Replace parity with larger drive in a dual parity setup?

Recommended Posts

You technically could, but it would make recovery much more difficult if one of your data drives decided to act up during the parity build.


Much safer to do a simple standard replacement of one of the parity drives, let that complete, then add the drive you unassigned back as a data drive.


After you have an old parity drive assigned as a data drive, be sure to make a new flash backup and destroy any obsolete copies of the super.dat file that are hanging around in old backups.
