What Happens When HDD Fails in Pool?

Question

Hi:

I have a pool with multiple drives and some folder level duplication (with the files and photos I care about).  Recently, one of the drives in the pool failed physically.  I removed it (from the pool and physically) and replaced it with a new drive.  The pool re-balanced, but given a large number of unsorted photos, I'm actually not sure which files (if any) I lost.  Is there a way to tell without having a complete listing of my original files and folder structure?

Good chance this was asked and answered before - I did try to search the forum but couldn't find the Q&A.  Thanks in advance.

There is no database in DP so if files were lost there is no telling which (unless you have a file listing / database yourself somewhere). However, no files that were duplicated should be lost.
