I have a Mid 2011 Mac mini with 2x 500G HDD configured as RAID 1. Recently one of the HDD died.
I planned to
- replace the dead HDD with a 500G SSD, and
- let the RAID 1 rebuild
Is this a viable option?
If viable, should I
- Leave the setup as is, or
- Buy another 500G SSD and replace the other HDD
OS is Yosemite.
Since the question and the answers, I had went ahead to buy 1 SSD, replaced the disk in the Mini by following videos on Youtube. The RAID rebuilt without a problem.
The system "appears" to be more responsive than before.
