Media Patrol checks and repairs media errors on a hard drive. Run media patrol on a configured physical disk that is part of a virtual disk.
While a consistency check scans and reports the integrity of parity or mirrored data on the virtual disk, Media Patrol searches for errors on a single hard drive.
Media Patrol can take several hours to days based upon the capacity of the hard drive. You can continue to use the virtual disk but performance can be affected during while Media Patrol is running.
