    Hi all, I wrote not long ago about the best way to upgrade disks when using RAID1. I've now managed to copy all contents from my 2 original volumes, into 2 identical (but larger) volumes on the new larger disk.

  • Fail over with two disk hardware mirror

    If I currently have a two disk hardware mirror or RAID 1 can I migrate the data from them to a RAID 5 array by adding 4 more drives? Do I need all 6 drives in the array or can I make one of them hot swappable in case something goes wrong? Will it fail over automatically? I am using a Windows Server...

  • Drive failed in RAID 5. Hotspare did not kick in.

    One drive failed in a 6 drive raid 5 array. There was a hot spare but it did not kick in. It says offline. What needs to be done to return the array to full working condition? I would like a hot spare as well.
