    • Its best to make a backup before doing the following:

      Go to Raid Management and press remove.
      Select the drive you wish to remove.
      Now the raid will be degraded.
      Shutdown OMV
      Remove bad drive from system add new drive.
      Then add the new drive to the degraded raid. The raid will be rebuilt.
      If something is going to go wrong it is in the rebuild. If the other drive has issues then you have big problems without a backup.
      Don't do anything to the bad drive till everything the raid is synchronized.

      Good Luck.
