I have SBS2K w/ 2 harddrives that are mirrored. Both are Dynamic. In Disk
Management Console both drives say they are Healthy but in the left part of
the window for Disk 0 and Disk 1 there is a yellow caution sign and they say
they are Online (Errors). If I right click on the drive there is an option
to "Reactivate Disk". When I it up in Help it says that the disk would be
marked "Missing" or "Offline".

What's up with this? Do I reactivate or not? Nothing shows in event
viewer. I've noticed the caution sign for a while (months) but my backups
are good and the system seems fine.

Any insight would be helpful.....
