Re: Putting a new HD in a Raid1
No, if one hard drive failed, you'd still have a duplicate drive to boot from.
You'd just need to replace the drive with an identical matching model (I would), for it to start the array again.
It's just if 2 drives failed at once for some reason, that you'd lose all data.
I use RAID 1 myself, and have been backing up, since one hard drive has reported it is going to fail.
