What happens if I restart a computer that is still initializing RAID 5 Array?

I'm just wondering if this will resume if restarted.

JMosl3, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.

 

In reference to your question, nothing will happen, it will take longer for the initialization to complete but that will be all, it will resume after the restart.

Hey Alberto,

 

Thanks for the quick response! So for example, if it restarts while initializing at 20%, it'll start from where it left off? Not start all over from scratch?

Hi JMosl3, You are very welcome.

 

Yes, actually if the computer restarts while initializing at 20%, it will start the initialization from scratch, from the beginning.

 

Any further questions, please let us know.
