So, I'm doing my best to follow this guide here: http://wiki.flexraid.com/2013/06/27/restoring-a-failed-disk-in-transparent-raid/
I had a failed 3TB disk.
I turned off the array.
I removed it physically, put in a new 4TB disk.
I then registered the new disk.
Then, I clicked on the dropped disk (no longer in the server) clicked "restore" and then picked the new disk.
The Restore RAID screen came up.
The Total/Remainder numbers represent the size of the entire Raid, not just the failed disk, is that normal?
The raid is 33TB and it is processing it at about 400 MB/s (currently). Just wondering if that is all normal.
It's my first failure with tRaid. I have added disks though since I first set up the raid, and they required using the OS disk manager and initializing and creating a volume on the new disk...but I didn't do any of that here, is that going to be a issue?
Also, is using a bigger disk going to be a problem? I don't really see anything in the forums or wiki about it. I would take a random guess and say because traid seems to deal with the files themselves and not partitions or whatever, that it would simply put whatever files were on the failed drive on the new drive, and the rest of it will be empty, but since I never was asked to create a volume or partition or what not, I'm not sure how traid determines how much to use when it creates one it self. Is it going to go based off the partition size of the failed disk, or is it just going to use the entire new disk?
