  • Lift the drive carrier up and away from the drive drawer
  • Install the replacement HDD by using the lever to lower the replacement HDD into the drawer slot
    NOTE: Due to manufacturer changes, replacement drives may be larger than the original failed hardware on your cluster. Qumulo Core will only use a portion of the drive that corresponds to the original size to account for the difference.
  • Press the lever down to slide and lock the drive into place
