I have a full node synced using
--warp but since I have a hdd, the final bit of the sync never catches up(due to the high transaction IO). How do I switch to a light clent on parity if I already have most of the chain data?

parity --light db kill(this isn't a big deal as pre-verified blocks are downloaded so even from fresh, should only take a few minutes)
- Start the light sync:
