Hi dark22,

Depending on how busy the system is, a rebuilt can take between 4 to 12 hours.


Hope This helps

Its disk 0 and the system will not boot so its just sat in the bios
what im not sure of is weather the bios will up date to say the
drive is on line.

Do you know if i reboot does it start rebuilding from scratch
or does it carry on from where it left off.

if you are in the bios is there not some utility to see how far along it has got?

I am not 100% sure on the reboot option so I will not say just incase
