Is possible to replace at the same time parity and 1 data drive?


Recommended Posts


I have an array with two parity drives, 1x 4TB + 1x 3TB.

One of the data drives in the array is failing, and have just finished clearing a 4TB drive.

Is it posible to replace the failing drive with the smaller parity, an the latest with the new 4TB I've just precleared?

Interesting question. I've not seen anyone ask this with 2 parity drives. Not sure if the usual "parity swap" procedure would apply or maybe a New Config with trust parity, keeping whatever parity you want to keep in its correct parity slot.


I see johnnie.black has already responded, but didn't really tell us what he had in mind. If anyone knows how to proceed here it would be him.


Probably a good idea to post your diagnostics. That would answer some of my questions at least. Go to Tools - Diagnostics and post the complete diagnostics zip.
