    Just want to be clear. I want to make my #2 Hard Drive my #1 Hard Drive.  I then want to replace my #2 with a new (bigger) hard drive. So, do I eject #1 first? Do I have to move my #2 connection? Or after I eject #1, will #2 automatically become the new #1? LOL

    I also wish to remove my primary drive, keep my backup, and add a new drive to replace the primary. When I attempt to eject the primary, I get "an unexpected error" and the drive remains active. I would also love to know what "are [the] several steps currently involved."

    My dad's primary drive failed/corrupted and he's trying to 

    1. Forget the primary drive (this produces an "unexected error")

    2. Convert the secondary drive to the primary (stalls out at 0% indefinitely)

    3. Add a new harddrive to be the new backup drive

     

    Is there a proper order of operations to achieve this?

    Has anyone found a way to replace a dead primary drive?!
    My primary drive died and now I can't remove it and promote the backup drive, but getting the "Unexpected error"..

    Completely defeats the entire purpose of having a backup drive.

    I'm seriously scared, see other people having the same issue in two years and still no response or update here on it?
