Just converted a 2-disk Linux MD RAID 1 array to a 4-disk MD RAID 5 array, online, with just a couple of commands. Now I get to watch it reshape with "watch cat /proc/mdstat". Better than Netflix, this is.

@penguin42 I am confident it's fine. It's only my media box, so it's just movies / photos / music etc. I have all of that elsewhere I think. :D
@popey /proc/mdstat and chill
@popey that sounds terrifying.
