant (So far this is what I run in my server) - For those of you who have done this in the past what was your solution from transferring your data to your new hardware or drives? With the new system, I purchased additional storage to run near-line in my ESX host I intend to run those drives but as I mentioned before if it's as easy as moving drives from one server to another then I might not do that simply because I do not want to loose all of my data. Thank you for you looking and thank you for your assistance! Cheers!

    HP N40L died...now what?

    Hi, I am running the same server and have been since 2012. Earlier this year, my PSU died as well and ended up replacing it with a refurbished one. It's been running great ever since, but the AMD Athlon II is not up to snuff for running VM's and now I am torn about replacing this little bogger that's been running strong for a long time. Are you by chance still running your Micro server? And how does it perform with running VM's on it.
