WHS Hangs Before "Remove Disk" Has Finished RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently went about the process of removing one of my WHS disks to replace with a larger one.  Everything seemed to be going fine - data was being removed from the disk in question, and being added to the other 3 on my server.  I let it run overnight and in the morning the disk showed 0% content but the progress bar hadn't quite finished.  I let it run all day while I was at work, but it was in the same state when I returned home.  I let it run 1 more night, but no change the next morning so I rebooted the server.  Since then, every time (I've tried 4 or 5 times now) I attempt to "finish" the removal, the progress bar never moves at all and nothing ever seems to happen, although some disk activity can be heard.  After transferring the data off this disk, it left my 2 other "data" disks at 100% and my system disk at 76%.

    Any ideas where to go from here?  My data disks are all Seagate 1.5 TB "green".
