    How to correct a Missing Hard Drive in RAID 5 config




      After a problem on my BIOS forcing me to reset to default settings, I had the very dissatisfying surprise to see my RAID 5 down.

      I had 4 WD Green 2To connected and working for now a while.

      Now I have 2 out of 4 in the RAID conf but 2 other setup as independant drives.

      I'm searching for a way to reconfigure those independant HDD back into the RAID conf without losing data.


      Could someone tell me if breaking the RAID conf then rebuilding a RAID 5 would work (and get the data back)

      Someone has a white paper explaining how the Intel Matrix tool operate concerning RAID 5 creation and deletion?


      Any information would be welcomed.
