Adding new Drive to middle of Array


Recommended Posts

Currently i have the following:

 

2x 12tb HDD parity

(Disk 1-8) 8x 10tb HDD (used only for media)

(Disk 9/10) 2x 4tb HDD everything else

 

I would like to add another 10tb drive, and would love for it to be drive 9, instead of 11 so that all my 10 tb and media collection stays in a better visual order for me. Is there a guide on adding a drive, while also changing the order of the drivers, or some guide which would provide the best experience?

 

Also, since I have just migrated to 6.9, would it be better to create a HDD pool for just my media content so that I can add drives to it without this issue in the future? I dont see much guidance in the forums about that.

You can do that with a new config, but parity2 will need to be re-synced.
