    Rebuild RAID Sophie's Choice?

    T-Bone

      Ok, so this is probably a fairly simple question.. And forgive me as I'm a little new to this.  Basically we have a server utilizing an Intel RAID controller on the motherboard.  We're managing this through the OS using Intel Rapid Storage 9.6.  We got a message that our RAID was degraded.  This was setup before my time, but it appears to be a RAID with 2 volumes - 1, 164GB volume and 1, 3652GB volume.  So we identified and replaced the bad drive and now want to rebuild.. but it gives us a choice as to which volume to repair - and when we choose one, it gives a warning that if we rebuild this one, the other one will be permanently inaccessible.  Obviously we don't  want to lose data on either volume.. and I'm thinking that we're just reading this statement wrong.. but I'd feel more comfortable with some clarification as to what this message means and what do do in this situation.  See picture attached...

       

      Thanks!
