Raid 1 failure this am. I have two WD 1T drives in a raid 1 aray. the Intel storage manager reports the status as "Rebuild" with one drive status = "SMART Event(0)" in yellow and the other as "Member Disk(0)" in green.
(See attached screen pic)
The options are 1. Create RAID Volume or 2. Reset Disks to Non-RAID.
There is a notation at the bottom of the screen "Volumes with a REBUILD status will be rebuild within the operation systyem."
First time problem. Not sure how to proceed to insure no data loss. I have an online backup for data but not system files. Logic would tell me to select option 1 and let it rebuild the problem drive if it is not trashed. Not sure the remaining drive will be usable if I select Reset to Non-Raid. Thinking I should just replace the bad drive and let the storage manager recreate the Raid Volume. What to do????
