Neglected parity check, drive clicks

Hey guys,


I'm kind of in an unpleasent situation. Because I'm an idiot I neglected parity checks for the last 300 days. My array consists of 4 10 TB HDDs (one parity). Now I hear that one drive is clicking quite loud when it spins up. So I'm pretty certain it will die some time soon...


Now, what do I do? Would it be better to do a parity check? Or just swap the drive as soon as possible? Help 😱

But is there anything to be gained?


If there are no errors, all is good, but I lost time.


If there are errors, Id have to rebuilt and stress the drive even more.


Maybe I'm not correct here, which is why I'm asking. Thank you very much!
