Hard Drive failure & free space RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a WHS with 4 x 1 TB drives and 1 x 2TB Drive, all shared folders have duplication on. My 2 TB is now failing intermittently and the Seagate tools are showing SMART-Fail so I have ordered a new drive to replace it with (same make & size). My plan is to add the new drive and cross my fingers that I can remove the faulty drive gracefully which should hopefully mean I will not lose any data. If I can't get the faulty 2 TB drive to work for the period required, will I lose any data ?
