I have a WD Sharespace 4tb on a Raid5.
Yesterday I got a HD that crashed and I bought a new one today (exact same).
I carefully followed the steps to replace it but now when I check the Disk manager it says:
HDD 4 DataVolume 931.51 GB WDC WD10EADS-00L5B1 Good
HDD 3 Unassigned 931.51 GB WDC WD10EADS-00L5B1 New
HDD 2 DataVolume 931.51 GB WDC WD10EADS-00L5B1 Good
HDD 1 DataVolume 931.51 GB WDC WD10EADS-00L5B1 Good
As you can figure, HDD3 is the new one. I waited hours and hours and it doesn’t seem to synch.
My question is:
Is that normal? Is there anything I should do on my side to rebuilt the Raid?
(for informantion I have more that 2.5 tb data that I do not want to loose. So rebuilting the entire Raid wouldn’t be a good solution for me).
Any help or idea is appreciated.
