disk, making this disk offline does not lose datHowever, if the mirror is offline, or is not present, then
making this grid disk offline will result in loss of datThis attribute shows whether the grid disk can be
deactivated without loss of datA value of "Yes" indicates you can deactivate this grid disk without data
loss.
