Hello

So one of my drives failed from the Raid so now i am trying to add it and i am not able to

I made this video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FA_frwDdTmo

also i am reading this wiki page
Dealing with a dropped disk in Transparent RAID
http://wiki.flexraid.com/2013/06/27/transparent-raid-dealing-with-a-dropped-disk/

Not sure what to do as Hard drive failed because of the SATA Port in The Motherboard caused it or the SATA Cable either way i move the drive to a different SATA 6 port and all data on the drive are just fine but i notice

1- all drives latter and disk locations has changed under windows disk manger
2- all drive latter and disk locations in tRaid remain same as old setup
3- Raid Failed to Verify & Sync task on the array as part 6 of the instructions

My other option is to delete Raid config and re add all drives and then create a new raid setup and use the same parity, because the parity is from tRaid it wont take long and all drives will show up and i can then run sync + Verify option but i am not sure if this will work or not

Can someone please advise


Thanks

Here is my setup of tRaid now everything is working properly and i am very happy :) However i run into a new issue and it is possible that it is not tRaid related i will post the video and screenshots after this update

Please note tRaid is working just fine
