I have a Duo Premier 4TB set to raid 1 on Windows 7 x64 and use it only for backup up files via software/syncing and Acronis TrueImage (purchased version). It is connected via a USB 3. I have only installed the WD Drive Utilities software at this time as I don’t need the backup software.
I have a question about recovery of data.
In a forum post I saw that the drives are only recognized if in the Duo enclosure. If one of the drives is bad (as an example #1) will Windows still see #2 so that files can be recovered? Is that how I would retrieve files if one drive fails or are there other options?
A second question would be If I replace the bad drive will the data on the other drive be copied/mirrored to the new drive automatically?
