A few days after initial installation, I had a single drive error with my RAID 5 config. I am running three WD 500GB HDs in a RAID 5, with no other internal drives. I verified the questionable drive with slow scans. I used my Intel BIOS to add the drive back into my RAID. So far everything looked great.
But, my BIOS shows all three drives in a good RAID 5 with a status of "Rebuild." There is also a comment on the BIOS screen that "RAID 5 will be rebuilt within the operating system." I looked in Windows 7 for rebuild opportunities, but I did not finding any. So I assumed that the rebuild would be an automatic/background rebuild. I have had my system on for 1 week with no joy. BIOS status still shows "rebuild."
My question is: Am I OK? The Computer Management shows a single healthy partition at full allocation (1,031GB, with "no" Fault Tolerance)? How do you rebuild a RAID 5 with Windows 7?
