So you have at least one consistent hard read error making further
testing of the drive difficult. I might throw SpinRite at it if the
recovery of the rest of the array leaves you with missing data, but
right now I think the other three drives will be the priority.
By the way, the three drive array on my box failed yesterday. I had
replaced a failed cooling fan and afterwards two of the drives didn't
want to spin up -- loose/bad cables. A bit of jiggling and they work OK
until I can locate the replacement cables I found last week.
Have to be away from computer for a bit - will resume with mdadm later
A computer is a hole in your desk you pour time into.
