Replaced failing drive in RAID 5 Array now almost all folders are empty
Posted on 2012-12-27
My supervisor replaced a failing drive we had in our RAID 5 array on our PE2900 xmas eve,. I come in today and go to browse the network shares we have for that array and all folders are empty but the free/available space is the same as it was prior to replacing the bad drive, just now no data, but the drive we replaced now has an orange LED. I cannot restart the server for a few hours as people are using one of the VMs that's hosted in Hyper-V.
Any idea how to fix this? I've never seen this before. It's a PERC 6/i controller.
