How offten can hard drives be removed/replaced

We are currently running a number of DL360 servers with Smart Array 4200/5300 controllers with the 2 drives configured as a mirror. As part of our DR procedure we replace one of the mirrored drives every week. We are looking for guidance from Compaq as to how this will affect operating life of the drives and back plane.

Hello,
Even there is no set life span for both the parts but you may end up damaging the Backplane board for sure.
