There has probably have been tons of questions of what to do with a “Degraded Disk”.
I have delicate data on my disk and do not wish to loose it therefore bear with me and please try your best to give me some advice.
One disk have gone into degraded mode. And I use RAID 5.
Question 1: Is my data safe so far?
Question 2: What would be my first move?
* Put the disk in my desktop Win 7
* Scan the disk with CHKDSK on Win 7
* Try to reformat it on my Win7 PC
* Stick it back into SS and hope for the best that it will resync?
Should I just return the disk to the store where I bought it and hope I get a disk with me back home. Or do they want to try to fix a HDD?
How would you do this?
