So we had a nice chat with few devs and one dev said that i should just swap HDD cause i needed it at the moment. So i did.
Me the freaking idiot at the moment didnt realize that no the 0.5Tb HDD isnt SSD and that it needs to stop rotating otherwise there can be hardware damage and not umounting it will lead to issues.
So i disconnected the HDD. (Bless servers for this amazing thing called hot pluggable drive bays. Lovely thing i tell you) and after fixing it i plugged it back in.
Oh what is this ? Input output error ?
Ohhh Fuck. (This is the moment i realized i fucked up 0.5Tb of data).
Me the lucky idiot at the moment decided to backup all the data to second HDD since i knew the drive bay had to be fixed so i did that before doing this.
So what did i learn ?
Unmount the drives, Sync them, Stop the drive spinning. Then unplug them.

    External drive array I assume? Ask because my integrated blades with make a loud screeching sound if you open the lock on the drive bay and it's still powered up.

    @SortOfTested not external drive bay. This is enterprise grade server ;)
    Front is full of drive bays.

    @Haxk20 "enterprise grade" ooh, are you on a star ship?!

    Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. My SAN storage blades that are in external U with F-HBSAs make a ridiculous noise if you open the slot security bar and the drive is still powered. Has saved my ass a number of times.

    @Demolishun Nah just a normal house. Full of cool tech.

    Like you may be joking on the enterprise grade shit.

    But its really awesome what it gives you.

    @Haxk20 Yeah, I buy server grade drives for doing backups. I hope they are better...

    @Demolishun Well server grade HDDs are SAS. So IDK if you will be able to use them in normal PC with SATA only.

    @Haxk20 Well it was the red drives from WD. I guess those are NAS. Anyway, I use USB drive SATA interface to backup to them.

    Now that I look I don't know wtf I have. It is not NAS either. Its a sata drive. It has a red label.
