View Full Version : [all variants] RAID initialization

November 24th, 2008, 07:35 AM
hey.. i have been using RAID for some time for my disks and came up with this doubt in my head ..

whenever we create RAID, RAID starts to initialize itself even though there is no data in it and the initialization(building) process takes hours to finish..

i wish anyone can tell me what happens when the initialization process is running in detail and why it takes so much time for it.. ??:)
