Accidentally replaced wrong drive - able to revert?

Hey all,


so i had a power loss that seemed to take a disk with it, however it was failing with ATA errors rather than errors against the disk number itself.

i had identified the problem disk, or atleast thought i had, removed it and swapped it out for a spare. However it wasnt the actual failing disk!


Parity sync had not fully started due to the ATA link hard reseting, but it had already written to the config file the disk in it's place.



is it possible to edit a file to add the other disk back in it's place?


also is there a trick to making a disk fail without starting the parity check? I've tried hitting each of the disks with heavy read from hdparm but they all function totally fine..



Version 5.0.5 ... Yeah i need to upgrade at some stage..
