I took apart my flexraid confiig and rebuilt at weekend. I'd first replaced a drive (replaced S: with D:) but S: still showed in the array and when I went to SMART it showed D, but no stats. It became a real pain trying to figure out which was which. In the end, I changed all volume names to be the serial number of the drive (or at least last 11 digits)
What does everyone else do to ensure they know which drive is where and you pull out the right one when you need to replace?
I also maintain an excel sheet (now) of which drive is in which slot, manufacturer, model, capacity, RPM, warranty, vendor, purchase date
