Yesterday a disk failed in my mdadm RAID-5 array. I replaced the faulty disk and added it to the array. The reconstruction begins. When I woke up this morning I had a uncomforting mail about a disk failure.

md0 : active raid5 sda[6] sde[5](F) sdf[4] sdc[2] sdd[3]
      3906525184 blocks super 1.2 level 5, 512k chunk, algorithm 2 [5/3] [_UUU_]
      [===================>.]  recovery = 97.8% (955205796/976631296) finish=11.8min speed=30086K/sec

Now /proc/mdstat says:

md0 : active raid5 sda[6](S) sde[5](F) sdf[4] sdc[2] sdd[3]
      3906525184 blocks super 1.2 level 5, 512k chunk, algorithm 2 [5/3] [_UUU_]

Is there a way to save the array? Or am I screwed?
