Enabling Copyback

When a logical drive is rebuilt using a hot spare (see Failed Disk Drive Protected by a Hot Spare), data from the failed drive is transferred to the hot spare. When copyback is enabled, data is moved back to its original location once the controller detects that the failed drive has been replaced. Once the data is copied back, the hot spare becomes available again.

To enable or disable copyback:

  1. In the Enterprise View, select a controller.
  2. On the ribbon, in the Controller group, click Set Properties.

    The Set Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Data Protection tab.
  4. In the Copyback drop-down list, select Enabled or Disabled , then click Apply.
