I deleted the old array which was 4x mb mirrored with one hot spare, and now if I go to the Initialize Drives section of the controller utility the drives are all listed but grayed-out and can’t be selected to initialize. Mon Feb 05, The manual is always a good place to start when you have a question that needs answering.

This is driving me crazy!

Once it finished, the drives became selectable. Phones by Shara Tibken Dec 5, Fri Feb 09, 7: This function will continue to proceed no matter what otherwise. When you go into the secure erase menu, you hit enter on each drive to bring up the sub menu, and then even though there’s no mention of this anywhere on the page adqptec can hit Control-Q to cancel the secure erase function.
