Change out HDD in a Win10 mirrored Storage Space?

Hey. I posted this in the Storage forum as well, but I thought it might get a bit better notice here since it's a Windows 10-specific question, more or less.

I'm using Shared Spaces in Windows 10, and I have two 4TB HDDs set up as a mirror. One of the drives is making weird noises, so I'd like to swap that drive out for a fresh one without data loss.

When I go to Change settings, there's no way for me to remove one of the physical drives from the mirror. Do I need to plug in a third drive and then it'll let me swap one in? Do I have to delete the mirror and recreate it using a new drive? Or maybe there's something else?

  1. You should be able to add the drive to the existing mirror with no issues and remove the desired one with no consequences.
