    RAID volumn is degraded

    I have a RAID 1 (mirror) array using 2-500GB Hard Drives in a HP Pavilion d4995t desktop. I am getting a message that says ''A RAID volume is degraded, but may be rebuilt to a non-raid disk.''
    The Matrix Storage Console window reports that the disk on port 0 as Status: Failed.

    The operating system is Vista.

    Do I need to replace this hard disk? I have a third data hard drive in the system, but I want to maintain the Raid 1 array, so I don't want to rebuild to the third disk.

    Thanks,
    Mary

    This is what RAID 1 is for, Mary, You have to replace the failed drive with the same or similar model. If the other drive in the array fails, say bye bye to your data.

    Please read your RAID documentation to see how to rebuild the mirror.
