Hello, I have one 1tb WD drive as paraity and another for data plus two segate 500G drives.

Any suggestions as I have no money to upgrade?

Some are old with 4-5 hour runtime and 2 are around 1 year.

Thankyou

Taking your thread title at face value, I recommend keeping a full up to date backup of your 1TB data drive on your 2 500GB drives, preferably disconnecting and storing them in a safe spot between backups.
