Hello,

oen of my 3 disks in RAID-5 filed. Now I need to replace that disk, but its legacy one Seagate 7200.9. So it cant be replaced for identical disk. Can I add to RAID-5 some other disk without fear of failure whole array?

Thanks for replies,

Its likely the disk didn't fail if your using Matrix Storage Manager 8.9

If so downgrade to 8.8 and mark the drive as normal.

Its not ideal but replacing a drive that's not the same is ok if you can match the following closely:

Make - same

Size – same or bigger

NCQ – same

Cache – same or bigger

RPM - same

Model - any
