bad drive issues
Posted on 2014-11-10
I have a client running SBS 2011, on a Power R720, They are running a Dell Power Edge R710 with 64GB (a waist), with a RAID 1, and a RAID 5 (3 drives), recently we had a drive fail and everything has done downhill.
Now Dell support is telling me the issue is related to bad blocks on drive 4, but the bad blocks have spread to 4 of the five drives (by the way Open manager is not reporting errors other then on one drive). and the only way to fix the issue is to copy the data, delete the RAID, replace all the drives and reinstall Windows from scratch.
Has anybody ever heard of bad block spreading between drives on a RAID.
