Did a test pull of one drive in my R8 Pegausus2 running default Raid5. After checking it would still serve files I put the same drive back in.

I wanted to check it rebuilds ok rather than waiting for a failed disk.

After 3 hours its still rebuilding - It has around 7 Tb of data.

Is this normal?

Thanks

Thats great speed.. my Gen2 Drobo with 4 x 2 TB drives.. would take about 55 hrs :) to rebuild after a drive swap.

Its eight 3TB drives.

Using AJA disk speed check I get around 960MB/ sec best out of it. Cant recall if that was read or write.

Its attached to a nMP 6 core.
