revised Can we mount multiple disks as one directory?
Added info that any (mountable) filesystem will do as a "storage bucket" for mhddfs

comment Why is my linux traffic shaping script having limited results?
You are correct. I'll try to keep that in mind for my next answer(s). However there are also a few things in the article I don't quite understand but I figured it might be worth posting it still since the original poster might have gained something from the article and therefore might have been able to answer his own question and thus retaining the relevant information even if the external link goes down. Anyway - I'll try to do better next time!

Thank you very much for your answer. To hopefully clarify: If md encounters a read error will it for example attempt to reread or reconstruct. Does it attempts to move the data etc.. How does md handles read/write errors during a reconstruct e.g. is there logic to fix up the error and recover or does it simply discard the disk on any error.

Respectfully: I do not agree with you. I am asking how md deals with write and read errors and you have not answered that. Also as far as I can understand I have the right to ask questions here since I am responsible for a Debian server at work thus making me a sysadmin to my best knowledge. I do not run a raid on that machine and the raid in question is my own. However the responses I get here helps me decide if a software raid is sufficient for the computer at work. I hope this justify me asking questions here.

I am aware that the best thing is to change the disk. Thank you for the advice, but this is not answering the question and for some reason you are assuming that the data in question is not my own and that is simply not true. Thanks for your concern anyway.
