Unhappy LVM issues


I am currently running several drives as part of an LVM. One ov the drives is beginning to fail. I want to know if it is possible to remove a drive from an LVM without losing data.

Please respond soon, as I don't know how lont the drive will last.

Thanks

Barry S

You will need to use pvmove to move the data from the drive.
