Replacing drive in Raid5 array Tags: NAS / RAID Power Storage Last response: May 21, 2012 10:40 PM in Storage Share theCzar33 May 21, 2012 10:08:48 PM Hello all, I had a drive fail in my Raid 5 array in a dell power vault MD1000 This is the current drive that is in there: http://www.itcreations.com/view_product.asp?product_id=... And this is the drive I have to replace it: http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/Seagate-Constellation-... Will that be alright? As I understand the biggest potential issue is that the drive will be slightly smaller than the one in there. What happens if I put it in and thats the case? Thanks!
