    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

    Rebuilt successfully sometime over night...so half a day at least.

    I am surprised it completed that quickly. What size drives do you have?

    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.
