Wondering why all dynamic volumes Raid5 array have the "Reactivate Disk" option under the right click?

My only guess is that it could be becuase I just created the array, quck formatted it and its now "29% complete on the Resynch"

Here's a screen cap...be sure to maximize it in IE, i know it's huge but I didnt have time to scale it down and keep it viewable and i had to cap the entire monitor screen cause when i hit alt it makes the context window (right click) go away.

Also, all volumes 0 - 7 with the exception of the system volume 2, have the "Reactivate Disk" available.

Thanks all...

Yes, this will go away after the synch occurs.... reactivate is used to fix synch problems..

Thanks for the quick replies,

Does it always resync when first created?  I have never paied attention before but on creation I would have figured it would have said Syncing...

no biggie though, i will award points if they go away after the resync

thx

It is very seldom that I create software based raid sets...  but I believe your screen shot looks normal to me...  You just need to wait for the initial synch to occur...
