    Drive Failure During Migration

    jonjon1123

      Hello,

       

      I am in the middle of a migration that is trying to add 2 new 1.5 TB drives to my existing RAID 5 array of 4 1.5 TB drives. It is about half way through (51%) after 1.5 weeks (it is taking forever to migrate, any way to make it go faster?) and I now see that I have a drive failure. I try to access some of the content on this array and I can't get to some of it because it says the data is corrupted. My question is do I wait until the migration is complete and then replace the drive? Or do I replace the drive right now in the middle of a migration? The array is not a system array, it is just a storage array. My OS is on another HDD. What would you all recommend as my path forward?

       

      System Specs:

      Windows 7 64bit

      Intel ICH10R

      Intel Matrix Storage Manager 8.9

       

      Thank you in advance for the help!
