I Need Some Help With My Raid Array.please!

In RAID 0+1, you take a set of drives that striped in RAID 0 configuration (so they're acting like one hard drive) and then you mirror them in a RAID 1 Proffitt Forum moderator / February 7, 2016 11:30 AM PST In reply to: RAID 1 Mirror rebuild help, please?

This is getting weirder and weirder.... The only difference I see is that on a Backup (for this example lets consider it to be a 3 disks raid5) only the two hard disks need to be read I know yall can, cmon you are hard gurus! Just proceed to install windows as you normally would and if the drives do not show up (Where you choose a drive to install windows to) then you'll want to load

My statements are based on that experience and that of my many colleagues. With the technolgy evolving yes drives are cheap hense RAID Redundnat array of inexpensive drives HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That just means you've lost the +1 part of the array.Of course the safe way forward would be to make images/clones of the members in RAID0 and manually merge the array But backup technolgy of IN USE FILES has evolved.

  1. The rebuild happens on just the replaced device, the data on the other disks stays untouched.
  2. This process, so you call it, is the same to me, wether I rebuild or Backup.
  3. I've seen rebuilds thrash drives for several days continuously.
  4. A firmware update for your raid controller might be in order.
  5. As the raid pros know (and this noobie from screwing it up before) if you start a former raid array once to windows, it brakes it for good...
  6. The only exception to that am I who had a second failed drive on a RAID5 array, but luckily, thanks to the awesome LSI support, I could restore the array.

Yet when it showed the drives in the black screen just before Win7 I quickly saw it recognized my ssd and HDD's but it was so fast I couldnt see if RAID 6 helps, of course, but when dealing with arrays of 14 drives or more, the risks increase exponentially.

It just sounds a bit unrealistic to me that a rebuild would have so much more failure rate than a backup, since I have not yet experienced a rebuild problem.
