Stumbled upon this thread when reading and googling about snapraid.
I am trying to create a simple file server that would allow access to a few Linux and Windows PC on LAN and 2 more over internet. server would offer access to files as well as provide a backup of local files. and I am exploring my options.
What I am interested is about the recovery option. the OP mentiones this in the guide:

edit/change the entry in snapraid from the old HDD to the new one.

I plant to have 2 hard disks on start. One would be a faster one where data is dumped, the other one would hold a backup copy of the files and would be a slower NAS/red drive. Now as I understand this instruction one disk holds the data the other one backup and this command is then used to restore data from the backup disk. or am I mistaking? can I switch either disk if any of them fails and then do a restore?
