But the drive that I am speaking about _was_ a subdisk in a vinum 'mirror' before I stopped using it; therefore I was thinking that the data is still on it (I haven't touched it since.) My understanding was that Vinum _reads_ its configuration from the drive on startup? So, I was thinking that if I re-connected the drive and started vinum, vinum would read its config from there? Am I way off base here? phillip. To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
