I have a Windows 2000 SBS server with 4 Raptor SATA drives - 2-36 gig software mirrored as the C partition and 2-73 gig as the D drive. Event viewer is showing a bad block on drive 0 - the primary drive. I have an identical drive as the one that has the bad block.  Before doing anything I will Ghost the C partition onto an IDE drive. Once I have done that I am wondering what is the best way of replacing the drive with the bad block. Simply swap the good new drive for the bad old drive and boot up - will the orphaned remaining mirror automatically remirror to the new system - or do I have to do some prep work?
