    Can we use two raid groups at a time in a storage system? ie can we use both raid 10 and raid 6 on the same set of drives?

  • Question about RAID 1

    I have a server with a RAID-1 array with 2 36 gig hard drives. I am wondering could I get another 2 hard drives and add them to the array, and then extend some already partitioned space without formatting?

  • What are the signs my RAID array is dying?

    What are the signs that my RAID array is dying? Are there checks I can run? Can I add a hot spare to a RAID array with 6 disks in it? Will this help if one drive fails? What if multiple drives fail, what do I do then?

  • 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...
