Is there a way to force "remove" free drives, while other disks are in "failed" or "blocked" state ? 
In a VSP G200 with DB60 disk array, there's 2 disks installed as "free", which of course can be turned as spare disks. There's 2 more disks installed as spare. The problem is that 2 DATA disks has failed and the 2 spares took the job. Is there a way to force remove the "free" disks in order to replace the failed ones ?. The disks can't be removed, a message telling that there's failed or blocked parts exist, restore them first.
