As you can see in my System Description I have a 4x1.5tb RAID 5 Storage system in my computer. Welp.. the day has finally come and I am getting quite a few "Critical" warnings from one of my drives.

My question, How long does it take to rebuild the raid and honestly.. how do I do it. :confused:

I have a fresh, new drive of the exact same model, so I can swap anytime but I was just looking for some help in terms of time frame and simple instructions.

FYI: This RAID was done through my Mobo's controller.

Need more info to help me? Ask. I am all ears! Thanks in advance!
