Had a Raid drive fail at the Data Center last week have to swap it out... And then rebuild it so I will be keeping everything off until everything is complete....

This should not take more then 2 hours!

Things that are effected are:

Just an update to anyone that cares looks like it's going to be taking a bit longer for the new drive to be rebuilt with the data from the other two drives... At the moment its saying at least 5 more hours to load all the content...

Well it was a total of 8 hours for the new Raid drive to fully restore with all the information... What a tremendous improvement server side...

I didn't realize it was going to take over eight hours to rebuild the new drive... It's kind of neat how it discovers the drive once you reboot the system then reloads the data from one or both of the existing drives in the chain... It was also amazing on how much of a difference in speeds once the chain of drives was put back to normal... I am planning on the next dedicated server build and I am considering it with a more complexed raid system... It's expensive to go Raid in the beginning but not loosing data is less costly... I want to use this current system for web hosting and the next system will be for the game servers... But I am only thinking about it for now...
