Replace UNRAID array and parity with 2 larger drives

When I first got into unraid a few years back I bought a used HPE gen10 microserver that came with two 4TB drives that were used. I haven't had any problems but I wanted to get new and larger drives as my data is growing. 

Is there a guide or a step-by-step to do this on version 6.12.4? I tried to find it in the documentation but it's going to a dead link and I'm really not sure I was in the right place. Here's where I looked:

https://docs.unraid.net/legacy/FAQ/replacing-a-data-drive/parity-swap-procedure.md/

Can someone direct me to the right procedure or copy and paste it here so I don't screw it up?

Thanks in advance!

Both the links you posted go to obsolete documentation.  The online documentation is accessible via the ‘Manual’ link at the bottom of the GUI or the DOCS link at the top of each forum page. The Unraid OS->Manual section in particular covers most features of the current Unraid release.

 

The section on replacing disks is here.   You will need to upgrade parity first as no data drive can be larger than the smallest parity drive.
