I have not found the way to do that in the documentation.


I have 3 disks in Raid1e and a 4th as a spare.  I would like to migrate to Raid 10 and use the spare disk in the array to increase capacity.


Thank you for the help

Hi Ignacio,

It is recommended that copy complete data backup and delete the existing array and recreate an array with RAID 10 Setup.

Thank you
