I am about to remove a complete RAID 5 array from a server in order to raplace it with larger disks. Besides my security backups that I'll perform beforehand, I was wondering something about the array as is before the removal. Say I would want to put the removed disks of the array back into the server in the same locations and order, would the system be able to read the data again after I would recreate the array? This is one of those things about which you wonder once in a while and it's been driving me crazy on occasions. This is about knowing for the sake of it.
Thanks in advance.
