Normally, there is no reason to have to rebuild either of the internal disks. However, due to a disk failure or software corruption, etc., it may be necessary to restore either or both disks to their factory defaults. In addition, QA Cafe may create new disk images from time to time that feature updates to the underlying system (separate from CDRouter updates). If you need to rebuild either of your disks for any reason, you can find detailed instructions on how to do this here:
