Re: hard disk replacement / cloning in raid 1

Hello,

(Redundant Array of Independent Disks Mode 1)

A popular disk or solid state drive (SSD) subsystem that increases safety by writing the same data on two drives. Called "mirroring," RAID 1 does not increase performance.

However, if one drive fails, the second drive is used, and the failed drive is manually replaced. After replacement, the RAID controller duplicates the contents of the working drive onto the new one

Thanks for your answer. but if I insert a different capacity hard disk, the raid is rebuilt anyway?

Try the software found here for cloning your server hard drives. I have personally used this, and it works really well.
