Jeremy, at the very least, I need to order a new HDD to be able to do that.  In either event, I'll need a new HDD, and ordering it tonight will get it here about Friday, unless I want to spend the big bucks to either buy one here (if they have the same model #) or pay for express shipping.  I GUESS I should call Altex to see if they have one!

Since only 1 drive is bad, why can't you just mark that drive as
offline, shutdown the computer and put a new drive in, and hotadd the
new drive to the array? This should start the rebuilding process
