Exchange 2010 mailbox copy "Disconnected and Resynchronizing"

We had a serious power outage and lost all power to my Exchange environtment.

When the CAS/HUB and Mailbox servers came online I notice that one of my MB copys on one of the Mailbox servers stated "Disconnected and Resynchronizing" with the error:

incremental reseed of database copy "mailbox\mailbox_server" due to a network error. The database copy status will be set to Disconnected. Error An error occurred while communicating with server 'mailbox_server"'. Error: Unable to read data from the transport connection: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

This happened on Thursday and on Monday morning the sync never happened. Is there a way to just stop the re-sync, delete the corrupted version and have it re-sync. I would assume I just delete it from the EMC, delete the files on the replcated server and then re-sync??

I  might be over simplfying it a bit but hopefully that is something I can do with little downtime.

Sadly all I have is "Suspend Database Copy", "Active Database Copy" and "remove", no "Update" option at all.

I just decided to remove the copy and files and resync up everything.
