Re: ML30 G9 Disk working all the time

HP Smart Array controllers perform a background surface analysis during inactive periods, continually scanning all drives for media defects. HP Smart Array controllers can also detect media defects when accessing a bad sector during busy periods. If an HP Smart Array controller finds a recoverable media defect, the controller automatically remaps the bad sector to a reserve area on the disk drive. If the controller finds an unrecoverable media defect and you have configured a fault-tolerant logical drive, the controller automatically regenerates the data and writes it to the remapped reserved area on the disk drive.

Re: ML30 G9 Disk working all the time

Thanks Jimmy,

I just have one phisical hard drive configured in smartarray as a logical drive, so my question then is:

is there any way to stop the controller using the disk at all time?
