Shrinking Array, Can't Change/Unassign Drives

4 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

I'm removing a drive I no longer need, the drives works, just unnecessary. I've followed the instructions for "The "Clear Drive Then Remove Drive" Method" here (https://wiki.unraid.net/Shrink_array). I'm on step 13, but when I try to select unassigned for the disk I'm removing, the page refreshes and the drive still shows up. No matter what I change, try and add the hot swap as a new drive, unassign any other drive, the page just refreshes with the exact some unchanged drive assignments.

 

Edit: I'm using 6.7.2

Seems browser problem, does you turn-on auto refresh ? Pls try other browser.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just tried it on Firefox, Chrome and Edge on two different computers. I also tried it on my phone with Chrome and the same issue occurred each time.

So I ended up rebooting and had to reassign every drive, checked that parity was valid, ran a parity check after, and all is good!
