Hello,
I have a 2 drive raid with ST3500418AS Drives. I had a drive go bad so I put a Back up in and started a rebuild. I started the rebuiled in Thursday at 11:00 AM and as of today it is only at 75% complete. I really don't think it should take this long to rebuild and 500 gig HD. How long should it take?

2-4 hours, but it might be configured to rebuild at a very low rate (5%) to allow you to work with it without feeling any slowdown.

You didn't tell what kind of RAID setup you use, though.

It is a SATA Raid. I think. I'm pretty good with PC's but very new with Servers.
The program I use to look at it in Intel if that helps.

I'm guessing RAID 1.

That sounds like way too long, even with low processor. Is it done yet? I'd run a utility to check for drive errors, make sure you have good backups.

It finished after 5 days with a build rate of 90%. Now I have to run the full back up...
