Hi, I've brought a server home to sort out a raid issue and backup data.
My raid issue5 had a2 drives intact, I've added a 3rd drive. And the rebuild has kicked in.

Can i turn the server off whilst it's at a few percent and take it back to the office or do i need to let it finish

It's a dell t300 with a perc  6 card
