B. Rebuilding an Array
Rebuilding is the process of restoring data to a hard drive from other drives in the array. Rebuilding applies only
to fault-tolerant arrays such as RAID 1, RAID 5 or RAID 10 arrays. The procedures below assume a new drive
is added to replace a failed drive to rebuild a RAID 1 array. (Note: The new drive must have equal or greater
capacity than the old one.)
Turn off your computer and replace the failed hard drive with a new one. Restart your computer.
•Performing the Rebuild in the Operating System
While in the operating system, make sure the chipset driver has been installed from the motherboard driver
disk. Then launch the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology utility from the Start menu.
Go to the Manage menu and click Rebuild to
another disk in Manage Volume.
The Status item on the left of the screen displays
the rebuild progress. After the RAID 1 volume
rebuilding, the Status will display as Normal.
Select a new drive to rebuild the RAID and click
