Spanning setup swapping drives to new chassis

I have a spanning setup and my chassis has failed. Can I take the two exisiting drive and swap them into a new chassis without losing my data?

I’m gussing if the configuration for the unit is stored on the drives, I should be able to swap disks into a new chassis and be ready to go. I would simply put drive 1 in bay 1 from the old chassis into bay 1 of the new chassis, likewise for drive 2.

Thoughts or ideas?

Hello and welcome to the WD community.

That’s correct, you should be able to do this and you should get an option to do data roaming and have the data the same way it was on the other enclosure The drives must be in the same order they were on the previous enclosure.
