Hi, I just bought the linkstation mini and am running in RAID1 mode, as it will be my archive for photos and other personal data. However, I am wondering what actually happens in the event of a disk failure. Is it as simple as replacing the failed disk and restarting -- will the system automatically rebuild the data on the failed disk?

I don't need the procedure outlined in detail but am looking for some assurance that it can be done without jumping through too many hoops. It is something I would prefer to do myself rather than sending the unit back to Buffalo Tech.

Thanks for any info.

It is pretty straightforward when you are on non-stock firmware, just like with your desktop Linux.

I think it should be so on stock firmware too, but you should check by yourself by simulating disk failure.

Is the disk rebuilding process done with "mdadm"? Using acp_commander, I saw that mdadm is available on the stock firmware. Is that all that is necessary to rebuild a failed RAID1 disk?
