Parallel rebuild If you've ever had a disk fail in a RAID array, you know that a disk rebuild can take many hours. And with more and more deployments of really large physical disks, the amount of time required to rebuild a drive will only get longer. Microsoft addressed the issue of lengthy CHKDSK checks in Windows Server 2012, which greatly reduced the time required to scan and repair a single disk.

Demonstrations at TechEd showed a rebuild of a 3TB disk taking less than an hour.
