Question about Hierarchical Pooling


I currently have 2 pools (Drivepool) and (Cloudpool)

Drivepool = Several Physical disks

Cloudpool = Drivepool + 100TB Cloud drive

The main pool (local) that has all the data files is (Drivepool) currently has 12 physical disks attached to it. There are a couple of folders that I have duplicated in the pool so that there are local copies of critical files if a drive fails.

The (Cloudpool) pool is 1 100TB gdrive on a business account. This is just for mirroring the local pool Drivepool in a 2x duplication.

My question is: 

If a physical drive fails in the (Drivepool) drive what happens to the Cloudpool data? as this should be mirrored by the (Cloudpool) pool

My thought is that I would just need to replace the failed physical drive in the (Drivepool) pool and then the duplication process would copy the missing files from the cloud and re-duplicate them

Yes, that is how it would/should work, especially if you have Scanner as well. I am not a Clouddrive user so I am unsure about performance in the sense that once a drive goes bad, DP wil have to check both Pools (W: and Z:) to see which files are duplicated or not.
