I have an Intel system with RS2WC080 controller with three drive RAID 5 array. Recently they lost a drive. While in the process of obtaining a replacement drive, another drive failed. I was able to get the system back up on two drives (one of the original ones, and the second one that had failed). I replaced the third (originally failed drive) and was able to rebuild the array. Now the system is popping errors "Controller ID: 0 Puncturing bad block: PD Port0-3:1:0. I want to run a consistency check, but when I start the check I get "The virtual disk has not been initialized. Running a consistency check may result in inconsistent messages in the log. Are you sure you want to continue?". So, the question is: 1-can I (should I) initialize the virtual disk WITHOUT losing ANY data; 2- Run the consistency check anyway; 3- Kill the array and rebuild from backup.
Thanks in advance!
