Ooh, ooh, I know this one. Is it an x346?

Did you also get "error 2807-01 Controller Onboard detected an internal error error 2200
CPPRHTS1&1 FAIL DATA: 035-253-001-20100309-58-RAID"?

Get a 71P8644. I've had two servers fail identically as above. Solid fixes.

Or use a Search Engine if your server/symptom differ.

First, buy an external storage device, at least 80GB (although it's currently difficult to find any _smaller_ size!) and make a file-by-file, folder-by-folder, backup of your 73GB of "data".

Second, buy another external storage device, and do a Google-search for "drive image freeware".
Pick one of those applications, and do a "image" backup to this second external storage device.

Third, disconnect the 3 "old" drives, carefully label them, and set them aside.

Fourth, connect the 3 "new" drives, delete the old RAID-5 array definition,
and create a new RAID-5 array definition.

Fifth, do an "image restore" from the second external storage device to the new array.

If you have any problems, all you need to do to "back-out" is to:
* disconnect the "new" drives
* reconnect the "old" drives
* delete the "new" array definition
* redefine the "old" array definition

and you're back to the "old" configuration.
