[Box Backup] one drive headin' south - recovery methods?

Hi,

I just noticed some minor problems, which seem to be caused by one of 
the backup drives starting to go bad. I'm currently copying everything 
to another drive, several .rf-files seem to be affected (read errors 
during copy).

As the other two storages seem to be intact, what do I need to do other 
than drop in a new HD and copy everything back over to it? RAID5 should 
take care of inconsistencies, but is BB smart enough to identify which 
of the three .rf-files is defective? Or need I physically delete/not 
copy the bad files?

Tnx, -garry
