Is it safe to reboot a Netgear Readynas 4360 while a disk sync is in process?

Have a netgear readynas 4360 with 12 raid 10 drives in it for my main volume/share. Recently one of the 10 TB drives failed and netgear said it needed to be replaced so I just replaced it to at 5PM today and it has seriously degraded my production environments performance which is currently running on the volume/share. I was considering rebooting the 4360 while the sync was in process to see if it helps productions performance or the disk to sync any faster as it currently show it will take 83 days to finish syncing????

Is it safe to reboot the 4360 during a disk sync?

Just let it run, One reason to have 2 storage arrays to sync each other.

Personally i would never reboot a nas while it is rebuilding the array.  but thats properly just me being an old timer, and never touching anything while it is working.

Well sometimes it works ...sometimes it won't...i am pretty sure that it won't take 83 days and probably would fininish much faster if you weren't using it in the mean time ...but for now i don't believe that a reboot would be helpful...

Generally it is safe because a good NAS stores the progress info on the drive. But as noted above - it depends.
