Thanks for the response...

However, it doesn't /necessarily/ mean that a drive failed - they can get removed for various reasons. However, right now you are operating in a degraded mode, which means loss of another drive will cause total loss of the array. Check to see if your drive is floating around somewhere and just got dissociated for some reason. If so you can re-add it (the array will rebuild - possibly quickly depending on how long it was degraded). If the drive is failed you must of course replace it first.
How do I know why it got removed, and whether it is actually failed? Can I just try to re-add it, and if it works, great and if it fails, I'll have an idea why? I know which device it is - where do I go from there?

Thanks again...
