So i feel this is a super basic question, looked through the FAQ but didn't see it. So I've had my raid 0 up and working since i build this computer about a year ago.

So yesterday almost by accident i figured out that i could move my hard drive rack to a different part of my case, kinda funny i never knew that till now. But anyways i would have to unplug the sata cables from my hard drive. So question time will unplugging my hard drives for a minute affect the raid at all, I know it sounds silly, and probably going to get duh it won't do anything, but i just wanted to check to make sure i didn't have mind blow total array failure lol

Simple Raid Answer. No problem.

UNPLUG the computer first for safety (don't just shut down). Get a sharpie marker and draw a single line on one sata cable, two on the other. REMEMBER WHERE THEY GO and plug 'em back in.

Actually you could likely get away with mixing up the re-plug but don't test RAID 0. Especially if you end up with the drives on different controllers... cringe.

Good luck. Nice Rig by the way.
