Some more details are required: -Are you using hardware or software RAID? -What is the process you are using to try to repair the bad drive? -What is your error message, if any? Once you post some details we?ll start trying to help you figure this out.

I have a Gateway Server model 9210 Raid 5 (3 drives) Small Bus. Server 2003 and one drive failed. I purchased the same dive. Do i just shut down the server and replace the bad drive or do i hv to go into...

Hello,

With a RAID 5 setup, if you replace the drive with the exact model, you only need to shut down the server, replace the drive, power on, and the RAID will remount the new drive to the needed confiuration.

Good Luck.

I need a diagnostic tool for RAID falure code 0. Initial boot indicates degraded condition. DISK scan does not seem to remedy the issue. Did the drive actuually fail? Is there a fix? Primary disk still...

It looks like you have two arrays here. The first one being a mirrored RAID array and has only one disk. This means that the other disk has failed in some sort. This does not mean that the drive is bad, just the RAID failed for some reason. You will need to rebuild the RAID if you want to maintain the same level of redundancy.

You can just attempt a rebuild the RAID to the same drives but if this fails you will want to replace the bad drive. In order to do this you will need to make sure you can tell which drive is which. You do not want to mirror the bad drive to the good one.

If attempting a rebuild to the existing drive does not work or is not an option (because the failed drive could really be bad), you will need to determine which physical drive needs to be replaced. You may be able to hot-swap the drive but if you can power things down, that is always safest. Once the new drive is installed, you can rebuild to it and all should be well after that.

I have a usr8700 NAS running raid 5. I had a drive fail and now I cannot access any of the data. I am researching the options of recovering the data. I found a few products and service options but don't...

Hello, I don't know your particular NAS, but a raid 5 is able to survive a single drive failure and continue to supply data ok because it recreates it from the remaining drives plus the parity drive. But, if you then get a subsequent drive failing before you've replaced the original failed drive, (and restored the data to it, which is/should be automatic) then it's really bad news. So, if you definitely have only had a single failed drive then you should just get an alert to warn you to take remedial action- ie, replace the drive. If the NAS has stopped supplying data then you may have got a multiple-drive failure situation. Just a general note of caution when working on a raid array: Some raid systems are clever and you can switch your drives around, some aren't and you can 'break' these raid sets just by swapping the positions of 2 drives, which is too easy to do if they're not labelled and you're trying to faultfind ...so unless you're absolutely certain, just label your drives (and take a photo) before starting to swap drives about. Anyway,good luck with your troubleshooting.

I have an Intel® Entry Server Board S875WP1-E with Adaptec SATA raid on board. We replaced the existing wd 74 Gb hard drives after 5 years of good service. Replaced with seagate 500Gb NS series drives...

1st check what is the file system of the 75GB hd
is it on NTFS or FAT system

after you find what is it then format the 500Gb with the same file system with that of the 75GB

PERC 3Di one drive is failed how do I remove and replace without losing the container?

Replacing the drive does not remove the container on the RAID controller. If the drive has failed, and you had a RAID 5, simply replace the drive. If you had a RAID 0, your data is lost. Replace the drive, and start over.

RAID 0 Array disappeared after reboot

I would try the hard drive on another sata controller/port to verify that the bad drive is in fact bad. If it is really bad, then no there is nothing you can do but replace the drive and recreate the array (losing all data!).

You can not 'recover' a failed RAID-0 array because there is no parity or mirror data on an extra disk like there is with the other RAID modes. This is why people recommend against using RAID-0 for important data (unless you take frequent backups): RAID-0 actually increases your likelihood of losing your data. Statistically speaking, you are multiply the failure rates of each individual drive together.

Raid 5 crashed

Hi Chris,

How many drives are part of the array and what type are they? Are the drives making any unusual sounds like clicking or screeching? If not, then you should be able to recover the data. If the drives are making clicking sounds, you will probably need a professional data recovery service that specializes in Raid 5 data recovery to help you.

If the controller shows that only 1 drive is bad, you should be able to rebuild it by replacing that drive. If the controller shows all the drives are bad, then it is most likely a problem with the Raid 5 controller itself. In this case, you could try putting the drives in a working version of the same enclosure/controller.

Check the obvious also, like loose connections to the drives. Whatever you do, dont force a rebuild as this will probably result in permanent data loss.

Help please to restore the failed raid

Well if your data is gone at this point, you mines well just proceed with rebuilding a new RAID 5 set with your replacement drive. Even if one drive fails in a RAID 5 set, your logical drive should still be accessible. Goodluck.
