OK - Just for fun, I asked the Gigabyte guy about rebuilding an array in the future when a drive fails. He told me to go into RAID setup and select BOTH disks (source & destination) when selecting a disk within the array to rebuild. Could that be right??

Yes, that is right--I thought that is what you did. I misunderstood what you were saying earlier. Such is the imperfection of bulletin board communication

Sorry I didn't make myself clearer!

My questioning the selection of both disks came from this:

I enter the setup utility and the array (single item) is displayed and listed as "healthy". The rebuild command is in the next window labeled "Array details". In that window both individual disks are listed. Under the window heading it says "select a disk from inside the array". You use the up & down arrow keys to select a disk - but there seems to be no way to select BOTH disks before hitting the rebuild command.

I've tried selecting one or the other disk & rebuilding. Of course, nothing happens!
