Hi all... I just started building a software RAID1 array on two IDE disks. Now I'm a little unsure whether it's running like it should. Looking at /proc/mdstat, I'm shown a speed of about 275K/sec and an estimated remaining time somewhat short of 70(!!) hours. Is this normal? /proc/ide/via says that the disks are using UDMA33, hdparm happily agrees but I've still got a load of 3.00. -- Got Backup?
