I've got a RAID 10 array with 5 2TB drive arranged as 2 2TB logical drives and a global spare.

Yesterday, my "main" logical drive went critical and RAIDXpert allocated space on the global spare and rebuilt the drive.  It marked the space on the physical drive as free.

However, there were no errors in the RAIDXpert log, and the drive reports as healthy, and there's nothing in the BSL, so i have no idea why the system decided to move to the spare.

My second logical drive, "extra" is still residing on that physical disk, and hasn't reported an error.

I can't see any way in the RAIDXpert interface to get my logical drive back onto the regular physical drive, or getting everything over to the global spare so I can pull the drive for testing.

Anyone have any info on how to handle this?
