drive failure in drivepool question

edited March 2013 in DrivePool

I'm about to make the switch from storage spaces to drivepool, but had a question about drive failure and what happens to the drivepool when this happens? this is with mirroring turned off, so I know data on that drive would be lost..but can the drivepool still function with the failure or does the drivepool have to be rebuilt? I apologize if this was answered, I couldn't find an answer in the forums, thanks

    Hi taaars. If DrivePool detects a drive in a pool has failed (including being disconnected or switched off, e.g. a USB-attached external drive), it switches that pool to read-only mode until that drive returns to operation or is removed from the pool.
  • thanks, clears that question up :)
