: Failed Drive in Raid 5, replaced disk. Does Restructuring erase existing data?
: mnovak2 June 23, 2014, 07:13:24 AM
Failed Drive in Raid 5, replaced disk.  Does Restructuring erase existing data?  If I check the box of the newly installed drive and select "restructure raid array".  Will it simply restore the raid on the new disk?  Or will I lose my data, shares, permissions etc?

Checking before I submit.

It just formats the disk and adds it back to the RAID, you should not lose any data.
