Ok, so I lost a drive on one of my 3ware RAIDs about two years ago.
I replaced the drive (with a larger one -- couldn't find the same old
small size anymore) and the RAID rebuilt happily and everything still
works today.

Just to even the score a bit ... :)  (Also, seems to have been the case
that Owen's and Robert's RAIDs were the exact same one.)

Best regards,
