Deleting an Array


Caution - Before deleting an array, be sure to back up all data on the array that you want to keep.

Follow these steps to delete a selected array.

  1. Select Delete Array.
  2. Press Y to delete the array or press N to cancel the deletion.

    After a pause, the firmware deletes the array.

    Note - Once a volume has been deleted, it cannot be recovered. When a RAID 1 volume is deleted, the data is preserved on the primary disk. The master boot records (MBR) of other disks in the array are deleted. For other RAID types, the master boot records of all disks are deleted.

E.4.2 Locating a Disk Drive

There are several ways to physically locate a disk drive, as long as the firmware is correctly configured and the drives support disk location.
