Broken RAID5... Please help!!!
Posted on 2006-06-02
Ok, yesterday in an attempt to reclaim some space on a Web Drive we began a Paragon partition resize (which has ran without a hitch in the past... Windows Server 2003 Enterprise, HP ProLiant)... The job was submitted, the server rebooted and it seemd that everything was running right BUT after reboot the server showed the Web Drive with the same capacity as before but now showed 190GB in free space that could not be touched... I saw it in DiskManager but only was given the "Properties" option for it... Restarted Paragon and Paragon can't seem to be able to touch the free space either... So this morning we attempted a repartition with a different program which apparently worked fine as we now have 145GB free on the Web Drive...
What I'm saying is that I know I the RAID is screwed up, but how bad? :)
