RAID Drive Repair from HDRG
The loss of a RAID hard drive may not always require RAID drive repair. In fact, because RAID’s key benefit is in its Redundancy, in most cases a single drive lost does not mean complete loss of the RAID array. In fact, all it usually means is a degradation in the performance of the RAID. What’s more, the higher the RAID, RAID 10 and above as an example, the less the performance degradation. This in itself has its own issues.

Failing to repair a link in the RAID system can provide its own issues particularly at higher RAID levels. A RAID 50, as an example, will not show very perceptible data performance loss. While on one hand this is one of the advantages of higher level RAIDs, on the other hand, it can be its own curse. A limited loss of performance may encourage a system admin to continue to run his RAID array with a single lost drive, as the degradation “seems” unimportant. And, while somewhat true, the single drive loss can be easily repaired (without actually sending a drive in for RAID drive repair), simply by replacing it. A silent issue, though, continues to lurk behind the scenes.
The Lurking Danger
The true danger of running a RAID system with a failed hard disk drive is because it opens the system up to total failure. A second failed hard drive in the system, particularly in RAIDs with several hard disks, is the true danger here, and greatly increase the price of RAID recovery from the simple cost of a new hard drive, to a labor intensive clean-room requiring professional job. When you run your RAID with one failed drive, you are greatly endangering the whole system, which can bring down not only the server, but your business.
Important Data Concerns
The often laissez-faire attitude of system administrators towards RAID drive repairs is startling considering the importance of the data stored on most RAID systems. In many corporate environments, NAS or SAN networks, mission-critical Oracle databases and Microsoft Exchange 5.5 servers are run only on RAID devices. Losing data and the input environment of any of these sorts of programs can result in major losses of productivity and increased costs.
