RAID 0 Failing, need it to last another 12 hrs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So yeah, i've got a HUGE raid 0, and one of the 3tb barracudas seems to have failed according to IRST. I checked to see if the data was still there, it is, no corruption apparent or anything. Im pretty sure that its the drive that is starting to go, and not the driver or anything as the disks are over 3 years old. (i know it is not a smart idea to do a huge raid, i was younger and naive enough to do an "experiment")

So my question is: Is it safe to power down and check the connectors on the drive, should i just leave the rig on and not touch it until i get my backup disks tomorrow, or is there something else i should do?

This is what im looking at: http://imgur.com/a/WwdzJ

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I wonder if you could shut it down, take out the failing drive, take an image and copy it to another drive with the same size and type of partition and put it back.

Late to this, but SpinFX may have a good idea there - if you do a block image copy, the new drive will be an identical clone of the failing one. However, depending on how the drive is failing, it may not come back up. OP, do you have an SMART data from the failing drive?
