I’ve had two Western Digital 1T WD10EADS drives in a RAID 1 array for 2 years and one of the drives has just failed. EADS aren’t available anymore, so can I put in a EZRX instead?
I’m using the onboard intel RAID controller (Intel Rapid Storage Technology)
Will it work?
One thing that concerns me is that the EADS drives had a sector size of 512 bytes, but the newer drives use 4096. Will this make the RAID 1 array really slow?
