Have you figured out what was causing this method to be unsuitably slow for most people? The last time I tried, it was on pace to take more than a week to clear a 2TB drive in a healthy array.

Oh wow! I used the 1st method and a 60% full 6tb drive took almost 19 hours to clear. 


I am still trying to figure a way to remove remaining 6TB drives, 4 of them, shrink the array, but I hope I can find a way while still having access to docker. Unbalance only works on 1 disk at a time, so 19 hours times 4, too much down time.. Should I just remove two drives at time of the 4's and let parity rebuild? There are 2 12tb parity drives. Any ideas?
