Yes, I'm on the way to do that.. but I need to make sure it up at least for the weeks so I could have a time to rebuild the new one and restore the current backup.. currently, after a couple of hour or sometimes a day, the hdd was remount read-only automagicaly and the only solutions I do is reboot the server so it was properly mount read-write.. this will last for hours or day only, then I need to reboot again..

Thanks in advances,
