  • Degraded RAID 5....

    Just a quick question.

    My performance was slower, and I just noticed (during bootup) that one of the drives in the RAID isn't functioning properly, and the RAID say's it is degraded.
    So from what I can tell I am running off my two hard drives, albeit with decreased performance.
    I bought my laptop from you guys about 3 months ago.

    My question is: What exactly do I need to do to fix this problem? Do i need to send it back to you, Do you guys send me a new drive. Can I just buy a new similar drive somewhere else and fix it?

    Thanks for any help.
