[4.7] Replacing a failed drive with a larger drive. [SOLVED]

Recommended Posts



Really quick (hopefully easy) question for someone, I've googled and found scenarios close to mine but not exact - I have a failed 2TB drive in my array and my parity drive is only 2TB, can i replace the failed drive with a 3TB drive? I'm not expecting all 3TB to be usable but will it rebuild my data or complain one of my data drives is larger than parity?


The server has been offline for over a year so I'm hoping other drives are OK and yes I know it's super old, I'm currently building a replacement unRaid 6 box.


I don't think spec or any further details are needed but if they are please just let me know and i will provide.
