This pertains to Small Business Server on an XP system that is 2 years old.
Found a "bad block" in my event view. The Disk Manager shows one of the raid drives with and exclamation point, but it shows healthy. I can right click and it shows I can reactivate it. I have never done this so would like to know what it will do.

Any other suggestions?

What RAID level were you running? Assuming RAID-1 it should re-activate the array.

If you have a bad block you need to at least test the drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics to see if its a small number of bad sectors that can be isolated from use but you should think about replacing the drive before you experience data loss.

Thanks, it worked. All looks ok. It is set to defrag on Saturday's so it may do it again, next Saturday.

Appreciate your reply.

Well if don't care about your data then you don't have to test or replace the drive...but most people would take some measures now.

I do intend to replace the drives. We do care about the data.

Thanks for the replies.
