there are no io-errors... but as the hd makes really scary noise when pvmove 
tries to move the remaining bytes. so i think the hd is damaged.
but all i want is to remove the damaged hd.
but pvreduce says i have to use pvmove to get rid of the remaining data and 
pvmove gives the errors...
so i can't remove it :/ - is there a way to get rid of the hd without 
destroying the rest of the data ? sth. like pvreduce --force ?

how can i do this ? i'm not a coder but if someone has too much time... ;)

if there's no other way to get rid of the damaged hd... that would be also a 
way to solve my problem.
btw: could there be a problem with using reiserfs on the lvm ?

ps: at the moment i try a "dd if=/dev/hdh1 of=/dev/null" to see if it also 
complains about errors...
