My raid 5 server nas from iomega has crashed the technical department say its the operating system as we had a message on screen and they told us.
Any way they are now saying they are sending out another hard drive with the o/s but when i plug that in i am going to loose all the data.
I was under the impression if i had raid 5 what is happening is each hard drive sync to another so if one goes down the other continues.
But now if i install o/s i loose all my data.
I have a server gateway and the drives are on D, E, F and i have rebuilt the o/s and never lost the data.
Maybe i am misuderstand the raid technology.......
Any clarification would be appreciated before i have to rely on my backups...
