    I have a system with RAID 5 built into the motherboard with three 500GB drives and I am not sure how to go about troubleshooting the system. It has failed and I cannot get into the system.

  • How to rebuild RAID without obstructing data migration?

    I see why RAID rebuilds obstruct data migration. A RAID rebuild is NOT like backup and restore. The rebuild consumes resources, e.g. CPU etc. So if we have the RAID on a separate system (managed by its own CPU) then: Surely this allows a RAID rebuild without obstructing data migration? Do you...

Obviously, the disk performance is going to suffer since both OS and DATA will live on the same mirrored disks, however, this part of disk configuration puzzles me even more: a...
