Proliant ML310 - RAID 5 keeps verifying after drive replacement

Hard drive 1 was degraded, it was then replaced (with same model drive), the system keeps verifying for two weeks now! Any ideas what the issue might be?

It has(d) 3 logical drives. Logical drive 1 is the OS (only spans 0,2,and 3 drives - used to span all 4), Logical drive 2 has now failed (recovery), and logical drive 3 keeps verifying (spans 0,1,2,3 drives).

Thanks for any help.

Re: Proliant ML310 - RAID 5 keeps verifying after drive replacement

I updated the system BIOS (v.2007.8.3), still keeps verifying. Went to the array utilities, ran a verify on the physical drive that was inserted and it checked out OK. There was an option to accept the arrays, however, I'm not sure if that keeps only the two logical drives (OS and Data) and removes the recovery partition.

Please any help is welcomed.

Thanks

It's already updated to the 4.10-4590 SATA RAID Controller Manager.

Is this a common problem on the ML310 G3's?

Re: Proliant ML310 - RAID 5 keeps verifying after drive replacement

All 4 hard drives are are Maxtor 6H500F0, 500GB. The logical drive C:\ has less than 15% of free disk space (about 1.1 GB free, 7.5%) remaining. Could that be causing the problem? The logical drive DATA has 713GB free.

Thanks again.
