What file system are your current data drives formatted with? unRAID allows you to use filled disks but only if they are already formatted with the ReiserFS, XFS or Btrfs filesystems. But not ext4 or NTFS.
So if they are formatted with NTFS for example, you would need to add at least 2 drives to the unRAID array (1 parity, 1 data) and then one by one you could transfer data from your old disks to the new array adding each drive to the array after you've copied the data off it to the new unRAID array.
Feel free to give it a trial run
. I think it's a fantastic solution for home media servers.
