My System Specs

Default

results varry with RAID1 controllers. Most of the ones i have had my hands on allow you to select a RAID 1 MASTER ; when the RAID 1 is first setup and configured it will begin mirroring the entire array based on the data that is found on the RAID1 master drive. The option to do this is quite explicit when you are creating your array. If you do NOT get this option when creating your RAID1 array then you can bet your freshly created RAID1 will be completely void of data.

1) reference your documentation for the RAID device
2) be SURE you have the proper master/primary/whatever drive selected if your RAID card supports this feature (use the drive's SN to be sure)
3) backup the contents of of your RAID 1 drives if this feature is not supported.
