    Cannot zero superblock mdadm raid5

    Now I need to make sure the array shows up in /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf. I'm going to add another drive, partition it, and add it to the array. Then format and mount the array.

Even put in there WD Red drives and ran then in raid5. I got as far as setting it up as a Plex server. I also stored 130 GBs of lossless...

    Thank you for the response. I was wondering why so quiet! I'll look for replies here then. I'm pretty anxious to get this figured out. I am reading....a lot. Not much I care to watch on TV these days. Take care down there friend.
