Unraid - replacing disk without parity

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've been running my unRAID server for about 6 months now with 2x2tb drives (1 green and 1 red) and a 6 tb green drive. I recently got notified that my green 2tb drive was failing and has multiple SMART errors and bad sectors. I, fortunately, found a 2TB purple drive lying around and decided to replace the green drive with the purple drive. I have no Parity setup on the server yet. 


Is there a way to remove all the info from the green drive named (sdb) to the new drive named (sdd) without having to set up a parity disk. the failing driver and the new drive both are 2TB each.


the new 2TB purple driver has been precleared and awaiting mounting.
