windows server and raid5 

How do you swap a disk in a software raid 5 on windows 2012 server ?

It is not obvious and everyone tell me to backup the data and recreate the raid, which is kind of defeating the purpose

@kyzh It's been a long time since I windows-ed but I don't think it's changed much. See if this helps you: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previ

@jkl thank you do much, this looks the most helpful I seen.

Fingers cross it'll work for me tomorrow.
Thanks again!

@kyzh hey, checking in! Are you all fixed now?

@jkl nah, it didn't work.
I've moved the data and am about to blank those disk and make them hardware raid.

:(

@kyzh damn i'm sorry hon. If you've got another disk you might try RAID 6...

@jkl i will make it either linux software raid 6 or hardware raid 5/6 depending what the raid card supports
