When you say `replace' I am not sure whether you mean, `physically

The system can only accommodate two physical disks. So I have to
remove the dead disk first, and I'd rather the system were powered off
when I did that. :-)
So I guess another way to put my question is: if I power off,
physically replace the failed disk, and restart, how will Raidframe
react to this?

RAID without any complications.
