Resync not starting after disk replacement

Had disk 4 failure Monday evening.  Went to replace it today and when removing the failed disk there was no notice of disk removed.  Replaced with new disk of same specs and no ntoification of disk replacement nor any indication of disk resync process begining.  Can this unit be rebooted with out problems to see if the resync starts and/or should all information be backed up off unit first?

I''d remove the new disk and reboot.  Then hot insert it again.

I do recommend backing up the data.  It is not protected during the resync unless you are running RAID-6

Thank you for the support.  I figured that this was what was needed but you advice solidified that feeling.  Went ahead and did exactly that and worked flawlessly.  Thanks again.
