RAID 5 to Single HDD/SSD config
-1x SSD for Windows 7-64bits (C:)
-1x RAID 5 made of 3 HDDs with all my programs (E:)
-2x Storage HDDs
So my RAID 5 has a dead disk at the moment and at first i was thinking about just buying a new one like i used to do in the past but another disk also has a "Current Pending Sector Count: 1 " so it may run into problems if i try to rebuild my RAID ? Or is it fine ?
Maybe it's better to just buy a new HDD/SSD and put all the RAID 5 stuff on it ? But i am not sure how to do it.
Do i just create a full backup/image of the RAID 5 with Acronis and then load it on the new HDD/SSD like it use to do when i restore my OS Drive (C:) on a new HDD ? Then what ? What about the RAID ? Do i just unplug all HDDs ? Do i need to do something into the BIOS ? Like "killing"/"removing" the RAID5 ?
My goal is to avoid to reinstall all my programs or have Windows problems because the drive letter changed for example.
Thanks in advance for any help provided,
