chkdisk "correcing error indexes" during boot
Posted on 2008-10-07
I have 1 RAID5 system, running 1 physical disk as OS volume C:, 2 arrays as volume D: (4TB) and E: (8TB).
Somehow, I believe the D: has 1 bad disk which has been constantly kicked out of the array after we loaded the array with data. I, temporarily, reboot each time to have the disk merge into the array and sync all data.
however, this time, the boot processes initiate chkdsk and running at "correcting error indexes at ......"
The LEDs indicated the array D: is working.
I'm curious if
1. can I disable this chkdsk next time? I tried to intervene at boot, but I failed.
2. how long this process typically will take? I'm afraid it might take hours since that is a 4TB array.
3. will data be erase? I understand that chkdisk won't do this, but just make sure.
