Software Raid 3TB rebuild time

How long could it take for a 3TB SATA drive to rebuild.
I replaced a drive in SuperMicro Server.  Mirrored drives. Rebuild running through the LSI Software Raid Config. (Ctrl + M on startup)

Another hour goes by and it changed to 2%.
Is this what we are looking at 1% per hour or could it somehow speed up?

If you did not select to check the deives then it should run faster. But normally this slowness is normal. You need simply to wait.

It could take DAYS to rebuild and that would be normal. It could be worse if you skimped on your drives and got a consumer grade drive, like say, a WD Green or Red drive. This is why RAID arrays with very large drives should have double-redundancy and an amazing backup or replication process in place.
