That's not what I mean by a full RAID failure. I've had plenty of disks
fail and subsequent successful rebuilds. I'm saying on one occasion
(because of an oversight) I ended up with an unrecoverable RAID 5
because of disk failures.
Of course, this wasn't a serious problem because I also had backups.
