Do I have to keep my computer on while the RAID is building/rebuilding?

Do I have to keep my computer on while the RAID is building/rebuilding?

The G-SPEED eS does require that you keep your computer running while the RAID set is building/rebuilding. This is because the RAID information/data is created by the Host Bus Adapter (HBA) card and the information/data is written to the drives, and therefore requires the computer to be running.
