The system had three 146 GB drives in a
RAID 5 array, now the array is currently running degraded to two
You have lost the data on one drive. The missing data is being
reconstructed from the parity information as it is needed. That is why
it is so slow.
It is not uncommon for a second drive failure to occur shortly after
the first one since all the drives in a RAID configuration are usually
subjected to the same environmental conditions. I recommend you replace
the defective drive and rebuild the array ASAP to avoid permanent data

That is my plan…it just happens that the spare drive I had on hand for the array was bad as well. So I am waiting for a new drive(s) to get shipped here. In the meantime I need to get this system up. I will continue to let the “Replaying” to occur. So…should I expect hours for 146 GB of data to be replaced in the journal replay?
