Rebuilding RAID 1 - Degraded HD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    This may sound like a really simple question.

    But I have the below scenario.

    I have a RAID 1 Configuration which basically reported a degraded status in one of the hard disk.

    I know that in order to fix the problem, I ought to replace the degraded hard disk with a new hard disk matching the same capacity. I have also found the rebuilding option under my RAID Controller, so the next thing to do is probably replace the hard disk and boot up the machine, follow by rebuilding the raid. 

    Now my concern is this, by rebuilding the RAID 1, will I end up wiping out / erasing the data on the master disk?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Well the old response was for WHS is: RAID is not supported.  For WHS 2011, RAID is great and will solve all your problems.  Given that, your question is best answered by the supplier of the RAID hardware.
