    I'm really hating freenas right now as the interface led to me adding a single VDEV to a Raidz2 Pool and I believe there are no ways to remove it without rebuilding the pool. I have a pool of 7 4TB SATA drives in a SA120 enclosure so I have another 5 bays I can populate drives. If I populate with 4 x 8TB drives, Raidz2, I will have 16TB of usable space which is enough to backup 13TB of data I have. Also, am I able to populate SAS drives along with SATA drives in my SA120 enclosure?

    This is what I currently have in my pool:

    Code:
    root@nas:~ # zpool status
      pool: NAS
     state: ONLINE
      scan: scrub repaired 0 in 8 days 04:21:57 with 0 errors on Sat Aug 18 18:39:50 2018
    config:
    
        NAME                                            STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM

    And this was the offending line that added a single 8GB drive (missing the log directive):

    Code:
    2018-10-09.00:07:42 zpool add -f NAS /dev/gptid/fe6b3410-cb91-11e8-ac9a-000c2931f706
    Please, if anyone is in the bay area willing to lend a hand, please PM me!

    If you were in Portland I'd just lend you a 12TB and a thumb drive. :)

    Good luck on the evac.

    I could do with 3 8TB drives as I only have ~10TB of data. I'd be risking my data with one drive failure though.

    Thanks!

    To give some more incentive, I'll throw in an Aquantia 10G network card if I can borrow the drives.

    I can't do 8TBs right now, but can grab you 5 x 4TB if you'll cover shipping

    Just want to say that you guys are amazing. The thought of borrowing hardware for temporary use has never crossed my mind. I've bought stuffs that ended up on the shelves for years just because I only needed it for a few days.

    I have 2 Brand New Seagate Enterprise 10TB SATA's sitting in my garage rack. Haven't used them yet, but they might help. I'm in Hayward, work in Santa Clara .

    Whoa, thanks for the offers. 2 x 10TB has enough space for sure but I would prefer 3 or 4 drives raid with 1 or 2 drive failure when the data is being shuffled around. The plan is to meet Patrick on Monday and if I need anything else, i'll shout out.

    I think @Kev is going to regret his lunchtime decisions today :) Good seeing you again.

    Good seeing you and the datacenter! You are right, I'm thinking about my colocation options now. Thanks! :(
