    :)Let me ask a hypothetical question here that one of you nice people might be able to shed some light on. If you’re doing a raid 1 mirrored drive set up. Let say one drive dies, you get the critical error message and replace that drive with a new one that is identical. Will it automatically load the new drive upon boot or is there other criteria involved. Thanks for your help, Bob

    At the same time you get an error message, some sort of rebuild option should also pop up or be ready when the drive is replaced and it will either do it automatically or when you give it the ok to use the drive in the RAID 1. I don't know for sure since mine has yet to fail or give any error message, but there has to be an easy solution or its not very useful to place two drives in RAID 1 in the first place.

    Thanks for the reply, I agree but that is whats happening to me. Just a message that says critical and nothing else. Even when I insert another drive into the array. The board does not ask me to do anything. Strange. Bob
