Taking disks containing RAID 5 volume out of an enclosure.

Active Member Customer

Hi. I have 4 drives in an OWC Thunderbay enclosure making up a RAID 5 volume. Can I take them out to use the enclosure to certify some other disks and then put the RAID disks back in without causing issues with the RAID 5 volume? Should I keep the drives in the same physical order in the enclosure when I put them back in? Are there any other precautions I should take if I do this? From reading other threads here I suspect I can but just want to be sure. Thanks.

SoftRAID does not care, so absolutely you can do this. You can put drives in different enclosures, different bus types, etc.
